Hey guys,

I'm looking to get a magnaflow for my ZHP and was wondering if anyone in the triangle area had a magnaflow on their 330 that I could hear in person. If you do and are willing to let me hear it and enjoy some car talk, PM me.

Thanks

I'm like 10 minutes in the opposite direction of you then right off 98 towards Bunn/401. Pm me with the diagnosis and I bet I can do the job much cheaper with better parts or I can meet you with my Peake Tool once the renter mails it back around next weekend.

Do you have a smoke blower (not sure the actual name). I believe I have a vacuum leak and was going to go about it be spray and search way, though of a better way is available I'd really rather use that.

No, never needed one. My Peake tool does a really good job of narrowing things down.

I've got a vacuum leak I think. Codes are 171, 174, 1083, 1085. Just ordered parts to change the oil seperator, all the connecting hoses and gaskets. $130 from pelican parts.

If its not included in the kit, to get an intake mani gasket and go ahead and replace the injector o-rings, top and bottom, while its out. The CCV is so much easier to do with the intake mani off anyway and you've already got the fuel rail off so the o-rings are a breeze. That way when your next lean code pops up (it will) that's 2 more things you can rule out!

Would anyone be interested in buying stock m3 suspension and muffler. Nothing wrong with either of them and I will sell pretty cheap.

Also curious if anyone is interested in catless headers for m3 perfect figment. I ran them on my m3 for about three months. I also have an innovate lc-1 I will sell with the headers that includes everything. Will sell both for 200$.

He doesn't get on much so I'll answer No, they are OEM headers with the cats cut out and pipes welded in. The fitment is 100% OEM (I installed them). We picked them up from a local Indy shops garage sell. The welds are nice and sealed and look good. The rest is all OEM, placement of EGT sensor and that bung, etc. Most headers have that bung either deleted or relocated and you usually have to worry about that code popping up as well. They produced a very nice gain in power. $200 WITH an Innovate LC-1, wire, hear sink resistors and all that's needed except gaskets is a GREAT deal. Jump on this deal! You won't be disappointed.
