I don't know about the same place because I don't know where you broke yours at. Lol but it's one of the 4 middle ones the ones you have to torque 18lbs it broke and now it's just sitting in there and I don't know how to get it out so I can put another bolt in there.

Since everyone seems to want to know about OBX headers, i took some time to take a few more videos of a cold start up, warm start up, highway driving, and 6th gear 65 mph driving as well so you can hear if there is drone. In my opinion, i love the sound.... Idk if its the meanest but its the meanest in my eyes

Right now I am running whats in the sig. Mainly, the difference is i am running no resonators and no cats while having longtube headers and a mrt2 axelback. I hope you enjoy these videos



First up is a Cold Start Video




Next up is a Warm Start Video




Here is some normal car accelerations in 2nd to 4th gear while never passing 2k rpm




Lastly here is some highway driving. Here ill show drone, accelerations to 4k rpm from 2nd to 5th and hill climbing in 5th gear








Sorry i didnt take any good RPM revving videos, but i can assure you it sounds sexyy. But in reality we dont rev our cars everyday, maybe some of you though , but here is real world stuff for some of you who like to accel to 3-5k rpm isssh just to hear the exhaust. Cold starts were done at 730 in the morning after car has sat in garage for 12 plus hours in 75 degree temp controlled garage. Hope you all like it.






FYI, the videos in my build thread when revving are when i just got them but now they have carboned up and sound much more throatier and meanier. I might make a rev one, i just dont like revving it much cause i feel obnoxious but i am going to the dragstrip tomorrow so ill take more videos

Car is looking great. You should really consider doing a front fascia blackout like for the area infront of the grill and headlights. Kind of like the one on my car

UPDATE:

Car tuned my LMR and gained 13 hp with a quick built tune by stephen. Retuning monday most likely as gains are still to be had while datalogging to do. Looks promising. Reading high 270 on the dyno that day. so maybe mid 13s may happen in the 1/4 mile now

J_Vibe,

Have you been posting up any information on this tune elsewhere? Just curious b/c I haven't seen you post up much about it, other than what your plans were before you got started.

Would love to see anything you can give us. Before/After dyno sheets? Also, I can't remember, but was you on the stock tune before or not?

I've found some info in the V6 Lounge, but that's about it, and frankly that is about the worst place to post up important stuff like this with how fast and random that thread goes lol. I did a search on J_Vibe's posts and I don't see that he has posted anywhere else.

Saw that he didn't seem to happy in his last post. Hope all is well.
