I am waiting to get my car in the shop so I can pull the downpipe out to get good measurements in back of the motor, I'm not sure about 95naSTA.

My project isn't dead.

33" long goodness.











I have to make a minor tweak to the front header and order: pipe and flex for the x-over, small flex for after the Y, and probably something else I can't remember right now.

I just want to hear it without dampening the sound with cat/resonator/mufflers. Great job shaping up there Trent. And pleeeeeeeease post a sound clip before you tame that monster piping.

I'll probably have to pull the engine forward or something to get the rear header in. I'm putting a new engine/trans in anyway so that'* no biggie.

I'm not sure how far Trent is with his.

I'll have a cutout behind the Y so no problem getting a sound clip after it'* all done.

Well, Since I have decided to go turbo instead of */C I am still trying to figure how to get a equal length header from the back of the motor to the front and have it meet up with the front to dump into a divided T4 collector. If I can get it all set up with a nice twin scroll turbo it should help spool by about ~400RPM'*
