SP2 Xpipe welded on the SP1 done....

Well finally done with this mod..Two words(TIME CONSUMING).. Lots of getting up and down rechecking things,mostly the canister alignment...I bought these FMF bronze color canisters with TI mids brand new off a member here...And they sound great,Atleast I think so...Figured they would go good with the gold rims... Had the valve clearances checked all good with 19,000 miles on the clock...Anyways glad I done this...Few pics..The rear pic shows the alignment slightly off,it's not that bad is it??? Let me know...I didn't want to force or bind things to much...

Nice work, lets see the header.
Where did you find the donor SP2 header?
