Replaced my Borla ProXS mufflers with DynoMax VTs...15db reduction interior noise (noisy convertible) and absolutely ZERO drone! Loud when I want it loud.

Not today but last week i replaced a muffler and tailpipe on the driver side. There was so much rust the clamp at the back of the muffler peeled away like aluminum foil trying to break the nuts loose, and had to cut the bolts off for the hpipe as they wouldnt move for anything. Wounded my old 3/8" Snap-on in the process. A tooth folded right over and threw the lefty loosely bits in full neutral. Just finished rebuilding it, good as new now.

Not what I did but more like what happened.


I got pulled over for the first time in my car.

It was after work I was on afternoons so that's 3pm-11pm and well the police officer thought my car was too loud.

All I wanted was a coffee from Tim Hortons for my ride home lol.

He gave me no ticket though.

No just swapping the pan and probably putting a letter cam in.

Previous owner dropped the car on the pan with no front wheels on.

Been a while since I've been on here; lack of funds & winter really cramped my style.... I eliminated the tail pipes for reduced weight & back pressure. I installed a N2O fogger plate for NX Express & got rid of the nozzle. I got rid of the chebbie wheel\tire that was coveres with a tire cover & bolted on the appropriate 10-hole spare.... Polished of course...

Went easy enough, though it was tricky getting the rack lined up with the bolts on the k-member while laying on a creeper.

I used MM's solid bushing kit to re-attach it, took some fiddling with the sleeves that go through the k-member.

I had to lightly hammer the collapsible steering column up into the firewall to get the upper joint in place on the hybrid shaft.

I also picked up some of MM's AN adapters for the new line, since I'm running a 5/8"16 to -6 adapter coming off the pump.

Because wannabe racecar.

No, not yet. I've still got a ton of work to do before this thing gets on the road.

Has anyone tried the hydraulic clutch kit on your 87 -93 fox body and is it worth it?

Kinda depends which one. I know a local guy says he had all kinds of problems with a McLeod unit, but I can't recall what the problems were. There was a guy on Corral who made a 10 minute youtube video that absolutely destroyed the American Powertrain kit, but APT got him to take it down somehow.

Never tried one nor probably never will, I love the feel of having a real clutch under my foot driven by cable compared to ones hydraulic assisted,

I just think that money can go towards something more useful.
