Here is my custom system for the turbo zcar at last. Let me first say that it is not the stainless system, but the proto system in mild steel painted with high temp silver paint, (I really dont know why these auto places sell this crap paint. The can has 1200 degrees listed on the can, what is the optimum temp if a correctly running car 1400-1600 degrees, what a waste of money and time getting this stuff. Keep that in mind when you decide to paint your new headers white, you could be just wasting your time and money)The stainless system will look even better then this, I will tell you that over time the system will turn a brown/golden color from the heat, but hey we can tell people our cars parts are gold plated. Note the first picture with all of the hardware, less two small brackets that go on the muffler and the second pipe to secure the system to the body of the car, no problem they will be there in the kit. The second picture is of the downpipe and the cat back pipe. The downpipe will have to be welded in a couple of places because the bends are so close no mandrel bender can do it, but the bends will be a mandrel bend cut and welded together perfectly. The flange on the downpipe is 3" swedged down to 2 1/2". This is easily changed to a full 3" pipe to accomidate a full T4 exhaust turbine housing if it is wanted. Additionally, the 2 1/2" flange will fit the stock exhaust turbine housing, 2 1/4", but it will also fit the modified stock housing perfectly that is running the T4 turbine wheel like me, courtesy of Jim Wolf Technology. The next two pictures are of the couplers in the system. These clamps and couplers require no gaskets and do not leak or make noise. The clamps are made from billet aluminum, and are available in four colors, blue, red like the one shown here, black and last but not least silver. Note the ability of adjustments with these couplers. You get a full 360 degree rotational adjustment and the X&Y axis adjustments also. Not a bad deal at all in my opinion. I have also made a test pipe to go in place of the cat FOR TESTING PURPOSES ONLY, YEA RIGHT, I plan on testing my car everytime I get in it, So you will have a system that is smog legal. The only thing you will have to do is cut the pipe going to your EGR valve on the stock system and weld it to the new downpipe. Isn't it so nice Nissan decided to make that pipe stainless steel also, thank you very much guys. And here, my prize, isn't she lovely and so deadly, her kiss is fifteen times as deadly as that of the 2 1/2" system. I think what I love the most about her is her in born need to dominate possess. Vincent Price could have not said it any better, this system is killer guys LLLLLLL. I just break myself up. I cant wait to get this system on my car.
I am going to take the system and install it on a stock car, do the baseline power of the car on the dyno and then see what we get with my system on the same car. I really cant use my car for the test because of all of it's modifications, but Rocky on the forum has agreed to let me use his 82 turbo for the test. I am expecting some significant Hp gains for even the stock car with the system. The good part is that the system will also support a 500Bhp car with no problems, you will have to rermove the cat for that kind of power tho. I will post the dyno charts on this page as soon as I get them so you will be able to see for yourself the results.
