In case someone in the future purchases it. They won't have any problems if their state does inspections. Will help to sell it easier. Once all this stuff is installed I'm never going to take it off when I get rid of it. Florida doesn't do emissions or inspections. Just thinking ahead.

Re: The Build has begun

Got ya. Completely understand, any idea on how green cats vs non-catted would affect performance?

Re: The Build has begun

I think it's just going to be how loud the exhaust is and the expense. I really don't think there is going to be hardly any performance difference. They are going to be better than the factory cats though. I was going with just the catted, not the green catted. I had already bought the headers last year when they put them up for sale. But, someone at Kook's had made an error and thought the WK1 6.1 headers would fit on the WK2 6.4. So luckily I had not tried to have them installed. I had also had them coated. So, now they don't offer the regular high flow cat. They just have the green catted which is more expensive. I just left off the coating to make up the difference in money and to get them on my Jeep during my build. Getting them coated takes a while.

Re: The Build has begun

Well hopefully thing will start moving again during the next week. Kook's mid-pipes have finally been sent, Custom torque converter and ATI flexplate and bracket's for SC will be delivered also. So maybe it'll be up and running here in the next week or two. There are some other things getting developed for it also for finished look. Just thought I would give you guys a little update.

Re: The Build has begun

Well it sounds like 95% of the pieces have been delivered. Should have the tranny, converter, midpipes, fuel tank installed the first couple of days this coming week. The bracket is complete and hopefully it fits the Procharger in correctly. The intercooler has already been installed along with the headers. Still need to run the pipes for the cooler too and then have it tuned. So maybe they'll be able to get some more pic's and a video of the startup here in the next week.

And more pics. Everything underneath has been installed. And they found a little surprise on the oil pan.

Re: The Build has begun
