I thought about printing and casting, thats more work that I want though.

How would you secure the blocks to the trunk?

Well, I have to drill cross holes in the blocks to mill triangle shapes if I were doing it that way.

So I was thinking barrel nuts, like this. Straight outta ikea.



But if they were long and cast, not sure.

Looked at my schedule and added up my days off. Last day of work is the 21st.

Plan is to get an exhaust built, and get all the ABS stuff minus spindles installed. Monk said my package should be shipping soonish.

If the exhaust is getting built then the downpipe is coming off, and if the downpipe is coming off I might as well swap the clutch in.

Going to get some organic disc's made for the twin disc if I can't stand the metallic (likely) need to shop around for that. The couple places I called were gone at PRI.

deezums hi_im_sean cheapest ebay poly hangers? Everything is like $10+ which seems like a total rip off.

I still need to decide on a muffler. I think I'm gonna go fartcan, why not.

Valentine V1 **** the bed yesterday. Guess I'm going to send it in and see what they say. Its tweaking out and not doing the same thing twice, no errors or anything, so I can't even trouble shoot it.

I use cheap af rubbers wrapped in $1.00 hose clamps.

Poly gets hot and melt sags without hose clamps anyway, least I think I saw that on here, forget paying $10 for that.

Think a few of my hangers are even OE ones, wrapped in hoseclamp lol

Hmmm, i'll think about that.

Muffler ordered.

Luckily I live in driving distance of columbia mandrel bends. So I'm going to get the car jacked up and torn apart, measure for what I need, and then drive out and pick it all up. I already have some left over straight, just need to get some more bend and a little more straight.

2 v-bands. One at the axle, one after the flex pipe. I wish I could fit one on the downpipe, but last time we check and it wasn't happening.

Huh? You plan on solid mounting the exhaust to the car?

Interested to hear if you hear back on if anyone can make some organic disks for your clutch, I'll want replacement organic disks in the future for mine.

Also I would hit the contact surfaces of the FW, PP, spacers and clutch pucks with some 80 and higher grit sandpaper to get a scuffed friction surface. Helped clean up some of the hot spots I had, a tiny bit of oil allowed just enough slippage to glaze everything in places. I used a dual action sander for this.

It's a combination subframe brace and exhaust.

I lol'd. I just mean I'm going to have lots of hangers.

It should be easy. Talked to y8s and he had some made back in the day for his twin disc. Depends on how shitty the twin disc actually is. I've seen mentions of $75 a disc which would be ****.

Did you buy Ryan's twin disc?

Do you mean you used the dual action sander to rough up the friction surfaces? All of them? What grit did you go to.
