CEL came on because I was going around a long bend and my washer fluid is on the low side. P-brake light flickers because I currently have no p-brake hardware installed so there's no weight on the handle and the switch on the handle is pretty sensitive.

That vid was with straight pipes in the mid-section and a stock cat back exhaust.

I'm definitely going to be at DDT on Sunday

Wicked job on getting it going man-- can't wait to check it out on Sunday

Just curious -- you did a 50k hard break in -- you felt it went well? What oils did you use during /after break-in? Regular Dino oil or any additives or anything?

Great sound btw, will be awesome with a good exhaust

I'm using 10w40 dino oil with a brake in additive. I did 50km hard then changed oil. Still put dino oil in and the brake in additive. I've got about 2000km on the motor now. I might change over to synthetic before DDT this weekend because the motor has got to be broken in by now the way I've been driving it and I'd prefer not to stir up whatever is in the bottom of the pan while lapping.

I couldn't get that stuff locally. I used a product called AC Delco Engine Oil Supplement that a local car parts shop had. It says right on the bottle:

Quote:
ACDelco Engine Oil Supplement is a multi-purpose additive concentrate designed to help eliminate lifter sticking, reduce valve train noise, reduce camshaft lobe scuffing, and reduce break-in wear.
And based on the research I did it has high enough levels of zinc phosphates.

But the redline or comp cams additive will work too. Royal purple, amsoil, and joe gibbs also sell a specially formulated brake in oils.

Picked up my car this evening. I'm definitely happy with how the exhaust turned out. The shop I took it to did a really nice job fitting everything together. It's definitely louder now but not too loud when cruising, however if I open it up you can hear me from a mile away lol...

Thanks guys, I appreciate it. It's been 9 months in the making and now it's time to enjoy it while I can before winter rolls in, then I'll start collecting parts for the ITB project.

See you guys on Sunday!
