Ah yes, well, we did make some progress, we got the bung for the wideband 02 welded on the flexpipe. Hit that with some paint. Got the old exhaust off, it was an interesting exhaust shop job for sure.

Problems started when we started to put the replacement exhause in place. It was the trubendz 2.5" stainless, with a borla muffler. I really liked the sound of this system on my Zetec, that's why I really wanted to put it on the project car. Unfortunately, the larger gas tank on the 2.3E does not provide enough clearance for the full size, almost 10" wide borla. I think, as a semi-temporary solution, I'll get the largest magniflow round muffler I can fit in there. We'll cut out the borla and weld in the replacement. Hopefully next weekend:(

In the future, maybe a trick Borla race muffler, but that'll cost some $$$$.

So until next weekend.
