Ok check engine light fixed and misfire gone. Bad connection at coil cyl #1. Pulled coil and plug to be sure, put it back together and Running PERFECT. As soon as the clutch line shows up and we get it bled its time to get it on the road. I love when you change like 8 million things on a car and its something as simple as a bad connection. Here we go

Epic WIN.

Can't wait for some driving videos. I love the sound of big snails spooling

Hopefully on Map 0 we'll be at low 500's? without a hitch

Tony, do you have a very rough ballpark of the weight difference from the stock snails and piping? Please don't take this question the wrong way, I know full well the added power will more than offset the weight.

But I am in a weight reduction mode for track and am considering, amongst a few options, including changing for a C6 vette (lighter).

Thanks!

Kenneth I did not weigh them, they are quite shit heavier then the stockers. I should have weighed them.
