So I bought this: 11' Grand Sport 6spd manual. Previous owner put a cat back straight pipe exhaust on it. Aside from that its stock. Factory shifter sucks so I have a MGW flat stick on the way. Not sure what route to take. Thinking heads, cam and headers and calling if fun and done......wouldn't know what setup as there seems to be plenty of stuff to choose from. I need to get a baseline dyno done and lucky for me there is one here in the town where I work. 

BTW, chrome old guy rims are not long for this world.

I like the Kooks aside from the cost. I was considering Hinson also but need more info on them as to how they compare. Seems most people do the 1& 7/8's. The car has what looks to be 3" straight pipes from the cats back with no mufflers. Nice exhaust but haven't gotten a good enough look to see the brand but all stainless. Love the over run pop pop pop! Put a AFR dry filter on it tonight. Had the factory clogger in place not sure how those breath as dense as they are.

LOL, still here. My job keeps me busy. 

I have been working a little on the car. Had a friend remove the front plate holder and repaint the nose and splitter. Also installed  MGW Flatstick which is possibly the most satisfying $390 investment I have ever made for a car. GM should be ashamed of the flimsy stamped crap they install on these cars. Absolutely no comparison with shift action. Hardest part was unplugging the electrical connections in the console. 

As far as headers I have not made up my mind about headers. I have been looking through reviews of the speed engineering and honestly for the price difference I am having a hard time justifying the Kooks. Also may hold off as I may start building a 4 car garage behind my house. And now there is the question of boost............eventually.

And I deserve a supermodel girlfriend.

Somethings just ain't gonna happen.:lol:

 

I may still do kooks. See some occasionally pop up on other forums. But why are they worth double of other headers?

Fixed?  Or have things changed?  :)
