Here everyone, I took many pictures today of my old headers. (45k on em) These aren't 330 headers, I received the wrong set. I had my exhaust modified to fit these. Nothing to dispute anymore. We are done talking about headers. I apologize for not having more updates. I recently sold my entire nitrous kit and bought a new one. I'm back to waiting on parts. The car was nearly finished. It sits now on jack stands, no intake, no fuel system, no exhaust. Tranny will be dropped when the mounts come in.

I'm just having fun, this car will be done by April. I have meets to go to, races to race, ego's to kill, and videos to make. I want to share everything I can, before I move on. Nothing more, nothing less. You can build your own monster and dyno it with everything you see fit. Then compare your numbers to mine.

These headers were very difficult to wrap. Here is the other one semi wrapped. Don't mind the blood!

Not many pictures to add. Finished up the wiring, tested everything last night. No issues, with the nitrous system. After wrapping the headers, I go to put them in. Surprise!! They don't fit!! So after brain storming a few minutes. I start to realize, these headers are so god damn big! The little bit of wrap is making them not fit! So I strip one header of the wrap. Still doesn't fit! Getting worried, unwrap the other header. Goes in like butter, I couldn't believe how tight the tolerances were on these headers. Lesson learned, save yourself some money and don't wrap Schmiedmann headers! If anyone feels, I have left out anything. Or would like pictures of anything I didn't picture. Speak up!

I've had a few issues with my drive train as of late. Everything has been worked out. I'm again waiting for parts. I plan to dyno once the clutch is broke in. I will only be posting a dyno of a 55 shot. Expect numbers within 2 weeks. I'd be willing to gift 20 bucks to the person that comes closest to my HP! 10lb AL JB Flywheel otw, my old flywheel wasn't compatible with my new pressure plate/clutch setup.
