Oh, and as far as the BOV, I had hoped to find a turbo block to drop in there but nothing so far :-/

 

though, a Back-side turbo did tickle my fancy..

Up on the car, right before tacking the welds and finishing it up, no, the bundgee coard is NOT sticking around, i did install a hanger - top left where the OE one would be ;-)

I dont know what i think of the tail-end. I never did like being able to see a muffler. thoughts?



It is very quiet in the cab now.. a much nicer rumble with the 2.5" pipe

I was trying for a bit tucked up but somewhere between the tack welds and pulling it down to finish it kinda shifted. That, and it already kinda sat funky up there. the angle going under the axles was kinda weird and would've rubbed. I might pull it back down and attempt to bend the angle a bit and see where that gets me. I also dont like the stupid angle that most 'roo's (and stupid hondas) do with it all cocked upword. Granted, i dont have a fart can.. but still not fond of being able to see the muffler.

yea, it will shift.

 

when i did the exhaust on the RX, i had everything super tight, pulled it down and welded it, now i have plenty of clearance everywhere EXCEPT the rear hanger, which it now smacks so i have to jump under there and cut it.

 

i'm definatly a fan of things being tucked up.

dang! wish my welds looked that good! haha! I imagine my technique would be better if i welded more - Meh :-/

Anyway, got back under there to patch up a few leaks that i saw earlier. Some condensation was leaking through the welds. I also got the muffler to go up a bit higher and painted the exhaust black - maybe it would bug me less if i didnt see it so easy.

*giggle* i know.

though, before I realized it was so bright, i had thought about maybe tinting the plastic going for that "new-age" dark look.

here's how it turned out looking like

Resistors young patawon

Yep... 

 

If you installed LED Bulbs instead the incandescent T-10 and T-5 Behind the instrument cluster, you'll need to install a single Resistor Behind the the Power Input (12V +) just before it accesses the Dimmer Knob.

 

Kind Regards.

I'm thinking i'm sitting a bit higher on the front :-/ Thinking in need to bring the back up too *teeeheeehee* (the axles arent really angled much on the rears). The rear tophats on the OBW struts i have dont come off for some reason. I was trying to put the tophats that had my "lift" done, i couldnt get the OBW tophats off.. and i threw away the spring tops from my old Impy struts :-/
