wife's 1st time out

Well i am very happy with the car she went 12.81 with mods in my signature track got s/d due to late oil down i think we could have gotten into the 70's .Now fixing to order the headers and full exhaust from Apex should put her deep into the 12's

Nice run! I would put headers on first before you change the exhaust. Headers with factory exhaust sounds good and there is no power in a cat back exhaust on these cars! I run in the 10's with factory exhaust. What brand headers do you plan on getting?

Thanks not sure who this is but Allen did some tuning years ago on 4th gen. I had anyways prob. Just Stainless works was stuck between them and JBA think i rather Stainless sound i was going to go with headers high flow cats and full 3" exhaust all the way back so you don't see any real gains between headers /factory exhaust vs. Headers and full exhaust.

I'm Terry, Stainless works are good headers and yes there is no power in a cat back exhaust on these cars just sound! If you want it louder go with no cats.

Great saves me some money then so i will just go w/ 1"7/8 headers /high flow cats to stock exhaust then i will use extra money towards tune or converter.
