Great News: Stainless Works Longtubes/Complete exhaust for JGC SRT8 coming!

I just got off the phone with Al, owner of Stainless Works in Chagrin Falls, OH (www.stainlessworks.net) and am extremely excited about the fact that my JGC will be the donor vehicle for fitment of their new full exhaust.
SW is well known in both Ford/GM camps for building some of the finest exhaust products money can buy. Another large benefit that SW provides is the use of non restrictive metallic substrate cats.
As soon as SCT releases a tuning solution to our engine management I'll drop my Jeep off. The prototyping should take around 2-3 weeks tops and there will be before/after dynos for all to see.
Anyway, just thought I'd share the good news. Another exhaust option, made by a tier one builder, is always a good thing.
I'm driving up next week to do a story on their new GT500 full exhaust and will post some pics of their work on this forum to give everyone an idea of what they can expect.
Just to clarify, we're waiting for tuning software because they tune before and after install to ensure we know exactly what gains the exhaust netted. They've already done a magnum SRT8 and found the A/F to be pig rich (killing power) after 4500rpm.

Thanks

Thats nice.. good luck with your system, I hope they can come up with something different than others, something that can be special in all terms from bends, mufflers, to Tips.

Thanks, and rest assured it will be a 100% custom designed system.

Crossing my fingers that its less than the insane pricing of the "other" headers at $1700.

They do have a pretty good rep. on Ford sites, however, I have seen a thread recently of a bunch of guys complaining about the quality of the headers they received...fit and finish items.

Oh yeah...they ain't cheap eiter...so I would expect pricing to be similar to Kooks.

Interesting. I've never heard anything bad reg. SW, but everyone I know in the Mustang world with Kooks or Hookers hates them.
