I'll let pics do the talking.

30 hours in the job thus far. Excellent progress considering all.
Goal - make it functional now; make it pretty later.

If anyone is available evenings this week let me know. 2 guys make it much more fun!

Thanks:

Rob - for getting his hands dirty

Image

Image

Rick - breaking a serious sweat

Image

Image

Randy - tools

Where can I get top banjo in the bottom size?

Progress looks good.

Tape your fenders off to avoid random scratches during work :)

Randy, you're already disappointing!

carline guelph. the drivers side pipe rusted off the muffler... nothing to do with them though. I have a new muffler so ill have to install that some time. we have extra 2.5'' and elbows... check out the exhaust on the 32 and see what you think. the lift is occupied now, but if you're interested in the material I cn get you a price. ill probably do mine at carline soon.

Extra 2.5"? Purfect. My exhaust (up to cat delete pipe) is 2.5".

Get me a price mang. Let's do it! It may be a few weeks to we get to putting an exhaust together anyways.

Sorry, I didn't mention it's 304 stainless... this stuff is niiiiice. it's heavier wall than cheapo stainless tubing and it welds amazing.

we have about 6-1/2' of the tubing for $15.50/ft. The elbows are also 90* 304ss for $19/ea.

Update:

Getting EGT probe welded into downpipe today.

Started routing vacuum lines, intake plunbing and such and decided to remove N249, SAI and bunch of other emissions related hardlines. It is really cleaning up the bay!
