Went ahead and put in a little system. Its a 12" mtx tr75 on a JL jx 500.1. I built a custom box for it tuned to 35 hertz and made a simple trim in the trunk.







Bought some more Snap On goodies!



Also Got an amazing deal that I couldn't pass up from my buddy. Its a 3" magnaflow catback. Which sounds really nice! Not too loud and not too quiet. Will have a vid of how it sounds soon.

How much did the head machining cost? did you do all the work yourself putting it back? I am about to attack my door cards and reupholster them, then looking at doing a real in depth engine bay detail thanks for the inspiration!

The machined head cost me $600 and i had my mechanic put it in. I want to see pics of your cleaned up engine when you get it done!
