    I could tell a little difference after my install but I think it being loud makes it feel stronger? lol

    Fuck these shops in Philly, they ALL overcharge. Best price I could get was for $750 install of headers, plugs, Y-pipe & catback, not including deleting the cats code. I drove to Rapid Motorsports near Birdsboro (15 mins W of Limerick) 1 hr 10 min ride from NE Philly. Guy is charging $500 for install of everything and $150 to delete the cats code. So with everything he is still cheaper then others install prices. Plus he has a GREAT reputation on the other site, he is a sponsor over there. It was a nice Sunday night cruise with the TTops off.

    I dropped half a second off my E.T when I put my lt pacesetters, o.r x-pipe, and dump off's on.

    You can do the install yourself, but I hope you have the time and patients (sp?....oh well). It took me and my friend a total of 16 hours straight from start to finish to put my headers on.

    Is it your y pipe or the headers scrappin? My pacesetter's never scrapped, but my x-pipe and mufflers did. There's nothing you can really do about it besides trying to raise the pipe. Thats what I did, as close to the the body as I could, but it didnt help much. Your just going to have to take it easy over speed bumps and stuff like that.

    Could do without the exhaust smell when idling, but I guess that's what you get with an ORY

    Mark---I love it! Very low rumble at idle but boy does it open up at 2000 RPMs and up above 3500, which is great around here because I can quiet her down whenever I see "The Police" Has a mean muscle car sound to it, I'm happy with my decision to go Hooker CB and ORY. Car pulls harder up top for sure, think I need a good tune though because it wasn't a gigantic SOTP feeling like some notice. Last A/F check I was already rich and I'm guessing the headers made it run richer. Gonna get redynoed and tuned after cam install. BTW, thanks for all your help with it Mark. Next spring........BIGGER CAM!!!!!
