So many lines! What do they all do?
« Reply #90 on: March 28, 2016, 07:34:32 PM »
No body lift, I did break out the ball peen hammer for some needed clearance issues, I'll take pics tomorrow

The biggest clearance issue was the shock mount, I cut the elbow down by the turbo flange to make the bend tighter but it still hit the shock mount so I had to bash the pipe in there a decent bit until I was confident it wouldn't interfere even if the engine moved. Then the next spot was the manifold flange where the crossover bolts and the  frame rail, now that I clearanced all of that I can just clamp some elbows to get it back to my 5" up to the stack that was on the truck, a one inch body lift would have been beneficial for the manifold flange and frame rail clearance, but for the shock mount I saw no other option with the pipe I had to work with.

Drove it to work today with luckily with no issues at all and a co worker pulled his escort out of the barn, cracked me up that he parked next to me, made the truck look huge

That wouldn't happen to be one of the Escorts with the Mazda Diesel? 
A buddy had one of those.  The fuel mileage was better than my 78 VW Rabbit that routinely got 54mpg on the highway and 50 around town.  Abysmal quality interior on both cars but cheap to run.

No it's a gas job. He bought it new and even the tires are still original, I think it only has like 30k miles, he has many nice vehicles

You and several thousand others.  I'd rather have a 1979 Scirocco GLX RHD

A couple weeks have gone by and I've drove the truck several times, everything seems to be great as far as running is concerned
