So I finally finished my exhaust and it feels great. The guy did mint welds, he's been in the same shop 20 years down here in fl. I started with the 3" Ebay DP for $120 then the guy finished the rest for $450. Pulls great on the highway and feels wicked smooth now. I only have one problem, I just put in the samco TIP last week and it pulled hard and held boost strong for like a week. All of the sudden the boost started surging from 20 to 10 LBS and back to 20 again
I was wondering if anyone had some tips. I searched but I only found one topic and it was useless.
Thanks for the help, later.

As for the Samco TIP causing boost issues... do a log of block 115... I have heard of very very isolated cases of the samco TIP colapsing under boost (as odd as this sounds)...
I would log 115 and 002 to watch MAF and requested vs. actual boost..... also watch N75 duty cycle to see if its just surging or something more serious (a hose somewhere colapsing).

Hope this helps!
