Making a new exhaust for the Z.

Who would have thought that this would be a three day ordeal? Shit is taking forever.

First we wire brush the fuck out of the Header, then shorten it, then weld a flange on.

I think this might be the shortest 240z header ever haha.

I loved the sound of to 6 to 1 but alas, over time the lower two runners became pancakes and the exhaust started blowing out between the head and header.

The old piping was also done for, so i made a new one out of five feet of 2.5" piping and a U-bend.

i tried to make it as nice as possible and tuck it as close to the body as i could.

here it is next to the old pipe.

one of the nicer welds of the day, please keep in mind that all i have is a Flux core MIG before you judge me haha.

Ill finish the rest tomorrow, the rest being hangars, painting the header and welding the end portion on.
