Default Scored an Exhaust

Well, I was planning on staying with the stock exhaust but fell into a deal. Picked up this http://www.flyinmiata.com/index.php?...umber=06-58200 plus a mated Flowmaster that he had a shop fab to fit his 99. It was on a guy's car for five months until he went bankrupt so he parted the car before the repo.

Picked everything up for $100.

So now, I guess I will be picking up a clutch and an IC to run 8 PSI or so.

You should try your stock clutch before you go with a new one.

At 6 my stock clutch handled it easily. At 10 I had to make sure the clutch was disengaged before getting on the gas. At 12 it doesnt matter, after 4k rpm it breaks loose.

Yeah, might as well. Doesn't cost anything. I'll probably be at 6 for a while until I decide how I want to do the IC on a 99 and lay out the $ for the clutch. Really need to do some suspension work, too.
