Went to pick up my new project this weekend from a fella in Chicago. That's Jim filling the tire in the first pic.

Getting her loaded up in the second pic.

At home in the third pic.

01-16-2008 08:32 PM Dyno Results
Dyno 1 shows the difference between the first time I went and today after installing the new headers , dual exhaust and new K&N air filter. Almost 50 HP and ft/lbs of torque.

Dyno 2 shows the pull results from today but most importantly shows the air/fuel ratio right on the dotted line at the bottom.

Dyno 3 shows the first pull I did before (green line), the second pull I did that same day with the air intake box off ( blue line) and todays pull ( red line)

01-13-2008 08:32 PM Headers- Finished
I got the headers back from the ceramic coaters and installed.
I also installed the new K&N air filter.
The truck has excellent torque and power now. It spins my 31" tires no problem.
I got approx 20 MPG on a test run. I was getting about 11.5 MPG before this.
Just got to go for a dyno pull now to see the results.

This is the material I will be using for the flanges. I've used it before and never had it blow out.

Finished the pipes all the way to the back of the truck. Just got to get the ceramic coat done on the headers and put everything back together.
