What exhaust is that?
CBR 1 7/8" headers from Stainless Works, custom SS 3" w/H-pipe thru a set of Borla XS Pro s.
Not gunna lie, camera video sux, it sounds cherry in person. Just wait til she s tuned, off jack stands, and outta the garage. I got couple friends with some fancy cameras n production skills. Coming soon. Got couple leaks to fix, swap deep trans pan for shallow one on my 4l80e. Than off to the tuna

How well do the CBR headers fit the TCI front subframe?
Very very well!. My only gripe is where they placed the O2 bungs. It was very tight for my NTKs to clear the toe boards and is directly in the path of primary #3. Easy fix tho, we plugged em and welded a new bung alil further down so to speak for a better averaging effect on all the cylinders. This would not deter me from buying these headers. The are of great fitment and quality. Im very happy with them. Sofar they sound great!!! You can see pics of them a pg or two ago during the exhaust build phase.

Gear swap is done. Hoping she doesnt leak. Fwiw, pretty easy to do on a ford 9". I didnt set up the gears tho. But the 3rd member swap wasnt bad at all. Uses some Permatex stuff from Summit specifically for gear oils. Bolted my seats and belts back in, i think with alil luck, we are ready for some tuning next week! Tuner wants the NGK tr55 plugs in it. I swapped em out for the tr6s. Im just bringn both sets and he can have at it.

Thanks fellas...still workn out some bugs and tuning. No dyno this year. But man, this thing rips. I can honestly say ditching the turbo build for this NA set up was right move in this car/theme. I ll get yall some more vids in the near future!
