the biggest issue was the canton pan and the stock k-member

i used the FRPP swap oil pan, its close but it barely clears the k-member. Finally started her up for the first time since Oct., she ran on 4 cylinders for about 10 seconds but cleared up and MAN does that new exhaust sound good (H pipe into 40 series flows dumped). I can't wait to get my darn plates and go cruisin.

yeah i wanted the best pan i could buy and everything pointed me to the canton pan wich i guess is a little overkill for mine I almost wish id used the motorsport pan.

i have about 12-16" of 3" pipe and 40 series its pretty loud :lol:


your setup looks nice. I m going to doll mine up some as i go.
