You need to research a little and don't be afraid to call the vendor and ask questions like clearence for aftermarket exhaust. There's only some much space under there and it gets tight quickly. I can only speak from my experience with UMI. Yes a site sponsor but more importantly they take the time to answer and help their customers. The products are strong as hell and well worth the money. I've always had great support from them, because of that I plan on doing my whole car with their stuff.






    he gets that every time he posts that pic..... usually from me It's not like he doesn't drive it. I've seen pics of him at the track and a video or two on the street.

    ...........and thats SO important too! as a customer i want to be able to ask for help and not be brushed off like im bothering them...after the companys got my cash!!..I like a company that is interested in me being satisfied and happy...a happy customer is a returning (repeat) customer!!.. The happier you are the more youll be likely to spend,a real sharp business will pride themselves on the customers satisfaction as priority ONE...and if a mistake is made making quick and fair decisions makes it all the better.UMI seems to have that reputation and thats ''key''.......

    TB bypass is exactly that -- the stock coolant line from the engine runs to the throttle body and then to the radiator. It is designed to keep the throttle body from icing in cold damp conditions. Not necessary as most of our cars never see that kind of weather and the last thing you want to do is heat the incoming air charge. I'll be doing mine in the next few days... just something I never got around to.

    Line lock -- great for burnouts and the track. No tearing up the rear brakes everytime you want to have fun. Push the brake pedal, flick the switch, release the pedal and the front calipers are "locked".

    Free Air -- cut openings in the bottom air box to draw cool air up from in front of the radiator into the air box. Not one I have done or plan on doing, but lots of guys have.

    Line Lock =







    This is after I released the line lock and rolled out....




    This is not my car in this video but is one from a member that used to own it. It is still missed....












    Warning - Line Lock use will lead to massive tire replacement.....not responsible for the fun you'll have

    Just run it from the tube at the front of the valley cover directly to the radiator, making sure it stays out of your serpentine belt. I believe the hard part is that the tube and nipple on the radiator are two different sizes.

    Okay...SFC's...bolt on vs weld? I got a MIG but no lift, and you all know what a thrill welding is while lying down. Tubular vs boxed? Can you put a jack anywhere on a tubular like you can with boxed? I'd guess...No. I've read a thread that says by doing some susp. mods, more noise is transfered..T/F?

    SFC's

    Bolt on is kinda best of both worlds. You can bolt them up and later if you want weld them in.


    box vs tube - box is mathematically stronger. Jon our resident engineer has figured it out. Both are good for the car.

    2pt vs 3 pt - 2 pts are good for track and dd use, 3 pt is much stronger for the car and lessens body flex more. Great for autox racing.


    Brands - I've gone with UMI (site sponsor) good company and highly recommended. Product is strong as hell and customer service is great. Have questions, give 'em a call.

    + 1 for UMI. Great stuff made right here in Pennsylvania. I run all UMI on our car and the fit, look and build quality is all top notch. Recently switched over from 2 point bolt-ins to 3 point bolt-ins as our car is built up quite a bit more now than it was 3 years ago.
