is it easy to find the parts needed to do this at local hardware stores? Newbonne has the kit but all it is is rubber caps, copper washers, and bolts.

just wondering if every one who did the ai removal bought the kit online or just went looking for the pieces.

thanks.

The AI is the secondary air injection system. It's an emission reduction feature. It puts air into the exhaust to burn any unburnt fuel that would otherwise exit out the pipe. By doing this It also raises the exhaust temperature which increases the discoloration of the header pipes. Part of it consists of the tubes you see that screw into the heads by the spark plugs. Removing it does nothing to increase performance.
