    Ed,
    IIRC, that is the exhaust with a "step" design. (primary tubing starts at 1 1/2 inches, and steps up to 1 3/4 several inches away from the head). If so, I know that there was a lot of...

    David,
    Use the Hawk HT-10's for the front, unless you have upgraded to the legal ABS sized brakes. Hawk doesn't make the ht-10's in this pad, so you can use the blues instead. Follow the...

    I'll second the no rear bar. I started with a rear bar on the S13, ended up faster and more driveable without it.

    Joe,
    I've never had any problems using aftermarket muffler bearings, as long as they were the proper undersize, and have the extra oiling groove. Perhaps they were not broke in properly??

    David,
    I'm not sure what tire size you run. For long course, I'm assuming **(dangerously) a 225/55/14, you will be right at 7,100 rpm with a 3.90 rear running the same speed as my ITA 240 SX was...
