Building the Exhaust, EJ22 -> EA71 Brat Swap
Posted 13 January 2010 - 02:00 PM
I realize that I will have to modify what I have for the cross memembers, etc.. Where do I go for the rest. The 2.2L has a much larger exhaust than the old 1.6L in the Brat. And it had no Cat..
My donor car, EA82 GL wagon, has a near complete exhaust. (someone has stolen the Cat..) but that exhaust size might still be to small. I think I remember reading someplace that I need 1.75" dia. pipe size. Which means I need the larger Cat as well.
I don't know how it works other places but the wrecking yards can't legally sell any part of the exhaust system. Especially the Catalitic converter. I,ve had trouble getting them to sell me a muffler. Also the first thing they do, here, is cut out the Cats. to deter theft (by the meth-heads).
What has been you-all's experience in this type of swap and exhaust system.

They'll be able to offer you solutions for cats, and mufflers to fit your performance, sound, and price range.
Then, they will be able to take those components and bend up a custom exhaust so you have something that fits perfectly.
Depending on components and such, should come in $300 or less.
This would be a good time to have them tuck the exhaust closer to the body if you are lifted, or offroading it.

Or is the Law going to hold me to the 92 standard for the EJ engine??
Not planning to go try and sneak anything buy, but don't want to add equipment that isn't required.

screw the cat. most exhaust shops of hispanic ownership will run a pipe back for you for about $60 if you provide the muffler.

Thats not a door officer, it's a rollover emergancy escape hatch
Mine is lifted so goes up and over the trans. we used 2in pipe
Oh its an 85 GL/and EJ22 conversion
I bet if you made your way over here I could "hook you up"
Hey where did the "cats" go
up and over
Just dump right there...Keep it simple..right.
