    Thanks Josh. Welding ti is fun. Easier than stainless or aluminum.

    I had to order more loose radius bends and a chunk of strait today. I wanted to keep the muffler mounted high so that it would have a cool looking tail pipe. Plus, more bends = better sound.

    Also mounted the muffler with a billet spacer and rubber straps.

    Yeah Scott, it has a v band at the turbo and a slip joint it the muffler.

    Dan something you might keep an eye on is your oil pressure on hard pulls. I had that thin sump and could not keep oil pressure on launches. Our only fix was the bigger 4 quart sump. I’ve heard of other people having the same issue recently.

    Our friend Matt was showing his 3 piece billet 16” Fuchs. Looked great on this car. 👍

    Swapping door glass and 1/4 glass today. More exhaust fabrication parts should be here Wednesday. After the exhaust is welded, I have to turn the boost down, then it’s ready to ship home.

    Sooo yeah, finished by the weekend is my goal.

    New glass installed and looking like perfection next to the polished paint.

    Looking great Franz!!  Weather in the Northeast has been fabulous, so missing the car these days.  It will be home soon enough.

    Scott, thank you for the heads up.  I have not had that issue yet, but you never know.  Does the oil capacity in the two oil coolers help in this situation?

    Franz, I just picked up that the door handles are missing.  What’s up?

    Had them off for buffing. Also waiting for passenger handle to come back from re-chroming.

    Ticon came through with some more pie cuts of the loose radius variety. I already have them fit to the muffler. Almost ready to weld.

    The chrome came in today too.
