Very nice. I'm thinking a ramhorn is going to be my next setup.

I take it you have a bandsaw? That collector is minty perfect.

underinflated and cold, so you have less traction in this sceanrio. I can drive my car to the track on the nt-01s and its significanly slicker on teh street than with my 360-treadwear nittos.

Hopefully the ceramic coating on the inside does not chip off because that's know to kill turbines.

TCC (People who coated my manifold) has had people bring that issue up as far as worrying the coating will break off, but he has done a lot of manifolds with no problems. All his stuff is warranted also not to chip/flake off, so I trust it, I forgot the thickness he does his coatings too.

And, as far as the tires...that's fully warm I do run 25psi and never have issues with traction even when cold. Like I said, all my power is over 4,000 RPM which helps a lot w/traction and I have some lag b.w gears so I don't spin all over the place. But, with 380 whp I couldn't go WOT until 4th even then I was sideways. So, I will need to adjust accordingly with the power increase with suspension adjusting and tires.
