    2500 That aint bad. I plan on, once I do it, to do it myself, and take the time to learn it, rather than have some one else do it for me. I do have one question though, I dont plan on doing for at least another year or so, but once I do, could I seek your advice on it?

    What was the size and part number for your muffler if I may ask? I need to get a new exhaust including the cat,so I thought I would cut the pipe before the cat and use a 3 inch race bullet and a pipe to the muffler instead. I can have a muffler shop adapt the 3 inch to my existing front pipe for now.

    Agreed,but I want to do the L67 swap in the next year,and I need to get a good exhaust for now so I figured on doing from the cat back for now.

    The muffler is a Dynomax Ultraflow, part # 17229, which is 19" long. I used an 18" Dynomax Bullet, part # 24219, as a resonator. I really wanted a Magnaflow muffler with was 22" long to make it even quieter but the ship date kept getting pushed back so I changed it to a Dynomax instead. The car was a little loud and raspy when it was still supercharged, but it's nice and quiet now with the turbo.

    I forgot to mention that the Turbo L67 Ciera is down because I broke the input shaft on my transmission. It was bound to happen though when you take into consideration that the car is making 450+ HP.

    if you used a non s/c ecm, i'm guessing you had to program it to run the supercharger?

    The PCM is from a '99 GT and a '99 GTP is actually the same part but with a different operating system. I just reflashed it with a '99 GTP OS.

    The initial swap took my probably ~2 months, but I only worked on it a couple hours a night. Kinda hard to remember exactly how long it took because I did it 2 years ago.

    did you have to use your hp tuner to do that or did you do something else? i'm illiterate on tuning, any good websites to learn the terms, how to do it, and where to get programs and cables for a pc?
