Default Pacesetter LTs

Hey everybody. Thought I would share a few pictures and quick review of my recent addition to the truck. I picked up some pacesetter LTHs with matching y-pipe and had them coated with a 2000* heat coating here at a local shop. My cats were deleted in the process of installing the headers and y-pipe. I accounted for the codes caused by the rear O2 sensors with a custom tune from hemifevertuning.com. I must say, the truck is just straight up mean now. Especially with the custom tune; the thing just pushes ya back in the seat and doesn't seem to want to let up. I'm very pleased with how everything turned out. Next oil change I'll get some pics of the undercarriage with the truck on the stands.

Looks good. The pacesetter LT's are a huge improvement over stock manifolds.

Huge difference in sound. I think especially because the cats were deleted in the process. My buddy who installed the headers described it best. "It's like nascar when you stomp on it."

Just the other day I did a lil run with my buddy and his Rx7. From about 55-95 I slowly walked away from him. In his fairness he has some tuning issues to take care of and is only pushing about 6 or 7psi compared to his normal 10. At any rate, we had our windows down and he said the thing was just ridiculously loud.

it dyno'd 339rwhp.
a couple of cautions about dynos: you can see differences on the same vehicle on the same dyno on different days. these transmissions are hard to dyno b/c you can't lock it in gear...when you go WOT it wants to downshift.
I think of the dyno as a means to get your tune correct and get the most hp out of your mods. it is fun to go and see what hp number pops up but it doesn't always correlate. I saw a mustang with a powerglide run 9s but he only dyno'd 580rwhp.

I need to make it to a track just to see what times she'll do. maybe next year after deployment.
