    sorry guys my tuner won't tune it they heard it and said they wouldn't tune it and that i should look into some stuff so yes i am tearing it down pulling it out and taking it to a shop to have the motor rechecked willse what happens I don;t mind pulling the motor out it fun. my tubalur k-member makes it easier. I think I am going to drop the k-member this time with the whole motor and trans instead of pulling it from the top! but what i have is a horable knock and the tuner nore a few shops could not identify it so I am tearing it down rechecking some things. and going to take it to a shop have them look at it and while I have the motor out I am going to go back port and polish the heads and install a windage tray.

    I love your exhaust. Did you have custom tail pipes made, or did you hack the catbacks pipes and put a new extention pipe? on?

    well know I don't but I can tell you where to cut on each side it easy. ok starting from the end of your muffler it will go up about 90 degrees then it will go 180 to go back down about 3 inches after the exhaust straitens out cut it off I hope this helped if not I can try to get close pics for you
