I know Pete already said this twice - but it's worth repeating a third time.

Just bolt the wheels on tight after you get the brakes upgraded, Digger

Got my new exhaust from Vintagespeed in today:




It's the 42mm hidden set-up for lowered busses. I met Mr. Lee last year at Winterjam and was very impressed by his workmanship. His exhaust systems are all stainless and each one is hand built. Looks like I have two projects to finish now........... Embarassed

Thanks, I will update with pics on the install. He mocks these up right on an engine as he builds them, so I don't anticipate any trouble with the fit..... Cool

Got the Vintagespeed header & exhaust installed this afternoon. Cool The install went as planned and everything fit together with no tweaking!! Wink The tail pipe just peaks out from under the bumper and it has a nice mellow sound. It feels like I gained some performance and it is alot smoother accelerating and running thru the gears, but I would need to dyno it again to be sure. Anyway, here's some pics:

That would be cool! Cool We already have a base line established, so it would be interesting to see what effect (if any) the 42mm header has on this engine/carb combo..... Question
