    NSFW language as I couldn't find another word for how long its been or that it fired up so ferociously after so many months since the last motor's demise.

    Congrats ;D You language was pretty under control considering.

    The 302R stuff, is that different from the regular Boss stuff? I thought the exhaust cam was the main difference, but you list the regular Boss one for that.

    Its just how they bill it in the catalog, same stuff as a factory boss on the top-end. Basically this motor is roadrunner with different brand forged internals, slight bump in compression, but a GT flywheel, crank (rebalanced) and chain tensioners (couldn't find the boss ones and was told it really isn't that big a deal)

    Have you ran it with that clutch yet? Give us a review on that clutch if so cause that looks like the clutch I have been looking at. Right around $1400 correct?

    I paid under $1000, used my stock flywheel (there's a slight overhang in the center, but I've had no issues). I've run the clutch for 8k miles and love it so far. There's some noise associated with it, a grumble at idle, and if you lug it in any gear, there's a bean-in-coffee-tin sort of sound to it. Outside the noise, its super light, only slightly grabbier than stock (and only really in LA-style traffic). I think its a great way to eliminate some of these issues but still maintain streetable manners.

    well, I put 50 miles on it. I forgot how light the clutch is. Very little chatter if you try to let it slip a lot (which I had a habit of doing because the porsche boxster's motor mounts were shot thus tried to keep clunking under control), but its super streetable.

    The car is so ungodly loud and gnarly. I'm sure some people would love it, but the tone isn't controlled enough for me, even the Boss 302R's sound more controlled.

    So you have stock headers, off road X pipe and aftermarket mufflers? New mufflers to quite it down? You should be able to find take off Boss 302 mufflers for cheap.

    My setup is stock headers, jegs cat deletes, boss 302 midpipe (restrictor plates out), then the magnaflow 3" competition catback (which has a different muffler attachment than the stock ball/socket fitting, so I'll have to replace it whole, and I didn't think to keep my over-axle pipes)

    Well
    I have the 1. 7/8 headers. Off road x pipe
    And stock everything else
    With the quads capped at this point the cars
    Old man quiet

    I would think stock mufflers would be the
    Same for you

    I am thinking about those gt500 style mufflers myself

    no kidding. I just need the stock overaxle pipes or aftermarket ones so I can get the ball/socket fitting back since the magnaflow stuff uses a slip fit joint. (or I could have a shop alter the AB to match).
