Drove it right in on the rack, will be picking it up after work. I'm grinning like a little kid just thinking about it.

Picked up a spare headlight pair and a strut tower brace for $20 off FB marketplace.

I will agree with all of this! Hate to say it but the Prochamber sounds like ASS when it begins to deteriorate after 14+ years! My favorite mid pipe of all time and they’re no longer being produced.
LOL this is true. Same applies to flowmasters.

On my bassani setup its strange that the O/R X pipe is the best sounding one.. O/R prochamber just didnt do it.. honestly couldnt believe it.. never tried an OR H though but i imagine that to wouldnt fly

Flowdisasters lol

I had a date end abruptly many years ago because a two chamber decided to shit it’s guts en route. The resulting drone was UNBELIEVABLE.

Didn’t like that chick anyway.

Picked the car up after work and man! I freaking love it. I was always a bit scared of xpipes due to the supposed rasp, but there's none with this one. I don't know if it is because of the pushrod motor or the Borla mufflers, but there's no rasp at all. It sounds downright angry under throttle - too bad there isn't any bite to back up the bark! The craziest thing is that it is quieter while cruising than before, which totally surprised me. The exhaust that was there before was pretty hacked up, he cleaned all that up for me while he was at it.

The new setup is catless BBK xpipe to Borla ProXS mufflers to 3" tailpipes. I'll see if I can get a sound clip done up.

Excellent!!

The modular engines have an exhaust note that is inherently raspy due to the OHC design. They all seem to have a signature “trumpet” effect somewhere between 2200-2500 RPMs.

Not so much today, but the last week or so, coil overs, wheels mounted, brakes, engine set in, grille and lower spoiler.

messed with pulling the front sway bar off. have new bar brackets to put on and fought with the ******. those damn bolts hanging from the frame holding the bar links on. well, they have a clip and one of them gave up and let the bolt turn with the nut. wasted 30 minutes at least trying to get the thing off. I'm so tired of old bolts and shit on these things. this is my last sn95 that I mess with. But I did get the new front BMR control arms on. Decided to pull the sway bar and paint it since everything else is new and shiny.

Got the AC working again in this ugly bitch! With this Texas heat you can’t go without AC. I really need to upgrade the radio and speakers in this thing, I can’t believe I use the think the Mach system sounded good 64B1B497-177C-46AC-8917-A0FDFEAC2400.jpeg

Yesterday, I really tested the battery! Put it on a charger and finally got it back to full charge. Don't know what the problem was...but after putting it back in...Opal started immediately! Maybe it was heat related. I'm not going to waste time worrying about it. The new White Gauges look so much better! I am a lucky guy!
