    Thanks! The buttometer says more power. My clutch is slipping more than ever when I try to burnout. From a roll it flies, noticeable difference. Most significant change is the sound honestly, much beefier and louder.

    Yes, going for a tune on Thursday at PCMforless in Mooresville, NC. Very exciting, looking forward to hearing my car on the dyno.

    Can't wait to hear about the tune!!

    Sweet. I'm really interested in how the PCMForLess tune goes. I thought they were mail order only. I live in Charlotte and Mooresville is only about 45 minutes from my house.

    What's it going to cost for an on-sight tune?

    Not sure yet on cost, but yes Alvin does dyno tuning. They are housed in the same building as Tick Performance, both well-regarded in our area. Last time I was there they had a wide range of cars, from newly cammed, to blowers to turbocharger cars in the tuning shop, so I am sure he will do a good job on my bolt-on car. I'll post the results on here

    The tune and dyno was $300. I would definately recommend getting it done on the dyno in person vs. mail order.

    Thanks for the dyno feedback. Nice. Reasonable price, too.

    I was looking at the install pics again. Those headers look just right in the way they fit. OEM-like. Good stuff.

    Everything working ok? No codes, y-pipe banging, etc?

    The headers and Y fit perfectly with no contact or banging. The only issues are I had to remove the crossmember under the Y pipe and driveshaft because the new pipe is larger than OEM. I also have a little rattle in my catback that I am fixing with a $10 exhaust hanger to hold the over-axle pipe up a little higher.

    I had codes thrown for Catalyst insufficiency and O2 heater issues - just had the tuner delete these codes from the computer during the tune and no more SES light

    Thanks for the comments

    My car is still at stock height. The cats are about 4.5 inches from the ground on this setup.

    Best of luck with your install

    Looks great!

    Many also report gas mileage improvements with LTs.

    Let us know if yours improves your mpg.

    Icing on the cake if you get 22hp and better mpg too!

    Actually yes I am getting 2-3 mpg more so far, about 40 miles more range on a tank, pretty sweet...
