good call. might be time to look for a stainless steel exhaust extension : ) (or suck it up and go aluminum)

not too sure how well i'd be able to coat the insides of it, unless it was something I dipped the whole assembly into.
I may be wrong, but I do believe that you were either in park or neutral while you were revving the motor... Correct? That will cause next to no flex of the engine mounts because the only force you have is the centrifugal force of the rotating mass in the engine. When you put it in drive and hold the brake, as willwren displayed, the torque of the engine is transmitted to the frame and tries to twist the engine off it'* mounts.

Go to Autozone and find the plastic package with the bright aluminum pipe. Has a rubber coupler in there too (with a diameter spacer). Ask to take it out to your car and overlay it. That'* what we did for DrJay last weekend, only we overlaid it on my ADTR, which was nice.

Aluminized pipe will solve part of your problem, except for the cut ends and any holes for the IAT you may need to drill.

meh... would have done that if I could have... my local AZ doesn't carry it stock. I'm going for the 4750, which you've mentioned has the IAT hole in it already, so I'm pretty sure I just need a good old pipe. This weekend i'll be up by theJMFC... he'* got a few autozones up there I can check out. one of them is a 24 hour location, and I've seen enough ricers around there to hope that they'll have it in stock.

still looking for other options though

that'* the current project... looking around there a lot. but looking more into intercooler piping, really... cheaper when they think its for another part of the car yup, I found a few places selling polished 3" OD aluminum for about 10 bucks... just need to try to find one that'll work out...
