Default my 3" exhaust

i feel a lil bad posting pics of my exhaust after seeing what some other people have hanging from their cars but I think Tim's work of art deserves some acknowledgment.
  • it's stainless
  • it's 3"
  • it's got no muffler
  • yeah it's badass loud
  • and yeah it decreased spool and increased boost

this is the only pic i have at the moment (from a cell phone)



sorry suckers.

Simple is sexy. Does tim have an inhouse mandrel bender, cause that would be soo badass if he did. I need a muffler personally. Though that looks very light. Do i see a cat and resonator in there?

Sound clip possibly?

Thanks Paul

I do not have a mandrel bender, I just use J-bends cut with care. The block of wood in that picture is hiding a pretty tricky bend, and the ugly U-bolt clamp thing at the end of the pipe was just for support during fabbing, it's not there now.

It is silly loud...

Tim--you do good work dude. I wish we lived closer; I'd love an exhuast like that but with a Y where your 2nd to last bend is... oh, and some mufflers.

ive heard pauls exhaust plenty of times and i can hear him coming down the street. ive also been at autox's and known that he was there just by that awesome sound the exhaust makes. tim really did do a great job on it. tim does a lot of nice work.

Thanks everyone.

Paul, we are also still waiting on the tight radius 90. Not sure if we'll need it but I'd rather not start it and be forced to wait another day for it to arrive. It should be here any day now, I ordered it Monday of last week :(

I envy your suspension, and your exhaust + a muffler. Plus access to a lift, i've never had anything on one.

So are you saying your car is ragged out and you want to re-gift me your suspension and exhaust?

Does it make a difference if you support the car using the jack points or frame rails?

I ask because i plan to work with jackstands and would like to support he car at the correct points since it will be on them for a while.

I've seen crushed frame rails on miatas. But I've never crushed a rail...I guess lifting the car on 4 points using flat lifting surfaces distributes the load well enough, plus the frame rails are a little thicker at the ends.
