Ok now...

I just got my coolant problem fixed, it happened to be a $3 part, the thermostat housing gasket, and $30 to have it fixed (at mates rates ), also had the car put up and the suspension checked out, the SLS has been removed and the shockers are monroe, so now i gotta remove the bypass switches wired up next to the steering wheel, fuse has now been removed to the suspension.
Also noticed there is a hole in the muffler, onyl about 2cm worth right now possibly from a stone or something, anyway its going to stay there and get worse until i get the entire exhaust done. What i want to know is which brand is the best in your opinions and which set-up, 4-1, or tri-y, what im after is good torque/horsepower increase thru the low-mid rev ranges as im not interested in revving the hell outa the engine just to get some power. then into some cats of some description and a muffler, is there anyone out there that does the entire thing all in one and does this save you any money as opposed to doing cat-back and then extractors/headers

Re: Ok now...

thanks, also when i took car down to be fixed the guy said it was probably better to remove all the plastic shit around the battery and remove the snorkel which gets air inside the plastic, anyone else removed the snorkel and plastic around the battery? just think of the 1/100000th of a second that your 1/4 will be improved by

Re: Ok now...

Its there to cool the battery..Efi / unleaded engines get very hot.Plus they have sound insulation that holds heat in...More confined space also...

Re: Ok now...

what am i looking at for some tri-y extractors with decent cats and muffler all through 2.5 or 2.75"? system in mild steel cermaic coated and stainless steel... up around 1500-2000 i'd imagine? what sort of power gains are to be had on a stock engine doing this?
