Well, I decided to go whole hog and jump into modding my 95 Riv. Here's what I have planned for the summer (in order)

2.5 inch SC pulley with 180 t-stat, plugs, etc
ZZ perf downpipe w/ cat
ZZ perf 3 inch resonated muffler in place of stock res
custom 3" single exhaust all the way back

KYB struts and bearings
Monroe shocks

Paint and delete the body side mouldings including those in bumper

6 spoke black/chrome wheels

I plan to do write ups on all of these. Also, I will do a baseline dyno run on a basically stock engine and then a dyno run after.

you MAY need some fabrication to the downpipe BUT i BET you COULD make it work if you custom install it

It will be nice to get some actual numbers if you do that dyno on it before and after... not as much stuff around here on the series I...

Anything will work with a little persuasion bonk . I may have to make my own flange to get it to bolt up to the stock manifold, but the entire exhaust will be replaced from the manifold back, making it easier to fab whatever I have to.
I'm hoping for gains of about 30-40HP after all is done.

Ordered my DP with cat and 3 inch Whisper muffler/resonator from ZZP today since my uncle sent me some cash yay
The guys at ZZP said they would give me a full refund, less shipping, if the DP wouldn't fit, but I think all I will have to do is make a weld-on adaptor to fit up to the stock manifold donut. I will probably cut of the ZZP flange and weld on whatever it takes to make the connection and keep the pipe clear of the sway bar.
It should be easy compared to a lot of the stuff I've done over the years. joker
