Its definitely something different. We had talked quite some time ago about making a tube header for the HY35 I had picked up, but that went away. I then had him make the new exhaust for the factory setup, so I was kind of being cheap about it asking about factory placement. Then I don't need a new downpipe as well. :lol:

Oh gotcha . Stock placement . I was wondering why you didn’t do equal length . But I don’t know how much difference it makes

Today's mini project seemed to go well. I was getting very little air from the defroster vent, so I pulled the DS knee board to investigate. Turns out one of my cables had detached itself at the controls and was just moving around. I held it in place, and was able to get everything to move as it should.

Now on to the "seemed" part. Drove the car to work tonight, and had zero heat! I honestly think it was cooker inside the car than outside. Now I need to investigate this. Not sure what changed on that front between Friday and tonight...

One down, one to go... nice. Any chance you need to burp some air from the coolant system?

That's a possibility. I'm going to make sure all my cables stayed on with the reasembly, then try to bleed the system. It's getting colder here now, so need to make that work soon!

It's fixed for now...

As some have pointed out, I did have some air in the system. I filled the tank, and ran it without the cap for a while. Watched the tank level drop significantly... So filled back up and hasn't moved. There is also the issue of the cables no longer being attached to the box. I don't mean where the eyes wrap around the pegs on the arms, but the clips that hold the outer plastic to the heater box. So for now, they are zip tied to the floor vent to keep them from moving. It actually worked extremely well! I can cylce through the different vent positions and adjust the heat level! I'll have to pull the dash out at a later date and fix it correctly.
