Sigh, spent about ten hours wiring and rewiring my stepdad's new radio. I think it's a dud. Not getting any power.

A local buddy of mine's SVT blew a head gasket. He is now selling it if anyone is interested in it. 98k mi on it it's red with red interior. Definitely will need a new head and possibly motor, there was water found in the oil after it blew. Just letting y'all know if anyone wants to pick up a SVT for cheap like I did. Has a clean title too. If anyone is interested let me know.

Or if the stock header is bent back from a impact could also shift the whole exhaust back making it hit the axle easier.

Yeah, I've had that happen. Had to replace the entire exhaust system. That was on my first SVT though, not this one. I've been under this one several times, and nothing appears to be that bent out of shape.

Yeah then most likely it's the pipe, just have the O2 sensor spot moved to the side. Any exhaust shop should be able to do it pretty cheap. Just make sure that it goes in a spot that it won't hit anything.

That should be pretty easy. At least until I can get a new exhaust system. I've definitely gotten pretty good at changing that sensor out. Thanks for the tips, everyone!
