Re: stainless steel muffler (aftermarket)


A few questions for any one of the parents of twins:

How much of your system is stainess steel ?

Muffler - resonators ? - tips ? What about the "pipes" - are they regular of heavier guage steel ??

Jalal mentioned a 10 year warranty - is that just on the muffler / resonators ?

Thanks = Roger

Hi Roger,

The whole set-up is stainless steel, however, the muffler, 2 resonators and 2 tips are shiny/polished stainless steel while the pipe itself isn't.

10 Warranty applies on the whole "twins" set-up.

I think you would pay less if you choose to have the resonators in standard (un-polished stainless steel)

G'day exhaust junkies,
Apart from everyone that wants a dual exhaust Im still waiting for someone to do the hard yards and put a single muffler onto existing piping or a complete single system that does not drone.

Hi Dave,

I think the problem with the single muffler mod is the factory resonators.

For a single muffler mod to be quiet you gonna need to upgrade the resonators too and since you're doing that, you might as well replace the whole pipe coming to a single muffler pipe (with double or single outlet)

I'm not even sure that the twin set-up would work and sound nicely if connected to the factory resonators. I think it'll sound too loud.

OK Boyz,

I have just received a phone call from Hi-Tech Mufflers stating that the "twins" kit for the exy (with no towbar) is READY for mass orders and shipments (either interstate or overseas).

The price will obviously be less than $880 as it will not include fitting, but the price will include shipping costs.

Hi-Tech are asking for another volunteer (from Sydney) who has an exy with a tow-bar to do a second template, so if you're interested in taking advantage of a cool mod at a reduced price, please let me know and I will put you in touch with the owner.

Next Monday, the 1st template will be fitted to one of our members who initially took-up the first offer and I believe we gonna see some pics PLUS dyno results emoticon

No problems Paul,

I will announce the availability of the 2nd twin kit here just like I did above for the 1st kit.

Orders can either be placed with Hi-Tech Mufflers direct or we can organise a list of those interested here and I'll do the leg work with Hi-Tech.

Please note that I'm not affiliated with Hi-Tech in anyway, nor do I receive any commissions/kick-backs for organising this or keeping you guys up to date.

It is as simple as a mate looking after his mates who share the same passion and I consider every member of this forum a mate of mine emoticon

Hi-Tech has kindly extended their support to our forum and I have welcomed their offer which in turn will benefit members of this forum who want to have this mod done.

Back on topic: Any of the Sydney xtrailers with a tow-bar interested in this? P.S. This mod is insurance approvable by the way emoticon

Re: stainless steel muffler (aftermarket)


Hi all
I'm just wondering why on the exhaust system the welds are painted black if the system is stainless there would be no reason to paint them black as they should be using stainless rods or mig wire. If they are using steel mig on stainless I'm pretty confident that the 10yr warranty would not last with beach driving as I find this is the first thing to rust on a normal system, just food for thought.

Dave,

This was a question I also asked them when they were spraying mine emoticon

The answer was as simple as hiding the welding points, but a bad choice of spray paint. They could have used silver paint instead.

The ready made kit will only have 2 welding points at the tip, the rest is bolt on (this what I believe anyway)

In any case, should anything happen (rust or otherwise) this set-up is covered by their 10 year warranty and they have in this business long enough to know that.
