    Thats what I'd like to know too. After I do Headers and Exhaust, I'm going to try and get it tuned. Seems like all the tuners are out West though...

    BTW: Hows that true dual exhaust you fabbed up coming?? Are you going to be producing them? I was very impressed with the prototype, come Spring I'd like to buy that system from you if at all possible

    I found a guy to tune my car. He's close to Philly. I will know more when I get in contact with him. I will let you know.
    As far as the true duals, they are on hold. Basically, I made the proto-type and a couple of hours latter after it was finished, some dude cut me off on the road. Demolished the car. The proto-type exhaust made it though. Since I started the project, it is up to me to finish it. Well I have been out of work on disabillity since the accident on August, 11. I will be going back to work in about a month and I will keep in touch with the progress of the true-dual.
    What headers are you going with?

    I'm really sorry to hear about that man. Best of luck in your full recovery.

    I'm most likely going to go with the XS Stainless Steel headers from eBay. Normally I wouldn't buy eBay parts, but many people have had good experiences with those, and you can't beat them for the price. So as of now, thats what I'm figuring on.

    Like you mentioned, keep me updated on the progress through PM's if you can. I'm definitley interested in purchasing that system from you, it looks great. I'm looking at doing the exhaust as soon as the weather changes, probably in March or somewhere around there.

    That tuner sounds promising too, we'll keep in touch.

    Yep! I'll PM ya. I am going with the same headers. I might do a ball flange instead of a collector reducer or a slip-fit. I'll hook ya up.

    Sounds awesome, I think the ball flange is a great idea.

    Thanks again

    Agreed.

    Heard similar things about the infamous '98 PCM when I bought my car, and laughed the very night I installed the heads and cam. Been tuning engine's ever since the advent of TPI, and tuning the '98 went very smooth, even with the more aggressive LSK lobes....
