Re: stainless steel muffler (aftermarket)


Sorry Rich,

I think I overlooked mentioning this piece of information earlier. Thanks for reminding me.

Lambros used 2" (diameter) size pipe to match the factory one.

My assumption (and am not sure about that) is that larger diameter pipe would make the set-up noisier and will require larger resonators and muffler to muffle down the sound and that could be the reason why the factory pipe was matched in size by Hi-Tech.

posticon Re: stainless steel muffler (aftermarket)


Jalal,
 To answer your question. An 'exhaust jack', can be best described as a device that is pumped up using exhaust gas/pressure to raise the vehicle. It is fitted under the car flat, and when connected to your exhaust, it fills up like a massive beach ball, rising the car off the ground. Extremely useful when stuck in the sand, or dirt and a normal jack will not surfice. I have an ARB Exhaust Jack and it is always packed when I hit the beach.

 Now for the main reason for this.... I am now to proud owner of a set of 'TWINS'. Has to be the best $400 I have ever spent. I took some before and after measurements of the rear muffler, off the ground. Before: 24cm clearance. After: 31cm. The main 2 1/4 inch pipe also sits nice and high and is painted a matt black, looks great. The end pipes are 3 inch outlets in chrome.

 As for the common topic relating to an increase in fuel consumption after this fitment, I have spoken to Dwaine of Hi-Tech at Bathurst and he finds this hard to believe also. It should, in theory, run more relaxed and return a better fuel economy figure. I have just done a run to Newcastle on the weekend and recorded the fuel use. I have to go back mid January, so I will report back with a comparision.

 I will include some pics when I get the BFG's fitted tomorrow.

 Thanks for the info on the 'twins'. Much appreciated

Maybe he now has to modify his exhaust jack so it has two inlet tubes so it can fill up twice as fast emoticon

Re: stainless steel muffler (aftermarket)


I changed the tubing from Steel to Stainless Steel with mandrel bends yesterday. As I was not happy the workmanship.
After spending the day welding and polishing I am very happy with the overall muffler asthetics. The cook likes it as well.

Fitted the new exhaust system. Gives a slight 'growl', which is starting to turn heads already. The ground clearance at the muffler has been increased from 24cm to 33cm since the improvement. My set-up is a straight through 2 1/4 inch pipe, with dual 2 1/2 inch chrome end pipes. Price: $410.
