If you plan to bend everything yourself, then just buy a few extra feet of pipe to allow for incorrect bends, and buy some flanges and some hanger rod.

Or buy a bunch of bends of you can figure up approx what you will need.

But if you've no place to do it the question is academic. If you need exhaust now, then you need to have it done for you.

The question was fairly academic, it's not a priority. If I could do it easily then I would do it now, I think I will wait a couple weeks until I have some more $$$$$ then pay somebody else.

I just picked up a gently used Doug thorley header and I am thinking of have the exhaust shop put 2.5 inch pipe and a glass pack after it. Is it better to go with 2.5 or 2.25 inch pipe?

2.25 would be fine. Some say 2.5 is okay as well.


Ask the shop what their opinion is. They're the ones that do this stuff for a living.

Let me preface this by saying that I hate wiring (I literally installed had fog lights and had them on my rig for a full year until they fell off, never wired them.)

 

 

My fender mounted turn signals are not getting power, the bumper mounted ones and the rear ones are working. What should I check?

You know both aren't getting power? Or just that they aren't turning on?

Confirmed no power via multi meter. Also tried new bulb.

Captain...driving along 82 in Yakima today towards Ellensburg, there is a salvage yard behind Walmart.

Easily spotted was a blue/silver 2WD 720. Go get that ish.

May take the engine and steering column. AR1 wrecking? I will try and call them Monday.

 

Edit I need another motor because well I always need more motors, and I am gonna try running a blow through Weber set up with like 7psi. I may go forged pistons and then I might rock up to 12 psi, but then I would need to consider upgrading other stuff right?

Why not just swap in a KA?

Also I believe the turn signal problem appears to just be the flasher. I have the Doug thorley header on, but no pipe yet. Man is it loud! I also some how accidentally fixed the tach while trying to fix the turn signals.

Maybe the KA swap is easier and cheaper than all the shenanigans I am trying to pull off now? Although I have made some good you tube videos with all this insanity.....

KA will be less headache and cost, maybe, than whatever forced shenanigans you're trying to pull.

Shenanigans should always be chosen exclusively for the sake of shenanigans. If you need DD power and reliability, ka swap does make more sense. Even VG Swap.

But shenanigans are great when they are an option.

Actually a VG sounds like a lot of fun! Right now it's shenanigans just for the sake of shenanigans. I have 2 720s that run great so I just need one running at a time right? But I should probably try and make it to canby first.....

Too bad a NapZ motor can't wind out enough to feel any of that horsepower.
