Sounds like it’s ready to go. Russ does good work and Grahmn does great work. I’ve had Russ do work for me and I have a boosted performance tuning protune. Let’s see some pics of this thing.

I don't have any as it all sits right now, but these are afew. Any issues I should be aware of or things I should consider upgrading next for handling/strength? The Clutch cylinder brace is on the the top of my list already to be purchased

BTW photo bucket sucks these days.
