Question Zorst question

Its now time to replace my exhust, as the one i have is rusted to the sh!thouse. so i want to put something decent in while im at it, although really not suited for this car, i dont care.

Whats the maximum size pipes recomended for the 5l efi v8?
is it possible to have 2 pipes running to the back without combining into one? I would like to buy exctractors aswell.

i dont want it to be insainly loud, just want more performance, and to actually be able to hear the engine.


Best wishes

You may be able to fit 2 pipes but they would still have to come out the right hand side as the tank is on the left

Hi,

You should be able to fit twin 2.5" no probs. You can just squeeze a single 3" in too.

If money isnt a problem, go for a mandrel bent exhaust (single peice bent on mandrel bender, as opposed to mandrel bends welded to straight pipes.)

Extractors... go for pacemaker or genie.

If you are planning on doing any head work get big bore extractors (1 & 5/8 or 1 & 3/4 primaries), otherwise 1.5" primaries will do the job.

money's not a problem, as my brother is good friends with a guy that owns an exhaust shop. got a full 2.5" system on my EF for $100

so its quite acceptable to have a 3" single pipe going back from a Y peice, cats, and extractors?

what diameter would the 2 pipes have to be on the Y peice? or should i just use the one thats on there?


the cats are pretty expencive arent they? i wouldnt get them for free unfortunatly.

Best wishes
