Here's when it was clean. There's not much to see now. Everything is covered in soot because both the uppipe bellows are blown apart. Lol.

I also want it to be easily fixable anywhere in the country I might be with it. For the price difference between OBS and Sd up pipes I could mostly switch over to the SD system. My goal at this time is to go with E-pump, SD turbo/up pipes/IC/pedestal, Stage 1s or 2s, 17 HPOP and a tune. I have a WWII in my SD and plan on getting another one if I go the SD turbo on this truck.

Unless the uppipe donuts are currently leaking, I wouldn't mess with them. You might contact Jim @ Rosewood. At one time he was modifying OBS uppipes to bellowed pipes so that we weren't forced to buy IH pipes. I don't know if he's still doing them or not. To switch over to the SD setup, you'll need to change one of the exhaust manifolds(the driver side IIRC), the uppipes, pedistal, turbo, and intake plenums. The good thing about that is you won't be forced to find an E99 spider when you do the IC. We'll have to talk more about the setup. I know I have some tan interior parts for you, so I'm sure we'll be meeting in person to talk it all over.

Why does the exhaust manifold need to be switched?
I looked dang hard to spot any differences when converting the motor for TXtinct...
Any i found seemed to be cosmetic. Mounting location alignment on all fronts looked identical... but i did not take them to the shop and put them on my bench. It was just eyeball measurements... highly technical lol.

Do you know offhand what the significant differences are Travis?

The outlet on the SD manifold is around an inch longer IIRC. Tom S had some pretty good pictures floating around somewhere from when he swapped to the SD stuff. You might try finding those.

I still have that set i pulled off the obs motor that went into TXtinct. I had blasted and phosphate treated them in anticipation of putting them on my truck...

I will hold on to them till Zombieheart goes in, and if they dont get used i will offer them up to the Brotherhood for proper disposal. I might revisit the discussion of their differences when i yank the set off Motorbug's ticker.
