Put some green stuff on the roof and the blindet rear doors.



You need to blind the rear doors and some other duties to become the truck taxed like it is.
Truck tax is 172€ vs. 864€ car tax. For the same vehicle.
Don't ask me why.
It's way complicate!
But it works.
Sometimes.
Depending of the tax master, I guess.

Same thing happened to me. From there...without a lift...I opted to raise the white flag and took it to a muffler shop for the ypipe install. Cost was about $70 if I remember correctly.

I installed the the rest (cat back) when I got home. I couldn't get my flanges to close up completely. Easy to snap a bolt there too...when you're trying to snug those up.

I removed the exhaust manifold and got 2 out of the 3 studs out, the one I was doing because it looked a little stripped is the one I'm stuck on.
One more try tomorrow then I may bail out too.

Derek has a manifold he's bringing by tomorrow, so one way or the other I guess it will move forward, thanks I just may do it. One stud away from the install part of the task

Good choice with the head from Turner. Over the last year, I have seen 5 of the Td5's imported here have issues with a cracked head. My local shop has been using Turner to supply the replacements, and have been very happy with the results.

Knock on wood, I have been trouble free so far with mine, but in the back of my head, I know it's coming. I'm at 112,000 km... it's inevitable...

Polybush kit showed up today, not just the standard kit though. YRM is now selling Polybush kits with A4-80S Stainless hardware. I was just about order the standard dynamic bush set for the truck, and also put in a set of cranked trailing arms, then noticed YRM now had these kits. No brainer to go for the stainless set up, all going in tomorrow.

Not going to be fun.... so I am having them done by my local shop...

All my business are pretty worn, clunking a lot. Plus with putting on the cranked arms, it's just time to do them all.

Reset timing from 15 back to 5... Sounds and feels better.. (No I did not set it at 15)
No cel on a short drive and longer idle (usually where the cel would occur)
Crossing fingers... Moving it back to DD status and sell the heep

Put in a manual boost controller. Set it at 14psi. Seems to spool quicker all the way up to 14. Previously the wastegate was starting to open at 7-9 psi slowing spool up. Next I will ditch the two "mufflers" and go 2.5 straight through.

Finally found a cup holder for the Ninety...

I've been wrestling with how to hold cups in my Ninety SW. Saw some Yeti up holders on eBay & thought I'd give them a try. So far so good!

I have a 2.5" straight pipe on mine and I absolutely love the sound.

Pulled the trigger and put on a 2" 5 bar strip above sill. I cleaned up some minor oxidation and felt it fits right in with the rest of the black 5 bar on the truck. Thinking about rear door bottom next but still on the fence. Still need a final coat of paint and finish other side
