Wires are due in tomorrow, and I need to check home tonite for the receipt I scribbled the spark plug type on. If not here, it's in the toolbox receipt folders.

I had just finished dropping the cradle and replacing the power steering rack due to that twitch (did I post that here" I had videos...), and the passenger side SVT axle out for a rockauto-espezial. $65. Let's see how well it runs the airport trip. Halfway home... man, alive!





whaddabout dat axle, doe?!?!?!?!?








This one we got here... I fashioned a modified heat shield out of a 2000's Eclipse exhaust heat shield that was rattling and I ended up helping out. Worked in both favors!

I'm a bit stuck between tuning phases right now and the crux of it came down to the downpipe I made... do I just remove it and find a shop to bend it a skosh with a mandrel machine (can a shop use a machine to correct a mandrel bend?!), do I source myself a pile of new exhaust pieces and a spot of plate steel to remake another flange AND THEN fabricate that 2.5"-to-3" downpipe they talked about? That one that will allow proper efficiency ranges (and allow 40 more ft-lbs at the wheel) for the overkill hairdryer I wound up throwing on there!?!?!?!

I'm finding when I ask car questions that hinge 50/50, I usually ask because I wanna see if everyone else would do it the lazy way or the right way. Then do it right; looks like I'm shopping, Keefs.

You can TRY to find a shop, the question will be if any of your additions to the pipe get in the way of the bender.
