That's a great question. That is actually the reasoning behind only doing from the down pipe back. Turbo manifolds can reach upwards of 1300 degrees fahrenheit. With the distance from the head to the end of the down pipe, it will cool enough to keep under the 1200 degree level. Those temps are pulled from most cars that are in time attack. The melting point of alumiunm is around 1220 degrees fahrenheit. With the thickness of this exhaust which is roughly 2mm it would actually need to be over 1150 degrees for it to distort. On most of the time attack cars that are running hard at a constant pace the heat range is 850-1000 degrees which is on stainless piping which does not dissipate heat as well as aluminum. So this should be in the safe zone even for time attack cars. I have plans on actually having these chrome ceramic coated to keep their shine and a clean look. The only con to this aluminum exhaust is that it is not as forgiving as stainless. If you slam this exhaust it will do some damage to it. We make sure that it is tucked as well as possible (this is tucked BETTER than ANY aftermarket exhaust for an Evo out there) so that lowered vehicles will not tear them up. They can take the abuse of everyday driving.

I heard this exhaust today in person while shooting a video clip of it. I was very impressed. Excellent work!

4n I have a 2g FWD DSM, and I am looking at getting an AWD swap done before I change anything about the exhaust.

I need to have my downpipe fixed (custom built with piecuts leaking at flex portion) and have a wb02 bung welded to it but I have a local guy for mild steel stuff he just doesnt do aluminum.

When I get ready for a aluminum exhaust I will hit you up. I don't know that there is a market for it in the DSM world with the prevalence of 2-300$ ebay exhausts, I've been trying to sell my Tanabe catback for a year now, and even at 200$ plus shipping no one wants it. But you could at least have a prototype design after I pay you to build mine.

The 2g awd swap is actually really easy. I have done quite a few, so if you have any questions, feel free to hit me up. If yours is a hardtop and not a convertible then it is even easier.

It is, I have a fairly good understanding of how to do it, the issue will be finding a 2g awd car for parts. The only thing I forsee needing help with is the exhaust hangers. I'm no welder. I tryed once and my beads look something attempted by Ray Charles.

I know there is a 2g talon shell on Craigslist but its auto, and the awd auto tranmissions are few and far between, and I believe this one is without trans. I'd take an auto shell over a manual because they hold power better, but as I said, pretty rare.

Don't feel bad mine were the same way when I bought my first TIG. They looked like poo. It has gotten much better now ;-)

How about a video clip instead?



It's a little deeper in tone than in this video, but it sounds really great.

Sorry Samir, the cold finally got to me. We will get the audio of a fly by next time for sure though. Hopefully I'll have my downpipe then too
