looks great, how long did that header install take? Also, whats the exhaust note sound like now, do you have any sound/movie clips? i LOVE the sound of the 2JZ... trying to get my hands on one... so i'm already looking around for an exhaust for my imaginary IS ;)

The header install is a good chunk of work. The worst part is getting the stock header out of the engine bay. Definitely takes 4 hands to work that thing outta there.

With my injen intake, HP header and Tanabe exhaust, this car sounds great while cruising and freaking screams WOT.

The tanabe is loud, but doesn't sound ricey at all.

I have yet to hear anyone who hears it say anything negative.

paint?
 
What did you use to paint your brake calipers? Where did you get the logo? It looks like you didnt have to remove the caliper all the way, i think you left the brake line connected. Is that right?

Thanks,

Mark

I used high temp paint from a local auto store.

The logo's were purchased online from a guy that had an extra set.

I did removed the caliper braket, but the actual caliper, I did not remove. Just hung it from the shock/strut tower with a wire hanger.

Brake lines were left connected to the caliper.

Bump.

Looks like a new install will be posted soon.

:woohoo:

Nice job.

Just a note: the Flex install page keeps mentioning Tanabe. ;)
