IMO, your headers and exhaust are sized appropriately for your engine. You can also lose some performance by going to large on your headers and exhaust. It sounds like you have it dialed in rather nicely.

    IMO Lynn & Mike are on target, but I'd take it to a shop that has a lift and let them set the pinion angle. Unless you just like spending money changing things leave the exhaust alone, quit messing with things and enjoy driving it.

    JMHO, wrong pinion angle not only robs HP, it will wear things out prematurely, U joints, transmission tailshaft bushings/bearing, pinion bearings, just to name a few. If it were me, it would be the first on the list to fix...

    Good case in point on the traction issues. It has too much power now.

    Was a great honor to be included in a series of articles in StreetScene Magazine, the NSRA publication. Ehtyl got a pretty good layout on page 46 of the November 2020 issue. The article was submitted some time ago and we have since added the Louvered Hood Skirts and the 383 Stroker. Hopefully we can get them in a future publication.

    One of the truly great things about living in Plano is all the hot cars. Here are a couple of videos of a tuypical Saturday morning cruise about town.
