    Sounds good Ernie. How long since you've had it running?

    Thanks Richard, hell yea it feels good, we are empty nesters so we are always traveling, between doing stuff on the Jeep, my grandson and casinos I have not had time to work on this thing, what I need to do is get the dam SRT10 done, it’s been in the shop for about 4 years now

    It always amazes me how easy these things start. After sitting or a complete engine build. Turn the key, let the fuel pump charge the system and bang, it starts. No screwing around with gas down the carb, or no burnt arm hair and eye brows.

    This post could've easily been an April fools joke but good on you for posting video proof!
    I was amazed how fast mine fired up too. 1st attempt starting up the 408 rebuild, it came to life without any hesitation actually took me by surprise

    Now that I got this thing up and running, I’ll be pulling the flip up screen out and installing a double din screen Pioneer, and I’ve got to get these Spintechs on, question is X pipe or not,

    Won't make much of a difference. Torque may be a bit more with the x but nothing you're gonna feel.
    Go with the easiest set up.

    H work better than the X pipe ? I have plenty of room since both pipes run on the passenger side I can do either or, I just remember spintech came with the X system, and I’m probably doing side exits, cause the axle dumps are coming off
