Just a local stainless shop, I looked and they don't have a web site. There are 3 stainless shops in town, the one I go to has everything you'd ever think of. They supply a lot of food processing plants around here, all food is stainless.

It does cost a little more than steel, but it's ok. I got that pile and some other stuff for $170. I feel it was fair. Biggest price difference is 304 polished or 304 non polished finish.

Na, it looks really nice and is easy...but I've used my mig steel welder several times to weld stainless. It's not correct but nothing I do is. The welds will rust..otherwise I haven't found an issue with it.

Yo Ben!!! Good talking to you buddy!!! :-# :-# :-#

^^^^ You to Andy. I had another idea about radiator placement. A modified Hurst bumper up front might look OK.
Let me draw you a fucking picture!

I'm late with updates, exhaust is done. Engine cradle is done. Wiring is 1/2 done. Just need a radiator for final coolant line placement. Modifying the intake, the throttle body fits, but to out an air filter on it needs to change directions. It hits the gas tank wall.

Just showing the muffler I use.

I'll get a current update and pictures tonight or tomorrow night.

Thats the same exhaust that is on all of the subis he has done. They sound AWESOME, quiet at idle, loud when your on it. Nice deep tone.

Thanks guys. I keep using the same set up exhaust because it works, sounds good and seems to be the best set up for type 1,2,3. Bug, bus and square have all been fitted with that style. Space becomes an issue, with the in/out on the same side it's nice.

Radiator ordered. Using the same radiator I used in my old super. Acura integra 90-93. The size is all I wanted, 26.5" wide will fit between frame rails. The port location I'm going to cut and weld where I want them.

Guess I should update some picture, tomorrow! I'll get some of the intake flip. Bugorama was today in Sacramento, I'm tired! Hot as hell!
