Cheap Insurance

I can't tell if these things are badass or hokey
Regardless they are cheap insurance for the engine
I think I like them

I'm Free Flowin

Time to fix my jacked up exhaust

Crappy Crush bend

Cut it out!

Look at that POS

Time to copy with mandrel bend

Welding Required

Cut and tacked

Welded up

Bam! Done!

Muffler is a bit crooked now & rubs rear valance
I'll have to fix that somehow

New Toys

I got plans for this seat. 
Stupid Blogger auto-rotated image & I don't know how to fix

 Subaru R180 27 spline to datsun 240z halfshaft adapters

 2006 STI 3.54 R180 LSD
Change the input flange and it's a direct bolt in
as long as you have the Beta Motorsports half shaft adapters
 Adapters & LSD mated up

Up close and personal

Seller claimed that LSD is 3.9
 But I know for a fact 2006 STIs came with a 3.54 rear r180
The ratio of the center diff in the STI theoretically made the rear diff a 3.9
Without the center diff, the r180 is a 3.54

I currently have a 4.11 open r180 out of a L20 Fairlady Z 2+2
With the new engine, I'm in and out of the power band in no time
Im hoping this STI r180 with the lower ratio will keep me in the power longer
speed me up in the long run
Regardless the LSD will be a vast improvement
