Rubber but the little steel tubes that go through them have perforated edges and when you tighten it down they dig into the steel.

So it doesn't really move at all side to side but some up and down.

Nice work, I suppose that will be somewhat in the way if you ever go turbo though eh?

actually it shouldn't be.

boost line should go above it and intake should go under it.

If it is in the way then i will defiantly be cutting out the bottom bracket and will move it. .

Pretty cool. I want to make one out of my old panhard rod.

I wonder if there is any benefit to having an adjustable third mount as opposed to a solid one?

That exhaust is so F-ing hot, so all you have is a K cam? (almost the same as the iPd right?) What have you done with the exhaust? Chopped the Cat off?

Poly melts (been there - done that).

The OEM rubber will deteriorate, but it will last almost one year.

k cam and ipd cam are similar but not the same.

K-cam Ipd adjustable gear custom intake exhaust is cut after the cat and has a homemade tip. for now, i will be putting a real exhaust on later.

Other than that its stock.

ditto....glad my wife didn't walk in the office with that playing, she would have thought I "switched sides" and was playing for the other team

Oh..nice brace. Wanna lick your welds you welder you.

as for those bubble gum looking welds, they make grinders for a reason

looks good other wise.....I would have gone with tubing instead of solid bar stock, save some weight and you'd never know the differance in strength.....
