For 13 Freakin Years......

A section of pipe (about a foot) was intentionally "crushed" to less than 1 and a quarter inch!:cool:
So the mechanic did this with a REAL 2 inch...
He bypassed old flange entirely, and was confident about it....
theres also a 24 inch glasspack after new section of pipe (flow tech red hots). ECM is takin awhile to adjust but it is doing so. The most unique sound I have had yet from an EA82 besides duals.

i dont know your states rules. federally perhaps
The flange seems to be necessary (even tho mine was stuck for years). I broke the y pipe on a short trip just an hour ago. There is a way to make original flange to work with new pipe without bottlenecking. I just can't get away without it. I had no idea that was a second cat, that was replaced by glasspack, all i find is "sound resonator" (resignator) or "center muffler" ... I wonder if I am illegal exhaust :-\

Another point is the 9.5:1 on spfi getting same exhaust as lower compression EA82.Mass production's "who cares, we saved a buck" attitiude is in alot of cars. I got a better look this morning, it is simply broken and not dangling (hung well), i wonder if welding smoke excited convertor into too hot for the 13 year old y-pipe. These things can be dangerously tricky... Give .25 more on pipe, and all kinds of little thinks had to be changed (including idle/air mix, reset ECM, maybe even timing).
It broke climbing a rather bumpy steep hill, I'd swear the sound was like 20 ft in back of the car before pipe broke (odd to comprehend). It was probably on fire

Give an inch, fall apart for miles .. Darn those famous sayings.

The y-pipe or another exhaust peice will break without it.The new 2 inch pipe fit exactly over remains of flange for tight easy weld (cheap upgrade!)
