I really dig it. We need a sound clip. I'm sure the double mufflers sound great.

I will let those who are better photographers help me out with some better pics and a clip.

Car is severely traction limited now. It's a much bigger difference than I imagined.

I like how that piping is routed... but with the canon brace I have it probably won't work for me :(




This is all I could find...? This gayness made me LOL.

We can always explore if this will fit with the cannon brace or not.

This is going to be a stupid question, but how or what is done to the rear bumper cover to make a matching formed cutout for the 2nd exhaust. I assume it isn't a new bumper or is it? I've never noticed one that looks to be a hack job.

It cuts easy with a variety of tools.

Yeah, I had it pictured differently in my head..been awhile since I had seen it. At least they were smart enough to make the pipe about equal length from the Y to each canister. I don't mind the canister style exhausts... but only on one side.

Do you heat it and bend the flange in so that it matches the original one or is it just not that noticeable?

Can I get a "straight on" pic please?

I didn't cut this one, the PO did. But the other car, I did not heat.

I'll have to get my official photographer to help us all out with pics.

Well I should have my camera with me when I come up this weekend. I planning to try and get some photos from Rotornuts build Friday. So at least something better until your official photographer is in the area.

Because the cans are too long for their inlet pipes to be able to bend and fit in. Plus SoCal f-tards like the loop thing; I've seen looped single exit exhausts on CR before.

Also because it it were done before, I wouldn't have wanted it.

My official photographer did his best in very limited time and 6 o'clock sunlight to get some more pics. This really seems to be a hard thing to do well.
This is the pic that doppleganger sent me, saying it was the exhaust best of the bunch.

Special thanks to doppleganger.
Double special thanks to Jenn for (hopefully) not killing doppleganger after being out later than promised.

Went to megameet at DIY Autotune and was lucky enough to weasel my non squirted car onto their new dyno. Their new dyno reads a little bit lower than the old dyno. But just like the old dyno and my old car, spool sucks compared to what actually happens on the street. 11 psi came 400-500 rpm late so my torque curve doesn't have as much area as it should. On the street I'd have 11psi by 3k rpm, but it didn't get 11 until about 3500 on the dyno. But the power numbers are pretty impressive (0% CF).

It was only a 2 pull, quick on, quick off, no datalogging type deal. I'm not complaining since it was only $20, but unfortunately I've got no telemetry to go with the graph. Be advised that the Y axis for torque and power are scaled differently.

Car made 11-12 psi total. A/F was overall pretty good 12:1 but maybe a pinch lean up top @ 12.5:1. I'd like to get it to 11.8:1 or so. All the tuning was done on the street by myself while Bryan (wildfire) drove for me. I've never been able to get Xede to datalog, and it certainly does not do any fuel autotuning. I have not really made any changes to the default spark map. I added a little bit overall (2 degrees if memory serves) because it looked super conservative, but that's it.

Several people got to hear the new exhaust and take rides. People riding in the chase car(s) got to see fireballs I'm told. Sometimes in the pipes, a couple times shooting out. Visible in the daytime no less. Wish we could get that on film!

based on the shape of the last 100 rpm, you would have been at 300 hp by redline.

wanna buy a used hydra?

Maybe so in theory, but with so many potential factors working against me (smallish intercooler, intake mani/tb, lack of tuning, stock ignition), I wouldn't expect the slope to stay constant. I would like to see what's up at 4800 rpm to flatten that tq up.

Tempting. I'm watching you adaptronic people to see how that pans out. I'm really giddy about running parallel and passing OBDII. I'm sure Matt is too, otherwise why deal with the hassle.
I've also been waiting for DIY Autotune to get to the MS solution for the NB... which I assume will be some version of MSII or MSIII, but I don't know if they're planning parallel or standalone. Knowing Jerry, it's probably standalone.

Matt, if you're semi-serious, you can shoot me a price and I'll stick it in my craw and chew on it.
