I was looking at the same exhaust. Seems to be a lot of variations at different price points for the same thing.

Think you could snap some more pictures of what it looks like from the back and underneath? I'm also curious about how much 'love' was required to get it to work correctly.

A full day it took to fit. You cant really tell in the pictures, but i had to deform certain sections of the exhaust. I built a jig to hold the exhaust to bench, while i beat with rubber mallet. The largest deformity was maybe 2mm deep. When i first assembled pieces under car, i never thought that it would fit without cutting and welding, but it did. I had 2mm wood spacers to insert between the exhaust and the suspension/body where the clearances were tight. then as i tightened from front to back i would see where i needed to deform. It was quite the job

I built a new hanger to help hold the exhaust where i wanted it ahead of the rear suspension. The ss wire is holding up my driveshaft until the rear diff is back in.

I had to build the nut in this picture that would hold itself, as i couldn't get a wrench to hold it

Oi. Maybe I'll be heading down to the exhaust shop afterall. I also inquired to Klue about a Bully clutch as it appears my ST205 swap needs one.

If you are going to a generic muffler shop, be prepared for some gross looking bends, not nice mandrel bends.
Probably look like this

Dug out my old gtech pro and went out on wet streets with my winter rubber. Heavy spinning in first gear, and running 15lbs boost

Quick note on the ebay exhaust, on one of my cars I was able to install it without having to deform the pipes or cut anything. Just putting a few washers under the E-W crossmember gave me enough clearance to sneak it by.

Car is looking great though! :smokes:

Damn, maybe mine was just not in the jig correctly, because it took a lot of work.
And on a second note, I LOVE THE GENIII 3SGTE. If anyone out there is contemplating spending a bunch of money on their GENI, don't waste your time or money. These GENIII's are so much more refined in their driveablility and performance, for a reasonable price. Every time i fire her up it feels like im starting a new car. So much fun to drive. Just like a 2-stroke dirtbike, a quick fan of the clutch and its spooling hard

Yeah, the bigger runners on both sides of the head really change the 3S, way more modern feeling. Even the stock tune is good for plenty of fun too.

Still too much spinning, but decent times
