Looks sexy as always Phil!


ZephyrEFI: I believe joe dasilva welded in the crossmember brackets out of a mustang...?? I know the tails are custom mae by DaSilvas(a shop here in ontario)


Anyways I did do that to mine, I cut the brackets out of a late 80's stang and welded them in. For my cat back i used 2.5" LX mustang tails with tips. You need about 5" added in between the mufflers and the tails and then you will need tips atleast 7" long. I used Late Model restos hangers for a mustang. If you want, check out my cardomain, theres some pics of how it went together.

I remember reading something about DaSilva's shop in Super Ford Magazine a long time ago. Apparently, one of the brothers bought a 4-door 6-cyl 'mont for his wife to drive, and the other one got the bright idea to drop in a spare supercharged 302 when the first one wasn't lookin'. When it was in the magazine, it was purple.

How come my brother doesn't play tricks like that on me?

Never use a Gatling gun in the house.

Later,
Mike.

Hey Xander!


ZephyrEFI- I just put in a double hump crossmember from my donor 89 stang. I don't recall Joe Dasilva Re-welding in new brackets at all. And for the cat-back i'm using stock headers to a bbk h-pipe with 2 highflow cats to flowmaster 40's with flowtubes and as Revolution said the over axle part are stock lx pipes with extended and wider tips.

Cool. Maybe they had the wider mounts in there by '82.

Great car.
