Yeah... Coast is reallly proud of their mufflers. I've only used them on other people's cars where I wasn't paying for them LOL

They look awesome . Knowing me I'll do something dumb like try to make my own muffler from scratch and spend 2 weekend doing it to come up with some sub-par crap pile that I'm not happy with :) ha

You really need a horizontal bandsaw. Keep an eye on CL for a good old used one. I tried the HF but it was crap and needs a day of setup to cut well.

Car is coming along nicely!

Horizontal bandsaw I forgot about those , with the liquid cooling ? That would be nice !
Been trying to clean the shop all week so I can eat organized and run some new air lines and what not so not really and work done .
Got a pump for the car , just a Bosch 044 . Had to make a fitting for it but should work . I'll have to make a bracket for it too

this.

I upgraded last year to a used Jet hyraulic feed wet cut horizontal bandsaw and its night and day difference. the blade is huge compared to the HF saw. 1" blade makes a big difference in the cut rigidity not to mention being able to clamp the parts properly and control the cut speed. paid around $500 for it used. goes for about $2k new.

Yeah 500 would be a hell of a steal!
I've been using this right now and a belt sander which works pretty good. Carbide Tipped blade and I've done a few exhaust with it

Still doing the exhaustive task of spring cleaning my shop and trying to organize .
This is a rare bird (one of 300 something ever I think ?) but It got moved outside in favor of quattros

Forgot about some of the other projects .
Shop truck going to be going together soon, Got the frame sandblasted and coilovers for it , need the space to lay it out and box the frame then maybe do an LS or 5.3 or something cool with standalone .

I got a Wellsaw 58B made in 1959, I've got about $500 into it. They still make it today in the states but it's $2500 or so. When you call for parts a really nice lady answers the phone and knows everything there is to know about your saw. I love old fashioned customer service and quality parts

shop truck needs an ls single turbo.

A friend of a friend just went over 1000whp and 9.7 with stock 6.0 LS!! Only internal mods are camshaft. Even has used headgaskets and bolts.


current:
-mk4 tdi wagon with some mods
-TDI b3 90q, holset turbo, be strong little connecting rods!
-the turbo tractor
past:
-11 second 90q junker
-20vt swapped 90q winter beater
-efi 10vt 4kq
-way too many other long gone urs's, 200's 4000's, b5's

The only reason I was thinking maybe 5.3 instead of 6.0 LS is because the price of the 5.3 is so dang cheap that if I blow it up it's $300 for another one at a junk yard. They are so common

Yeah ha , I have a couple with doors like that. One from a construction company , the American oil one I went to a hell of a lot of trouble to dig that one out just because of that door. I think my grandfather salvaged that truck from a junkyard.
Here is one of the other ones. I couldn't pay somebody to buy this thing though, it's interesting . I have had it up for $500 for months and not a single bite . I always thought the door and stuff was cool.

Much different than working on Audi kind of refreshing for a change . I got this thing to run In about an hours time just to verify the engine was good .
Image
Soon I'll probably start a thread for he shop truck some day I'm looking forward to working on it just have other projects ( URQ ) that I need to make headway on first.

Im finally just about finished cleaning the shop and one bonus is i think I have found the proper sump tube to go with my 7A pan. I think it's the one on the right .
