@  KennyL : (26 February 2015 - 07:17 AM) The header is an OBX long tube, but the 2.5" taper and 3 bolt flange has been cut from the collector and a 3" V band welded in it's place. Should pound the ground when ran as just open header, not that I would do such a thing in the long run. I have to try it, though. Later, I'll have a 3" resonator and 3" mandrel bends going back to some sort of muffler, probably 3" in dual 2.25 or 2.5 out turbo muffler.
@  KennyL : (26 February 2015 - 07:15 AM) Haven't gotten a message back about the wideband yet. Tracker on the long tube says Friday. Mighty fast. Grand Prix parts should be here today.
@  KennyL : (24 February 2015 - 08:30 AM) Header on the way. Heh.
@  KennyL : (24 February 2015 - 05:42 AM) 3" dump is overkill for N/A, will be loud as hell, but I don't care much. Heh. It'll be a more optimal design once I can refresh the engine for supercharging.
@  KennyL : (24 February 2015 - 05:01 AM) Have a PLX wideband on the way, talking to a guy about a long tube header with 3" dump. I'ma need some engine gaskets to fix the oily spewing, a timing kit to be safe and some odd 5 speed parts and bolts. No engine rebuild as of yet, just keep it from leaking oil and get the car driving again but with 5 speed.
@  KennyL : (23 February 2015 - 01:08 PM) Welp, I have given in to my urges. I only got the required parts to fix the Grand Prix and no go fast bits...this leaves budget for Stratus parts. :devious:

James Dean Festival is mostly 50 & 60's rods and Ducktail is a mixture of One off customs, rods, and new cars. Well worth the drive!
