Well over half way there. Didn’t quite make it as far as I wanted.. I’m on the outskirts of Salt Lake City. I wanted to be on the WY side of the border, but we had some hiccups.
The exhaust pipe is cracked nearly in half at the manifold. I think I can make it to Denver with the exhaust pipe partially secured and strapped, but it means I functionally don’t have a working muffler at all now. Also, the crack seems to have happened at a sensor, so I suspect I’m not getting full fuel economy now. I tried to apply a muffler patch to the break, but it didn’t last very long. I may need to try the same technique once I can leave the patch in place overnight to allow for it to cure properly.
So I made it this far. Only about 500-ish miles to go. One day’s hard drive..
