And im guessing he is single. So yeah he really does. I guess I was relating it to myself. I work 10hrs 6 days a week and I have 2 kids. So its hard for me to get all the stuff I want to do to my car.

All done. it's hanging really low and the guy was pretty much an idiot. Was not worth the $316, would not do again. It's pretty quiet and I don't think it pulls as hard as steve's but i'll line up with him and see.

quit your whining
http://s15.photobucket.com/albums/a3...opy%20exhaust/

The oil spots are from when i had the blue car. this car doesn't leak anything. If I go any lower my muffler will ride the ground. I already hit it more than steve hits his exhaust, mine is placed so terribly.

One question... why didn't you do the swap in the blue car? And did you run the same exhaust steve has?

The rear subframe on the blue car went bad, driveshaft hitting gas tank because i failed to put a differential bolt in. all the torque hitting it over time from slamming gears twisted the subframe. This car is not much better, i found so many issues with it that were hidden. Yeah i am pretty much running steve's exhaust, i have a magnaflow and he has a borla. my y pipe is also haggardly made. The guy at the exhaust shop did absolutely nothing i told him to do, so i'm going to try and get him to fix it.

Good choice on tryin to get your exhaust fixed, that certainly didn't look like $300+ worth of work!

If this current car is sketchy, why not wait until you find a better donor car for all this work you're doing? or is this car fixable yet?

Yeah I made mine myself and I'm not real happy with it I didn't make it while I had the car cause my boss wouldn't let me bring it into work. But gl with it.

it's not sketchy to where it will affect every day driving. just random things like a crack in the rad support and the passenger wheel well being cut out and replaced. just tedious little things.
