When I get board, it seems to get expensive. Today I swapped out my tired ATR dual exhaust for a new RJC 3in cross flow system and added a TA diff girdle. I have some fitment issues that will be addressed but overall it's a nice system, 409 stainless. Sounds similar to the ATR but with a deeper, more aggressive tone and less drone while cruising. I'll try to get a video up for you all. Also did some engine dress up a couple weeks ago. Next pile of parts I have are MT ET's for my T wheels, Alradco HID's and efans. Every time I say it's done, well........:rolleyes:

Old setup:

RJC installed:

It's a factory color, I believe GM called it dark garnett red metalic. This car was originally a white W02 car.

Thanks guys. Just talked to someone from GM High Tech performance. Sounds like my car will be in the Street Heat section of the April issue that comes out next week. They are sending a custom plaque with the article and car info. I'm stoked! :D

Yea that would be cool. F-bodies get the Camaro Performers and High Performance Pontiac. I think there would be enough content to support a Buick magazine. Correction, it's the May issue, but comes out on news stands April 9th.

Looks good, nice engine combo too. Do you have any track times?

Thanks :). No track times yet, won't run until after OC Crusin week. I've never been down a strip before but I'm hoping for mid - high 11s on a 93oct/110oct mix and 255/60 MT's.

Hot off the press :D. Such a strange feeling to see something I built in a magazine.

Today I had the 12 year old window tint removed and redone. Old was 35% sides and 5% rear, now 20% sides and 10% rear. Looks 100% better. Pics show how the RJC system isn't fitting quite right, which is annoying. Will be fixing that this week.
