    Bypassing the Resonator

    Has anyone used a pipe to bypass the resonator? I read in a different post that ppg sells the pipe for $15 and you can have your own power pipe.

    yes, PPG has a short by-pass pipe for around that price. The "Power Pipe" takes the place of the flexible rubber hose from the muffler to hull exit. Basically a straight pipe for mildly modded skis. they have a "Resonated Power Pipe" which adds some back pressure for stock skis.

    You can bypass it by going to your local muffler shop and getting a piece of 2 1/2" stainless steel pipe 8 inches long. I did this at first, but later switched to the power pipe.

    psycho, What would be the difference between the powerpipe and just adding the $15 pipe to the stock setup to bypass the resonator other than the powerpipe is a must when adding an intercooler.

    just make sure you get the ends flared or a bead of weld around each end, or the hose could slip off and sink your ski like I did

    the power pipe flows better than having the stock rubber hose flexing under WOT hooked to your by-pass pipe. I think Glen said around 30% better. but if u do get it then wrap it with some heder wrap to keep under hood temps down. hope this helps.

    1FastTrespiper,

    I also went this route before switching to the Power Pipe. If you decide to skip the Power Pipe and go with the free flow, I actually have a spare I can give you. Most likely a muffler shop will have what you need, but, in my case, I usually can't find squat in Richmond VA so I usually go way abroad.

    Thanks for the offer Red Devil, It shouldn't be a problem getting it locally. I'll probably just use it untill I go with the intercooler/power pipe next year.
