Thanks for the positive comments guys!!
Well, I decided early on that if I wanted to do this type of exhaust I'd be pulling the gas tank to make room. We're going to cut the rocker and box it in with sheet metal and then cut a rectangle hole in the SC body kit; We're also putting a fuel cell in the trunk. It's turning into "if you want to do this, you need to do that... and to do that, you need to do this first..." and where does it end?!
Since the car has been down for new white paint last fall (Ford PW white), I've decided to go ahead and do all the goodies I've been dreaming of... double din DVD, T45 swap, tint, PBR/bolt pattern swap, wheels & tires, custom exhaust...
It's a lot of work and money, but believe me- there was not one MN12 at the last car show here last summer. I hope you guys don't get the impression I'm some wealthy a**hole with nothing better to spend his money on... I work full time as an engineering technician while going to school full time and paying cash for classes. I work my F*ing butt off to support my cars and education. I'm very, very fortunate to have my old man that loves me and lets me use his milling machine anytime I like. (shifter extension box).
Back to the subject though, I think I'll need to put in a set of those Summit universal air bags to keep the rear from squatting with a full fuel cell.
I'm thinking I can re-use the OE in-tank pump in the FC. If anyone has been down this road, I'd love to hear about it.
Thanks again for looking and commenting guys!
And thanks a lot to N8tiveJuggalo17, aka Jeremy for giving me a killer deal on the Eibachs. He honored his word and sent me the springs asap! Thanks for the drop bro!
