Also i highly doubt your exhaust would get warrantied since you removed the rear cats.



I wish but it is right about when school is about to start back up and is a very far drive for me.
WAIT WHAT!? I reused the stock gasket and it came with the spacer RTVed to the top side. Thats no good?

It's not that RTV is no good it's just that RTV is a temporary gasket and has the possibility of wearing down with time. Doesn't mean that everything that is RTVed will fail its just a possibility. I'm not sure how mace works but with the RX black ice-o-later you can use a double gasket so you don't have to worry about RTV problems in the future.

I'm not saying that RTV is crap or shouldn't be used I'm just saying to check out your manifold because an air leak in that area can cause problems like the ones you are describing

My Ported throttle body comes in today. Can't wait to get off of work, put it on, and take it for a drive.

Thanks man! Turned out better than I hoped. I noticed the IM polished shows scratches really easily from a dirty towel or something. Have to clean very carefully

I didn't even know there was a stage 2 kit. But I'm an auto so that explains it. But if sycraft did it and he liked it, I'd think it's a good upgrade
