Huh, right after I put it on I got a bad garage smell on cold starts, but I figured that's because it had been sitting unused in the previous owner's garage for a while. Now that I've been driving it...

I have no idea how much it'd cost a machine shop to do the re-honing/re-planing and a local indie shop to do the rebuild, but it'll certainly be cheaper than what ECS charges. Pre-rebuilts are for...

How much hp?[/QUOTE]
Somewhere between 0-20 hp; I can say that with absolute certainty. It really depends on your build.

I also want to thank the guys that gave their input on removing the underhood blanket. I did so on Monday and have really enjoyed driving with the windows down since.

Yep, that is exactly why I've sworn of bolted flange exhausts. Way, way too much hassle. I'd rather pay a bit more upfront for v-bands. Or, in APR's case, OEM-style clamps.

And to add to everyone...
