Ok, if anybody remembers my post a while back i ordered a uppipe and downpipe off ebay. It was like 129.99 b4 shipping. Well got in tin the mail today and couldnt wait took 4 hours to finish. The worst part was gettin the uppipe out of the engine compartment.
But i finally got it all off and out and stated puttin the uppipe in and it fit perfect! Came with gaskets for that and the donut gasket for the rear but no turbo gasket for the uppipe. and the uppipe fit perfect too i was amazed even the hanger. it rubs the hose on the firewall tho gonna hav to fix that.
Glad everything worked out for you. I believe you are talking about the A/C drain hose on the firewall touching the downpipe. If you've driven it for any amount of time, its probably melted. I cut about half off mine so it wouldn't touch anymore.
No cutting of anything believe it or not i was very surprised as i stated in the first post. yeah i took it down the road and when i got back you would think i just smoked the tires off because of the hose burnin. So i ziptied it back out of the way.
As far as hp? well, it spools alot faster way more torque in first and second gear. first will set u in the seat pretty good. If your turnin at all it will roast the front tire off.
And the turbo is real loud inside the car. Also i dont know what the deal is but it almost sounds like a miss at low rpm's when your in 5th cruisin around 45mph and u give it gas the turbo sounds like its flutterin. Any ideas?
i found this obx muffler on ebay for 47 bucks with 15 dollar shipping. you i reall need to remove the resonater in front of the axle? How much diff could it make?
and as for the brand, the sell was reddoggmotorsports i think.
