My baby had the operation Kleemann ECU Tune & Headers, Downpipes - vids

pics start post 32 and 35 and 39.

Yes, it was time. Must go faster. Stinger almost had as much horsepower as me (NOT).

So ecu being overnighted to Kleemann today. An optimized ECU software upgrade tune + a set of stainless steel tubular exhaust headers, downpipes and straight pipe being installed. Governor limits removed. Ecu back Wednesday morning. Tentative pickup Wednesday night


Having separation anxiety now.

These vids are before Supercharger. Sounds better now!

Well done Jeff, those headers look 'the nuts' cruising with the hood down, and giving your baby some 'pedal to the metal' when it's all hooked up, will have you smiling like a "Cheshire cat" (Cheshire Cat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) Old British saying, ...
PS: Love to see/hear a video when it's done, just to hear what it sounds/looks like?

I'm interested on what kind of cost this involves! Because eventually there will be performance mods down the road, maybe.

Hang in there Jeff....we're all with you, at least in sprit. I'm sure she's in good hands and will pull through just fine. Just take it easy with her after she's ahem, 'discharged' until she's ready to go full throttle again

Oh, she's definitely in good hands...the 'specialists' are #1 in Tampa, maybe even the south....and the 'hospital' is spotless, what would one expect with Jeff's OCD issues!
