    Fabbing ORY

    When I put this thing together, how much spacing do I need from the floorboard for the ORY so I don't have any vibrations from the pipe?

    i suggest doing a mock-up once your headers are in to check it out. get it where you want and tack it up. Check you clearance and then go from there. On average you probably want about an inch clearance but dont quote me on that. All depends on your diameter pipe and your ride height as well. Good luck

    I don't remember, did you have a tsp ORY? I used a jack for the bottom and a small piece of wood on top to set mine where I wanted before tightening down.

    Yes, I got the TSP ORY, I place it about an inch, inch and a half. I still get a little slap but not to much. I saw on WS6 store that they have a bracket to help stop the slap for around $50. I have to wait a bit but I think that is what I'm going to get to stop the slap. As far as that brace that was left off I'm getting some square tubing and I am going to fab a spacer. I think that brace keeps the car from twisting when WOT. It would suck to twist the body. When i get this done I'll shoot a couple of pics and post.


    Also I think on another thread I mention about the Pacesetter header bolts had something wrong with the length. TSP wrote me back. They have forward the info/pic to Pacesetter. It seems Pacesetter did an update to their bolts. Seems someone forgot to look at the OEM's. Hopefully I have a hand in a change.
