Um I think thier names are Columbia, Atlantis, Endeavor, and Discovery!

haha.. I work on the shuttles. My job is pretty cool. Just 2 weeks ago I was inside the aft (read: engine compartment) of columbia trying to figure out why a few bolts would not go through an oriface. Sheesh its tight in their!

My parts are the large valves that feel fuel from the big orange tank (ET) to the orbiter (Shuttle). One valve for LH2 and one for LO2. Each are 17" in diameter and flow upwards of 47000 gpm! That baby loves her super unleaded!! The mileage aint great, but the trip is a blast!

I am an engineer by trade, as are many other folks on this board. I would not steer you wrong here buddy. I cannot tell you that your system will hurt performance. Truth is its still better than stock. Its for you to decide what you want to do. After all, its your car buddy!
