    Torque Arm is what connects your rear to your transmission.. and pan hard bar connects the rear to the car...

    310, I just did an X-pipe on a 96 GT w/ a bud of mine over the weekend. It took us 6 hours!!!!!!!!!!

    I hate it when people want to mod their car but don't ever take the time to maintain it! The bolts to the manifold were stripped and I don't know how they ever sealed and the cat-back was all bent up which prevented the X-pipe from fitting!

    So we cut off the manifold studs and welded new ones on! Of course after the cust. approved of our ritg!
