    allright, where did you pick up your motor mounts from? Ill def have to address that while im under there. Wonder how many other people are running into that issue. If its a lot we should see if we can get that put in the headers sticky so other guys dont run ito the same issue.

    I lucked out. I bought mine on Ebay from a guy that changed his mind and went solid mounts.
    Yes, a lot of guys do have a problem with the steering shaft hitting, and some have issues with the right or left header (can't remember which way the engine twists) hitting the floor on hard launches. I had both issues on mine, but one of my mounts was starting to tear.

    I would skip the solid mounts. Some guys love them, most hate them for DD. It will send all of the vibration from the engine into the chassis. This is worse as the cam gets wilder.
    The header kit I got came with all the gaskets, bolts, and clamps. I haven't had a single leak from the supplied gaskets like some others have had.
    Don't forget the O2 extensions. The headers I used didn't require them, but most kits do.
    One piece of advice i wish I had read. DO NOT spin the steering wheel afteer the shaft is removed. I snapped my clock spring when I forgot how many turns I went with the wheel.

    Thanks for the advice, ya I've heard both with the gaskets ill prolly still pick up a kit but I'm gonna call today and confirm what exactly comes with the LTs ORY and cat back as far as gaskets and clamps. Completely forgot about the extensions so thanks for the reminder there, hopefully by tonight ill have a complete cost.

    Good deal. I think he is out from today thru the 21st. He may have access to his e-mail though during that time, I'm not sure.

    Thanks!

    AIR/ERG Delete is easy. took me 15 mins and i even took off the wheel for some dumb reason

    CAI... just get a lid and different bellows

    exhaust. i have the same as 35th and i put EVERYONE and EVERYTHING to shame.
    yes it has the rasp but it sounds fantastic at 4k rpm. i have a friend with a 6.0L silverado and he shit a bring when i rev'd it up next to him

    Look at TSP 1 7/8 LTs with Moroso TDs. that has a little less rasp but i didnt go true duals because i didnt wanna loose any more ground clearence

    tune.... ive heard nothing but good from frost. and ill be sending it off tuesday for some bold on tunes

    ya if i had the money for kooks i would have def gone that route but i didn't. Ya ive read some threads on the AIR delete, seems simple enough. Ya seems like everywhere i turn when it comes to tuning FROST's name comes up so Im Def going to use him for my tune. Waiting to here back from him monday or tuesday after he returns.
