If you're going to do cams you should do intake, header, exhaust, and a tune to open the engine up and allow the cams to work to their full potential
i've been going there for 30 years now. lol

hey, i can't help but ask, do the chp give you any trouble with the header/exhaust? i always see a tun of them up there when ever i go... i know you must be pretty loud going up 120.(that's 120, right?)

I have a resonator besides the high flow cat and muffler, so it's really not too loud, but I try to limit my driving through downtown Sonora, it's loud as hell with buildings lining narrow streets lol
No problems with law enforcement as of yet (knock on wood)

Should be fun, but it probably won't be for a few weeks since I don't get off work until 6 or 6:30 on Wednesdays so I'd have to request time off to get there in time to race

Sorry had to got to class, but yeah I understand that your job wont let you off to race.

I live in Fairfield you live in Twain Harte, does anyone know a good drag strip between us?

I know of only two in my area (sac/sonoma) it wouldn't be fair for you to drive all the way over here.
