Other than needing a couple things tweaked in the tune (takes a little while for RPM to come down after a rev, and need limiter raised a bit), it runs really really well. I'm pretty happy with it seat of the pants wise, just not the numbers..but those don't mean a lot on their own. It sounds great now too. This exhaust really deepened the tone without making it much (if any) louder at WOT.

It just isn't as powerful as I wanted still...but not sure if that was going to happen without some boost And gears will probably help a lot there without adding actual power at the crank. Maybe cleaning MAF and checking tune will help a bit, but between that and the exhaust, I am not expecting miracles. A small gain would be nice though.

At the very least, I will have some definitive proof weather a catback makes more than a couple HP difference on a cam/heads car. Very little solid info on this topic. And this magnaflow competition one shouldn't be very restrictive since it's basically a resonated x-pipe and then straight pipe after that.



Best of all...I looked under it last night since it has been sitting for days, and NO LEAKS NOW! Oil temps didn't seem to be much, if any, higher after some spirited driving with the cooler delete. So that's nice
