Pretty sure most of them are, I know the '89 civic that placed second is.

i'm in need of a flex/orp/cat for my car. eventually i'll be going with a 3" exhaust so i would prefer to pair that with a 3" "orp" are there any out there? people that fab and are willing to make them for others?

also, is it terribly bad to be boosted on the stock exhaust? (svt)
i'd only be running like 7-9 psi on the stocker.

yep, another question!
i'll be tearing my car apart here pretty soon and i was wondering about how you guys stored your cars while putting your kits together? i don't think i'll start tuning until the spring, because in my mind i feel like the winter would skew the results.. any truth to this??

thanks

The stock SVT is 2.250 exhause and can get you to 280 to 300 just fine , 3 inch down pipe isnt really needed till about 350-400HP

Winter wont mess with the results at all in fact the cooler weather will make more HP and TQ

question..
after waking up to snow and more coming tomorrow, i've decided i want to wait until spring to install my kit.
as it sits i have the header, cat, oil separater, and intake all off of the car and i was wondering if it's okay to let the car sit like this for the remainder of the winter? our winter should be winding down in about 5-6 months from now.

thanks.

Edit: my car is kept in the garage if that makes a difference.
