    let me start by saying that this is the first time I've ever received a package that didn't actually have a package, what you see is exactly how they shipped, no box just taped on packing slips...


    The cats are both just a little bit smaller, but overall everything looks like it should line up pretty much how it already was, I'll report back with how well they fit upon install but so far they look pretty good...[​IMG]

    That is strange. I only ordered maybe one that was preassembled. The rest were in parts to assemble but both were in packaging with some sort of packing materials. Let's see how it works. Good luck with install and test!

    Today I started installation and ran into a hiccup, the overall length is about an inch too short and the angles of header mounts were off a little bit...


    My fix was I cut it in half in the middle and bolt them on separately and I will now mark them and install a welded on sleeve to get the angles and length I need...


    More tomorrow or wednesday

    Hi Ksoder, I believe you’re the new owner of my old SHO. I sold it to a guy who lived around Cactus and 40th street, and he destroyed it with spray paint. It has around 122k miles?

    We’ve gotta meet up or something. I’d love to see how my old SHO is doing. What are your plans with her? Just a daily driver?

    Yep, just a fun daily driver. I've been battling emissions as you can tell, but once emissions are done in needs new struts, new. motor mounts, and I'm going to be replacing a lot of body panels with Factory ones to get rid of that spray paint. Once it's street legal id be down to meet sometime if youd like

    I’d be down. Where are you getting the body panels from? There was a 92 SHO in the junkyard on Buckeye and 35th ave, but it’s been scrapped. Glad to see it’s got a loving owner after the spray paint guy.

    Again
    I LOVE this forum.
    Oh, you got my ex girlfriend, cool I’d love to see her.
    There is so much more respect for people when they come in and they’re willing to cut things apart and get the job done knuckles dirty and bleeding.
    Best of luck solving this and keeping another one alive.

    Congrats from one who has been there, Greg - I was amazed to find when all is correct how well they run - no odor no smoke - sounds like rain is forecast for the drive up to Radwood Sat morning but it will be fun nonetheless :)
