damn you are good at finding used part for cheap then.
i've been watching the classified field for quite a long time and the cheapest i've ever seen is 140 shipped and they sell pretty fast.
I have brullen headerback right now that I'm having a bit of mixed feeling to.
it surely sounds great but the power increase of header back vs. catback is really not much. I'm gonna do emission and change my exhaust back to stock on monday, maybe i'll have more insight after i review the feeling of stock exhaust
I too is very interested in how e-manage work and how effective it is.
IMHO both spark plug wire and the grouding mod are those things with too small of an effect to have any empirical data. some might feel a difference in throttle response and smoother acceleration, but some say it's just placebo effect~
btw, just noticed we both lived in Richmond, just different country and state...haha
anyways, very very nice write up, this should be sticky man!
