    Why part one ? Because the parts ain't here yet supposed to ship today ..

    Ok i searched and read and read and read some more and decided i wanted Vance and hines True Duals but was worried about bottom end.

    Well i came across a Kit that turns the exhaust into a true duals and from a dyno run i saw and forgot to copy where it didn't lose any bottom end show 1 more footpound of torque over stock .. im not worried about gain just loss.

    So i decided to try this out Basiclly it replaces the rear header and H Pipe.. so it moves the pipes away from you so you lose heat also .. the front pipe stays the same and you get a extension and new header for rear Cylinder..
    pics on the kit when it comes in ..

    Here is how ya take her down ..

    Always Remember to remove youre fuse yada yada.. though i didnt i wanted to listen to the radio on it :)

    Heres a Pic of my helper..

    Once its out of the way then ya can get to the Slipons Loosen the Clamps at the header pipe and slip on and loosed the shields

    After that remove the bolts from the rear mount and prepare for a lot of wiggling

    Now to the other side

    [​IMG]

    loosen the clamp and then the mount bolts

    time to get this far hour and a half or so .. and lots of wiggling a whole lot of that and pulling.

    I was going to put the Mid frame heat shields on i got for Christmas but after seeing how much they would block thats for another day..

    Hopefully Next weekend will be part 2 and finish on that one.
