Part II

Yesterday I just got the exchanger nuts off. Today I pulled the bumper, muffler, then dropped the entire system as a unit. Looks empty underneath now:

Inspected the exhaust ports and everything looks pretty uniform (whitish color) between the cylinders, and no serious ugliness that I can see. I did notice a little area of wetness on the #6 valve which I am curious about...wasn't really ugly though...

Here's the latest addition to my boneyard:

And speaking of ugliness, this is not pretty, but I knew about it when I bought the car. Its been getting worse though:

Now this I was not aware perhaps, but very ugly:

Next up, remove turbo. Then I get to bolt it all back together with the new stuff.

I want to chase out the threads before I install the new exhaust studs. Anyone know what size tap I will need?
