Default Vortec Cyclone

Did a search but couldn't find a match. Seems too good to be true for $39.99, here's the link if you haven't heard about it before.
http://www.vorteccyclone.com/index.html I'm curious if anybody here has one on their truck.

if you order that make sure you order a new set of muffler bearings. the new airflow will cause extra wear to those bearings..

I found the easiest way to solve the extra wear on the bearings, was to install an O-pipe. X=pipes aren't enough. The O-pipe gives you enough equalized backpressure to eliminate the extra load on the muffler bearings. It will up your blinker fluid consumption though. I guess thats just the price you pay for power.....

couldnt you just add a high flow cat instead of a O pipe?

While Snipe hunting near Douglas Wyoming my D-50's Muffler Bearings went out. While waiting for a tow truck I had the opportunity to bag a Snipe but a Jackalope jumped out from a bush and scared it off. Dang!

My fiance's car has been running a little rough, so one day me and her checked all the fluids and stuff. Then she went in. I finished up everything and went in and told her: "found out your problem babe, yu blinker fluid was low." She's like really! Did you fill it up? im like "yeah, but you may need to check it so that your muffler bearing doesn't wear out." She said ok. IT was freakin hilarious! I then busted out laughing and told her none of these existed, boy was she mad...lol
