Yeah I got one from Tracy, problem is the rubber connectors aren't a 3" (or 3.5") to 4" so I'm not too sure what I'm going to do. Hopefully Tracy has something figured out.

We might be able to get the 3.5" coupler to slide on the 4" tube with a little silicone spray or wd40 lol. I do believe the bandclamps are long enough though. If not we can get clamps from the auto parts store. I think O'reilly can get them next day.

Don't know if this will help but I've bought some T-clamps from this outfit.

Reasonable price and fast shipping,

Awesome, well I just might have to do this! I'll need to figure out how large the TB is and the other pipe that connects to the MAF tube.

Recent suspension mods are the culprit...big shocker there.

It's settled. The transformation commences Sunday morning. Tracy my installer should be calling you tomorrow to discuss plan of attack.

TB is 3" so you need a 3"-4" reducing 90* elbow and a 3"-4" reducing 30* elbow.

You got it boss. However I'm concerned that this 4" pipe isn't long enough.. It's a good 2-3 inches shorter than my current one and I already have to have a second person push the elbow while I tighten it.

Random pic @Trader Joe's in KC. The SS has a KC Trends Logo on the C-pillar. Car club? Anybody familiar with it.

Just got walked by a preppie in a CLS 550. Those things move along pretty well. SC can't come fast enough. Screw overpriced German crap. Would have been fun to be in the SC'd SS for that little game.

Edit: just looked up the specs. 382 HP doesn't stack up. His car would have walked an SS. He raped me pretty good.

Wish there was a cooler T-stat for the LLT/LFX. It is installed on the rear of the center of the engine block and only accesable from underneath toward the pass side....hours of work to remove and get back on properly....horrible design!

Thanks. Took one last pic of her as a fully operational NA car.
She's at the shop now cooling down getting ready for the RX kit.

Installer's going full bore. Gonna be taking his plasma cutter to that crash bar to free up some airflow. Working on getting the fans all squared away right now.




Look at that poor nose clip sitting over in the corner with nothing to do.

I know right? A ported TB only takes like 20 mins to install....how hard can this be right? All mods should only take a half an hour or less.
