    Nice progress Sparro! You have got guts and skills. Best of luck as your major surgery continues — all the way to its end of hospitalization, with the patient leaving in better shape before its initial admittance.

      You should be a youtuber. It'd pay for all your effort! Great photos.

        Well I hope I didn't bite off more than I can chew, I probably should have brought it to a shop. I haven't gone this far into anything like this since grade 9 auto shop... lol. I have lots of tools and a pretty good working knowledge of how to do it, but I am also hoping another fellow C8 friend comes over to help out with the rest. I've got time, car is stored for the winter plus my business is seasonal and we're closed right now until March!

            Whose headers and cats are going in? Would love to know if ARH headers will fit a vert. Good luck with the rest of the work.

                I went with 2M Fabrication. Best deal in town. A bunch of guys in some of the various facebook C8 groups got them and quality is top notch. They are basically identical to LTH. I got the combo headers and sport cats for $949.99. 1-7/8" headers with 200 CEL sport cats... she will scream like a GTLM car... lol

                  Does 2M Fabrication guarantee no CEL when the 200 cell cats are installed?

                      Fabspeed, Soul, LTH all use 200 CEL, Kooks is 300 CEL.

                        It would have been interesting to dyno before and after header/cat installation as well as sound test to measure the real changes.

                        Loud pipes saves lives!

                          This car has enough power for me, so I don't really care about dyno numbers, they are not really a good "real world" representation of power. Other manufactures are claiming up to 20 HP gains. I don't know if you can even feel that difference... I dunno. But what I'm after is sound, I want it louder. The NPP exhaust doesn't do enough for me. My ears will be able to tell the difference. Plus my friend has a stock C8 exhaust that I can compare to. My brother has a 2021 coming too. I've heard sport cats only in real life and it was a huge difference.

                            I agree with you on the HP. Always good to get some real numbers.

                            I am anxious to hear the beast! Louder exhaust makes it feel faster anyway,

                                Thanks bro. I just called my local chevy dealer. They had 50 jugs in stock. It was a ripoff at $49 per bottle.
