paul ko hands me a downpipe flange.
the car is at the muffler shop, getting a downpipe.
once again i drove past three cops with no mufflers. once again nothing happened. i love the sound the engine makes, it was easy to imagine driving down the mulsanne straight, the sound echoing off the buildings.
in reality though i was pulling away from an intersection, shifting at maybe 3000rpm (its not tuned, nor do i have a fuel pump, so ive got the limiter at 4500)
i can't wait to get it back and drive my car, for the first time since december
well i have it back. it runs amazingly well, and its super quiet. i kinda liked the race carness of the open exhaust, or maybe i'm not used to not being deafened. the quiet is nice though, you realize how smooth the engine runs, its vibration free.

could you please make some vids if you have acces to a camera ?
so driving the 20b.
day 1: no boost 4500 rev limit (stock fuel pump)
it sounds and drives like a stock t2, its even the same speed
day 2: .4 bar, same fuel cut, same fuel pump.
its now fd fast, especially on the freeway in 5th, it seems like its even smoother.
it does handle wierd, on turn in you can feel something heavy up front, and then the rear bar tells you its there. so it does not turn in the same, but once its settled in its ok. it probably would be better with a front sway bar, and shocks that are newer than 1988
Anyhow, there is a dude that makes swaybars for the protege that I'm getting to start manufacturing swaybars for the 2nd gen rx7... they will just be straight across bars with no bumps (hopefully this works) with lengthened arms. Initial price estimate is under $150, but we'll see... waiting for a reply from him...
