    What's up everyone? I was on here a few weeks ago before the motor swap went in, haven't been on the forum since, just been racking miles and calculating mpg. Its throwing a CEL for like 6 different reasons, but I wanted to give everyone an update on it at the moment. It was all stock, and a little boring. I've done some things to it since getting it running. I was shopping for wheels and tires, and found some from a Silverado. 18x8.5 wrapped in 33x12.5 tires, aaand I got an exhaust on it. I'm going to try to post some pics and a video. The exhaust is a Wickedflow Kamikaze with 3" piping. The wheels are nice and all, I feel its noticeably slower with them but that's expected when you add unsprung weight and rotational mass. I think I need to crank the torision bars up a little, I've gotten rub only like 3 times so far all week, and I've put almost 1,000 miles. Gas mileage went down a little too. Stock I was getting 10.5 mpg at best, now I'm hitting less than 9. But to be fair I drive WOT a lot.
    Well, what do you guys think?

    Also I'm gonna have to add the video of the exhaust later so you guys can hear it, for some reason it's not letting me add the current file.

    upload to youtube and then link it here, I don't think video is supported directly from this website, just photos or smaller gif's, larger gifs can be uploaded to media

    Looks good. I'm surprised you're only getting a little rub here and there. Looks like it's rubbing just sitting still. Lol
