Stainless Works headers are on! Thanks Anthony for the rush shipping. Ddavis and Wiccajew helped me install them and Ddavis's wife has the patience of a saint to put up with the screeching and hollaring session we had in the garage for the few hours trying to get the damn pulley swapped. That's a story in itself! It was all worth it in the end. 7 hours for removing the stock exhaust (headers to muffler tips) and installing SW works headers and a Procharger pulley swap.

Blu808 is installing my Flowmaster exhaust tomorrow and the Rush is getting tuned on Wednesday. Hoping for 580+.

I'll have a video of the startup running open headers for my drive home tonight soon.

Here's a cold start this morning on the way to blu808 to sort out the exhaust debauchle. Got a ticket 1.5 blocks from my house for defective muffler. At least it's a fix it ticket which I should have signed off this week since it was corrected today.

Well here's what the final exhaust looks like. Blu808 spent more than 5 hours making everything perfect. The bends, the angles, the length, everything. Luke and Conrad didn't want to half ass anything. Towards the end when everyone was tired and the tips were half an inch too low or 1/16th of a n inch to the side, Luke went back and fixed it as best he could. The end result is stunning. Notice all the welds that were done (1 behind the rear 02 sensor, 1 right behind the clamps between xpipe and bends to get around the diff, 2+ on each muffler)

HUGE THANKS to everyone at Blu808 for putting up with the nightmare that was trying to install this set up. You guys truly are master fabricators.

A fix it ticket with lt's on the car would make me a little nervous since they will be looking around under there to sign off on it
