That is a truly sweet setup, it looks great and i bet the gains are substantial, being that its a true dual setup. What was the damage? I didnt really want to do any exhaust stuff because in the end its just one pipe, but this true dual setup is reallly catching my interest.

I'm curious about the following:

Where are your cats? I think I see a pair of resonators where the old one was.
Why did the installer determine that you needed those expansion joints? I know the stock setup has one but never figured out why it was needed when the exhaust hangers could take up the slack for any expansion.
Can you post a sound clip?
Why does it look like there is a yellow fungus attacking your drain plug?
Before and after dyno results?

I couldn't figure out why he wouldn't respond to the questions people were asking.
Then I realized the twenty q's were all asked in the last 8 hours.

BTW, looks delicious.

Truly a work of art!! nice!!

I don't see the point having the rear block j-pipe turn forward then make a 180' deg turn like that. It could have just took a 90' deg turn slightly angled downward into the flex pipe. The turn radius would not have been worse either.

The reason why the initial j-pipe had a weird twist and turn was to have both j-pipes from both engine exhaust manifolds at the same length before they merged together.
With a true dual setup this is no longer an issue.

What pipe sizes are those .. 2"?

Hmm .. anyway .. still a sweet setup! Can't wait for dyno's!

Well..

Sick6speed can't get online right now, so I guess he will have to naswer you guy's question later.. I just helped him to post pix..

Edit: I got some PM asking me about JPipe and such..... IT IS NOT MINE!!..


Some answer I know.. but not 100% sure..
1. There will only be an after dyno, he didn't get a dyno before hand.. dyno should come sometime next week I think..
2. there is no cat.. only pre-muffler
3. the reason one pipe still goes around 180% was said cuz there was no clearance for it to go 90% or something.. not too sure..

J-pipes

First off, I am really happy that all of you like what I have done! I think that it came out great. The craftsmanship is there and the design enginering is there too! I had this done at Labree Motorsports in Canoga Park. They fabricate all kinds of special systems. I have seen some of there work and it always looks amazing. They really put a lot of time and thought in what they do. He came up with the idea of a full true dual exhaust system, because of course I was asking him about making me a custom j-pipe. Of course I agreed on the crazy idea. The install began and it took four days. Let me start off with the cats, the two on the manifolds were left intact. Removing them would cause some CEL's. Which nobody wants. The third one underneath the car with no o2 sensor was ditched. Which I had the high flow one from e-bay. (Hint Hint!) The tubes off each cat on both sides of the v6 are 2.5 inches and they are equal lenth runners to the flex joint. The reason why one is really angled is because the flange off the cat has the studs in a position that will not let you go straight back with the down pipe. There would be no way to get it off and on and it wouldn't be equal length. So he had to make it like the factory angled one which I think came out beautifully. He used flex joints in the system so it would handle all the abuse I could give it. Then ran 2 1/4" inch pipe from the fllex joints down to the resonators and to the exhaust mufflers. It was all ceramic coated as well. Whew! I am running the Tanabe TUN404's for the mufflers and they look and sound real good. As for the sound. I think that it is way to loud but the performance definetly makes up for it! As for the performance gain I am sorry that I didn't do a before and after dyno but I will be doing a tuning session soon with the car and will post it asap. It feels way more responsive in the mid to upper end of the rpm is CRAZY. I did lose a little low end but nothing bad. I am way intrested to in finding out what this car can put down. Oh! as for the price it wasn't to steep, but he is also my buddy so, I got the good buddy discount! It came to 750 with no mufflers. He might kill me for saying this! Anyways i will keep you all updated! Let me know if you have anymore questions??? I will see everybody at the J-town show, Come on evrybody lets GO!

Good lord get me a towel, im drooling all over the place! I must agree with everyone, the fabrication is beautiful. All we need is the dyno and I think everyone will be running to their local shops for a similar mod!!
