Well im going to ring fat pipes tomorrow to go ahead with booking it in for the full exhaust setup this week. Going to sell of the S13 just sitting in my drive way gaining dust, Then ill look at getting everything done quick fast.


If it's in good condition you could make some decent cash off the S13 because they're actually quite rare nowadays.

It's a N/A, All runs perfect had it full checked out and had payed to get every little minor thing fixed. It had a home job respray which looks good, though up close there is a few little running lines. But yea, Will pretty much pay for everything for me... Just need the right person to buy it.

Yea those prices are to Atomics website.

Also as to the S13, Needs 2 new front tyres for RWC, Car owes me about 7k. Sick of spending money on it so getting rid of it as is. Bare in mind it is a N/A due to im only a P Plater, So with what these cars bring $$ value, Not really keen on spending more money. There is a small crack in the corner of the windscreen down the bottom, Not visible from inside. Fat pipes recons it won't intefear with a RWC cos it can't get any bigger as it goes from one edge to the other about 5cm longer.

I have it posted here at boostcruising http://www.boostcruising.com/forums/ind ... pic=655643

Its a SR20DE

Why ask the same question again?
I dont think the guy knows what he is talking about. I probably wouldnt want him doing my exhaust. Why would he offer you a MORE restrictive exhaust when you asked for a LESS restrictive system. He would be costing you power and wasted money if you want to pull some bigger 200kw+ numbers. I would take that offer as its not a bad price for a custom system. What extractors, cat and exhaust did he offer you? Brand, model, cpsi, is the cat 3"? How many mufflers? When you step up from 2.5" to 3" it gets a LOT louder. Iv got a 2.5" single muffler and 200cpsi cat and its pretty loud. 3" probably want at least 2 mufflers to try and keep the noise down a bit...

Cheers

Sam

Hey mate, Thanks for your feedback i figured i was on the right track... But to have the "Professionals" tell me i'm wrong just made me need support. So ill go the 3", Its Pacemakers Headers 4490's, 3" Redback High Flow Cat, 3" Custom Mandrel Bent Exhaust with Front and Rear mufflers.

Car is booked in tomorrow, Get extractors, high flow cat, and exhaust with middle resonator and rear twin dump muffler. One step into the mod lists, Now to watch my money dribble away :)

Also trying to find a good cheap air induction kit, Any recommendations... Don't see the point in $500 on a Growler, Its basically just a mold which you could design yourself.

Exhaust is all on, Sounds pretty beasty though quite loud. Mac's Mufflers said to give it about a thousand k's to carbonate then it should sound a bit smoother.

So, can you feel it breathing better? Sound like an animal? Does it pop on decelleration?

Its pop's (bubbles) allot when decelerating, Feels smoother through the revs so i would say its breathing better. Sounds real beefy, Sounds like it has balls lol need to get some more power for it, I think the cams will give it a nice note.

Theres a couple of videos on youtube of guys with atomic cams in their b series. They sound great. Especially the really lumpy cams.
