I am very happy to say I own one of these finally! I have been looking for about 5 years on and off. I found this one craigslist, joined up here, and was provided some very good info before buying :D And thanks again to all the members that helped out in my other thread!

Specs:
-2002 Firehawk #1035
-38,xxx miles
-6spd
-MS4 cam and supporting mods, Tune of course
-Longtube headers and Magnaflow exhaust with H-pipe
-AR Torq Thrust II wheels
-Brand new drilled & slotted rotors
-160 degree thermostat
-20% tint

Here it is arrived the moment it arrived at home. Towed by my buddies D-max

Then took it off the trailer, and put right in the garage. Pics are not the greatest.

Yes I will be very careful with it i can promise that. Its really clean, but has some rock chips up front on the hood, bumper and headlights I would like to get re-painted someday. The interior is like new!!


Anybody know where I can get some Firehawk floor mats, a comemorative manual and any other original documentation re-print that would have came with the car? Would SLP have any documentation re-prints they could send me?

Congrats! Looks very, very clean :)

You're best bet on the OE firehawk floor mats is to try to snag them on eBay or here in the classifieds.

No I did not :( I will find and buy some factory wheels some day. But I like the stance with the AR's on though.

I also need to get the SLP birth certificate and window sticker, because no documentation came with it.

And I just registered the car at firehawk.org

Oh nice! :nod:


So the guy before me cut the magnaflow exhaust off because he wanted it louder. So now it just has LT headers, true duals, h-pipe and dumped bullets.

Well thats a little too loud for my taste, so i am going to put the rest of the magnaflow exhaust back on with nice dual rolled edged tips out back.

Here is the magnaflows, what are your guys' opinions? How is it going to sound?

Aside from the factory Hawk rims I always love the Firehawks looks vs a WS6.
If I were you I'd cut off and keep the Magnaflow mufflers and shit can whats left of that exhaust and start over.

As in springs you mean lower it? Yes, it will be lowered someday. I am thinking of going down 1" or so. True duals might get in the way, I dunno.



I hope you guys can supply answers to this. The car is missing alot of Firehawk things such as:

-Firehawk Floormats
-Deckmat
-Firehawk Manual and owners manual
-SLP window sticker & Birth Certificate (I know I can buy them from SLP)
-Firehawk wheels

Anyone know where I can buy these? I really want to return it back to how it should be. Guy I bough it from has none of these, unless he's lying. Bottom line though, I didn't get any of that with the car.

Thanks. I am happy to finally own one :D

The first vid is a very cold start, after about a month of sitting, and you can see to the left of the car is the rest of the magnaflow exhaust to be put on some day. The second vid my battery died :bang: Fail.

I know my camera is not the best for vids lol.

that magnaflow system that was cut off looks like shit. looks like someone cobbled it together. if thats any indication of how the rest of the system looks, i would shit can everything south of the headers and start over. such a nice car deserves an equally nice exhaust.

Yeah I know, thats why I don't like these wheels. I would rather have the stocks on. Yes if I am ever in the area i will sure let you know. There are not many firehawks around here, and it would be cool to take pics with an identical one imo.

Exhaust that is on now looks perfectly fine. Its the rest of it thats not on that looks like shit, like you said and i agree. But, thats what i get for buying a used car. Now I have to correct it.

haha thats great, and im happy to be a part of the club! Yeah its got stock heads and gears, its how i bought it. I WILL be getting new heads and gears someday, Im not in a hurry. I also may want a different cam, I wouldn't have chosen this particular one, but since its in there its staying for a while.

I also do want some factory wheels or C6 wheels for it, just to change it up from what the last owner did to it. I have a long list like many others :nod:
