Are you saying I should put the stock header and sect 1 (without cats) back in? That would suck, it was a lot of work to replace those and also welding cats into my sect 1.

Bump

This is a great price! Especially if you do the install, I'm in the process of installing some now and it's a lot of work. Your labor charges low.

The main difference is the FMIC, piping, smaller SC pulley (7psi vs 5psi), a new crank pulley, and tuning. I think it's approx. 45 hp more than the vt-445. I believe the vt-445 is 32% HP increase...
