Re: stainless steel muffler (aftermarket)


Hi all,
I have just fitted a single mirror finish stainless steel muffler today (Magnaflow) it has a baffle in it as the straight through type always produced a drone This was done at FJ Mufflers in Newcastle very happy with power gain and exhaust note in all rev ranges
This is an alternative to the twin setup and for $285.00 fitted very affordable the tip if required is seperate they range from $45 to $85 It has taken 4 mufflers to find the right one hope this helps someone who may not have been able to afford the twin system.
Cheers Dave

Good stuff Dave.

As always, a nice pic can tell a thousand words emoticon

PS: I have seen some pics of a straight through muffler on the Magnaflow website.

I just hope yours doesn't sound like that Subaru there. hehehe "just kidding"

Hi Dave,

do you have any pics showing the installed muffler? How much more clearance than the standard? Is it as quiet as the original?

This is it no more trial and error the muffler at its lowest point sits 25cm from the ground and the pipe work that comes under the diff is the same height as before I will have to look up which link to use as my pictureses are way to big

Re: stainless steel muffler (aftermarket)


Guys,
 I have my exee booked in for a twin setup, but to save costs, they said I can move the EVAP cannister myself. (Is found on the passenger side and will get in the way of the LHS dual exhaust outlet). Has anyone done this move, or could someone who has a twin setup take a quick pic for me to use as a guide. Any help would be appreciated. I have looked at the manual and it doesn't help at all. How do you remove the damn thing in the first place !!!

Thanks in advance

Hi Brett,

If it's Hi-Tech that is doing the mod for you, then they know the way to go around the fuel evap canister without the need for you to move it.

They have done exactly the same job for Noel's exy and mine and we didn't have to move the canister at all.

Mine was the first exy to be done with a towbar and when they looked at the canister, they freaked-out too, but then managed to go around it.

Have a look at the pics I posted and ask them to follow the exact same route and set-up on that side.

It can be done.

I also tried moving the canister, but there is no way and nowhere to move it, because it has metal/solid tubing going into the fuel tank, so don't risk twisting it and breaking any of these fuel lines.

If they're unable to work-out how it is done, ask them to call Lambros at Darlinghurst and he'll tell them what to do.

Jalal,
 Sorry, I have gone against the grain and not gone to Hi-Tech. A place in Orange has been doing the same fitout, and for a great price of $400. Saving money by only using stainless steel for the muffler and end pipes. 2 1/2 inch pipe throughout. I will post pics on the weekend.

No worries Brett, in this case I can only help you with the pics I have already posted and which you can print and show them.

Hopefully they can figure it out emoticon

BTW, am not sure if you have seen the photos am talking about.

Have a look at the location of the canister in these 2 pics and the way they got the pipe around it.

Re: stainless steel muffler (aftermarket)


Out of curiosity Jalal, what size diameter pipe did Lambros use for the exhaust?

Apologies if you've already posted it (feel free to just tell me the page number in this thread and I'll go and re-read it)
