    I did actually insure it tonight. I may tag it this week, but with the tires as sketchy as they are the next step is taking it to the nearest place that does tires and having them replaced. I'd prefer to do it when its warm-ish because its a miserable cunt to start when cold. Kicks off fine when plugged in though.

    Tim's been getting that size of tires wicked cheap online somewhere, even shipped and with local installation he claims he's still money ahead. Last pair I tossed on his car were Goodyears actually, so it's not just off-brand stuff that he can get his hands on.

    BTW that car needs an exhaust brake. Behind the muffler of course, so the "jakes" sound confuses the fuck out of people. I'd actually love to do that to my own vehicle cause I really want to quiet the exhaust down under throttle but at the same rate I simply love the roar of the Pacbrake. Unfortunately with the size of muffler and piping I got installing the brake behind the muffler will make it effective only on very long decel applications since due to the huge internal volume it will take about forever to build up enough backpressure to actually start slowing the beast down, which won't do for the way I use this thing (more than the wheel brakes actually). Should work fine for you tho, just need a small air tank and a baby e-compressor.

    "dual" exhaust on this one. Y pipe into two mufflers. I suspect that would make it rather more difficult to do.


    Assorted places can get me tires for about 60 bucks each, some are not even unknown brands. Badyear Integrity or Hankook Optimo for the same prices as Westlake and Nokian. I'll take ride over to the local place tomorrow and see what he can get me tires for. Its often been comparable to online pricing. If it ends up close to the same I'll just do that. If I can get out of this with 4 tires on the car for under 300 I'll be satisfied.

    Nokian are Finnish, great tires actually, especially the winter models.

    I also prefer to buy local if price difference ain't huge. Over the years I've spent stupid amount of money at NAPA, but time saved more than made up for it.

    Yeah with an inverted Y-pipe exhaust brake will need to go before mufflers. Shame, would have been pretty cool.
