Thanks. Definitely not showroom quality, but functional and appropriate for a 17 year old car with 400K+ on the odometer.

Oh, and I did replace the rear brakes, fix the plate light, got the new tires put on, etc. Also pulled the headpipe to cut out the rusted pipe and weld a new one in:

Don't make too much fun of my welding. That's 2-1/2" pipe welded onto the converter shell, and I have an adapter clamped on to bring it down to the midpipe diameter at the other end.

Funny thing happened - somehow all of the ceramic guts in the converter magically disappeared while I had that pipe off. I think the backpressure fairies must have taken it on me. Huh. Imagine that.

Mufflerectomy is next, I have been focusing on achieving this:

All legal for another 11 months!

I'm an amateur radio operator, as is my wife. We helped provide emergency communications for the foot race up the Mt. Washington Auto Road today and stopped on the Kanc for a photo op on the way home. On the Auto Road, we were stationed just above the 5,000' ASL mark.
Turbocharged engines love elevation.

Mufflers are so overrated.



Super easy, and came out just about perfect with off the shelf parts and pieces.



Nice deep tone and surprisingly quiet. It sounds like I have a little jet engine behind me at idle, though.
