Default Extractor Hood & 3" Exhaust Whoring

Thanks to Scott and Brian for rigging up this deal, but I picked up my primed and ready for paint Erebuni hood this weekend from VA beach. Pending fitment, 150 dollar extractor hood ftw.

It'll fit, you just gonna need to trim it a bit though...and forget the grill in there as well, it'll grind down your valve cover

really? well im Dan too but i assume you are not talking about me
i do need to get some of those MMR mounts though, mine are starting to go out
I have about 1-2mm of clearance now, does the other dan have a 1.8 or 1.6, i think it makes a difference

What a deal! Where did you get that?

Hope it works better for you, than it would have for me. Nice to meet you Brad.

I'd like to see some pictures (detailed) once it's installed.

It's just a little shack in the back yard.

Hah he's being a bit modest. He has quite the little setup there in his backyard and it caught me completely off guard.

same size as mine, only angled. Pic doesn't show the clearances very well, a lot more room than mine actually.

Actually the exhaust does not rattle even the tiniest bit. The shop that did it (Whitey's Automotive) in Chantilly, did a fantastic job. They took off and milled my 3" DP Flange, added a flex section, added a transmission brace, heated the tranny tunnel are and added more clearance, and basically did one fantastic job. I'm taking my car back tomorrow morning since he offered to remove the seized axle problem and do the torsen swap while its up for VERY cheap.
