I'm looking for a downpipe for a 93 ES N/A. I've looked all over the net for days and all I can find are ones for the TT stealth and VR4. Will these work for a N/A also? Or does anyone know where I can get one?
mph unlimited has one for california spec n/a's and I believe they are making one for the rest of 3si n/a's. try a search on the forum, there is a thread about that. If that doeasn't work you can get one custom made.
I talked to the guy who owns the shop, he told me to stop in on Monday morning so he can get a good look at the pipe and give me an estimate on what they would cost. Now my question is, what size do we want? What gauge? Stainless? Aluminium? I really know very little about exhaust materials and If I'm going to get the ball rolling on this I want to make sure that everyone is happy with the product. Any feedback would be helpful.
You'd want something like Aluminized steel at a minimum, Stailess steel would be great. Aluminum probably isn't the best idea.
If you can get something that is 2.5" made of Stainless or Aluminized steel with Mandrel bending, that'd be awsome. I doub the Mandrel bending part, it'd probably be kind of expensive then. As little bends as possible is what you want...
Good luck and I'll buy one for my NA if you can get a good price!
heck the other guy wanted $400 for his!! that is more than a lot of the TT downpipes! Get something in the $100 range and it'd be a REAL good seller...
The downpipe is the exhaust pipe that goes from the manifolds down to the cat, by increasing the diameter and forming a Y instead of the F like the stock one you get better exhaust flow. Especially if you already have a cat-back system installed. There was an old thread where someone was making one for like 400$ I'm going to try to get them made for us for 100$ or less. The old thread claimed to have increases of 25 horse and 25 ft/lbs of torque. I really have no clue what the actual gains would be but we should see something due to the better exhaust flow.
I'll be speaking to the guy on Monday and I'd like to get a tentative list of people who would be intrested so that I can take it to him and show him how much he could benefit from making these for us N/A drivers. This place is a small custom exhaust shop here in Youngstown, Ohio and he did a really good job on fabricating my cat-back system. They bent the pipe themselves and I got it for $180 installed with a VORTEX muffler. Not the best muffler in the world but they used 3" from the cat back and did a really good job with it. so If we could get a list going of people who would definately buy one it would really help. If anyone has any questions you can e-mail me at [email protected].
