That's actually the front subframe. I've never seen one that was this delicate. Luckily the original one was salvageable. I haven't gotten to the rear subframe yet. I do have a quite nice replacement for that on hand if it's needed though.

I may have the greatest neighbors ever! We are very much alike, and have no problem helping each other out when needed. He made this for me in his sign shop as a thank you!

So I have a question for you guys. On Sat. I'm going to pick up a fairly "rare" rear muffler for this car. I personally have only seen a few of them in the states, so that's why I say "rare". I can't find a new pipe from cat to axel, so I have to use the original. That pipe doesn't seem in completely terrible condition, but the muffler is rotted out. The question is, should I just weld a pipe in, or should I pick up a resonator of some sort to weld in?

I have done the straight pipe on a 10v, and it wasn't bad at all with no cat, and a stebro rear box. I know these 20v engines can be kind of pitchy at higher RPM, so not sure how well this recipe would work. This car will have a cat though, so that will probably change how this works as well. Any suggestions?

Well here's a goofy idea... take some measurements and decide what resonator you would put in there.

Cut out the muffler, leaving the pipe with the correct dimensions to install that resonator. But instead splice a length of pipe in there, secured with band clamps (because they don't deform the pipe).

Then if you like the sound leave it that way, otherwise remove the length of pipe and install a muffler.

On my 20v quattro sport in the UK I removed the rear box and had the front flex/small box section off a Subaru fitted to replace that with scorpion twin exit pipes, it was still quiet as hell and with the huge cone filter I had fitted you could hear that more than the exhaust. I never got around to removing the center section.

The white 20v cq I just sold had a full stainless on the car, I think that's going to end up being a parts car. I don't know if the new cq I just bought has a stainless on or just stock?

So here is what I spent the last 5 hours on the road to go and get!
Image

I picked it up for dirt cheap! Oh, and it's never been used! Look at the inside of those tips!
Image

The story I got, was a friend of his was cleaning out a warehouse and found it. Gave it to him to possibley modify to fit on his Acura! It has been sitting in his basement for over a year, and posted it on letgo over a month ago. He didn't respond the first time I sent him a message almost a month ago, but did the other day. I'm excited now! This was the kind of find I needed to hopefully motivate me!

I figured it was well worth what I paid for it in considering the "value" increase on the car haha.

Nice custom auto craft exhaust, I don't think paul is making them anymore but he has started up doing some stuff again.

I checked out the site. Most exhaust parts are listed as "out of stock". I would love to get the matching mid pipe.

I think you can email him and he might be able to do that part. s2forum guys are getting a group buy from him for other bits started.

That would be awesome, but out of the budget right now. I can only imagine what shipping alone would cost.

I'm not sure about that, from what I've heard he was not bad with the shipping.

Shipping is always a pita. It was 65gbp to ship a bumper from Poland to the UK, will see what it costs to ship nine bumpers across here soon. Hopefully not too bad.

Well gentlemen... I think I'm done with this project... I have no motivation to work on it, and haven't for months... For those that have been watching, if you are interested in it, shoot me a PM. I WILL NOT sell any of the parts I have amassed for this car, unless the shell sells without them.

Interested to know how much you are after for the car. Sorry to hear you are not continuing with it, I know that feeling all too well.

Varia, I'll get there. Haven't really even opened my garage in a while. The car is currently on stand with the front subframe ready to go back on.

Pete, I don't really have a price in mind. As the old saying goes, it's only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

True, prices are on the up and up. Getting quite a few people in the facebook groups enquiring about buying coupes.

Well, with a few almost insulting offers, I've decided to just push on putting the car back together. Over the past couple weeks(slow times at work), I've dismantled, cleaned, painted, and rebooted the front CV shafts.

The joints felt good, so I just cleaned them out, and repacked them. Next will be the front strut housings.

Nice. Sometimes tackling the "easy" stuff is helpful for a project like this. Getting moment matters.

I think I'm going to try some electrolosys on the strut housing and see how that works out. They looks pretty nasty now, but that could be just rust scale on them.
