Ive seen something about getting it wet before you wrap, but I think that depends on what material the wrap is made from. Youre a dealer tech installing header wrap?

Please tell me this wasn't covered under warranty.

We dealer techs will do anything if paid to do it.

Hell no and he don't care. To give a great example of how deep this guys pockets are, he is from out of town and when we told him it would take a few days to figure out the problems and fix it after he towed it in his response was "where is the sales department". He then proceeded to buy a 2500 because in his exact words "I gotta get back on the road, I'm losing money if I stay here, and I need a work truck anyway"

If you use the Ti stuff its really straight forward. Just get sharp scissors and have some metal zip ties handy.

Very true but the company we talked to that did all the work know him personally so I doubt it. He has apparently done work like this before to other vehicles.

That's what I am trying to get. The only place around here that has anything that's good is our local Harley dealer. Waiting on a reply if they will sell us any of their ti wrap they use. My mother-in-laws bf had some put on his bike. I know it works and looks like quality stuff too so that's what I'm shooting for first.

I buy plenty of stuff there, but in general I only plan on using it once.

I am the harbor freight guy in the shop, I am also the only guy that doesn't owe anything on my tools. You have to be selective on what you get though. a lot of stuff is great but some of it is cheap crap. I have a nice mix of hf, kobalt, ingersall, and matco. The only thing snap on I have is a few old chrome sockets I got during my high school internship and a 3/8ths gun that I got for like 60%off (Ill be going with kobalt 24v when it dies, the snapon has been rebuilt once already within the 1yr warranty and the light just quit working a few weeks ago) Matco I have a set of 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 swivel sockets. Only got those bc they were half off.

******* HATE the 07 SS S/C non-recaro seats. I got ripped off big time - G85 package but no Recaros. Turbo model released a year later.

Seriously they are the worst seats ever though. Zero support on the bottom cushion. The recliner is garbage - it's either too far back or too far forward. Only good thing is the lumbar and the heaters.

I know it's Saturday now but seeing as these are the the busiest threads I figured I'd ask here anyway before starting a thread. Has anyone found a conical paper filter (that isn't K&N) to replace the K&N conical filter on the SRI? I'll clean the K&N one eventually but I want to try a paper one while in the process. Also getting a P0133 for the first time and not sure if it's cause the filter is dirty or what.

Why would you want a paper air filter? I use AEM dryflow.

Figured it would be cheap to throw on in an interim basis. Aren't stock air filters considered paper?
