    well just finished my lt,ory, spark plugs, and lm2 install all together it took about 7 hours with me and 2 of my friends that damn rear header bolt on the passenger side was a real bitch had to massage the drivers side firewall a lil all in all it went pretty smooth

    i notice now that there is alot more vibration when stopped at a light or sign is this normal for lt?

    Also when i put the car in reverse my rpms went down a lil more than normal

    oh yeah and it is loud as hell when you give it a little pedal! when i was driving back home from the craft shop a taxi cab caught up to me and gave me a thumbs up. the whole time at the shop people kept coming over to check out the TA. One of the guys asked what WSPD ment since i had a custom emblem on there from TSS i just laughed and said panty dropper package and continued to work on the last manifold bolt. then he started talking about how he wanted to get a ws6 but the wife told him no blah blah blah

    the only issue i have with the whole exhaust setup i have is the tailpipe tips set to high and touch my rear bumper cover a little. I tried to bend the pipes down a little with a ratchet strap but that didnt work so im gonna take it to a exhaust shop and see if they can heat the pipes up and bend them down some

    ok got a question i have a mail order tune i drove the ta with it and it ran fine still does run fine. I put lt, ory, and a lm2 on the car last saturday. doing this i also removed the air system off of the car. So now when i am at a stop light the whole car seems like it is a big sub woofer like everything is vibrating like my rear view mirrors and such but when im driving its all good. My question is did i forget to plug anything when i removed the air system i noticed a black platic can looking thing on the drivers side above the rear coil it had a tube cut off of it what is it?

    SJSINGLE1 has a great thread with a ton of pics in it- is this the part you're talking about - header install in pics? It's called a diverter valve and it has to be removed. There is also a vacumn tube that must be capped off that the diverter valve plugs into.

    its just kinda like a can to me where all the tubes meet up...if u havent pull the fuse for the air pump, shouldnt matter if you removed it but why have it in anyways.
