Also, if it's only your exhaust manifolds, it means your 02 sensor isn't plugged in? that could affect it too...

yeah people have been telling me the o2 sensor would have a big factor in it as well as having no back pressure with just manifold. i will still check the cams to make sure they are squared up, thanks again peeeeps

havent been working much, got a bit of a back injury lol, i did get my gauges wired up, oil feed and return for turbo is set up as well as oil pressure switch for ma gauge. initial tunning gave me a quick quote of 600 bucks for a complete exhaust. i already have a cat and muffler. so if anyone has any other places that might do goood work for a good price let me know!!

Looks good dude! We need to get a welder going on, with some tri-mix gas, so we can weld up stainless exhausts for our cars!

If things weren't crazy for me, we could do it at my place but that's not likely to happen in the next two months with the move. I only have autogas though so you'd have to do mild steel. You can get it at Malberg though for cheeep.

FYI - If you leave that pressure sender there its going to crack and fail due to the vibrations. You're better off running a remote line and strapping it to the chassis somewhere.

Looks great though - your progress is awesome Keep it up!

For the exhaust - go see Dan's muffler in Metcalfe - he does good work cheap!

I haven't seen it happen personally, but the installation instructions (i actually read them - crazy right?) warned about it.

Also, all the race cars I've seen have it remotely mounted so I figure there may be some truth to it!
