I see you used Novak for some parts. I resourced them for a hydraulic clutch linkage kit and ended up talking to the guy for an hour about his jk he's swapping in a ls7 motor and just loved their knowledge. I recommend them to everyone. My cj is not my DD but I used to drive it everyday as I used to work 6 miles from where I live. Now I drive 31 miles just to get to work and my mpg is about 8 unlike yours. I wish I had as much as yours does and the power you have. I love my setup but will switch to a 4 barrel or efi next summer. What mufflers are you running?

Novak has been fantastic for me as well, but not cheap. I'm thought about putting an lt1 in but I really liked the gen3 engines so we went with that. Currently I have a flowmaster super 44 with a 3inch inlet and 2 2.5s out. But I flipped it backwards to work so I have 2 flexible pipes going from the engine to the two outlets lol I just wanted to get it in the road. Once I get a front driveshaft ill get a real system made, but I think ill keep the super 44

I too have the super 44's and love them. When I bought it there were flex pipe and only cats and no mufflers on it. Sounded like a tractor and was way to loud. Novak is alittle high on price but it was worth it for me as their kit was a direct bolt in even with my swapped trans and I'll pay for quality. Im sure yours was expensive as I know how much it costs to swap a LS series motor and that is why I don't have one. You still have stock axles? If so I doubt they will last long. If you got a front bumper like a Hanson or warn that would complement those fenders a ton and just make it look even more sick than it is. Make one like those would be even better.

Yea I love the sound of the 44. I'm saving my money for warn winch bumper hopefully soon. Or ill make one. As for axles I'm runnin waggy 44s . I knew id shred the stock axles pretty quick.

Talked with the shop today, it was just a pin in the trans that had fallen out. He has also pointed out a few mistakes I made and has been working on it in his down time. Really a great group of guys. To anyone in the chicagoish area that needs trans work its multistate transmissions ask for al. Im really excited, should be picking it back up today or tomorrow
