Re: EST DP and exhaust install (baxteR)

Why is it when the exhaust heats up it expands. The tips stick out about 5/8 of an inch further than when it is cold.

Re: (m3nt0s)

Thanks John. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif I never noticed it on other custom exhausts I have had in the past.

My TME setup does exactly the same thing. Never noticed it with the stock setup. I can only assume it has something to do with a higher flowing DP, and because more heat gets through the cat, the portion of the exhaust after the cat gets hotter and expands more? May also be a function of increased surface area as well? Anyway...sure sounds nice. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Thanks for all the pics, some good ones for reference in there.

It's something that the EST does. I've had mine on my R for ~10,000 miles now and the expansion doesn't seem to have changed despite running a Stage 2 tune and adding another 100-pound weight to my leadfoot.


I'm so jealous of you and your dad doing the whole R thing together. Super crazy awesome man!

Also, if you're feeling ballsy, here's a little before and after of my EST Resonator Delete:
Before:
After:

I've been emailing back and forth with Frank @ EST about the resonator delete...there may be product news in the future

Re: EST DP and exhaust install (baxteR)

baxteR -

I'm confused, on the EST website, they show what appears to be the Ferrita DP for sale (distinctive 3 point connection to exhaust)...



But that is NOT the EST DP you are showing installed. Do you have a new EST DP product they don't have up on their site? Details on whether it maintains 3" and what brand of cat in the DP?

Install looks great, I love the EST/BSR/Jetex exhaust (have a modified one myself).

thanks,

So does your EST exhaust have a center resonator?! from the pictures it looks like it does not....mine does...


Also, how did you manage to hang it up so high? My exhaust hangs pretty low in the area of rear axles...

Re: EST DP and exhaust install ("R" Kelly)

Kelly, I'm not to sure if it is a new style DP but it appears to have a smaller cat as well. Ours are a lot more perrrrrrrty.

Here is what they sent us.

Re: (tomedkaz)

No resonator Tom we had them remove them during the install. There is an adjustment bracket near the muffler, that may help.

Oh really? Thanks - i might have to do that.
So you're saying it is possible to raise it a bit?! Perfect.

Also, can you give me more info on the resonator delete? Did you weld a peice of pipe there or did you put flanges in place with the pipe, in case you wanted to put it back?

I beleive EST is now selling their own DP, I got one from them for my T5 a while back and was told at the time it was producted in Canada and not the Ferrita DP.

I could not be happier with the quality or fit so whoever they are using is doing nice work. Can't answer you other questions though

Re: (tomedkaz)

They welded a piece of stainless in place of the resonator. We will not be putting the resonators back in.

Re: EST DP and exhaust install (baxteR)

Baxter why are their 4 sets of tips?




The one thing I don't like about the EST cat-back is that the tips need to be longer so that you don't see the weld and plain steel pipe. I painted mind black which hides it somewhat but I think the Jetex tips are better in that respect.

With an after market DP you might start to throw DTC 0420 and if that happens get yourself one of these: http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAP...n%3D4



One more thing, get rid of those unsightly U-clamps, yuch! http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif
