I like the burble sound, but I purchased it for the quick and easy power gains from a simple flash. Buildjournel has such awesome customer service.

The stock muffler will prevent flames, but if you purchase a SS muffler or even the SG muffler you'll pop flames. You'll be running pretty dirty but I love it.

Also in no way do I have any association with the company other than being an extremely happy customer

RK Tunes "Burble and Pop" looks pretty insane! Are they all like this, or is the 'Filthy Habits' muffler with the valve-open the big reason why this 'over-run' tune is so aggressive?

Installed my AS 30% over the weekend, i was sure i was going to regret going for the 30% over the 20 or 0%, but honestly i love it as is, the effort is minimal and the throw distance is great. That DIY is as bad as they say it is though. As others have experienced, my shifter has migrated over the right compared to stock, but this actually works well for a RHD car... kinda like it to be honest.

Wait so it's common for the shifter to migrate over to the right? When I did my akg shifter install, I had the same thing happen. It's still like that but I've gotten used to it. I didn't realize other people have had the same issue? Any idea if there is a solution?

Thanks!

I know they recommend a cat-less setup
If not the flames and popping will destroy it.

The popping and flames also come from when you have your foot on the throttle lightly just enough to dump some fuel.

Spent about 3 hours yesterday trying to get the top-most passenger side bellhousing bolt out. That ****er is on there and of course right up against the firewall so can't anything on it.... Dropped the tranny as much as I could and still won't come off. Impact wrench with about 2 feet of extensions ain't working either.
PB blaster no help. Cussing and throwing tools didn't help, either.
Trying to fix a rear main seal leak. It's not the oil pan, oil pan gasket or CPV o-ring; tried all of those.
Currently researching how hard it is to drop the engine and tranny out the bottom of the car. I have a 4 post lift so doesn't look too bad.

Sometimes this car almost isn't worth it.

Edit: and of course its about a billion degrees outside with 100% humidity.

Mike

Currently redoing my interior. Waiting on alcantara for headliner and CF sunroof delete panel in the mail.
Seats are out getting repaired and restored while I am brainstorming a good 100 mpg proof rear seat delete— probably just a bulkhead with some foam moulding done up with any leftover alcantara.
I have a honey-do list about 25 items long at the moment, and that's not including detailing work.
