    Triple pipe questions...

    The instructions plainly state that the kevlar seals in the exhaust manifold are to be 7.25 inches long. But when they are this long they overlap a great deal. Im afraid this overlap will cause the pipe to leak because it might not seat properly.

    Also I expected the kevlar to have a sticky side to it and it doesnt. What holds these things in place???

    I had to trim mine back some. You want a nice snug fit. Nothing holds them in. If you cut them right (tight fit) they will stay in place until the pipe is installed in the manifold then the pipe holds them. The rope is more of a cushion for the pipe so it doesnt rub on the manifold or crack.

    pipes

    I was thinking about trimming them but the instructions are real plain on the length before install. Looks like it overlaps almost an inch. Thanks for the info.

    Also I had pmed you a while ago about the water routing. I am using the stock head and plan to split the two big head outlets three ways to feed the pipe fittings. I am thinking I will still need to dump water overboard after this process because those three fitting cant possibly flow dual cooling lines...

    I didnt have my rope overlap. I think even if you dont trim them the rope will compress anyway. Its just a cushion for the manifold to pipe connection the 3 rubber orings do all of the sealing. Hopefully someone else will chime in that trimmed the rope also. Ill get you the info n the water routing. Sorry man but I had hundreds of pms during that time period.

    Now i trimmed mine.Never had a problem.If the rope is overlapped,the pipe will not fit into the manifold all the way.55 hours later,no problems.

    Kevlar rope flatens out no need to trim.
    Here is one I cant even see where rope ends or starts.

    Mine were GP not GPR and were 7.5"long not 7.25" long
    if yours are easier to install when there trimed do it they flatten out they will work fine.

    Woody knows what hes talking about.

    thanks

    Thanks for the info from all of you guys. This is such a great place.

    Woody,

    What kind of head are you using with your setup??? I was curious about your water routing....my setup is a bit different than other. It seems that most of the big bore guys are using R+D heads instead of the stock ones..
