    Did you run it open headers like the pic or did you put mufflers on her.

    Open header... I may make some turn outs but open header is the plan

    I do think that the turndowns will definitely help the noise though

    well i hit a snag tonight...

    all the control arms are bolted down nice and tight... checked all my measurements on my control arms to make sure the IC stayed the same as last year. double checked the trans bolts everythings good to go... figure ok cool just need to bleed the brakes and finish the electrical stuff.

    go in the house to find out the wife went out to the barn to ride her horse so looks i'll be doing that tomorrow. i was about to hook just the fan switch up and take the thing around the block on street tires to **** off everyone

    guess its going to wait till wednesday lol
