Slick.  Remember, it may take a few days for the car to fully adapt to the new flow potential, so give it a while before you judge the performance.  Can't wait to feel it now!

Hey what do you guys think about re-setting the ecu? Should I do that so the car learns quicker- I have been wanting to do it sense I fixed the boost leaks. Let me know.
The pics are put on hold because I am  waiting to get new batteries and charger for the camera (picking up today).

I forgot to mention that Champagne did an amazing job! Those guys are good!! I highly recomend them! :D

Champagne put on the exhaust?  Was it a bolt-on?

Yes it is a bolt on (3 parts)but they asked me if I wanted it welded and I passed on that for now. If i have problems I will have them weld it.
So I went ahead and reset the ECU and I can already feel the difference, if it improves more over time..... then WOW!!! :D  :D

That's awesome, Hawk!  I'd love to get some good exhaust, so I want to see what yours sounds like.
