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.Scott SainParticipantJune 7, 2020 at 2:40 pmPost count: 265
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.FranzKeymasterJune 8, 2020 at 7:05 amPost count: 3535
Our friend Matt was showing his 3 piece billet 16” Fuchs. Looked great on this car. 👍FranzKeymasterJune 8, 2020 at 7:08 amPost count: 3535
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.FranzKeymasterJune 8, 2020 at 8:33 pmPost count: 3535
New glass installed and looking like perfection next to the polished paint.Baja MarkParticipantJune 9, 2020 at 5:29 amPost count: 421

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?dan.mastroParticipantJune 9, 2020 at 12:56 pmPost count: 19
Franz, I just picked up that the door handles are missing. What’s up?FranzKeymasterJune 9, 2020 at 1:48 pmPost count: 3535
Had them off for buffing. Also waiting for passenger handle to come back from re-chroming.FranzKeymasterJune 12, 2020 at 3:40 pmPost count: 3535
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.WAY2COOLParticipantJune 12, 2020 at 10:16 pmPost count: 215
