    Next time I pull them I'm going to weld up the cracks, check their mating surface and replace the gaskets.

    Sorry guys, been busy. I do believe that I need to replace exhaust manifold gaskets due to the shitty Advance adapter headers cracking, warping and never staying tight.

    I'm not sure, I would have to look up the part number again to be sure. But I believe that it's out of an 89 mustang.

    So I haven't even moved her in almost 2 months. She's been setting in the garage. I picked up another muffler in hopes to quit it down. Also because I have a couple exhaust leaks and I am tired of smelling it in the cab. But I've been too busy and broke to do much of anything with it.

    Diesel anyone?

    If you do a 1.9tdi swap you can get a mechanical injection pump to eliminate the headache of the wiring and dash. A larger injector pump, turbo, injectors can be bought for under $2k. The adapter kit is roughly $1200. Then you just have to do the work.

    So I finally figured out how to complete the EGR delete. I followed this guy's instructions . It cleared my check engine light and fixed the surging idle. It's still idling low so I need to adjust that but she's running better! Hopefully my fuel mileage will improve. It's getting 10mpg now. I...

    Well I've been driving it around and played a little bit in my front pasture. She's running good and everything seems to be working well. My only worry is that the front drive shaft may max out and bind up at full flex. This is settin on flat ground.

    So I trimmed the passenger coil bucket and upmper track arm bracket. It rides and drives like a dream. I ordered a egr delete connector for the harness but it never showed up. Gonna contact the company and complain.

    Finally got around to leveling up the front. I Also raised it an inch to improve the track arm clearance. Tomorrow I'm gonna trim the bottom of the coil buckets and the upper track arm bracket. Had a little mishap yesterday. Took the wife out into the back pasture to do doughnuts and the...

    I think it's good. Anyone think it's a bad pattern?

    Yeah I agree. I haven't made time to work on it yet. We went to my wife's friend's so I could work on her jeep for her, this morning. So that messed up my whole day. Gonna start first thing in the morning.
