Let me know if you need any measurements from the EST DP- it hasn't been installed yet.The AWD DP's are TOO expensive. I will be fabbing up my own in January. No plans to sell a copy but I will post up some results.
will this custom DP pass emissions? I know it matters by state. anyone in WA know? lolLet me know if you need any measurements from the EST DP- it hasn't been installed yet.
I also think the DP is expensive, but after talking with several performance shops in Denver, I was left with the impression that a custom piece would cost as much or more than a pre-fab. However, after seeing the DP in person, I don't think that's necessarily true. Construction is pretty simple- only 2 bends in the DP and one of those is at the end.
$70 for the pipe
$28 for the turbo flange
Can't find an exhaust flange, but figure another ~$28 for that
$120 for a 200 cell cat
$37 for a 6" flex pipe
~$50 for exhaust hangers, gaskets, O2 bungs/spacer, and mounting hardware
Parts alone will cost ~$210-$330 (catted vs catless). Seems the real savings come with the labor costs. If you can weld, great, you saved $300+. If not, savings aren't as high, but still cheaper than buying a prefab.
Full turboback exhaust on the floor assembled as it was in the car: (AWD) 05' T5 Aw55
Cool, thanks. I read through that thread earlier....good stuff.I know at least one person has tried to fit a FWD catback onto an AWD. http://forums.swedespeed.com/showthread.php?201980-OBX-exhaust-T5-AWD-what-wont-fit
here are some references/pictures of the entire awd exhaust laid out on my garage floor.
i would like to see if you guys could fab up an AWD DP. I may have a turbo flange to sell if anyone would want it... i still have the original DP in my garage.
That is the same one I was thinking about ordering and cutting up.Too much. Plenty for $120, example:
