    Ordered a used TurboXS Turboback exhaust. Wrapped the downpipe in exhaust wrap and will be spraying it with Hi-Temp Silicone Coating, also have been blasting the downpipe area with PBBlaster in preperation in hopes that will make things easier. Then I will be in search of a tuner!

    TurboXS installed!! Sounds soooo good!!!


    New brakes!!! View attachment 3323
    Next up will be a 3.5" HTP intake and smaller battery box and then a tune. Then hopefully that is all for a little while... but probably not...

    Yeah it's an issue where the attachment links don't pull over I think.

    That never goes away. Actually it kinda went away when I got a rear mount them came back with the install of the transmission and passenger mounts. I wanted to step up to see the differences so I installed each one separately.

    Well, I will be building the motor sooner rather than later as the motor decided it was done with my shit and threw a rod. Nator CO will be pulling it by the end of the year and checking the damage then building from there.
