Not difficult, just tedious

I'm sorry you suffer from cranial-rectal inversion.

headers are supposed to arrive wed. I hope to make a decent video as well as a dyno run, and a trip to new england dragway pretty soon after the install

Ended up having everything installed by a guy in burlington, ma that came highly recommended. Thanks to everyone for the offers to help or do the install. Car now has PPE headers, Borla exhaust, HPS intake tube and Figs lca bushings. Car sounds like a beast! I will make a video once the weather clears up tomorrow or thursday. I definitely break traction a lot easier and the car just feels all around faster.

tried to do an exhaust video but the sound stinks unless you have headphones on or a system with some bass... PPE headers, borla exhaust, HPS intake elbow

On the way back from new england dragway last night a bmw 335i(not sure if stock, pretty sure it wasn't) followed me out of the parking lot and stayed right on my butt the whole way getting on the highway. I ended up doing a quick run with him from about 60mph-120ish and put about a car to a car and a half on him. He wanted to do another run but i declined as their are usually police close by the track. On a side note although a little disappointed with the time i ran the exact same time twice down to the thousandth of a second!
