UPDATE: A short video on page 3

Hey gang,
I just took my R from the exhaust shop today. My dual side exhaust project is finished with a great success. I was not easy to modify the right exhaust piece to match the factory one but with a litle more patience and handy work I got it done. The exhaust I got is a 3" pipe with a resonator which splits to 2.5" pipes right before the tips. That as you can guess is a loud exhaust, probably as loud as the SVR one, which had the same setup. I don't know who makes the tips but they are perfect for the R.
I love the sound and that is what I was looking for.
Next month I am palnning on installing my IPD DP, software, Track spec sways and ss brake lines. I already did the upper engine mount bushing and lower transmision mount. My goal is 400HP and that will get me pretty close.

Here are some pictures, enjoy!










This is my piece, which is pretty close the factory one

Re: Dual side exhaust w/ factory body kit (EAX)

Just about the nicest looking dual I've seen on a factory kit. And the twin pipes give better clearance and are less likely to cause overheating of the Haldex unit. :thumbsup:

Be interested to see a rear shot from about 8 feet back to see what the twin pipes looking like coming under the axle.

The design is simple and elegant. Should promote free flow. And the tips look smokin' hot. I second the motion for a sound clip!

steal! looks like the only thing aesthetically you're missing now are the tail lights. i guess thats minor in comparison to the other mods you're looking to do.

Re: Dual side exhaust w/ factory body kit (EAX)

I was thinking about doing the dual exhaust myself. I wanted to take the factory driver's side exhaust part and 3D scan it, resurface the scan data and then flip the data on the Y-Axis for the passenger side exhaust part, have the re-surfaced data get made in a rapid prototype machine. Looks ok by hand, but if you look carefully, the passneger side version you made for the hole is a bit smaller than the factory original. And the high light has a wavey look at the top. Sorry I am anal, but I surface for a living and I can pick out the imperfections. I look at surface data .001 of a milli-meter all day long.

FYI, To all of you that did not ever notice, the 2004 S60 R rear bumper sport kit, if you look close, there are 3 slight bumps that Volvo screwed up on. That is why for 2005 on up, they realized their mistake and re-surfaced the lower part of the rear sport bumper, took out the 3 bumps. And that is why, if you look up the part numbers for 2004 and 2005 they are different. Just my obervations.

I know buddy, it is kind of hard to bend that plastic perfectly the way you want it by hand. It think it came up pretty good but not perfect. You have to really scrutinize the car to notice it. You DO have a good eye!

Plus I don't have access to a fency 3D modeling equipment like you do

looks good...i think you should have had your custom exhaust piece painted off the car...since it's now permanently attached with paint to the rest of the car...and hopefully does not move EVER since it's gonna take the paint off your bumper with it.

Hey, it's not just him. Those three bumps bothered me from the time I got the car. I just figured that volvo must have designed them in for some strange reason.

Any chance that you'll make another piece or possibly reproduce to sell?
I'd definitely be interested.

BTW... what exhaust is that?

Nice work EAX http://********************/smile/emthup.gif .

Those tips are Magnaflow manufactured as single pieces and where nicely placed in a staggered position. At least I think that's it because they look the same as mine
