Any recommendations for an exhaust shop? Preferably on the westside. Also looking for a drivers side tie rod assembly for a 1968 144. This would be the '67 to mid '68 version with the smaller stud diameter.

There's a few in here: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=4237

I'd recommend the Simons sport system from Skandix, but it seems they don't have any on this continent so it costs $500 to get one over here... I ordered one for a customer. It's what I had on my car and I loved it, fit like factory, worked better than factory, sounded great.

If the Simon's system is of interest contact iroll motors http://www.irollmotors.com. Mike sells their systems for 122 & 1800 cars & might be able to hook you up with a better price.

I recommend it be of interest! The reason this one was so expensive is because of shipping, though, not because the kit itself is really that expensive. Definitely worth checking it out, in my opinion!

I've had Bob at Exhaust Specialties off Highway 8 in Beaverton do 3 exhausts for me now. Two on 145's, and one 242 system. He does really good work, every system has passed a pretty thorough inspection on my part afterwards. Everything was well spaced, over and under axle requests, and great beads. He accomidates custom requests very well. Systems were running me $500 from the header back, including two Magnaflow mufflers.

I highly recommend him.

Nice, nice. Is the system fully welded or are you able to disassemble if need be for repairs/replacement in the future? Are the pipes crush bent?

Also, what diameter piping did you go with on the 242? Let's get that baby dialed in!

You asked for westside companies, but George's Sandy Muffler 1.5 miles east of beautiful downtown Sandy did a 2.5" system for my 122 coupe that is to die for. The price was very good, the quality was awe inspiring and they backed it up when a leak developed for some reason. I don't have a shot of the whole system, but the photo is from the 4 tube header back to the axle. They went up and over the axle with the big tube in a way that gave plenty of clearance. It was a very good addition to the car. I would think that it would be worth the drive to have them do the work. The photo doesn't want to rotate correctly so I apologize for the neck breaker.

^^^ + One. Can't speak for my 240, but they did a full cat back on my Xterra over a year ago. Great quality, and sounds even better!

Travzilla, were you talking about the Exhaust Specialties shop or George's in Sandy?
