Some New Pipes

Recommended Posts

Well. with the help of 78turbobrat, we finally had some exhaust done up for teh wagon. No pics of it yet, but it does have a nice tip:D

2.5 Inch from the turbo back. High flow muffler that is 2.5 inch in and out (not a straight through muffler)

 

The IC piping was redone at the same time. got rid of the crappy stock WRX Y pipe at the bottom of the IC. They made a new steel Y. Teh wagon seems very happy about it:clap:

OVerall, boost is smoother, throttle response is better and the car sounds killer!@@!!

Now me, I prefer my 3" hehehe:brow:

 

I had that option.

 

These motors do not move enough air volume for a 3 inch to make an appreciable difference over a 2.5. You'll just be louder *shrug*

Tidy setup there, too bad about the DP shot. Is it a custom job?

I have 2 Twagon's, one with 2.5" from the TWE DP back and the other with 3".

There is a noticeable difference in throttle response, barely, but the 2.5" exhaust doesn't have nearly as much turbo whine as does the 3".

That was one thing I noticed with my TD04 is the whine is extremely loud. I like it. In combination with the BOV and the flutter from the turbo when I let out of the throttle, I get all giddy inside...:banana:

i noticed that the otherday when i got it running, man i love it.

 

the sound of the bov and turbo when i shift makes me think "skyline" and then i giggle like a school girl. :lol::headbang: it makes me happy, and with the nisan injectors, its a world of difference.

Any chance of some more BOV piccys and some plumbing info?

I'm thinking once I get the XT goin sweet some half assed blow off valve + uber loud exhaust would really confuse (and probably disapoint) the people looking for the WRX or turbo legacy that are normally seen rolling round here.

The BOV is a Go fast Bits valve. Got it from a board member. Generally I don't recommend venting to the atmosphere, but my stock WRX recirc valve crapped out and this was a good deal.. add to that the fact that I have thus far been too lazy to redisign the recirc routing, and you get 100% ATM.

 

Not sure I have any more pics of the BOV.. Never gave it much thought.. It looks like a BOV *shrug*;)

 

The piping for the IC is 100% custom. The guy who did it, Made a new y pipe (under the IC), instead of trying to work in the piece of crap the WRX comes stock with.

 

At stock boost, I guarantee it would not disappoint someon looking for an old school turbo legacy. A little more boost and I surprise the occasional WRX owner as well.

 

 

Oh, and since I forgot, Kudos to Daniel at Jerry's exhaust in Lewisville, TX. He did a spectacular job on the exhaust and IC piping!

I got my BOV vented to the atmosphere and there seems to be no issue with it. Granted, I think I got a TPS problem but that causes hesitation before boost. I even still have the turbo flutter in the intake as well which i love.

 

Ok now that it seems like I hijacked the thread a bit, when are we gonna see some of under the car as well? Maybe a couple of that new y-pipe:D

When I get around to getting the car off the ground, I'll get pics of the exhaust.. SHould be soon.

 

Y pipe? Not likely any time soon.. I would have to take the IC off to do it, and since its working so nicely, I don't want to mess with it.

yeah I know the feeling. Mine finally works pretty good and I don't really want to mes with it too much but I gotta cause she's still not running right. Oh well:rolleyes:

 

My new exhaust should be here before too long. Got it off of a board member on NASIOC:banana:

Soo, Just Plumb er in somewhere between, Mr Turbo and Throttle body, Where does the tube that sets it off (or what ever that other tube is) go to?

pick a line that vac/boost sensative. ie: line for boost gauge.

Caleb, I am curious, how much boost are you running out of the TD04? Isnt that an eclipse/evo turbo? Also at what compression are you running. I noticed in your profile it said "high compression EA82T". Are you running a SPFI, or carbed block? And you do have the Nissan injectors correct, out of a 280 I think it is right?

the turbo that came on the Eclipse/Talon is a TD05 which is very similar but yet different in its own ways. The TD04 is a stock turbo that comes on the WRX's.

The TD04 I am using came from a WRX. Currently I am at stock boost for a few reaons ranging from boost controller crapping out to the fact that my fuel system is still (mostly) stock.

The high compression bit is because of a carb'd shortblock.

 

 

 

Side note. The TD04 is one of the most common stock turbos on the market. 1st gen talons/eclipses used them. A whole buttload of volvos used them. Some saabs too I think. I seem to remember that even some of the chysler turbo vans and such used one of the TD04 compressor trims.
