exhaust issues

whats the best setup?? this has been long debated by many....

I like the pacesetter from what ive seen but ive heard that its not all that hot. the price is awesome though

i have a dump valve on my floor i am debating install on. i wasnt as impressed with it as i thought i would be when my friend put his in, but it was nice nonetheless. i think im just afraid it may start leaking in the future.

Ported heads redesigned combustion chamber, headers, custom y-pipe, and 3 inch to the back. That's the way to do it. You could probably have a shop do the y-pipe and exhaust to the back for under $300 with some good quality aluminized tubing.

The heads and headers... well you are on your own there.

I would say that with a high flow cat you should be fine...

Either of those cats are good, they are both high flow and stainless steel.

3 inch exhaust is ok if you plan on extreme horsepower, otherwise a 2.5" exhaust is good, and you still maintain some low end torque.

The best possible exhaust setup for a "V" engine is to have a separate pipe for each header going out as duals to the back. With a pipe connecting them making an "H", where the top of the H is where the headers go into the exhaust, and the bottom of the H is the exhaust tips. The pipe in the middle equalizes pressure and is known as the best way to increase horsepower in an exhaust system of a "V" engine. Obviously you could not do this with a 4-cylinder.

The only concern with H pipes is ground clearance.

Wink

hey caliguy i say go with custom 2.5 inch pipes from the cat to the muffler it would be cheaper too and you can use clamps instead of welding the thing together so you can use a straight pipe at the track
