Mark's 1G Winter Projects
 
5 Attachment(s)
Just finished up my 4Ē aluminum exhaust this winter on my 1G and thought I would throw up some pictures. I want to drive the car on the street and didnít want to do a fender dump, so this is a great alternative. It transitions over from stainless steel to aluminum at the back of the oil pan. Its 3.5Ē stainless from the turbo to the transition at the pan. I made the 3.5 to 4 inch transition to a v-band. It uses a vibrant aluminum muffler. The total weight of the aluminum section is around 13 lbs. I cannot wait to hear what it sounds like!

Yep, I added a DSS driveshaft, a set of stage 5 axels and a new revised Shep transfer case. One of the pics has the driveshaft installed, but it measured up 2Ē too short, back to DSS it went for modifications.

Awesome work. I would love to get a close look at this car and learn some things.

Damn that's huge! Can you get a picture of it with a kitten in the muffler? Or maybe a black lab...

Looks good, Mark. Is your car lowered at all, and if so, and concerns about the exhaust scraping where it goes under the rear differential?

Yes, remove it and make it 5" turbo back.

That looks really cool as is!

I upgraded the snail, itís a PTE billet wheel on my 42R! Should work great, I have heard that one of the Buick guys picked up something like 125 whp with the billet upgrade. Itís the same compressor wheel used in MAPís Evo drag car. The old cover and cast wheel have turned into garage art. More to come later.

This was done late last summer, but i thought I would throw them up.
Parachute pics, I made my own mount with receiver. I turned a piece on my lathe for the receiver.

And here is the finished version with the parachute mounted.

Finally what it looks like without the chute installed.

I did all of this rear end work last year. The tow eliminator kit, all poly bushings and replaced all of the control arms with adjustable ones. I had the car aligned with the rear tires straight up and down with no toe in. I also have a set of Ksport RR coilovers with an 18kg/mm spring rate in the rear. No ride quality on the street, it also sucks in the cornering department.

I just put carpet back in yesterday.

Dude I love the little mural on the wall!

Billet 42R, drool! Glad to see you're still making progress with this thing, you just don't quit!

Thanks! I like the garage art thing, my wife put that together for me. Sheís awesome and she also supports me with all of my hobbies, spending tons of money on pretty much useless shit.
Iím excited to see what kind of power the new turbine will make, the difference between the cast and the billet wheel is night and day.

Iím just having some fun and the 1G is a perfect and easy platform to do that with. I have an evo too, but Iím not willing to make it a race car. Itís kind of crazy that I put more miles on 1Gís during the year than the evo, although it's easy to do with a winter that seams like it will never end.
