Huge Massive Thanks.............

............to Vcook, Mopar, Jimzx9R and Good2go for all their efforts on getting my HMF Full System installed for me - It was a piece of cake - A FUCKED UP BIG FAT PIECE OF SHITTY ASS CAKE but it is all on now and sounds great and feels purty darned nice as well - That map Vcook feels right - The ease of the install:

1. HMF sent wrong parts but sent the right ones later (2 sessions)
2. The High Mount Pipe was aboooot 3 inches too long and required cutting
3. SUPER tight fit on the farings which will need to be kept under review
4. Had to lose my custon turn signal set up in the back (sorry GG)

Have a few pics but do not know how to resize them and seeing as I just clogged Vcooks inbox with 3 emails of 5 pics each from last night, I hope to get to strats this Wed

Thanks again guys and Chris, love that fiddy Bro - Jim, you need a mullet - Alex, missed ya today man - Steve, ya jackass, I am still draggin ass from last night

Some racecar type shops carry it, or something very similar. I know I saw it at Street Stuff in Addison before.

I do like those but no CF and no High Mount on that - I thought Steve did the horn bolts?

No plans on changin - That is Vcooks way of saying, "if ya bought this, it would have been easier to install, like I told ya in the 1st place"

I like the HMF and I love the High Mount - Now I gotta get the plate registered and back tickers on

Thanks everyone - I am very happy with it and without going ape shit on the way home, it felt great today - I can smell the heat shield tape burning but I will just have to keep an eye on it

jrock - I had to buy them all hookers and pizza - It is not me that they like, it is my "install tactics" that they seem to agree with

I'm glad the can didn't fall off yet...or I would feel kind of bad.

My hooker could have been a bit fatter, oh well. Maybe next time.
