    Wanted to say awesome write regarding the exhaust manifolds. Was wondering where you got the bolts for the headers as I was also thinking of using bolts instead of studs.

    Finally got some miles on the truck with the shorty headers and the borla cat back. At this time the Y-pipe is not installed. I was curious how it would run without it. Mileage went down from 11 to 10 towing the trailer, and from 18 to 16 without trailer. And keep in my those are bigger Imperial gals. 4.54 litres vs. 3.78 litres for a U.S. gal. Seat of the pants power went way up in both modes. Without trailer the truck reminded me of my 1984 Mustang GT with the 5.0 L 4 bbl. and 5 spd. trans. It would pass on hills with lots to spare. I'm more than happy with the power increase. The borla exhaust sounds almost exactly like stock muffler. No drone. Not intrusive in anyway. There is more of a mechanical sound but it sounds so good. No flutter either. I'm kinda reluctant now to add the y-pipe. But will eventually. When I finally figure out how to post I'll add this info for general viewing. Any pointers on how to do that? The F.A.Q. section didn't explain well enough for me.

    Great D.I.Y. articles. I'm gonna try n tackle the hubs in the near future. I put on the same cryo discs and hawk pads a few years back, but garage said they had worn down too much when I brought truck in for a new emerg. brake cable. Presently have a set of JBA titanium coated shorty headers, a borla stainless cat back muffler sys., and waiting on a spd y- pipe to arrive. Oh ya, I have a 2004 reg cab long box super duty. with 5.4. Have a 3 horse trailer that causes a lot of W.O.T. going up the hills on the north shore of Lake Superior. Hoping the ex. mods will help. Also replaced stock filter with a K and N. Am strongly leaning towards the SCT tuner package as well. Will post my seat of the pants opinion once every thing installed.

    Thanks for the feedback. Those of us who volunteered for this have been asked to provide feedback and I'll roll your comments into my response. We've had "open house" for about 6 years now but only the past few years have been focused on "family science" so its still kind of a learning curve with all the exhibits and stuff. Glad you made it to the telescope!

    Yeah, it seemed busier this year than last. You guys did a good job organizing though. We didn't build rockets this year, but watching the launches it was much more streamlined having multiple pads lined up compared to last year.

    I'm not sure what I think of the prize drawings, though. In hind sight, we probably should have ignored it and just spent time seeing the displays without worrying about how many places we stopped and getting the sheets initialed. At least we got down to the telescope tour this year.
