Replacing XR7-G dual exhaust - 390GT

Make your Cougar run faster, handle better, and jump higher... okay maybe not jump higher. If you feel the need for speed, this is the place.

Yes, but it is not fully hooked up right now.

^^^ That's the thing I'm most excited about doing! - But other stuff needs to be done ahead of the wheels.

Tempting to have them re-rimmed in a deeper dish. Not many companies will fool with them, tho I did locate a wheel company in Canada that would.

Seeing up close what would be involved in taking them apart and putting them back together, with the same basket, I think it would be a little easier with a new one. But I don’t know if I would trust them at a higher speed for a long distance. They are going to look very cool on your G though.

Looking good Phillip - that thing is sweet! I might have to come out there and shoot some pics of it. Unless you want to road trip out here for the open house :D

^^^ Andrew - I can't tell you how badly I would love to come out there and attend the WCCC open house.

When I do, I'm afraid I'll fly out and be Cougarless.

But, if you ever do want to come east to Va and see Richmond, Williamsburg, Jamestown/Yorktown, etc., it would be my pleasure to show you around.

Maybe time it with Carlisle one year.

- Phillip

Heather and I will be planning a trip in the future and can't wait for your tour guiding in costume. Are you running a bed and breakfast?
