A little update: I talked to trs and they are sending me a replacement projector so I can swap it out
Bad news man, apparently TRS cannot communicate with their own employees. TRSMatt on HIDP said they have spare shrouds for the matchbox projectors they are going to sell on their site shortly. Well, Jamielle and Andrew both emailed me today and said that they do not have any spares in stock to sell. The only spares they have in stock match the number of matchbox projectors in stock :blinkhuh: So much for that idea.

My god they are killing me I scoured the site today to see if they posted them yet but no luck. I also need a new mounting nut since my kid lost mine somehow and they said they were out of stock so I may see if I can throw money at them and keep the one off the new one

:eek: Oh, so THAT's what a mostly finished retrofit looks like!!! I had almost forgotten, since I'm used to looking at my table of scattered parts! :tongue:

Nice work Ryan, those will look good on whoever's TB that gets them from you :thumbsup:

Wow, they messed that one up. I assume they are sending you a replacement free of charge or are they going to try to retrieve the one that went to Connecticut first?

Well, I just ordered headers and an exhaust that I had to order from the US since we don't have either Caprices or SS in Canada. Also trying to do wheels but tires are giving grief. I'm over at www.newcaprice.com , same user name.

nice did you go with the ceramic coated ones? and what brand? you are better off adding me on Facebook since I'm not really on forums anymore just PM me and I have been thinking about wheels later on after my headers and tune that should put me at over 450 at the crank

I don't do FB. I got Chevy SS Maximizer stainless headers with cats and JBA cat back that I will have to extend the tips for the longer Caprice. $2000 CAD total + taxes when I bring it all over the border. Didn't see anything ceramic coated off the shelf. Stainless is good enough for me. The manifolds on these are really choking these engines. Others measured the outlet at 1 7/8 to the cat! Basically the same size as one header runner.

since our cars are rare there is limited supply for good fit longtubes mine would still be about $1600 in the states but you should get them coated by a local shop if you can they reduce engine heat immensely and can be touched by hand shortly after the engine is shut down I had a family member with a built goat and it was crazy how fast they cooled down can't remember the tube size off the top of my head though
