I started my differential bushing replacement last weekend but didn't have time to finish it. I managed to at least get the inner part out using the Z1 tool. I hope to finish this tomorrow and also have everything including my exhaust installed back on for Friday Night Drags at AMS. But if not then finished by Saturday for a dyno day.

I got bored and decided to weigh up my Motordyne exhaust. This scale isn't very accurate so the numbers night be +/- 3lbs with a total is about 65 lbs.



This is the hardware weighed together in a bag (clamps and bolts). About 3 lbs




Mid-Muffler at about 14 lbs




Left rear canister at 12lbs




Right mid-pipes at about 8 lbs




Y-collector at about 8 lbs




Left mid-pipes at about 8 lbs




Right rear canister at 12 lbs

You borrowing that tool? I need to eventually do my diff bushing. Already got my Whiteline bushings.

Any idea what the stock exhaust weighed?

Nice! Yeah I think I remember seeing that thread. I'm a member on there but I am on here a lot more. How much did the tool help and how was the overall job? Can it be done in a day/half day, assuming I already have the right tools and everything?

Along with the Whiteline diff bushings, I have the Bell brace for the OEM diff cover to install as well so I figured do it all at once.

The tool didnít help me much. I was only able to use it for the inner rubber pieces. I still had to use a saw to cut the sleeve. Itís do-able within a day but I just take forever to do things.

but you are welcome to borrow the tool next. Just post up on the thread. Itís the perfect time to do everything since youíll have the diff out. Same scenario for me.

I didnít use the tool for installing. I bought some angles shelve brackets and used a long bolt to pull the bushing through. However, Iím ran into the problem of not being able to pull the using through any more and itís keeping me from being able to bolt my diff back to the car

Finally removed the metal sleeve today. Accidentally made lots of nicks around the subframe but it is what it is.

I thought I would be able to push the bushing in by hand after freezing it. How wrong I was.

I went out to Home Depot to buy this shelf bracket to help me pull the bushing through the subframe.

Front side of the bushing. I noticed after I attempted to mount my diff back on the car that I needed to have the bushing pushed in more.

The Bell Raceworks differential brace is a breeze to install. I used a wrench with the nut on the closed end, held it in place with one hand, then with the other, put the bolt through the brace, and threaded a few threads to hold the brace up.



After I got everything situated with the differential, I put on my new exhaust. Man does it sound good.

Were you able to get the bell raceworks nut to seat flush inside the rear subframe? I tried but couldn't.

Mine sits like this

Mine sits the same way are yours. I think it might be one of the tack welds that keeping it from sitting flush.

On the mustang dyno today:

Max HP: 338
with WCF: 343

Max Torque: 278
with WCF: 287

Sweet, who are you tuned by and are those E85 or 91/93 numbers?

Also where did you purchase the CFM performance ported intake runners? I did a Google search and had 0 results.

I'm tuned by Martin from R.S. Enthalpy. Heís from Miami but travels around to do group tune sessions. This dyno was just a random dyno and no tuning. Iím currently only 93.

CFM is a shop in Indiana. They specialize in porting.

I bought some new tires for the SSR wheels, 225/45R19 and 255/40R19. I also went ahead and raised my car since my Motordyne was getting beaten up badly and with all the bridges in Atlanta, my sub-frame was also taking a beating when it hits the bridge joints.

Which ones are the SSR wheels? I really like the light gold, split 8-spokes with the chrome lip. Those could look real fine on a moonlight white car.

So I guess if they're the dark bronze 6-spokes... nevermind, LOL
