    Re: High mileage chassis showing its age.

    Between work, out of town and the weather I have been without a stick shift for almost 4 months. Still not done but close enough I can do a power up check tomorrow and see what catches on fire, change the oil and get the carpet dropped back in.

    The center and rear exhaust pipes for a P body appear to be discontinued. I can get the rear one going into the muffler but the center pipe is not to be had anywhere. The same pipe section for the A body can be had easily enough so I'll be ordering one of those and cutting it to fit.

    Getting closer, still need to figure out the wiring for the mirrors and if I want to pre-wire for the heated mirrors. The blower motor functions worked perfectly. Wanted to light it off but then I remembered there was no exhaust so that did not happen.

    Did you find a stainless option for the exhaust? I couldn't find anything for the csx and I'd like to get an exhaust on it so I don't have to worry about over boost every time I get on the gas.

    Stainless will be a local shop or buy the bends and weld your own.

    Every time I have to touch the exhaust its usually a last minute rush job, where I just need to get something thrown together and get the car functional. This time was no exception.

    Since the junk that came off this time is still intact I may try and get the center pipe replicated in SS and go from there.
