Yes the leather was rough though. I sold it for $150 to a buddy. He will reupholster it. My cranberry neon donated the leather you see in car in pictures :).

Leather wheel is mint but swapping to 03 leather wheel as soon as i get a new clockspring.

This project finally has come to an end. Had a mini stroke in a parking lot monday and tagged a cement block. This is what happens when an unstoppable force ( an engine that seemingly refuses to die under the harshest abuse for 3 years +) meets an immovable object. I was only going 5 mph. Came out o...

Under 3K there is a performance improvement as well as the top end if running off an R/T pcm. Something thats kind of hard to duplicate however if running a window switch. Runners open up to 3K rpm if WOT then close, then reopen at 5200 rpm I suspect this is to aid in leaning the a/f at WOT from Idl...

Sure the head will hold up but shit happens sometime, one over heat can ruin your day or month for that matter. Also once you add a "real" port into mix your playing with fire the more you take away.

magnaflow makes a 20" long straight through for 2 1/4 and 2 1/2 diameter. thinking of replacing SRT resonators with those, should help with backpressure and get rid of raspy sound and more importantly fit in tunnel.
