    Here's the Muffler installed.

    A couple of other gear heads hanging around the shop said its actually still pretty loud, so don't be fooled by the video. I think it sounds really good, and still super mean. The guys around the shop thought so also. They've never seen anything like my truck, lol.

    Also, I don't seem to be leaking oil any more. I wonder if it was just residual oil from when I had the valve cover off earlier working its way off the block. I'll keep an eye on it, as I'm not taking the valve cover off just to take it off. I'm really hoping I scared the leak away by buying valve covers.

    I'm getting closer and closer now.
    The water/meth seems to have the right jet now and boost is coming on early as the truck pieces as a whole start to work together.
    The truck was always soft leaving the line, but I'm finding I can add a bunch more timing back in the lower ranges and the launch is picking up quite a bit.

    I don't think I could do a massive burn out yet, but maybe with foot braking to get in to boost before launch.
    I think the 1/4 mile time would be respectable now, but I just don't want to beat on the old girl as I need it to carry me thru the winter.

    It's definitely the fastest its ever been.
