Looking good. Coming along great.



+1. I would get that removed asap.
How do you remove the ebd? I have no idea where to even look? And will the abs still work fine? Or will it be affected?

Oh I thought it was the electronic brake distribution. I'm used to that being what EBD is. Which bracket is it?

If you look at this picture, you will see that bracket going across right under the exhaust. Remove that & just put the bolts back in their place.

I ended up removing that bracket after I took that picture. My bad about the abs comment. I'm used to ebd standing for electronic brake distribution. I feel like an idiot now -_- haha

Looks great! Everyone was just making sure you didn't feel the wrath of the Exhaust Bracket of Death. There have been several people who had a high center event on a driveway or speed-bump that has pushed it into the exhaust which then gets pushed into the prop shaft wreaking havoc.

I removed it after I bottomed out leaving a restaraunt in hopatcong. Luckily I was going 2 miles an hour so I removed it haha. And yes being a tech saved me ALOT of money for labor. And it's a great hobby and amazing to have your own tools and access to a lift all the time

Lower it yes. As for the cat, nahhh.
If you ever get pulled over just make sure you shut your car off lol
i got pulled over last week and as soon as i stopped i shut off my car and prayed the smell would go away before the cop came to the car haha

Nice BOX! Lol, where do you work? The colors of the walls are very similar to where I am. It's nice to see a tech that has an R, most of my guys have giant trucks or JDM rice burners. Good looking R btw.
