Buttoned up the exhaust.

Yea was nervous. Had a coolant system issue but was A stuck thermostat.

Now I just have a minor exhaust leak on the hotside where the vbands mate up on driver side. Going to see what I can do to rectify this without cutting and re welding.

The kit must have warped. I know that I didnt have this issue when it was on the old motor.

Finally got I car idling some what smooth. Once I get that squared away then start street tuning!

Try loosening the header bolts/ studs connect the v bands tight then tighten down the headers again. Might fix that issue

wat happened with this
Got the car together. Tuning it myself and stumbling abit... have the gate on 4psi while tuning. Have fuel got to 4-5k rpm. This tuning thing is difficult with no guidance.

Then winter came it project stalled. This spring should have her good and then turn the boost up.
