Default Yesterday'* salvage yard finds

Stopped at a yard I haven't been to in about a year to see if they had manifolds. They had a rear in really nice shape so I got that, and I found a 92-93 SC cover with no broken clips, and as I was about to pay the guy asks "Aren't you the guy who was looking for an air hose?" I was kinda confused, thinking vacuum lines, when he reaches under the counter and pulls out a Pontiac Accessory kit hose (hose only -they didn't have a bag or any of the other contents).
So for $35 I got the whole package.
Went to another yard and found a mint like new rear manifold that they had listed as a front. Asking price on that was only $25, but I passed since I had already got a decent one.
This morning I stopped at a third yard and found a excellent crack-free front manifold and crossover in a 1994 SE with only 73k on it. Walked out with that for $25.

Now I just need to get myself a 4" pipe and new 4" K&N cone and with the ported exhaust mani'* I should be flowing about the maximum capabilities of the heads, which will be getting rebuilt and ported soon enough also along with the LIM. TB will get a very light porting.

Downpipe very restrictive. Do you have a series 2? If so then it has to be off a 1995 (the rear) if not it will not bolt to your downpipe.
