Exhaust System. / Re: Looking to Straight pipe. How should I do this?
« Last post by RallyEagle on Yesterday at 07:36:00 PM »
I too will find this out soon. No cats installed now on the v8. It needs a complete exhaust system so off it will go to a custom shop and I'll find out what they can and can not do.

Follow up...  One shop said since if it is a race car and no plates, then the exhaust can be whatever the owner wants.  If plated, then they have to follow the rules for the year, make and model.  Another shop said similar story.  So around here, if the car is suppose to have a CAT, then a CAT has to be there or they place one in.

I'll probably be able to contribute to this thread soon since I need a complete exhaust system. I've always done my own work but of course can't get the OTC parts anymore. I don't believe a shop will be able to make accurate parts from my old parts if I bring them in which I would prefer. They will need the car but it has been my impression that a shop will replace what is on the car that you bring to them. Mine are not factory stock. A shop will not remove a Cat. for you but if there isn't one there they can replace what is there. I've been that route before but I'll soon find out again and/or possibly check out a few shops.

Project Cars / Re: RallyEagle's 82 SX4 Rally car rebuild

No doubt. It's a machine.  I drove it this morning while the road were still frozen to avoid the mud and she screams.  3000 rpm at 50 mph if I believe the speedo.  Taller tires might now be in my future.  From 0-35, it rides up the road.  Still have fix exhaust and touch up the paint....the disco colors are, well, noxious.

LIt sounds like a good project.  I have some left over parts and with my 4:10 riffs, I might up size my like new tires. Let me know if you are interested. There are 5.

Sounds like you have a great car to start with.  Just work on it one bit at a time and you'll get there eventually.  Keep us posted, and we love pictures!

Thanks for the thread. Lots of great pictures.
On the trouble posting. I know there is a size limit for photos. 1MB, I think there is also a limit with overall data. I just haven’t found it yet. I need a 36hr day.

Thanks for giving us the history of your project.  Maybe with a little luck you'll end up with a T5 in it  ;)

New shifter for 4wd.  Not pretty, but it works fantastic!




Chasing a motorcycle in Oklahoma, very flat and those clouds turned to mud.



This is somewhere in Colorado, rest break.



Tweaking the timing became a daily chore.  Up to 12,000ft then back down to about 6,000 the next minute.



I can't even remember what the problem was here, but my buddies love to take these pictures.



Holy cow, look at this scenery!



Made it to the top of the world!  I think this is Cinnamon Pass, Colorado.



The bikes had a hard time staying vertical.  The Eagle never tipped over, thank god.



Try doing this for 2000 miles!  We rode these vehicles HARD.




This is my favorite shot, seems like we are on another planet.



A new sticker for every state we finished.  2019 will be Utah, Idaho, and Oregon.



The Eagle ended up being the pack mule for the group, we had to get all the extra weight off the bikes to help the riders endure.



All stored and ready for the big finish in 2019!
