You guys don't miss much, do you!

When I replaced the 3LDZ with a 7200 type, it pushed the muffler about 15mm to the right which made it hit the body (top right of muffler in first pic above).
To get some clearance back, I had to cut 15mm out of the the muffler inlet pipe (note the weld). Then to get proper access to that bottom bolt, I had to sacrifice half a horsepower and put a dent in the pipe.
1988 Carrera - 3.6 engine (with ITBs, COPs, MS3X) and a whole set of turbo body panels waiting in the attic.
Day job ...
