I'm cleared from doctor today, I go back to work the 13th.
Got the filter adapter back from welding and everything fits first try, tight clearances.

Headers I ordered fit very good. I cut the mufflers off that came on them. I'll install vbands on these and ceramic coat them.

Finished the fabrication area of the headers, they are going to get blasted then ceramic/aluminum coated.

Installed the finished headers for the last time, they came out great. On to the mid pipe building to get to the mufflers.

I removed the last of the exhaust system to finish the mid pipes.

This is a quick mockup of the direction, I cut off the 3.5" collector reducers and will add the v bands to them and the other ends of the mid pipes. This will allow the mid pipes/mufflers to be removed from the system as well as eliminating all gaskets after the headers.

The muffler inlets and the S pipes to them are 2.5" so I'll only have to add straight sections of 2.5" tube to connect to the reducer that will now be on the mid pipe.

Time spent with the car again, I ran out of exhaust tubing tonight. On my way to finish this exhaust and move on the the area of the swap.
