Muddflap's Build Thread..... UPDATED!!!! Page 2

I decided to start a build thread even though the list is short for now. I will update as I make progress but for now I installed the TSP 1 7/8 long tube headers with off road connections the other day and my ADM Race Cold Air Intake should be here in the next day or two. I will post pics of it as soon as I install it. Then will be making the drive to the DFW area to get her tuned by Rhino with Gwateny Performance. Thanks for viewing and hopefully I won't have to keep yall waiting too long for the update on the cam. Will attach video of the exhaust as soon as I get a chance. Can't to it from the iPad for some reason.

Sounds good muddflap! Sounds like you have a good tuner too!
Mods might move your thread muddflap to the section for build threads, it's members car journals! (just a heads up)
I use Photobucket for pics and video on my IPad! Hope that helps and keep us updated!

Thanks bro...this video doesn't do the sound justice. A friend that lives about 4 or 5 blocks away says he can hear it when I get on it.

Hoping to get dyno numbers next weekend.

Just a little update..... Those that I talk with on here already know my plan is to go VVT on my LS3. After talking to Rhino79 and asking stupid question after stupid question I feel like for what I am wanting out of my car this route suits me best. The quote I got from the guys at Gwatney was a really awesome quote. It was alot lower than I was expecting and not much more than doing a cam upgrade the right way even if I was staying with a plain ol LS3. I am still a few months out before we will start the process but I wanted to give everyone that follows a heads up and if anyone else would like to follow to see the progress once it starts this is where you will need to be.
