The Caddy is finally back after my header install nightmare. Damian and the guys over at F-Body Central took really good care of her. The tac issue turned out to be a pinched wire that was practically split in two when Damian found it.

The sluggishness I believe was a combination of things including the SuperChips tune which didn’t compensate at all for the headers.

After a very thorough dyno tune, the car is running very strong. The Mustang Dyno is reporting 427rwhp and 412rwtq.

I highly recommend these guys for anyone in the area needing a good tune or any work done for that matter. :thumbsup:

Cheers!!

If you ever get my headers on, I'll consider it. Just re-upped my AAA membership for when my diff detonates. Guess what? Got the extended towing option too, so don't be surprised if my car is dropped off out in front of your house on night:)

Don't forget the MAF/MAP stuff for my car.

Not sure about this weekend. Condo is being used by my buddy's parents in town for the weekend. Call me.

In short, the tac bounced around but for the most part stayed dormant. It wasn’t moving or registering. It turned out that the coil bracket on the driver side, for all intents and purposes, cut the wire.

That about somes up my "Go Fast" parts...

Quick run down

05 V (of course black -it's the fastest), Maggie, SW long tubes with RT CATs, MagnaFlow exhaust, UUC, Hot Bars, CCW SP600, and Specter Spoiler. I'm sure I'm forgetting stuff...

The car came up the upgraded shock package, FG2...

I have a Volant CAI but it was determined not to do much with my setup so if anyone is interested, please let me know.
