Dizzdog, when are the headers going in? I'm freaking psyched for this. You've wanted this for a while now and there is nothing more satisfying when you get them and have it installed. Take pics and video .

Thank u Dcc1464 i tired to go with old school but new school look, ok so on sunday there was a car show where strippers where judges and walking around charging people so they can be photographed. We got there a little early so my club was kinda split, 2 cars inside the warehouse and 2 where outside. Well this stripper comes up to leo and i and ask "can i take pic with ur car?" im like **** yea i mean i must be doing something right with my car right? Well she ends up on top of my hood, im like wtf, apparently leo said it was ok for her to, well that is the first and last time a chick will be on my hood, Didnt win anything, didnt plan on it just wanted to chill with my friends and look as some strippers

Wow that seems like horrible fitment for kooks headers. I can't imagine they were installed wrong because the flange wouldn't seal if it was crooked. Staying tuned for the outcome bro.

I was there when they were installed and they fit perfectly at the time of install, and I had the same ones installed by the same shop and I even had mine wrapped (which gives even less clearance) and they don't touch anything and if it did it would've been brought to the owners attention. I believe it's a bad motor mount, because like Dtrimpi said they wouldn't have sealed perfectly due to the way they're made or the movement was caused by hitting a speed bump, because the LTs sit lower on the bottom of the car.

Before I'd say anything I always make sure it's going to be correct. I knew it happened after you left, because I was there for the install and being a fairly simple job it went quite smoothly. Plus you were referred by me they made sure the job was 100% on point. Johnny consulted me on your tune whether to jack it up or give you a nice dependable tune utilizing proper A/F ratios, running right on as opposed to rich or lean, and trying to get your IATs as lower as possible. Could he have jacked up the tune to inflate the numbers, of course, they all can! But I choose dependability based off of our conversations and what you told me your goals were.

Sucks it had to be a motor mount, but I guess it could've been worse. Good luck with your mods in the future, JR has a great reputation and I'm sure he'll point you in the right direction, I have quite a few of his performance parts and they're top notch.

Hey Pierre,seeing that your in Lebanon how did you get the tune? Mail order? I've just moved here from London so not sure if there is anyone out here in Dubai who even knows what a tune is! They'd probably hand me a CD and say here you go

I sent my ECM to hennessey for the tune and AFM delete with DHL and they did it and sent it back the same way but it cost me another 200$ to send it round trip.

Merry Christmas Dizzy hope you're having a blast .
