Redone exhaust and improved tune
« on: April 15, 2017, 05:54:10 PM »
I tried to find my old thread, but couldn't.  So, here are some pictures of my new exhaust and a video of the new exhaust and newer tune.  First, I used to have 2 Borlas in line and they sounded "tinny" to me.  So, I swapped them out for 2 Magnaflows or about the same length plus 2 5 inch Vibrants.  It made the sound deeper and not tinny at all.  Second, the exhaust note used to sound lumpy, like a cammy piston motor and the idle was at 1500 or so.  I found pinhole leaks in the intake runners and plugged them up.  Found 2 of the injectors had similar small leaks.  Fixed them.  The throttle plates are still misaligned or not in sync and I'll fix that shortly.
