03/27/07 – Exhaust
Alright, first up are some crappy pictures of the exhaust. I couldn't get on a lift today, so this will have to do for now... Matt (lowly oil burner) @ HC welded the whole thing (Eviljay helped), the welds look wonderful. 100% stainless, with a stealth black stainless vibrant performance muffler. Yes, it's pretty low, but the springs I got for the rear are very stiff, so I doubt there will be any issues with it bottoming out. My Subaru exhaust is lower1, anyway, and I have no problems with that...
Building the exhaust was a bit of a pain. It has to actually go underneath the driveshaft, which sucks. It ultimately got a v-band clamp just inside the firewall. I never actually made any exhaust hangers for it, so I’ll need to make something when I start putting the car back together. Also, the exhaust outlet does not match up with the cutout on the Mtech1 valence, so I need to make some changes there as well.
(1) It turns out the Subaru had broken 2 hangers… That’s why!
