I removed the header heat shield and cat heat shield. I may end up cutting the stock heavy bracket out since I'll never use the stock cat again.

There are more pics of my SRI posted somewhere on this forum, minus the box. I've added one below but it doesn't show the box that the filter sits in. The hood is vented and as you can see it is functional. I'll take some more pictures after all this SNOW goes away...

Cutting the brown wire gets rid of the bogginess between shifts.

Thanks. Mounting the battery was really easy. I got a small block of wood and wedged it between the tray and the battery (since the battery is smaller than stock size). I then removed the bolt on the strap and drilled a new hole in the strap to take the slack out. Works like a charm!

also ya why did you cut the brown wire?
There are pics of the SRI on this site somewhere (just do a search). My box isn't pretty but it is functional. When I have more time I'll redo it and take a few more pictures.

Cutting the brown wire gets rid of the bogginess between shifts. Not sure if this is taken care of with the tune because I cut the wire before I got the Diablo.

Thanks. I'm shooting for 13.90's-14.0's in the quarter mile. Very possible considering the trap speeds I'm seeing (I actually saw 95.2 mph on my best run).

I have a feeling reducing the weight is going to add significant torque steer and traction problems with a 215 width tire. I already get noticeably more torque steer and I can break the tires loose on the 1st to 2nd shift and 2nd to 3rd shift.

You can offset that with a beefier tire.

They are DOT R compounds, but the 235/35R17 Toyo RA1 (now the 888) is a good choice for extra grip. Especially if this is a weekend toy (more like a street tire).

If you want to get really crazy, the 225/40R17 Hoosier R6 is GREAT!

I would definately go with a wider tire *IF* (and only "if") I could find a set of 18x8 wheels that would fit. A 225 or 235 width tire is going to have a bulgy sidewall which I'm not a big fan of. Even the 215/40's bulged out more than I liked and that's a BIG reason I switched to the lower profile 35's (that and they are nearly 4 pounds lighter EACH). I love the 215/35-18s... but I'd love them even more if my wheels were 7.5" wide instaed of 7. Love the rounded sidewall look but this will have to do for now unless I can find someone to widen the wheels I have now.

Oh, and I have 18" O.Z.s so it would have to be an 18" tire. I'm not going back to 17's, ever... heh.
