    Car trouble

    Has anyone had this same trouble with there car, i have a 04 gto with some minor mods but when i floor it, the thing feels like the front is lifting up because when i floor it my steering wheel feels like it locks up and i cant really turn it on wot. The only thing that i would think is i put on some long tube headers alone so i don't know if i hooked up something wrong on the suspension or the drive-train, it only happens on wot. The other thing is when i floor it iam getting something that feels like its banging under the car and i feel it on the gas peddle.

    your headers are probably hitting your steering shaft.. Make sure your bolt isn't contacting the primary

    Yeah there are a few different headers that have some fitment issues with the steering shaft. Sounds like it's time to get the big pry bar out and do some primary tube mods.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!
