As far as exhaust.
2.5 is good.
BUT
On the dyno 3 inch always out performs the 2.5

It is a personal preference.

That's what I figured. I wanna do a 3" system, but someone told me that was overkill for these motors. Has anyone seen a good way to stress relieve the exhaust manifolds to prevent cracking?

Got my pipes back from the shop. Hung them up in place to check fitment. Some of the bends weren't quite right, so I had it towed to them to do the finishing touches.

Got a majority of the body work done. Started messing around with some epoxy primer and a new spray gun. I should have the whole body primed in the next few weeks. Finished all of my vacuum deletes. Installed Griffin radiator, and inline filler neck (previous owner welded filler neck closed.) Installed 2 hard pipes. She is running and driving again. As soon as the primer/paint is done, she's going into daily driver mode.

I have finally made some time to keep going with the project. Installed a new casting non jet head, new timing set, etc. Had a local shop do some powder coating for me. Stainless braided hose on pretty much everything possible. Waiting for parts delivery to finish it up.
