yep. all work besides the machining and welding on my new muffler has been done by me and me only. i've had some guidance from friends but i'm the only one that's ever turned a wrench on my car.

Geeeeez. I'd be to afraid to mess with the internals myself. I can do the basics and then some, but messing with internals would scare me

trust me, it scared the crap out of me too haha. i had never taken an engine apart, let alone put one back together previous to this. but it's possible and to be honest, VERY easy. it's just like legos.
