Cat-less dump and up pipe

Up pipe is a terrible job to do without a hoist; rusty bolts, bolt extractors, up pipe studs are expensivets/nuts. I would plan for a few days downtime just in case the worse happens

Found an exhaust leak at the bottom of the up-pipe, i just hope it isn't leaking at the top or flex joint too. Bought a thicker gasket and will see what i can do.

Whiteline Rear Sway Bar + Links arrived today as well as a wing and weather-shields.

Image

Also got some new gaskets so i can remove the avcs filters and maf cleaner, as my idle is a bit rough.
Won't install the wing until i can get it resprayed with the roof :drinks:

Image

Also rain beading 8-)

Installed the sway bar and end links.
Noticed something funny when i removed the exhaust for the install


Excuse to upgrade? :drinks:

Fixed some rattling in the rear due to missing screws for the interior panels.
Also one more squeak coming from passenger side dash, will investigate when i remove all this random unused amp cabling installed by the previous owner.
