Like fast said, I am jealous of your progress as well! I have such big plans, but am broke as hell! That truck looks great!

There's a few blemishes here and there that we'll have to fix. Then wet sand and buff.

The installation was a little tough I guess. I'm a pretty experienced mechaninc too. I think the hardest part was that their directions could have been a little more specific for my model. They were pretty vague but I figured it all out. Thank goodness I happen to have the vacuum hose diagram from the factory manual or I would have been a bit lost. It really helped. There's a lot of stuff that you just do away with when you put these on.

It definitely helped with power through the whole range. I just took a nice long power drive and was able to get it up to 85 in 4th gear. I couldn't even do that in 5th gear before at all, so I'm impressed. I love the sound too. It sounds like a cold air intake from under the hood every time I hit the throttle. I was very surprised about that since I wasn't expecting it to sound so cool. I'm definitely glad that I went with the Outlaw 38 instead of the 32/36 progressive. I'm sure the other one would have been just fine but I don't want just "fine". My daily driver is a turbo GTI so I guess I'm spoiled now. I want my truck to perform too
