Think the smell was bad for you? Talk to anyone that rides behind a car with hacked off cats. I pissed off a lot of people with my catless 94, lol. Friends would hang back about a half mile. You made a good decision for power tour.

Way to go! Literally 38 years ago, catalytic converters were restrictive. Nowadays... Z06s and ZR1s run ridiculous power through catalytic converters.  

I wish I could find the test I read where they took cats off a C6 Z06 and made... ONE more horsepower.

So yes, do yourself, your friends and the planet a favor, and keep your cats in good working order. My next muscle build will have cats. And it will make ridiculous horsepower.

Well....new tips are not really a win in my book. What I wanted in my head did not translate quite right. LOL! I need to do some thinking and find something that will tuck up more and look less like a horse wang. I wanted to do the TransAm style tips...but there was not a good way to make that happen with the room given by the spare tire hump. These are the tips the shop had on hand.

Nice to see better looking tips on that exhaust. Also nice to see that you stuck them out the corners. Thats how i did my old 93 wagon.

Well, the sound and exhaust smell is a lot better this way too. I just wish the tips tucked in more...but I’ll leave em as is for a bit to
see if it grows on me!

I would like to run flat ovals that go straight out the back, or out of the side in back of the wheel opening. My opinion on turn downs is that they blow up a lot of dust on gravel or dirt surfaces. These are a lot of car to keep clean as it is.

Thanks everyone!!

Lol, dmg4 - The tips that were on there had plenty of scrape marks. LOL! They hung a lot lower and were at the very rear. Although they did help save my rollpan a couple of times when backing up and missing something.

Wagons generally get dirty on the rear anyhow...and the rollpan seems to really amplify that. A quick swipe of the California Scraper/Duster solves it. Lol

Final Dyno testing happened over the weekend. I say final, but I'm prob going back again after some more changes. I can see why this can become addicting...when you have numbers and get advice on how to improve...you want to go back and see the improvement.

Anyhow, drives great and sounds great. Went to and from ATL with no issues and the smell is totally gone between the cats and moving the tips. Exhaust actually sounds better with the turndowns. I'm guessing it's the waves hitting the ground resonating.

Alex (tuner) was great to work with and has grown fond of the wagon now and wants one for himself! Lol. Evolved Tuning is where the Dyno was. They were a pretty cool shop and the owner had some great info and past data from other LT1s to share.

Taking this thread off "666" posts...lol. Also, changed heads over the weekend to the Lloyd Elliot LE2 heads. LOVE IT! Wagon feels way better. Jay and Heath came over to help and we all had a jolly good time! Ha!

I promise to leave things alone for now Smile

Drivetrain is nice and quiet (Jay really took time to adjust the rockers and I learned a ton from him on this) and idle is smooth.

PRE TEST DRIVE

First test drive scared me a little...I was not expecting the rear to break loose at part throttle! The power is definitely way up from before. Eager to get it measured again to compare.

FIRST TEST DRIVE VID

Finally feel like I can really button up the engine bay. Takes some time to put all the top bits of the Torqhead fuel rail covers on - but it does dress things up. Just a PITA to remove.

SO....I put the new wheels on thinking I was "done".  It was at this moment that I really knew I had a problem.  

So I put the old wheels back on, grabbed a drink...and started peeling the sticker off.  LOL!  

Re-Wrap #4 in progress BAHAHAA

I actually have 2 full backup sets of clips top and bottom!  BUT...I only broke 2 in the past 2 re-woods.  Lol. The bugger is my front pass spear since the main clip is hard to find.  So I have a makeshift clip and back it up with a dab of silicone.  Will be dry tonight and I'll get some more pics with the new wheels on.  

Then the tailgate comes Wed and BOOM!  Back to stealth mode.

I was kinda over the psychedelic mode before I really started, but the wrap material and trimming was really nice. I will say this, the shop that did it really knows how to lay it down and trim it out. It was just not my style and didn't do the wagon justice.  

Looks like I'm almost ready to drive to church in this thing. Lol

Thanks Mike! And thanks for the Roadmaster emblem measurements. I only found one of my NOS emblems...I need to find the other. I hope I didn't give it away (I might have).

Tailgate will be finished up today...so that will be good. Was too excited to wait for a couple of pics and I needed to pull the wagon out to turn it around in the garage.

Still on the fence about the other wheels. I really like my current ones honestly, seems to "fit". I need to see it outside. Goal is to have the bling wheels for special times and run the DGGM wheels for daily/fun times.

Tailgate finished - had to do it in 2 pieces like the factory.  Material was limited, so we decided to play it safe and not risk doing the one piece and botching the plate area up.  

Overall, I am very happy and feel like I've settled on a look I can keep for a bit.  I've decided this IS the last re-wood...and the next step will be painting it all smooth.  

But you know me, I change my mind easily.  LOL!

lol...I'm definitely not getting rid of the ones Jarrod painted. Those will be on there most of the time, but I do like the bling and redlines for special occasions.

I love the redlines. They tie in with the interior. Definitely support those. Where'd you get them anyway?

Are the new wheels larger, or is it just the redline tires look smaller because of the stripe?

The new wheels are indeed larger...I swore I would never go above 18in (which is what the DGGM ones are) but I liked and these are 20in wheels with 255/35 20 tires. Same diameter as my 18in set (so I can go back and forth without worrying about tuning issues)

 I expected a harsher ride, but it literally rides exactly the same. lol

I have 20in Scat Pack wheels on my Magnum R/T so it seems like a normal-ish size now.  

Took the wagon out for a long drive last night and am pretty excited about taking it to Daytona next week!

Drove the wagon to Asheville (South) Cars and Coffee Sat morning, then went from there to Duluth, GA Right outside ATL) for an INC meet.  Goal was to put as many miles as I could to really test everything before Daytona this weekend.  Ended up being 426miles total Sat.  

Seems I am in good shape - nothing fell off or blew up.  I'm also getting with my wrapping friend Robert Thurs night to do the tailgate again as I do believe we can do it all in one piece.

It was pretty cool to park next to a stock version of myself at CaCoffee!

Tailgate was updated the night before I left for Daytona.  The one piece is much better and can be done with this material Wink

I also added one of the shallow body alternators from Torqhead.

Then the trip to Daytona and back went great!  Nice to know that after this thing has been in pieces a couple of times...I can still just hop in and roadtrip without issue.
