Pics for you ravenous beasts...

Sorry about the ***** quality it was getting dark. Its nice to have a real sounding V8 and not some restricted wuss.

I have more kick off the line now, but I have yet to give her any love without TC off/Performance On/3rd gear peelouts

I was told to save that for a very special occasion

So..here we go

Stocker Lamps...Naxos go in soon

Thanks Don...that pic of the back of the car is not very good, they look so small, and you can't see the stainless steel of the mufflers...

It really fits nice..I have to get some day time pics...

I'm jealous
I definatly want to hear your exhaust clip since I have the exact same exact setup as your car does. You've had your car for about what? 2 weeks now and you already have new exhaust.. I"ve been sitting here talking about it for the past 5 months but never did anything with it.

Well, I'm a happy camper now, my vacation in Oct is funded. I'm getting my ELC fixed...I will post about that fiasco tomorrow and this weekend I will gut the airbox, drop in a K&N, kick in the Naxos....

The car is coming along nicely. And once this Isabel rain storm goes away...wash and wax...real this time

btw Custom, that exhaust pipe/muffler/tip set up on the stock ehaust is TERRIBLE...man

I was only going to do the tips until I realized the narrow pipes, so they cut almost to the Y-split under there and welded new pipe and 2 nice Maganflows. Its good, not to loud, yet when I punch it the V8 rumble and the Maganflow rumble orcheastrate very nicely

I suggest doing it. Well worth the $700 clams
