Re: ed 5 ltr sleeper

I know that on an I6 a full exhaust is roughly $350 so id say $400 or so on an 8. I Have been told that lukey exhausts aren't as good and that pacemakers are the way to go :D

Re: ed 5 ltr sleeper

go the pacemakers, they won't leave you with much change from $700 tho. i've got them in mine with a dual 2.5 custom system with high flow cats and sports mufflers dumping at the diff. great sound

Re: ed 5 ltr sleeper

Nice work tommo74

Just remember that 3" on a stock 5.0 might be slightly overkill (lack of low-down torque from bigger pipe)

Then again I've done similar, I bought pacemakers, new (not high flow) flanged cats, twin 2.5" piping leading into single 3" pipe, with a single deep offset muffler. Sounds meaty, is quiet on idle and fkn loud when you sink the boot!

Here's a small clip of my exhaust Rename the .txt extension to .3gp

You need Quicktime to run .3gp movies

Re: ed 5 ltr sleeper

Oh! I see you have GT40P heads already! I assumed you had a pretty much standard engine. Yes, I did the same when I got my exhaust, even though it is a little large for the 5.0 at the moment, it'll match it fine once I get my own GT40Ps + other power adders

Do you still have the HO manifold? If so, this will be a choke point and your heads won't be flowing to their full potential, so a larger intake manifold set such as Explorers off an AU or aftermarket ones (aftermarket are better for a hot N/A setup I think, but anyone else reading this feel free to correct me)

Also, a 65-70mm MAF and a 65mm t/b would be good too if you don't already have those :D

Re: ed 5 ltr sleeper

I think a mod should merge these threads (please), there are like 3 that have morphed into the same subject!

Umm, what can I say... The standard HO manifold would mean you're not getting anything out of your GT40Ps or much out of your exhaust. My EB will probably be able to keep up with your ED (despite E7 heads) because your HO simply isn't allowing your GT40Ps for flow to their full potential. If you're keen and take pull your t/b away from your HO, you can measure the internal diameter of it. The HO has like a 55mm ID. I have a 65mm t/b mated to my 55mm HO, so I don't get the full potential of the t/b. I do however get greater responsiveness due to the butterfly opening/closing just as quickly as the standard t/b, but it allows more flow due to having a larger ID.

I'll post up a pic showing the differences between the standard MAF and a 70mm one (my old & new ones)

Maybe posting in the Windsor section (or maybe a mod can merge these threads & move the single uber thread to the Windsor section ) will get you more attention for your questions. Coz not all the Windsor guys look in the E-series section, especially since the vast majority of E-series owners have I6s.

If you make a new thread in the Windsor section, do 3 things:

1) State what you know your ED has
2) state what you want to have done to your ED (and ask how to go about doing this)
3) make links to your other threads, and ask mods to possibly merge your threads to make life easier for everyone on the forums

Despite my advice to make another thread: Don't get all thread happy though!

One last bit of contradicting advice: maybe posting in the Superchargers/Turbos/NOS section???
