    I took off my TSP rumbler to realign it and had to go to a car meet before I could get it back on... so drove the 20 miles open headers.. and the first part of the trip was kinda cool.. loud as hell... but rumbly and mean.... then it got old... then the fumes started giving me a headache... drove home.. and when I hit my subdivision.. I had to coast at 5 mph through it so I didnt get the cops called on me... oh yeah.. and in most if not all places... driving open headers is ILLEGAL!... Just FYI.

    Even driving the fumes got to you or was that while you had come to a stop light?

    Yeah, the Jacksonville, NC cops didn't appreciate it when the group (and my with open headers) heard THEN saw us drive into the restaurant parking lot... they paid us the favor of walking out and yelling at us... lol

    Yea NC cops are mostly a bunch of assholes every once in a while you will find some nice ones. But ones around military bases are some of the worst to have to deal with or get pulled by not all but most.

    That sounds really good I have never heard of a butterfly valve, I used to have a 3.8 97 bird myself before I bought my t/a back in july 2010. I run the dog shit out of that car as a teenager it was a really great first car to help me learn how to drive, and the chicks liked it.

    I work on the Navy/Marine's computers.. so I go where the bases are. I was almost ARMY.. as my dad is a retired 1st SGT.. but decided women boss me around enough.. why the hell would I VOLUNTARILY join an organization that will do that and more for the next XX years of my life... pass. SO I went to college.. got drunk a lot... and ended up with 2 pieces of EXTREMELY expensive paper that basically state I can be taught.. lol.

    Those 5 years in College were by far the most fun I've had in my life... I'd go back again if I could find away to pay for it without having to have 7 jobs again.
