As others have said the headers will be noticeable. From what people say here yes, 25-30 hp from headers. A tune is another 10-12. Heck I got 20 from shorty headers and hiflows. CAI like Rotofab or...

The magnaflow resonated x pipe that fits in the tunnel is a 2.5” unit about 14” long. I used it once and it does cut volume by 30%. I now have the magnaflow 3” competition catback. I have shorty...

The bmr 32 rear bar has a monster 1/4” wall. The front bar is 3/16”. I bet the difference is about 4-5 mm in actual bias. That’s all you need for a square setup. Five mm bias is fine for stock...

More weight up front lessens steering response and causes more understeer . And with small front tires understeer, like a stock car, is worse. Best tires for grip, handling and supporting weight has...

Best I can tell you really only have about 1mm difference based on Hotchkiss data. Tire psi will only help in minor fine tuning. For less understeer you increase the rear psi to be more then the...

Nothing you can do except change to a softer front bar. The most you want on a front bar is a 27 mm solid bar. Which is fine for stock or drop springs. Your front 32mm hollow bar is like a 29 solid....

A low monotone booming sound in the cabin coming from the mufflers. Itís a harmonic frequency from sound waves that are out of fase. Hurts the ears and pisses you off.
