    They tucked it in there nicely. It is too bad you had all the extra expense. I guess that's the cost of doing R&D sometimes. On to new projects now

    Might I suggest updating the first post to also request tire size along with your wheel specs (if known). Maybe if you're lowered too

    I just hit the strut housings with the flapper wheel on my grinder until they slid on. I did each side even and haven't had any problems. It really didn't look like I was going to gain what I needed...

    I am using the Hawk street pads (HPS). The race pads really should only be used on the track because they are designed to work in optimal heat ranges. Too cold or too hot and you lose braking...

    Looks good Arne! Nice work

    Exploring ideas sometimes turn into more work than we wanted but I think the end product looks good. Not many are going to have an exhaust like yours.

    My understanding of headers is the 4 into 1, 6 into 1, and long tube V8 headers make their best power up top. The 6-2-1 or other tri-y designs improve torque and mid-range but don't see the same...

    I basically had a clone of the MSA exhaust on my car since last summer. My old Clifford header, 2.5" pipe to Summit glass pack, out to a 2.5" in/out Magnaflow. It sounded great, wasn't obnoxious, and...

    2.5" should be plenty on a NA L24/L28. The car/exhaust you are using for an example looks to have a custom fabricated Stainless exhaust. The TIG weld is visible just under the car. Full stainless can...

    Spray the back end of the muffler flat black when it's done and the resonated tips will POP. I think it will look and sound great. I was toying with this idea for a long time. I think I even know...

    I would say they are certainly predictable choices but in many cases, they fit the look of the car. Wheel choices are very personal and mostly we buy what like on the car. You could almost compare it...

    215 on a 9.5 is super stretched. I've seen 215's on a 9 but normally see 225 or 235 on a 9.5 and 10" wide rim. We're talking stretched tires here not normal fits.

    I'm probably going to echo some comments but here's my take.

    #1 verify all your parts are torqued
    #2 verify no movement of inner tie rods
    #3 inspect the wheel bearings
    #4 verify wheel balance...

    Am I reading that correctly? You really picked up 20 rwkw from the header+exhaust? 60 to 80kw? (80 -107 hp) Is it the 65kw (87hp) line?

    I remember doing my header/exhaust and remember the...

    Yeah that's partly why I like them so much. I can rotate them properly. I believe the 18s I have are a V rated tire with a good tread life warranty... 45k? can't remember but that's plenty for me...

    I did just that with my exhaust when I made my tip. I centered it visually and tacked it straight to the muffler. Honestly once it's welded you won't need to worry about a snug fit. Once there's a...
