Probably a couple weeks IIRC. Really don't remember for sure but it did take awhile.

i just ordered all the parts except the obx. i sent obx an email asking what the differences in the 2 were, and why i can only seem to find the cheaper version(except 1 website that seems kind of shady, http://www.2kracing.com/Product/18407.html)- i figure since the thermal r&d will take a while, i can wait a few days until obx responds back. got the 15842 walker cat. was reading another thread and made me wonder, do i need a new hanger?

Loud is a function of the cams to a large extent and stock is the loudest.

took it to a shop today and had them put it on. apparently i needed another 3 bolt gasket. i had the copper one and the one that came with the obx. one of my bolts broke off so they had to get some thing to heli coil thing. also got a stud, the aformentioned gasket, and a clamp(i guess the 2 i had were not enough)

not as fartcanish as i thought it'd be thank god. not sure if i have a leak or not...sometimes when giving it a lot of gas it sounds kinda whispy but when just at a steady speed i don't hear it

i guess i will know if i throw a code or my mileage plummets!!

To find exhaust leaks I take a Q-tip and pull the cotton out a bit to make a sort of wispy cotton feather on the end. Then I run it around where I think the leak may be while the engine is running. The leak will blows the cotton wisp as you pass the Q-tip by it.

I don't know if there are better ways, but this method has worked for me. You of course need a non-windy day and it helps to have a cold engine, so the cooling fans don't kick on.

Watch those header gaskets they burn up quickly. There is a company called Remflex that makes graphite gaskets that work really well.

Cold exhaust system. Pressurize with a low pressure air source. Spray with water with a couple drops of dish soap added.
