    use www.dogpile.com and do a search on the net. You'll find a lot of places to do it. You're gonna have to send them out. I like that "Jet Hot" place the best. I'd call them if I were you. i think the turn around time is 7-10 days. But don't quote me on that. I hope this helps you.

    hey, can you verify the muffler that came with the kit?

    i believe it to be a Magnaflow XL open flow part number 14355 does it say on the box the part number??

    This place did my headers: http://www.performancecoating.com/

    Ask for Gerry, he owns the place and is a great guy. Tell him Marty and Todd sent ya!!

    There work simply can not be beat. I would post pics of my headers here but sonce this is a "Kooks" thread I can't. Nonetheless ask the boys and girls in the ATL about the coating on my headers. They look like jewelry!

    Hey Big Joe,

    I suspect it is just a location thing. I live within 60 mils of kooks as the crow flies. I imagine the farther west you are the longer it will take to get them.

    Nick at Kooks is quite responsive. Give him a ring and ask him if they went out.

    Best,

    Dan

    Hey Gavin...

    So much for being the fastest (or was it 2nd fastest) stock MM out there.

    Congrats dude! I hope I win them from the raffle!

    2nd fastest in the world, 1st in america

    i've gone as about as fast i can. she will pull a 14.8 all day long now but i've never gotten
    another 14.7. trying to get tta's 14.5 is something i'd have to wait for the planets to align for me to top it.

    i plan on taking a pre and post dyno run with the kooks. it should be interesting to see the difference between the kooks as well as the difference between my earlier dyno and the pre-kooks dyno. i got a feeling that more ponies where freed up once all those miles settled in. my first dyno was at about ~1000 miles. now it will be ~13000

    Gavin,

    What time of year did you hit those numbers? I've got about 35 passes on my car, maybe more, never anything better than 15.1. However, each run was at least 75 degrees or hotter. I cant wait for octobers cool dry air to see what kind of improvements can be made based on temp, and humidity. See you in Indy!
