TurboXS Midpipe/Y-Pipe Development!
 
For the past few months, I've been working with TurboXS on developing what I consider to be the "right" exhaust.

Our first prototype showed up, and we did several test-fits. The first with my current TurboXS downpipe, then with my stock downpipe, and then with the new TurboXS downpipe. Each fitment was spot on. Everything nicely tucked up under the car, no low spots, no touching heat shields, no rubbing axles.

The pipe I have now, is a plain pipe. No flex section or resonator. For full-scale production, this is subject to change.

The pipe, as are all TurboXS exhaust pieces, is made from real T304 steel tubing that's CNC mandrel bent and hand welded. The flanges are MASSIVE, and machined from 304 as well. No thin gauge, crappy "stainless" here. The pipes are hand polished to a mirror finish. After use, the pipes go from their bright polished finish to a deep, shiny gold. It looks awesome.

The midpipe is 3" diameter, with a 3" flat flange. The y-pipe junction is hand formed, with 2.5" y-pipes. The mid/y-pipe bolts to stock mufflers, and is, finally, available independent of mufflers.

Pricing details are TBD, but I expect it to be very reasonably priced.

Mufflers are currently being designed, and should be out soon. The whole kit is designed for the LGT and OBXT, and is available as a full Turbo-back, just the mid-y, just the mufflers, or any combination of the three components!

That is the best looking Y pipe I've seen on any exhaust for these cars. No bottleneck at all!

Nice! :)

Looking forward to a resonated version.

Look at the Lachute ;) which has been out for 7 years or so.

Is there a wagon version? If you have sedan there are plenty of cheap options but nothing for wagons.

looks killer. very curious to see what they come up with for the mufflers... especially for the OBXT

Nice! How did you mate the 3" flat flange to the stock DP? Adapter?

There are a few adapters in the works ;)

Awesome. Are the mufflers going to be designed to be quiet instead of a louder straight through design? This is much more important for the wagon owners which don't want the exhaust to drone. Lastly any ETA when the exhaust will go into production?

Any plans to have a third muffler in the midpipe as an option? Would be awesome to have that as a choice from the manufacturer instead of having to ruin a nice pipe.

And by the way that midpipe/Y looks awesome! I can't believe how tucked up it is. I have an SPTv2 and I swear the Y hangs down 1-1/2" to 2" lower than this.

Excited to see price and "options" with this.

I just re-read the "How much interest do people really have in a quiet high-flow exhaust?" thread and read the following from BAC5.2 "Production will have some neat features, including one that you can't get with any other exhaust right now." Hopefully one of the "neat features" is a third muffler in mid. Fingers crossed.

Cool. Interested in the mid/y, possibly whole system once it comes to market.

I'll keep everyone in the loop. So far, everything is good!

gvr4johnny 08-28-2011 08:31 PM

Very interested and excited about the OBXT version!!

How about a y welded in ready for a cut out.
