So I thought I would post some updates. I picked up the gaskets for my header today. My friend is coming home this weekend from college so hopefully that will get put on sunday. I texted the guy about the lowering kit and he will let me know the total tomorrow, so I will have it ordered tomorrow! :D It will take 2 or 3 weeks to come in though. Oh and for anyone who would like to nom me again, then please do! Im in the running to be in the top 5 for ROTM again. Thanks!

My header is now installed. It took maybe 4.5 hours. I was debating on making a thread about header stuff. lol But decided not to. It was going to be about tips and whatnot. Yeah the first 40 minutes was just tryng to get the flippin heat shield off! My friend and I snapped 2 of the bolts and the other 2 came out. Once that got off it was smooth sailing until we came to the super rusty bolts on the exhuast. Had to torch them off eventually after we spent awhile trying to get them out. It probably only took 30 or 45 minutes to put it on. It was mainly just dealing with the rust. Oh and the 02 sensors and the EGR tube or whatever it is. Had to bend that to get it where its supposed to be. No codes have been thrown yet though which is good. I took it for a test drive.I liked it up until it got up in the RPMs. It was pretty much near where I normally shift too. Sounds like alot of angry bees. I will probably drive around with it like this for a bit and if I really cant stand it either take it off or see what the exhuast shop says.

Yellow fog tint ordered off ebay last night. Im stopping by the shop here in an hour or 2 when this class ends to see how I can fix the sound without spending alot of money. I might just wind up taking it off. lol

Im going to lay my flip camera in the hatch tomorrow and record it. I was laughing my balls off on this huge hill on 71 it sounds so terrible. People were honking! It sounds majorlyyy dumb. I will record the video tomorrow, and edit it so you dont have to watch an hour of boring driving. lol
