Hey Viral, you have probably spoken to Matt several times on this car since September when this all started. My car (Leo Santos old car that you guys built) actually has the AA Headers, Jack's Custom Performance dual cats (had) with one rasp eliminator, the X pipe or factory straight pipes that connect cats to mufflers...(can't recall) and then the AA Mufflers. So it was pretty much AA from start to finish except for the custom cats and rasp eliminator.

Like I said, I curse the thought of ever trying to be compliant with the State of TN emissions crap. It ruined my engine.

Update...Cylinders in the block bored out by .5 by VAC, with matching cylinders. We went ahead and rebuilt the vanos as well as porting the injectors. Might as well do it right. Apparently the rods and camshaft checked out okay. Everything heading back to us this week. Probably 2-4 weeks out from having a car to test drive.

Yes, I remember speaking to Matt a while ago and damn those cats . Glad to hear you got the block bored by VAC and the rods and checked out okay. Since you have engine open this is your chance to upgrade some parts I would recommend the Vanos Gear Bolts, Treated Rod Bearings, and ARP Bolts just a few ideas off the top of my head. Again, if you need any help feel free to contact me directly.
