any more pics of your compost heap?
That cold side IC pipe looks like a fun ride. Was there any scientific point behind that long *** bov pipe? or just filling the void left by the A:W IC? :gay:

Yeah, I was going to ask why not just keep going right out the mouth of the front bumper, throw a 90 on it and add about a foot in straight piping, then affix one of those little flapper doors to the top of the stack so rain water doesn't get in...like a big-rig's exhaust stack

You'd have to ask the designer. He goes by the name Corky Bell.

by the way, that bling bling silver powder coat is already jacked. You can see where I tried to clean it up on that bov dick how it's all washed out and pale gray instead of chrome-ish.

highly not recommended. I guess winter project is yanking all the hot side pipes and having them silver ceramic coated.

oh **** almost forgot. for all of you who think I fab exhausts all day long....

My Discard Pile:






Lets see, there's a full roadstersport + racing beat head-to-tip setup, a 2.5-3" downpipe, random parts of a 3" midpipe, UGLY 3-bolt flanges, a 3" muffler, stock 2001 midpipe and manifold, and some leftover 4" pipe from my new intake. and god knows what else.

Here's the exhaust that's on the car now (muffler + midpipe, old photo)

Did you notice a difference in underhood temps with that turbo blanket? Was it dramatic?
