no, but i did drag my exhaust off coming out of my driveway yesterday evening while running a fire call, so i guess the exhaust shop didnt install it right, so im going to coopers rock running straight off the flex. Im just glad there wasnt any other damage. i plan on doing a comp test within the next few weeks, as soon as i can find a compression tester. I might just rent one from autozone.

So I've decided that I'm getting a motor from focus power. Since my current has 2xx,xxx. I'm going to the bank this week to see if I can get the loan

9.0:1 compression, completely built internals, stage 1 intake cam, possibly a stage 2 exhaust cam, and supercharged for now. And turbo it later on. I just don't wanna run boost on my 200,000 mile motor and mess up my blower because it gets metal flake from the toasted bottom end in it.
