Beautiful car, man. That exhaust is intriguing...
Did you buy your own 2.5" tubing?Everything is stock up until the cat. Past the cat I have the RB resonated PP midpipe bolted on, and then RB sells a universal muffler (here) that I had welded on after the resonator. From there it's just a shiny double tip. Everything flows really well, but it's pretty quiet, almost too quiet. That's why I'm taking out the resonator to try and liven it up a bit.
Wouldn't surprise me if the stock NB pipe would have to be cut up a bit, too, because the stock NB exhaust is basically an axle-back.Ah whoops, forgot to mention I took the car down to my local muffler guy and he did all the welding, cutting, and tubing etcetera. Because of the way the muffler needed to be positioned under the car, he had to cut off the second flange and weld some piping straight between the resonator and the muffler.
I'll look into it. ThanksDon't mean to sound snarky, but...
I can help to clarify anything of course.
With OEM housings you can just swap them out and add a resistor in the OEM flasher. I recommend JDM ASTAR bulbs.
I don't know of anyone doing it before is the main concern. You're talking about the area where stuff gets sucked in to the engine, so ingestion is always going to be a concern to me.What about the RTV is concerning to you? I ask because I haven't thought about it since it has since then moved down to near the bottom of the to-do list.
That's weird...I used the same old NGK blues I'd used before. Then again, that was over a decade ago now eek so there might be some selective memory going on there.That's pretty much what I did - drilled two holes, mounted a flat stock piece of metal, and then bolted the coil pack to that. Still needed about 2" of extra wire per plug though.
What determined the coil pack's final placement for me was the lower mounting bolt (on the head). Of course, if you have a 1.6, we're comparing apples and oranges because the 1.8 has its CAS (and therefore the coil pack mount) on opposite sides of the engine.I probably could have done that whole "measuring" thing before I mounted the coil pack too, lol. I mounted it to get the best clearance without thinking of the plug wires.
