    its got alot of hail damage, its running an open downpipe and that is the only exhaust i have, lots of random wires leading to god knows where, drivers window doesnt like to go up, likes to drop to a really low rpm when i com to a stop and then it goes back to regular 750 rpm idle. i traded a rusted out 83 celica supra for it haha

    I know that feeling... I paid 400$ for mine. As far as the window thing, mine had the same problem and the switch had worn out. I took the harness out, rewired it so that the rarely used and functioning passenger switch controlled the drivers side window, and disconnected the passenger regulator. Works great now.

    Let me know if you need any parts off an 89 MX6 GT. I'll be stripping and crushing one in the next month. :)

    Ehhh... maybe, but i live in Indianapolis, so that might be a bit rough, logistically.

    I heard of this new company... I think they are called United Parcel Service (or something similar). Anyhow, get this... you give them some money, and they will bring something anywhere in the country for you! How wild is that??? Sure beats the old days when you had to load up your cart and buggy and deliver things yourself!

    :D

    Right, but i kinda doubt that messing with an exhaust off a crusty 23-24 year old MX6 is worth hacking up and shipping. :lol:

    so do you modify the stock downpipe? or kinda make a whole new setup

    You could just cut the flange off the stock downpipe and go from there i suppose...

    If you get on PerformanceProbe, though... there's a dude making some really nice downpipes for a reasonable price for stock/tbird hybrid turbos. From there it's just a matter of getting the rest of the exhaust done at the shop of your choice.


    Mine doesn't run a stock turbo, and the turbo is big enough that running a true downpipe was next to impossible in 3" size, so... this was way easier.
