So ... I sold some bitcoin (as the prices were really up) and I am considering purchasing 1320 Polished Headers.
Any opinions on these headers?
It looks like something I should be able to install myself....
Thanks in advance,
I am running the 1320 header and exhaust on mine and I love it. However, if you want to save a few dollars....go right to the manufacturer if you want the header & exhaust. If you're just getting the header than it is cheaper on Slingmods right now.
Haven't posted on here in a long time.....latest mods....hell I can't remember what I've previously posted.....so here they go:

And that is how the Thing-a-ma-sling looks today......
Well I haven't posted in a while....been busy last couple of months. Here is a list of what I have done so far....
Status Racing Shift Boot
Twist Dynamics Shift Knob
DDMWorks Short Throw Shifter
Assault Coil Cover
Floor mats & Trans mats
Tufskinz Headlight Decals
Tufskinz Mirror Decals
Tufskinz Side Panel Decals
Tufskinz Inside & Outside speaker decals
Still need to install the DDMWorks Coolant Hoses....and as always.....pics or it didn't happen.....
For those who have the 1320 header installed, have you noticed a substantial decline in gas mileage? I am still running stock exhaust and prior to changing the header I was averaging around 27 mpg.....now I am only seeing around 20.
A few things I've gotten done during this crap weather....Floor mats, shift boot & knob, short throw shifter, pedals, side panel decals, mirror decals, coil cover and 1320 header so far.....more to come!
Yeah, I had short shift in my old mustang and it can’t be beat. I was just concerned that I didn’t grease it enough and that’s why it’s louder, but think it’s just by design.
For those who have installed the short throw shifter, did you notice the shifter being louder through the gears after installation? I haven't taken it out on the road yet due to weather, but just noticed it sounded louder than stock when shifting through the gears sitting in the garage with the engine off. I greased everything, but wanted opinions before I tear it apart to add more grease.
I took the Slingshot out for a little ride tonight....it was chilly, but a great ride....anyway, while I was on my way home my check engine light came on. Took a picture of what the code displayed....anyone have any ideas?
Power: 200 Watt RMS
Woofer Size: 10"
Response: 75-150 Hz
Size: 13.60" L x 9.60" W x 2.60" H
The Kenwood I'm running is the KSC-SW11. It is 150 watt 8.25"x5.125 sub. It is 7.5"L x 11"W x 2.75"H. I think the problem you would have with the Cerwin Vega is because of the length, it will be too high at the rear side of the seat.
whoops attached pic
What are the dimensions on that unit? I only found 2 that will actually fit under the seats...a Pioneer and a Kenwood. I went with the Kenwood unit, but I may get rid of it and sacrifice a storage compartment. Also, there is a guy making a harness that will provide RCAs for amps and you won't have to screw with the factory harness. I can get the information if you need it.
I use a DJI Spark and love it. It has all the features you would need for doing amateur video/pics. Only down side is it doesn't have a 3 axis gimbal, but for me it is more than adequate.
I went with the Kenwood KSc-11
It’s not earth shattering bass, but sounds good enough for me. Grabbed it off Walmart.com for like $140 and fits perfectly under the seat.
Check out my setup....Audio Upgrade
@frehleycomet I am running the same fuse block on my Slingshot for all my lighting. I have 3 zones of lighting that I am running through it. Since I have no intention on using the other 3 circuits on the fuse block, I am using a switch to power my whole fuse block. I basically ran the yellow ignition wire to a switch, which I tied into a constant power source. I wanted the ability to power up all my lighting without the Slingshot being on. I also wanted to power down my controllers when they are not being used.
No need to drill... in fact, you’re better off not drilling as there’s plenty room to slide the wire to the battery. If your sitting in the drivers seat, run the wire down the left frame tube out underneath the rear of the sling. You can’t miss the exit out as the opening is about 1/4” wide.
In the photo: the black wire (which is 4AWG thick) slides right through the opening with ease... follow THAT tube.
I hope you have that distribution block wrapped with something?!
There is a hole that the wiring for the seat comes through that you can use, or just drill a hole. You’ll never see it anyways.
still unable to pick a good head unit. I have seen a couple saying that the sony xav 100 is a good unit. I want to get something reasonably safe with weather and need to get the water resistant casing for double din radios. I saw it once, but now I cant find it.
@Hernandeves5 check out this review of the Sony XAV on YouTube. I wouldn't be concerned about using the water resistant casing. I have a JVC head unit and have been caught in the rain more than once and haven't had any issues.
Great pic....mine doesn't match the jet, but here is a similar one....
