Is it possible that I'm more anxious to hear the new exhaust completed than you are?
What bugged you about the stainless tip? Just the angle? If so, that local shop will probably drop it on the chop saw for free next time you take them a welding project.
The angle of the black PCed one and the size of it bugged me a bit. I’m going with the SS rolled edged tip one. It will look a little cleaner and less aggressive IMO. Im just waiting on a good day to go have it all welded up.
After almost 8 months of procrastination on hooking my A/C up, I finally did it. When I first pulled my engine last October I broke a tensioner pulley piece that attaches to the tightening bolt. Then after a quick search and rescue Garrett (equinox92) came to the rescue and hooked me up with a replacement tensioner bracket assembly
It was an easy install with only running into one little problem which I will explain later.
This was how Ive been running around for the past 8 months
Left is the bracket Garrett sent me, right is the broken one
Small problem. I wanted to reuse my plastic (lighter) pulley instead of the steel one off of the older model. Everything fit perfect EXCEPT that the bearing that housed in the plastic wheel is just a tad smaller. So in effect I couldnt use the "unbroken" part that I needed. I just simply swapped the metal wheel over to my bracket.
This "dry lube" does wonders escpecially to parts that you do not want to keep greasy.
Everything assembled and ready to go back in.
...and finally back to normal and just in time too because we are expecting some hot weather soon.
Wow, dont you just love googlemaps? This picture was taken in 2008 and it shows the first car I built (1989 Isuzu Impulse) and my Impreza before I lowered it. God I miss her sometimes. She would have been a great track car only if I had the time to devote to her.
