    Not a problem; I installed most on an aluminum panel that can be easily slipped in/out when being used. Any questions do not hesitate to ask me. Takes care Shadowman

    Code P0171; P0174; and P1000

    Did you get the situation resolved? The P1000 code will remain as long as the others are in place as the OBDII system cannot not successfully complete the component testing processes with no issues. Takes care Shadowman

    Cam Chain Tensioner

    Yes; I encourage a chat with John and consider upgrade cam chains and tensioners. As I recall, the primary chain would remain OEM however the 2 cam to cam chains and tensioners would be different. All the best Shadowman

    Rear exit headers thermal expansion

    You can do it; just leave the exhaust installed cutting the elbow off at the weld and then a little grinding and a slight angle change will increase the clearance. If approached as a cool project rather than a must do task the process will go IMO smoothly and the results will make you smile. I...

    Rear exit headers thermal expansion

    Rear exit headers thermal expansion

    All exhaust grow in length when hot however the long tube header design that goes straight back on both sides makes it more pronounced. For example, I did thermal expansion measurements on the Stainless Works system and when extremely hot they grow in length nearly 3/4". Having shared this...
