For those interested in seeing the results from the header install on SoCal Goat's GTO at the event, here you go:




Stock Manifolds Custom Tune: 428 / 423
Kook's LT headers New Custom Tune: 454 / 454

36 Max RWHP increase
32 Max RWTQ increase

26 Peak RWHP increase
31 Peak RWTQ increase

Tuning Thread:

The installation of the headers took from 1:45pm to 3:15pm (1.5 hrs)
-No bending, heating or clearancing of the header was needed.
-No special tools were required.
-No jacking of the motor and no removing PS lines.

The catted midpipes were fabricated on the car and installed by 4:00pm (45 mins)

I hope all those watchign were taking notes .. I saw plenty asking questions.

In the picture those headers have collector flanges. Too cool.

Man, I bought the wrong brand of headers.

No problem, you will love Mike, he's a super cool guy. Let me know the results, since your an A4 the numbers may be a little low. Plus the heat up there, and altitude. That dyno isnt as forgiving as others, but its a good baseline.

Tried to get ahold of him today but he already left, but the guy said to call him at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow and he doesn't have anything going on so hopefully I can get it in there tomorrow. Yea I'm not real concerned about the numbers just nice to know where you start at. If I can get the tune by Oct. 28, the next day at fontana, those are the real numbers I want to see!!!!!!!!! Got drag bags yesterday.

Looks like your in "Mod Mode" I'm always that way LOL. Glad to see things are progressing for you. Sooner or later you guys will be beating my slow GTO down the track. :)

FYI Mike likes to leave by 3:00PM or get ready to leave.
