Want to look into Subframe connectors. What do you guys use? looking for something that fits well.
Any local sponsors/shops sell them? would like to try to buy here instead of across the border.
Let's hear your opinions!

Just got the car out and figured when I do the intake swap, I would do a distributer upgrade. Any recomendations, what I should look for?

Looking at swapping out the stock cat for a High flow cat. Any recomendations? Figure I will need one with a air tube. Stock one is about 8 years old, I will probably keep it oncase I need it for emmisions purposes in future.
Might also swap out my flowmaster muffler, not sure if I am still in love with the sound anymore.
Let me know your thoughts!

A high flow cat should still pass emissions.

If you want a change from the flowmaster, I've got an almost brand new Hooker Aerochamber for sale in London:

I have been looking at the Magnaflow direct replacement cat.

Looks like the hooker muffler has a flange mount? I want to reuse my existing 3"' pipe

Got it all together, butt dyno not feeling much improvement :x

Need some input advise, I am trying to figure out why when I check/set timing it shows my initial timing as 21 deg ?????? If I try to bring it back to what would be closer to normal like 8 deg, it don't idle very well. Checked TDC with timing mark and itl lines up good. Just lost. Car doesn't feel strong at all, I am getting frustrated :arg:
