Alright. Final answer on the exhaust pipe. I cant stand the bullhorns but they do work. Even if the slightest amount of help. I need all the help I can get. Plus It took two $50 wasted pieces of pipe to make up my mind.

Cant complain there one bit. Ended up picking up 100-110 pounds over last year. Waaaay more cage, more bracing, 25lb heavier turbo, heavier cooler, wider and double beadlocked wheels.
The axle loss was only around 28lbs so that basically made up for the turbo. Worked out well. Should be 3,175 race weight with my stereo and cd's even. Could rip the passenger seat and a few things out to get me 3,130/3,140.

Down to building a catch can and wiring in the new coils and egt sensors and she is ready to rock.

Nearing the end of the list. Damn this is taking a lot of hours. Adding weight non stop. Almost finished.

Built he catch can Tonight. Only took me 4 hours lol.
Its big. Has a drain to the oil pan in the old turbo drain location. Also a petcock to drain moisture.
I made it drain to the pan so when Im at the track there is no forgetting to check or empty and the oil pan never starves.
Had this K&N air filter kicking around since 2006. I had it in a 350 tpi camaro I used to have. It was used for a week and Ive tried finding a use for it since.

It was 3,030 last year with 53.4% nose weight.
3,175 with 55% right now. Im going to move my ballast forward. I have it behind the passenger seat to get the side to side better.
Ill lower or raise the front 1/2" or so. Whatever gets me a touch more on the nose.

Finally wired the coils last night. That took me way longer than it should have.

I think Im going to buy the big wig aluminum door panels. Since Id have to cut the nice black leather ones to clear the cage on the drivers side lower bar. Might as well save a few pounds.
