Okay, I need the smallest size rim width wise that can comfortably fit 275 tires. I'm getting 20's, but i'm trying to get the least amount of extra weight.. So a 20 x 9 or a 20 x 9.5?

Also is $336 per rim (Nurburgring) a good price?

20x9 will work I believe. I know 20x9.5 definitely will

The stock rs and ss come with 20x9 and have a 275 so that should work

What happens if someone encounters a problem? Do they have to pay for transport back again?

My buddy has 47,000 miles on his car. Never had a catch can. He felt gains on his car. I even felt the difference on his car when I drove it. My car has 45,000 and I felt nothing.

My car has 40k jut hit it no catch can, I felt it. I wonder why you didn't man...

I don't know how many lfx guys are in here but as for the high flow cats is there any competition for the solo high flow cats? Even with the group but that price seems over the top. Llt guys what did you's pay for high flow cats and through what manufactures?

Probably because with my vararam and ported manifold my throttle response is pretty much instantaneous. I was surprised as well but when my buddy confirmed it, I was convinced.

Us llt guys also only had solo as an option for just high flow cats. Difference is a lot of people did long tube headers since they were about the same price or cheaper and gave more gains

I bolded what I believe is the cause of why you felt no gains and heres why:

The vararam air horn does not slide over the throttle body like other intakes do. Instead it butts up perfectly against it, creating an already smooth surface for the air to travel over, while with the stock, and other intakes, there would be a slight bump for the air to travel over.

If its in the mail, that means you should get it in 3 - 5 days tops, but I'd give it more time.

If you still don't get it, call them up. Tell them you never received the check. There are options...have them cancel the check (as they should be able to tell from bank records or something that their check to you was never cashed....unless its a money order or something like that??)

From there, have them re-issue you a new check. If you get the original one, it will be useless if they cancel it.

Check was in the mail back in December, haven't been able to get a hold of anyone ever since. I do not have the number to actually call them either.

The check is probably expired by now. Call and (politely) demand for a wire transfer.

Depends on if his ingestion issue was as bad....we tear these motors down every week here doing builds and some have horrible coking at 10k miles, and others at 30k have moderate. All in the amount of ingestion causing the coking. Also, most dealers reccomend an upper indicton cleaning every 12-15k miles and do one and come back and report the feel.....(just dont do it very often as the deposits it breaks loose cause scouring and thats another issue).

Tracy what is your recommendation for an upper induction cleaning interval? I was still going to do it every 15k or so even with the catch can installed . . .

You shouldn't need to do an upper induction cleaning if you've had a catch can from early on

What's a reasonable price for resonator delete? I got quoted like $150 today, and walked out the door. Didn't bother going elsewhere cause I was tired.
