    Never saw a starter let loose like that. You running 15:1 compression?

    I was just kidding -- if it was supercharged the compression ratio would normally be 9:1 or less would be my guess.

    I have the magnaflow too and love it, they are cheaper on ebay but I wanted a warranty(salt in winter kills an exhaust) so I got it here. magnaflow 15906, or you can try one of the vendors here, they are allways runnign sales/specials. either way its a great system and very easy to install.

    LMAO

    What are you talking about?


    Boner, Stop using your starter to give you the RWTQ your engine cant make. This wont happen.
