View Full Version : My new Amps/brakes/exaust....

12-02-2004, 03:28 AM
SO..Long time coming, did almost all of my 3" exasut, all thats left is the down pipe. (dont mind the holes in the skirt above the muffler, they were already there. AND, finally did the Jumbo brake conversion, from the big brakes that were on the car. The red calipers stand out and look pretty nice I thought, the brackets are black...but you cant see em in the pic. AND my new stereo, new headunit, one amp for the new sub and one for the 4 speaks in the doors. When doing the heater core, since I had the dash out, i also took out the front seats, back seats, all the trim and rocker panels, carpet....ran all new 14ga wires to the doors, one 4 ga power wire to the trunk for the amps, and 4 pairs of RCA cables, 2 for the 4 channels, 1 pair for the sub, and 1 for the MP3 box, which is currently being relocated, since the amps are now where the box was. That panel is on hinges too, so i can get my spare tire and jack out. Took 2 hours to cut and carpet. Lemem know what ya think.

Thats really nice work there. Do you have any problems with the amps overheating though? I know that mine tend to get pretty hot after a while of use even though they are out in the open. Looks like a really clean install though. :rockon:

Actually i havent checked back there after cranking it for a while....so i dont know about the heat, heh.

yea, those rims are pure sex, IMO...anywyas, with rims that sexy, you hardly even notice the brakes :rofl:

a man after my own heart...the new infinity amps are awesome, im currently contemplating getting the new 6channel one, for wiring simplicity and bitchin factor. clean install too!

the exhaust looks really good! is it all mandrel bent? where did you get the pipes


speaking of ronal rims...the R15 (firehawk) rims, R-1001's, R-67, LX, SX, LS, R10, and R38s are all incredibly sexy as well! oh man i remember when i used to dream about ronals on my car....hmm this has me thinking ;-)

Looks sweet man! What are the specs on your stereo system?

12-02-2004, 06:03 PM
You know volvorod85, ive actually seen your car on whilsire a couple times too, is that apt complex of fairfax? or something is it in palms? anyways, nice car, looks awesome.

Ya, my whole system is infinity, and im really happy with it. The exaust is all mandrel bent, I got the peices from Mike (thelostartof), orderes the Dynomax 3" oval muffler and 3" catco cat from summit, and just went to the muffler shop we use for work, and he did it with me so it would be the way i wanted it...in a week or two we will get the down pipe in. I figure, if Im goin 3", you cant bend it, its got to be mandrel, or it just folds, do it once, and do it right....cause god knows Im frekin tired of doing things over! And thanks for the comments about the wheels. The price on Ronals isnt that bad really, well under 200$ a rim for most of em. Thanks for all the comments, its nice to see my work appreciated by fellow bricksters :)
