Maintenance leads to new exhaust, sounds amazing!

Well I recently caught up on some much needed fixes. Replaced the clutch, pivot ball, detent pins, both control arms, trans mounts, flex disk, CSB, fixed a chunk out of a wheel, and new air filter. Well I hit a lot of problems. Exhaust was frozen on. I cut it off and replaced it with something unique.

Custom y pipe to a 3ft magnaflow glasspack followed by a vibrant stealth. Sounds nice and deep.

After these fixes the car feels better then ever.

I had the vibrant. But figured while I was at it I do something different. I had to ditch the stock mounts and cut the brackets. I'm going to weld up some new cross braces soon. It was hard to fit a 4" od glasspack under the car while keeping ground clearance

A drive by at 4500 to 5500 rpm would be good.

How much did you spend on the clutch? @ what miles?

I'm at around 150K and clutch feels good so far ...

Sorry. I have a 3.46 diff, and redline at around 55 mph in second. Do it in first gear.
