Original headliner? If so, that's impressive. Where'd you get the cover? I'm interested in one for my '88.

Looking good as always.

Thanks! Yeah, original headliner. I don't know if the later 7/9 series cars had the sagging headliner problem like the early ones. I had to replace the headliner in my old '85. This is a non-smoker car, so that obviously helps.

As far as the cover, I got it from Covercraft. I found some corner of their site(s) that listed it as a closeout. It's a $240 cover that I snagged for $80. I can't for the life of me figure out how I got to the page showing it as a closeout. It's actually a Wolf custom cover marketed as a the DUSTOP line. The part number on my shipping invoice is 182-63010, I think it's the same cover for 740/940/960 wagons. Honestly, it's a nice cover, but IMO it isn't $240 nice. Hope that helps.

Yeah, I had to replace the headliner in my '89 and will have to do the same with the '88. My wagon spends most of its time in the garage so having a cover would be nice. Thanks for info. I'll have a look and see if they still have them.

Regarding headliners, 940s don't have the sagging problem like 740's do. iirc 92 740s have the better headliner too.

If I was going to build my own I would have done away with the resonator. I figure no cat is a decent trade off for having the resonator though. I'd love to weld my own up, I just don't know when I'll get the time. They accepted my "best offer", so this was $315 shipped. I have to say, it looks like a nice exhaust for the price, darn you China. I would like to build a 3" dp this summer to finish things off.

Noice. Helped a friend install a ebay special stainless exhaust on his integra. Cheaper than a stock replacement. Only one hanger needed to be tweaked a little. Otherwise nice for the price.

Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. I also like the dual tips on this as apposed to the big honkin' thing they have on the end of the TME catback that I had on my 7. I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of difference this makes. I was looking at things last night and noticed that the stock exhaust is schmushed down to about 1.75" at the over the axle pipe. Dat's no bueno.

Clean wagon is clean. You really know how to find them and keep them nice.


BTW, the seats......they're still here...........and I might be in the StL this weekend....

Unless they have changed it, the rear hangers don't line up right (at least on mine they didn't) No big deal though, just use the stock bracket/hanger thingy.

Thanks Ben! Sadly, the project I was tasked to is on indefinate shutdown so my job is kinda tenuous right now. I was hoping to pick those up this spring, but even if I sell the bike, I doubt I'll be able to swing them. The exhaust was due to be replaced, so I convinced the wife this purchase was justified. Don't think I can pull that off with the seats. If things change, I'll be in contact fo' sho.

Yeah I heard that. I also heard that some people had to trim a section to get it to fit right. I'm curious how much work I'll have to do. Having a reason to break out the mig wouldn't hurt my feelings though, I'll just have to grab some wire.

Mine was harder to install because I was trying to reinvent the wheel. I was trying to adapt the 2 muffler section to the rest of my 3" to shut it up a little bit. It worked, many hours/days/weeks of rage later. Then it got destroyed when a vband broke and dropped off 1/2 of my exhaust at 80 mph on the way to SE last year.

Attention: This is how not to do it.

So I have the old one off. Nothing too eventful, but manhandling everything by yourself is always fun. Didn't botch cutting the rearmost set of hangers off on the rear muffler, yay. Using the stock hanger for the rear muffler.

I test fit the resonator and test pipe: fitment is not on point. I'll have to evaluate things to see if I need to use a different hanger for the resonator, if the test pipe need to be cut down or if I need to cut the end of the downpipe. I know when I fit it, the test pipe was close to hitting the floor because the bends weren't falling in the right spot.

Cut the end of the test pipe and had to get hardware for the downpipe flange. The usual fitting tweaks and then I took it for a test drive; didn't hear anything hitting the floor. I'm going to try to get the muffler up a smidge higher and replace the cheapo clamps with band claps, other than that it seems to fit pretty good. I don't know if I just wasn't laying into it much before, but under full throttle I have some significant boost creep now. Sonofa.

Describe significant. Enough to cut fuel (do 940s even have a fuel cutoff for excessive boost)?

I doubt if it previously existed and you didn't catch it when not laying into it. It's most likely due to that shiny new exhaust and lack of a cat. Do these have external wastegates?

Exhaust looks sweet, btw.

Thanks brother. Ok, first off, I need a real boost gauge. Yeah, I know. I'm thinking I was running about 10-12 before. Now it's set at probably closer to 8 and it's running up to the point where I get marbles in a can. No bueno. This has an integral wastegate and no boost cut. I knew I'd have to lower the boost afterwards, but now it seems like the mbc and wastegate can't keep it locked down. I want to get one of these:

That'll give me boost gauge and some solid boost control.

Thanks. It needed a new exhaust, so this was a convenient upgrade. Definitely helps it *look* more modded than before.

Entered the wagon in the St. Louis European Auto Show that was held today. I did a full exterior treatment on it in preparation. Wash, claybar, polish, wax and detail. It ended up making it pretty shiny.
