YAAAA I'm all done. Total mod time was under 6 hours. I figuered it would be 8 or so. If anyone in the area is considering doing this mod, I'll be happy to help. I have a large garage and all the tools. Baring any problems or broken parts we can do this in a afternoon.


Torquing the valve covers on.


And there she is, all done.


I have all the stock stuff if anyones interested in buying it. I'll post pictures in my thread in the forsale area.

It might be just me, but it sounds different at the tailpipe. A bit more thumpy I guess you could say. Also no popping when I give it gas and let off.

I'll let you know as soon as I pry my back side out of the seat.

You should be knocking on mid 13'* with that setup if you can get the traction. Good job.

What tires are you running

I had that problem until I changed over to the Bridgestones.

How'* your KR look?
You've got to be pushing those PEMs pretty closely...
BTW, I'm running basically the same setup, but with 1.9 Yella Terras, LS6 medium load springs, and SLP headers/hi-flow. I'm only running a 14.7, though, cause the PAU'* a lot heavier, and I'm spinning like crazy from the launch. Only way to get traction is to roll in slow, which kills my launch...DRs are on the list...

You're gonna love that thing once you figure out how to reign it in...

Just got the stock tires on right now. I hope to get something new this year. Time to start saving again.

I have ZERO KR. To help with your times make sure you get your weight as low as possible. Remove the spare tire, stuff like that. Every pound makes a difference.
