So for the past few weeks I've been working on replacing my entire exhaust from the header back. It's taken a LOT of work and has been extraordinarily annoying, as far as I'm concerned, but I am almost done, pending the arrival of the 2 new O2 sensors from RockAuto.com.

I first cut out the old muffler on the trails a few months ago during a club run, and then ran only a cat/front pipe for 3 months. Unfortunately the front pipe rusted through and there was a massive exhaust leak out the header (bye bye, MPG) so I finally replaced it. Problem was that the bolts were rusted and seized, so I had to cut off the output of the header flanges and fab up a new flange mount for the front pipe.

Then went in the Magnaflow front pipe & catalytic converter system, followed by modding a Banks Monster 2.5 muffler/tail pipe. That wasn't much fun either, as I had to weld together a bracket to get the muffler to couple to the catalytic converter output.


Old Cat/Front Pipe, and header flange that needed to be cut off

Now I just need those NTK sensors and I'll have a real exhaust again!
