Eventually everything weak will surface.

Did you do the fluid reservoir separation yet? I didn't notice when your car was in the other day. Been thinking that might be something more folks should be looking into.
Comes with the Kit I just ordered. Definitely a good thing for everyone to get regardless of power level. Using the brake res for clutch fluid is just plain stupid. All that nasty brake dust and junk in your clutch lines clog it up quick.....

I use to have to change my fluid before every track day or the clutch would stick to the floor at least one run.

I'm getting ready to split mine as well. I need to find a source locally to purchase some EPDM hose....

One item that I could use your assistance on is in getting the new exhaust to cleat the cross brace so it does not rattel

Washers.

The ARH setup you picked up didn't come with that cross member spacer kit?

Been forever since I dealt with ARH, but I remember them having a cross member drop down kit.

I know that the MBRP ones do since the pipes are bigger and hang lower.

Not too hard to remedy however. Some washers between the body and tunnel brace and boom. Should solve the problem. I'll be (secret) busy tonight signing my life away and have some paintwork to do before Wednesday but shoot me a holler and I'll roll by to help you out if needed.

That sound can be disturbing as all get out.

Speaking of pipes sagging....

Changed out my mufflers yesterday and lowered the car another inch or so.

I guess there is definitely a point where too low....is too low on these cars.

I'm scraping pennies and paperclips on the highway this morning on the way in. Hehee.
