GOT HER BACK GUYS!



The rod bearings were caught right on time.

New arms and bushings front and rear, new tires and alignment.

Everything is in spec.

PS: Shifting is a bit off, I was shaking like leaf! I was very worried I was disturbing the neighborhood.

Sounds interesting. Is that a straight through exhaust with no mufflers or resonators?

That does sound interesting. What brand mufflers? OE cats? Sounded like a large diesel truck in the first drive away shot.

Love the supercharger intake sound.

Yes OE cats and itís a single muffler. I canít remember the name, Itís pretty long, glass filled dual in, dual out.

If you scrub the first pass and pause it, youíll see the atomized water/meth blow out. It has probably burned a lot of the glass in the muffler. LoL.

Also, it probably reminds you of a diesel, because of the blower. It has all the sounds a turbo diesel would have, other than the sound of the fan in the exhaust like any turbo. My fan is constantly under boost because it is belt driven.

In person you can definitely hear the blower through the exhaust. The intake has a sound of its own.

Our mic used in the video is not of the best quality. I highly recommend using ear buds headphones to achieve the proper sound.
