Just ordered Stainless Power (stainless works cheaper line) LT 1 7/8" headers with high flow cats!

I looked into plugs and plug wires while I was already working in that area but it seems that the majority believe the stock plugs and plug wires work perfectly.

I think so! I love the way my system sounds now, but I can barely hear it in the car, and that certainly means that people a few car lengths away cant hear it inside their cars, which is the point. HP boost will be nice as well.

Just ordered the APEX race scoop too. I already cut the area out when I had my bumper off, but, as the list of affordable mods gets smaller and smaller, I figured Id buy it.

Ha. I actually have a friend who lives sort of close to me who is going to help, mainly so he can learn and do his in a week or two.

I swear im going to make it out to some of the meets.

Do you go to back to the beach at the treasure chest?

I've gone the past 3 years. I plan on it this year. I can never convince my dad to go across the causeway with his big block 496 79 Z28

Headers are in. Sounds great, everything fits perfect.

I painted the edge of the air scoop, thinking you would be able to see it, and you can only see a few inches of it haha. Oh well.

Definitely happy with the sound, need to do a video, and get someone else to do a drive by so I can hear it myself
