Nice jack pads for your GT. Fits perfectly in the holes up front, no modification needed. For the rear jack points that are threaded, I'm going to cut off the nipple, (I know, tragic), and add threaded inserts.

have seen these as low as $12.99 on Amazon

I am so, so careful in how I jack my cars... and I think the whole matter of the corrosion protection system damage that can ensue with haphazard jacking is overlooked.

Kudos, timado404, with regards to this find!

Fit is great, and plenty of room to place a jack stand in the process.

Thanks for the pics! Nubie question (Just purchased my Granturismo ;)) - where is the optimal place for the jack stand? I'm going to purchase these jack pads.. but when I lift the front, where can I place the stand so I can move the jack to the otherside/back, etc.

Thanks!

Hi Chris,
I started the install today, got the passenger side jacked up pretty good and on stands. The issue though is, the bottom of my car has the plastic under carriage on the entire bottom, there are probably 40bolts holding it up, i counted 18 on the passenger side alone. To get his entire undercarriage off, I'll have to jack up the other side as well and squeeze under, i can imagine getting it back on will be a major PITA solo, I can get some help but I'm leaning towards bringing it to a shop that has it jacked higher and can do it saving me the hassle..im guessing itll cost around $200 for the whole job, to me thats worth the hassle of taking off/on the under carriage then the hassle of removing the factory pipe.

I'm a little bummed honestly..:(

Based on all the videos i've seen nobody had this on there, it looks like the pipes were exposed and ready to bolt off thats what i was expecting

I don't see a way to remove just an exhaust piece, looks like 1 large piece

@xDennis what precise model variant (and year) is your car? Not seen the underside like that before but I have an idea why

Because it's a convertible??? :unsure:
No because it's a late MC with (I think the centre exit exhaust?) which may need a different X-pipe. Certainly that is a different under tray from any car I've seen which would probably be a function of the age.

@xDennis is it the exhaust in the centre a la Euro Stradale? Eurospares should be able to confirm if the OEM centre muffler is interchangeable on the earlier ones, and thus, if your un-silenced unit will fit

Although it looks like the other join is under that plastic:


228235 appears to be universal so your first job will be the undertray. However, I reserve the right to be totally wrong

From what I've seen, and can tell the xpipe is the same and will still lead to the center exhaust. I just have to remove the undertray. This gives me a good excuse to purchase a power socket LOL, I may tinker around with it today.

I'm wondering if the undertray is part of the aero kit option?
