Nice welding on the downpipe! Glad you're pleased with the exhaust. They are fantastically quiet for a sport system until you get the revs up, like any proper road car exhaust should be.

Long time no post...post

Did a few things to my platinum over the weekend. New motor mounts and axles.

Motor mounts went in easy and I was surprised at how much it raised the engine off the subframe.

Now the axles...I had been holding out for a set of OEM ones that I could re-grease and boot but I could never
find a good set at the local pick and pulls but I finally caved in and bought a set from Oreilly's. :facepalm:
Life time warranty...right? Lol. Lets see how long the last.

The lengths were correct and the splines were rather nicely machined...but the axle diameter on the passenger side was a little smaller.



Stock:



Aftermarket:



I painted the exposed surfaces with satin black rust oleum and installed.

Took it for a drive and no vibrations at highway speed ore weird noises. Lets see how they do.


I also made a downpipe for a local here and extended the offer to the Facebook market to see if there was interest.
Got a few orders knocked out and I'll ship them this week.

Anybody ever seen a manifold like this? Resembles a "Japanifold" but without the cast markings of one. Maybe it's a 1st gen that has been ported? But, the part numbers are not the same...

I am keeping my eye out for one at the wrecking yards. I have and S60 manifold on it now but I would like to try out a new sound. Lol.
