I just picked my '84 up from the exhaust shop where I had them build a down=
pipe for the 20V motor to my stock (minus center resonator) urq exhaust sys=
tem. Until now I had driven it (quick test drives) around with a downpipe =
rigged up to my system--lots of leaks, etc. I got in the car and with a qu=
ick turn of the key the motor started and immediately settled to nice, stea=
dy, muffled idle. Once off, the car feels great. It really pulls nicely, i=
s smooth, and spools up quick. Third gear is my favorite, so far - it pull=
s so nice there. The sound is great, more of a whine than a roar. Honestl=
y it is no 10V in terms of sound, but I think the other factors make up for=
it, IMO. I still have some things to finish up and some small issues, but=
the project is wrapping up and the fruit of my labor tastes great - well t=
he first bite at least.
I figure I'm average, or less than average, in terms of my mechanical (and =
definitely electrical) skills compared to this list. I've had so much help=
thanks to this list.
Thank you Steve E, Dennis G, Dave D, Ben H, and all the others who answered=
questions for me. You guys are the best.
I have taken several pictures if anybody wants to see them. Some are jpg, =
some are in Word. My files are probably huge due to my lack of computer ex=
pertise-sorry. Maybe somebody would want to host them for a while???--alth=
ough admittedly the pics are not revolutionary--they just look like pics of=
an urq in pieces. I did take a few pics of issues that come up during the=
'84 urq 20V
