has she used the sawzall before? Sometimes they can bite back lol, gloves and goggles, have fun!


and for everyone else doing work under their car, check you jack stands if you are using Harbor Freight ones:
I'll be supervisor, everyone needs to learn sometime. I've got extra blades
I use a quick jack now so my jackstands just collect dust

I have three of their jacks and nothing wrong with them. Never lift a cat and just leave it on the jack. Always use good quality jack stands.

I am weary of lifting cats.

Got the magnaflow cat back installed. Took about 2 hrs. Fought more with the hangars than anything. Definitely picked up the Cobb hangars. Factories are way to soft IMO. Can't get the video to load, but anyway zero drone and sounds beautiful rowing through the gears. My wife did the cutting and was underneath helping the whole time. It's her her first mod so she was super excited. I've been teaching her to wrench in her own stuff.

Had to pull the intake manifold off to see if the hose came off the PCV or O-ring was damaged. Been getting the PCV code. It’s the last thing I had off or changed. Never had a issue with the Injen CAI. While I was there I put a throttle body spacer on. A fellow member gave it to me. I machined his spacer for a Big TB and he offered the extra.

First mod besides the pedal spacer, so no tune.
Driven on it a few times now...it's pretty good. Boost still kicks in around 2.5 - 3k, however not as quick or punchy as stock. It does taper on smooth and strong and pulls hard throughout.
Also, consistent power every time and any time I hit the gas, so in that way it is much more responsive than stock.

I didn't notice any difference going to an aftermarket intercooler. Interesting.

Is that a old Honda or Kawasaki off to the side?

Hmm... the 6000' elevation may be playing a factor here then. More air to compress? Don't think i'm leaking, still plenty of boost...

The bike is a '12 Bonneville T100, and its extremely jealous of the ST.
