    Help- Crack in TDR Waterbox

    I have a large crack in my TDR waterbox and was wondering what causes this and if anyone has been able to fix something like this and how. I absolutely love this box and would like to continue using it.

    You're getting too hot.. Is this an 08+ box? It looks like the area that the midpipe would be aiming at.. Get a 2" longer 4" ID exhaust coupler and set the box back further if you can. Drill out the 3 holes on the midpipe to the next drill size up.

    Bit of a weak spot ... Weld it up and add another Ali plate over to reinforce it ...

    Any fabrication hop ... The stock boxes have a deflector plate to stop this ...

    The Riva boxes are also thick to stop this ... It's the heat and constant hammering of the the exhaust gases that crack them ...

    Re: Help- Crack in TDR Waterbox

    I know the newer tdr boxes are double walled there. I would get a hold of Tony. I bet he will take care of this for you.

    I would also cut your J-pipe 1 3/4 inches off the bottom...
