Got a pleasant surprise today

Figured I'd perform some maintenance on the house today. I purchased some Bilistien shocks back in December along with a Banks cold air intake and a Gibson exhaust setup. All of this will get installed in a couple of weeks at a friends house since he has the room.

Anyways I saw two boxes with the exhaust and assumed both were new mufflers since my stock setup has two installed. I opened the boxes up today and was surprised to see a set of headers too! I paid $560 for a complete performance exhaust since CW wanted to get rid of it.

I also checked the water level in the house and coach batteries. They were newly installed in December and other than two weeks, we haven't used the coach other than me starting everything up monthly. Each battery water level was low and took about 20 oz to fill in each battery. It's possible they were low when installed as the dealer had them in before we arrived. I'll start checking these monthly too.

I look forward to seeing the difference with new shocks, exhaust and the cold air intake. We will be taking short trips over the weekends but the wife & I are heading to Maine in June.

Congratulations! I like suprises like that, instead of the ones- that I normally get- where you open and are missing a key item(s).
