It's going out the drivers side facing sideways. So I can see flames....

Its actually cut off bit of a 180. So technically not a cheater bend. Even though the cut is kind of ugly and its not perfect.

18psi doesn't come visit anymore. I'm too ADD for him.

I'm a little stumped on a hanger for the drivers side exit exhaust. But something will come to me. I still need to make a bunch of hangers. And get new rubber and hose clamps. And then backpurge and weld the whole thing.

theres a hanger there I though? I've got one on there right at the back of the subframe or something, unless the NB doesnt have that.

There is one right in the middle, but not out back by the bumper.

I have a bit of stainless plate. Probably going to bolt it to the tow hook holder things and then weld a bit of rod to that. Just hard to picture in my head. And hard to get all up in there.

I know what you're talking about. The FM dual exhaust comes with a piece like that. I dont think you need it though. I have the hanger right at the back of the subframe and its holding up my heavy *** borla, it only bangs against stuff when I corner over like 1.3g.

Thats the plan. Did you weld it to the car? Or bolt it on somehow.

I unbolted the tow hook, cut the **** out of it and welded my hanger onto that. It bolts up in there easy enough. I had to cut it for the other flat mounting tow hook thing.

Its going straight out the drivers side, and is really close to the hitch and bumper, so I need it secured.

Trailer hitch replaces tow hook. And I need the hanger on the outside. I might just pull the bumper and weld something on up there.

Aha! Thats the trunk i've been staring at this whole time. I'll just bolt the stainless plate to that, weld some rod on and make a hanger for the muffler.

Bam.

I hope you're not planning on doing any 90 db days at Laguna.

There's a v-band right before the axle. I'll do a muffler version at some point.

Also, FWIW the advance auto axles are about a 1/16th of an inch thicker than stock.

Not worth the gas on the theoretical "performance gain" in my opinion. Only reason to justify it would be for strength and you're not going to have any problems with that under the usage conditions.

Alright, Bens cat is too big. I need something a lot shorter. Suggestions on a short 3" cat?

Doesn't have to be high performance or anything, its just for emissions.
