I noticed that 1/2 the people who rock Hiero gear in No.Cal didn't even listen or know anything about them.

Not saying that's you, but just my observation and pet peeve.

Urbansoot

I wish you all the luck with that build.

I have an N/A. It is a different kind driving experience for sure. Maybe I can help you with set up, and I hope to learn from your experience. It looks like your build is a lot more serious than mine.

I can not say I appreciate the but did you get exhaust as well? Was there any? I have been searching for a 4 into 1 header with 3" collector. I was hoping that someone has done one before, so I do not have to go through the hassle of a custom job.

No worries. I was not pissed. I was being sarcastic.

Pics would be cool. I would like to know who built them if you have that info.
