I got to work this morning and the email I sent you bounced back. I think the exchange servers there are screwed up, or the nazis who admin them have entire domains blocked.
Anyway, I'm glad you got the info you needed

Good luck with the coil overs. I am going to changing my struts within the next few weeks. It's nothing that I look forward to either.

How do you feel about the quality of the headers? I have read mixed reviews. Some say that they are thin and easy to bend, but they are a good looking stainless steel. Let us know.

That sucks about the egr. Let me guess, you have a CEL and it sounds like a slight exhaust leak?

Fastcat2002-- I am liking that pic in your sig. Is that your plan for the car? Looks good.

got it fixed. cut the pipe and used exhaust rubber hose and 2 clamps to extend the egr tube and fixed the problem. if anyone in the area needs headers installed i got mine in in 6 hrs.

Glad to hear that you finally got them in. I have been thinking of getting headers in the past couple of weeks. What are your thoughts on the performance and quality of the CC headers? I haven't heard anything about performance, except that one guy had flunctuating rpm's. Does it sound meaner? Give us your thoughts.

alright, been asked if is it a v8 or had a cam. sounds a lot louder and meaner. downshifts are loud. the hp is good but it is more in the tq gains. pulls a lot more on the low-mid range powerband. quality is very good, 99-00 have to mod the egr tube to get the proper fit. or just buy a screw on-cap for the header(no exhaust leak).
