    High clearance

    Been working on this for a couple months, practicing with the TIG as I go. Picked up an exhaust system from a burned TNT off ebay a couple years ago & cut it up, along with some new tubing to make a high clearance exhaust. Gained about 1.5". I'll be able to build a skid plate now & still have probably a good inch more clearance than the stock header gave me. Double slip at the collector & v-band at the back so it can be pulled easily...























    Not exactly show-quality I admit, but it should be perfectly functional & most will be covered up with a skid plate anyway. Also have to chop off the bottom of the oil pan sump and weld in a new plate. The last trip out caved it in a little & cracked it to where it's slowly weeping. New bottom will be flat & maybe 1/8" higher. Can't really go much with the oil pickup inside. Still deciding on moving the oil drain to the side of the sump, but it won't ever drain quite as fully that way.

    Thx, yes, there were a few sessions of geometry and some trial & error involved to get it right
