anyone have the build sheets on any aftermarket header set made for the plymouth prowler? i would like to see if a set could fit directly to the intrepid's 3.5 without making (major) modifications to the block. thanks!
(oh yeah, and clearance within the engine compartment) :rolleyes:

problem is, there are 3 catalytic converts, and in some states it is quite illegal to remove any one of them unless it is needed to be replaced. (but im sure the car can run clean enough to pass inspection with the two header cats...they never checked under the car during both of my inspections)...plus, the diameter of the piping in the headers is smaller than the regular dia. of the pipe...so the duals would be smaller than 2.5"....NAH FORGET THAT...im gonna run duals but the diameter of the pipes is gonnna be 4"

:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: ...kill....KILLLL!!!!!! mwahahaha!

i shouldnt even have mentioned the word 4 inch pipes...i was oNLY kidding around, wasnt meaunt to be taken seriously. and about the 2.5" duals idea, read one of my other posts concerning the installation of such a modification. i most likely aint gonna run em that big, (the only reason i would is to save myself from buying another 40 series flowmaster...the one i have on it now is 2.5")
not to sound like a jerk, (i actually like these discussions) but the whole backpressure thing seems a little redundant. when i first started posting this site under my 1st name, before this site had a makeover (i fn forgot my name, but i was there...i remember talking to brun064...theres a post on his website from me about my current exhaust: crazycooter)
i mentioned what i was doing, some other people did the same mod b4 (just cutting out the resonator)...people were talking about backpressure...when i completed the job w/a flowmaster, i noticed a healthier kick throught the car's speed ability, my 1/4 mile time dropped considerably (from a best of 15.734 @ 93mph to an <extreme> best of 15.283 @ 94mph; it may have been more weather and better reaction than mechanical performance gains, thou) but the mention of the word backpressure, and the way people were talking about it made it seem like the car would be a total slug (moreso than it already is :p ) anyway, just wanted to bring that one up........(lemmie try the joke thing again) when i work on my oldsmobile, its gonna have 6" pipes that extend 10' from the rear bumper to HUGE chrome tips...hehe that was funny...(no it wasnt, dave you suck ass)

the 15.2 was a misprint, it was a 15.383.
someone before asked me this: i did some pretty crappy (temporary) modifications to the vehicle. with the thermostat i have in it now, i let the car cool down to just barely regestering on the temp gauge. opened the hood a crack, removed the passenger side turn signal, ran a hose directly through the fender from the signal port and directly onto the intake hose (minus the air filter, i dont recommend doing this...i also placed a section of thin sponge/cotton material in the hose to catch anything), had barely enough gas to make it home, took out everything (spare tire, jack, anything heavy), pumped the tires to 36 psi; car was just aligned and balanced, (crap i need to find a scanner so i can post the printout from the track, nobody believes me) hey, i think it was you who asked me a little while ago how i ran this quick.
anyway, i brake torqued it to 2000k or so, and just as the last yellow changed i planted it...used the autostick (not that it made a difference) rode 1st to just 4f redline, shifted, rode 2nd to 5500k shifted to 3rd, and waited to cross the line. car ran straight as an arrow,...
i also took out the accessory belt leading to the A/C compressor (not that it did anything, the compressor spindle was squealing something fierce)
i dont know,...ill try this again sometime, i just dont have the time right now. want to see if i do this again the same way,,,maybe itll be consistent, but i doubt it.
