Its obviously an i, the rad hose routing is standard for an 1987... they changed it in late 1987. You can also tell its not an e from some of the hose routing off the throttle body.

easiest way to tell if its an I or e is check out the intake plenum, its blocked off instead of having the cold start valve, there for its an I, do some research before you throw out facts

Nice looking exhaust Dan, that should help it drive better... I'll bet it sounds better than with none (even thought that sounded mean as hell).
Did you get that ignition problem taken care of?

smaller pipes are louder...bigger ones will be deeper...he probably wouldn't even need a muffler

care to elaborate on that? ....thats contrary to every law of fluid and thermal dynamics that i have read.

simply:

small pipe = restriction
restriction = backpressre
backpressure = quiet.


unless theres something i dont know about i dont see how a large pipe can make the exhaust more quiet? ...turbo cars with a downpipe only are often quieter than a NA built car with a full exhaust ans some sort of muffler simply because of the backpressure created by the exhaust housing of the turbo(s)

sound waves expand, refract and mix in a muffler, thats what makes a muffler work. but when no mufflers are present, the sound waves dont expand, refract or mix. anytime you increase the backpressure of a engine, not only is the exhaust gas wave more quiet, the engine itself is more quiet as well. if im wrong here, chime in.

Here are pictures of the wheels. I apologize for the high ride height, as I am getting ready to pass a vehicle inspection.
