sailor 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.

Mile30 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.

Mile30 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!

Mile30 Alright. P0302 Misfire - Cylinder 2.

Mile30 Oh man. Got it running after all the figuring and waiting; couldn't even really enjoy driving 'cause I'm just waiting fo the next thing... halfway home from work and the pedal responds differently and it starts sounding like a flat-four.

Do you guys also hat having to pull off and gut up under the hood, too?!?!?!?!?!?

It had done this thing when I had the carbon fiber valve cover and I was able to figure it out then, pull over and push one of the boots on better and hear/feel the click. I didn't see anything roadside so I got back out there. I whip out the code reader and scroll past the ones I know about for a P0302 about a half mile away. Hahaha... I made it, though.
Back in the driveway with more time, the hood's up for another push test and the boots all feel okay, but the minute light hit the 2nd's boot-end you can see this chalky white crystal on both it and the plug. Found it!
