More progress! With the engine in the bay and headers mounted, next on the list was the exhaust.
With the tip done, he laid out the rest of the exhaust and got it tacked up. The exhaust was built as a balance of what’s needed and what will work. Also budget comes into play bit. The tips are stainless for the bling factor but the rest was done in mild. All stainless is cool but expensive. Mild steel will outlast the intended life of the exhaust. Oh and again, this is just the test car. The swap kit headers and y-pipe will be built with the goal of being able to use a regular cat-back exhaust.
G-man approves giving it his best JDM peace stamp of approval.
And mounted on the car – really stoked on the result!
