You're right, I have race header* haha, and I read on DEI's website that since I'm using titanium wrap instead of fiberglass, and since my header is stainless instead of mild steel, I don't need the spray.
Ah. Even better...less work.

Is the header a 4 to 1 or a 4 to 2 to 1? I'm guessing it is meant to add high end power?

They're 4-2-1, I didn't take a before picture but you can see in the first picture right after I wrapped all four pipes together as one is when they converge to 2, and they stay as 2 until just before the first O2 sensor. Besides power gains, these headers completely change the sound of the K20 engine, giving it an angry tone rather than just a loud one!

Phew...look at that truck!




Thanks Andrew.  Wait until the turbo on the Regal is done.  Should be good for 500+hp.  Not that I will push it that hard.  The turbo is about the size of a basketball. lol  



These will be the summer wheels on the truck.  Figure 305/50/20 tires on them.  The truck is making me want a lighter car with RWD V8 tho... Turbo Regal will have to be good enough for now.

My brother decided to sell his 2006 F-350 Super Duty earlier this year.  I "need" a one-ton diesel 4x4 about as much as I need a hole in my head, but I couldn't resist.



85k miles, 6.0L Power Stroke with ARP head studs, EGR cooler, Edge programmer, prototype 4" KORE Performance lift (mfg of the Dodge RamRunner option) with Fox 2.0 shocks, 3 Baja Designs HID racing lights... many more extras.

The biggest selling point was the fact that this was a one owner truck, and my brother is waaaay more anal about his vehicles (and records) than I am, plus I have a truck that I know the absolute complete history on.  

Way too much fun to drive too!

Nice truck! My neighbor and his buddies all have newer 3/4 ton Diesels. One Powerstroke and 3 Duramax's. One of the is a 2012 Duramax with the LML engine and make something like 550whp and almost 1000 lb*ft with just an exhaust and tune. Runs 8.2s-8.4s consistently in the 1/8th mile in 4 wheel drive! Some incredible sleepers those new diesel trucks are and looks like a nice one you've got!

That was the single biggest weakness of the 6.0.  I would have been squeamish buying this truck from a random craigslist ad just for that reason.  My dad has an F-250 from the same year, and his had to be done twice under warranty before it was repaired correctly.  The fact that they had been done before there was a problem, and the fact that I *know* how this truck was treated it's whole life were major selling points.

Thanks!  I don't know how much this tune makes, but I know on the "5" setting it'll roll some coal and put your butt in the seat.  The only drawback was driving it from San Diego to Charlotte getting 13.1 mpg! shocked

Got it all mounted up!  The bolts on the flanges of the header and Megan midpipe didn't match up somehow, so I put the twin-loop on and I'm glad I did.  At idle and constant speed, it's much quieter on the roads, but once I dip into the throttle it lights up with the exact kind of sound I was describing earlier; angry.  Not a single OEM bolt was rusted on the threads today, so I only had to use PB blaster to get the other catback off!

Updated pictures of the bike.  Exhaust is now bent and on the bike.  Just need to paint it and wrap it and the bike should be done.

so bad things happened : The astra blew the trans up via the trans cooler-was covered by warranty, however the radiator was also ruined-$742 bucks down the drain.

Anyway aside from other life changing incidents I felt it was time for a change " />
