  • Exhausting

    While the converter is out getting tweaked, my surgeon said, "we really need to re-do your exhaust". Every time my car has came off of his lift, the car has gotten faster, so I obliged.

    Fun fact, I just found out a week ago that not only is my exhaust crush-bent garbage(knew this already) but this car has had 2-1/4" exhaust on it since I bought it in 2012. Also, the x-pipe which was put on later by the exhaust shop that destroyed my header is also going away since the inner chamber only feeds thru with a hole the size of a half-dollar. He didn't like that either. I agreed.

    Fun fact, we are installing v-bands and the backhalf of the exhaust will be removed for the track this year. I don't anticipate there being any choking on the exhaust side. It's going to be bloody murder loud.

    My hopes is that between the exhaust modifications, converter tweak, and weight tweaks at the nose this will be a 10 second car before we even touch the tune. That way I can be assured that this car will STILL run 10s even with a rollbar just in case a certain someone wants to gripe about it. My ultimate goal is to beat Burbank LSCs time on the 1/4 mile list. Numero uno.
