Seaforth: The entrance to Seaforth is on US 64. Traveling west on US 64, go over the bridge on Jordan Lake. The Seaforth entrance is on the left

Haha, kinda still around. I love the C5 Z but I'm really getting the itch for some boost again...

Just got my RS back from Force Fed doing a little preventative maintenance and a retune :-)

FYI for anyone interested, five of us are going to the Dragon from 4/4 to 4/7. We booked cabins at Fontana Village. Cabins are still available and reasonably priced, especially if you split it with someone!

If you're looking for a shop, I would recommend Force Fed in Fayetteville.

Hey guys, hope everyone had a merry Christmas and happy new year. With the new year, I'm looking to swap out the exhaust on my Evo as I'm getting that dreaded P0420 code for a bad cat. I've gone ahead and purchased a Buschur Racing TBE and an AEM AFR gauge. Unfortunately for me, I don't trust myself doing the gauge install. Anyone have any recommendations more local to Raleigh, I'd really appreciate it. (I understand force-fed is good, but i'm not looking to drive an hour+ for that)

Installing a wideband gauge is pretty simple as long as you got a test pipe or high flow cat with the bung already welded in. Installed the wideband gauge on my old X w/out any problems. I'm confident you could knock that job out, no problem. Or, if you'd like some help I'd be glad to lend a hand.

I'm not really familiar with any of the local import shops. Most of the big ones I know of are Force-Fed down in Fayetteville, Dyno Time out in Hickory, and there's one down in Charlotte but I'm drawing a blank on the name.

I already have the bung welded in so that shouldn't be an issue. I'm just more concerned that the 3 ton jack stands I have only give me a few inches to a foot of clearance under the car and I'm imagining it's gonna be more hassle and time consuming than just bringing it to a place. I'm not against doing it myself, and having a helping hand, just figured it'd be much easier to bring it to a place instead. I appreciate the offer

You really only need to be under the car long enough to screw in the sensor into the HFC/TP. The rest of the job is just running wires and setting up the gauge.

Anybody else familiar with any local shops?

Yeah my garage, haha. AKillEaze exhaust & wideband install are easy. Install exhaust, mount gauge, run wiring, power & ground and install wideband sensor in exhaust. I would highly suggest disabling the rear 02 sensor via ECUFlash since that is where the wideband sensor will go. But if you don't have a tactrix cable or ECUFlash you won't be able to do that. So with that being said, I suggest taking it to Force-Fed again.
