New exhaust on... Some ****ty pics

Got my car back from the exhaust shop today...
New exhaust from the headers...
SS dual 2.5" pipes into magnaflow cats and the into Borla Pro Xs mufflers...

A little different way to route the pipes though, the guys wanted to
straighten out the bends as much as possible...
But it looks really good and man WHAT A NICE RUMBLE...
'til I open it up.... Then it almost sounds evil!
It get's me horny anyway....

Thanks for setting me up with the Borla's Kodiak Kid!!!

Some pics...







As you can see they really went all the way with stabilising the exhaust
and they do know how to weld...

I'll see if I can get a video or at least a sound clip up later tonite..

Yeah, they're pretty good... The waiting time to get you car done is over 2½ months... And people travel a looong way and actually stays at hotels nearby
when they have their exhaust done there...
But they charge pretty much for the works though....
I brought the Borlas and the cats.. So they pretty much just bent the pipes
and put them in them.... Price?? 820 bucks!

Thyg0d,

Looks great!!! The brace is great. Wanna trade? Mine only has a split in the Y-pipe... nothing major.

Can't tell completely from the pics, but the tips do look a little close to the bumper. You may want to keep an eye on them. My '89 got a little bit of a deformed bumper that way from the exhaust heat.

GO RATTLE SOME WINDOWS, MAN!

That is all...

Experience is simply knowing what not to do... and knowing what won't work.
The Car... 324,201 and still goin' strong; Me... I'm NOT a complete idiot - still missing a few parts.

Finally I got the video...
Not the best sound but I had to compress the sh!t out of
the video to get it down to a somewhat downloadable size...

9.5 megs

Enjoy!

Waldorf:
Thanks man! Rattled a few windows... My neighbours hate me now!
Checked the tips after you posted and there at least an inch clearence so I think
it should be good... The picture makes it look like they're almost touching...

Nice, has a unique sound to it. Love your rims too.

Better fix your brake lights though.

Thanks!

The brake lights work again....
Forgot to hook 'em up after the cartester facility check it...
We're not allowed to have red blinkers.. So I've got some small lights
that I throw on to pass the tests... Or when the cops pull me over.. *sigh*

Nope... you're not missing a darn thing!
White for front (low/high beam)
amber for sides (blinkers or to tell someone your vehicle is looong)
red for back... (brakes exception backup lights, gotta be white)

We must have the low beam on during the day,
no fog lights, parking lights... Nothing else but lowbeams..
Brakelight has to be red and the blinkers has to be amber...
And everything has measurements... Every light has specefic measurements
x m apart, y m from the ground, visible in different angles and so on...
It's REALLY fun to own a car not made for the Euro market over here...

Oh... and all housings for the lights has to be approved and
have the correct stamps and sh!t on them... *sigh*
So all the aftermarket lights are illegal...
It takes me about two hours to get my car from "factory" to "legal"..
Fortunately I only have to do this once a year...
