you just have to tell yourslelf.....i'm gonna make it i'm gonna make it....lol       yes i did clear coat them as i did the last rail. the v6 rail turned out pretty nice imo and the clear coat really made them pop so i did it again.  i bought the wrap off of ebay and the people i worked with this last time seem to be about the best folks i've dealt with yet and about mid range on price compared to all the auctions. he was willing to lay it out on the computer and send me a pic of how i wanted it before he made them.....none of the others have ever done that.   rockstargraphix@hotmail.com he will sell outside of the auction as well and a little cheaper.

I'm going to have to look at your cars closer next time. To be honest I didn't pay enough attention last time,ds.

lol ya it will be a while before he lives that one down lol lol


well I re-built my exhaust pipe from the header back. when I origanly made the exhaust I had to use 2  90* mandrel bent tubes to run the exhaust in 2.25" od tube where it would fit......I have been fighting the motor not producing the power it should. well I have thought it could be several things so I have done some checking on the motor via timing   valve lash     comp test and checked the timing chain. I did discover two bad coils or weak atleast and worn out throttle body assembly and thought that would fix the problem since it just felt like the timing was off. enemy took it for a ride at the dunes and removed the pre cleaner to see if that would let more air in and have any effect, it did have a little seat of pants feel of improvement but the filter is soooo big I just can't believe that was the issue. I checked tps and it was off a bit so I adjusted that. now all of these changes did make a sizable diff but still not where it should be and the bazzaz auto tuner just doesn't want to add fuel it wants to pull fuel from stock map from the get go. finally saw it add fuel after the above changes and mods but not more that 15%.   so decided ( after talking to a few guys that know a thing or two about busa's) and decided it has to be the exhaust. I took the stock header and used a 3" tube to merge them into 1 so I cut it there and went to 2.5" mandrel bent tube. I bought a 180* and cut it since I couldn't make a straight shot for the new placement I had to put  a small jog down and back up in it to use my current tip which I like lol. so I cut 2 45* pieces then cut them down to close to 30* and rolled them on each other like a sink trap but shallow one at that. wrapped it after I welded it and fired the rail back up in auto tune mode. now it's been toooooo cold to make a run through the field so I just revved it to 8k rpm 3 times slowly to see what it wanted to do with the map......now on the last day of the last trip I started the auto tune and never checked it so when I pulled up the data it wanted to pull another 17% fuel so I erased all that and started it up to rev it. now just with that it wants to add 28% fuel up to 8k so when I get time I will have to make a run through the field to see some real results but looks promising so far!!!!

Why are you feeling you need to add so much fuel? You're not turbo'd.
