Default Some rainy day pics (+ PEM install pics)

Notice no more gold pin-striping? I've still got on black pin-stripe, but plan on removing it and replacing it with a 1/2" black stripe because it looked so sinister in the photoshop my buddy did the other day.
May also remove the 'Blown' emblems for the sleeper look.

Also, the tires I just bought and have on the car now (as seen in pics are 235/55/16 Dayton Daytona V-rated tires).

Notice the weld where the # 3 runner meets the main pipe -it'* cracked almost all the way around. Then I tore the heat shield off the crossover and found the nasty crack that I figure was a major reason for my loapy idle.

Benefit'* I know of without scanning after installation:

#1: No more loapy idle.

#2: High rpms under load feel a lot smoother -engine revs under load almost as smooth as the Series II L67 in my brothers 97 SSEi.

#3: Even though I've been battling fouled plugs, a chopped # plug wire, and detonation (I need to work on my fuel system now), it pulls harder and smoother than ever before.

#4: 5 minutes after turning the engine off after some hard driving I can grab the manifolds with my bare hands and the feel hot after about 3-4 seconds -couldn't go near the stock one'* for almost an hour without getting burnt before.

I'm liking the Blown. And those PEMs look clean as hell in there.
Any chance we could get a butt shot of the 96+ rear?

I wonder if very many people(besides BC) notice you have a 95 front with a 96 rear. I agree with you, you should remove the Blown emblem for more of a sleeper look

PEMS look great!

You're missing the spark plug wire routing thingy there, gonna lose another wire if you're not careful. Not like I speak from experience in this matter... No not at all.. .
