Default Just ordered full exhaust

This section is pretty dead....

Been talking to Abe for several weeks now on and off... great guy, answering my questions and providing details, thoughts etc.

But anyways I just ordered a manifold, downpipe with dump tube and exhaust from him, 3" of course.

I'll post up pics when I get it!

"Right now the wait is about 5-6 weeks, but it could be less in a month."

nice, I had my dp extended and 3" test pipe and catback made up and I dont think it took long at all. It should be coming in this week. I'd say it took right around a month and that includes me shipping him the half of a downpipe i received and him return shipping everything

Painting the manifold at the moment, purely to keep it from rusting.

Pretty sure the manifold is mild steel, I think he had to get it that way cuz some of the bends were tight, or something. I think it's brushed or something though yeah.

I didn't spray paint it in my kitchen hahahah. I did that outside and baked it in the oven, hence the kitchen pic. Used that VHT high temp paint stuff. I don't know if it will hold up that long to the temps it's going to see, I tried to follow the prep steps as close as possible so hopefully it will stick...did it purely to resist some surface rust, that's it. If it peels.. eh whatever just won't look as pretty!

Nice...I love Abe's work.

If I end up being a half-decent welder I'm going to bite his style hardcore.
