RXP Straight Pipe
Unfortunatly my J Piep flex joint died and was leaking fuemes into my hull and effecting power so it had to go, I have been wanting to make a straight pipe for some time, I love it loud and cosidering this ski is only for the track noise isnt really an issue to me.
At first I was going to just make a new mid pipe to go from mani to WB but I thought it was alot of work to not get what I really wanted.
So I set about it. Its 2.5" internall diameter with3" over the top for that water jacket then into a mini WB to make sure the fumes are well mixed with water before going down 3" flexible marine exhaust onto a 3" outlet in the normal thru hull position.
Currently I have the exhaust made and the WB made and Im just in the process of cutting up the metal for the jacket, thats the hard bit.
I know that there prob isnt much power gain to be had but im certain that there will be low down throttle response improvement which is what I want for getting round a course.
My setup also does away with the bell on the maini and is jacketed right upto the mani.
