Default A change to the pearl

I was finally able to do the next logical performance upgrade to the Black Pearl...


SD Stainless Headers
Here is the before...

And the after...

After a nice long road trip, they blued quite nicely...

I wasn't expecting how clear and pronounced the */C became. I took it to my buddies shop and had it all welded up afterwards, I tossed him the keys and told him to drive it. He did. He had a perma-grin on his face for about ten minutes. I had to put my factory 17'* back on because my T/C system is non functional right now and it is soooo easy to break the tires loose
