I've had some issues with my car and check enigine light that I have successfully addressed. I had to get a new intake and replace my cat to take care of if. So I had the stock cat replaced with a 2.5 inch unit to match my exhaust...so I took some pics during an oil change. enjoy.

new intake to replace piece of crap intake from Streetstyler.com. AEM SRI FTW!!!!!

Yes that is an actual cat it's just a universal 2.5 inch cat.

The Header is Megan it was inexpensive and it is starting to rust a little.

I would have take more shots but the batteries died, i have no idea what my roomie did with my rechargeables.

Thanks for the comments. :D

So far I've no issues out of the pullies. The car revs a little faster and pulls a little harder. The lager cat made a difference as well. I still need to get that clutch and flywheel installed. but i want to fix my bumper before that happens. I may take a few more pics of the pullys when i rotate my tires. you can see the crank pully relaly well with the drivers side front wheel off. :D

Zeus, as for was the header worth it. yeah for the money it was. For me I proply should have left it and the intake alone because I really feel that boost still isn't out of the question and when I do boost (which will still be a while) that will have been money wasted. Only time will tell. Oh and the blue brake fluid, I'm not sure where my buddy Wes got it. We had to top off when I went to Carbon Metallic pads a while back.

a good quality crank pully is ok. UR cad engineers their pullies when in most cases they are better than OEM quality. i had the same aprehensions about it, but the more I read on the subject the more i was convinced pullies are a good bang for the buck mod.

i'll take my chances. but the pullies have ony been on there for few months, i just wasn't online much the past few months. i didn't want to post about them until i had a chance to take the pictures. i still need to rotate my tires and when i do i'll take another picture with the wheel off, the crank pully is all nice and shiney, LOL
