Best home made straight pipe for r12x
ok so yesterday i convinced my parents to get me the straight pipe exhaust from h20 but them my dad said ow we will make our own ''for a fraction of the price''so we went to a marine warehouse and bought a few items
1 14''inch piece of 3''inch fiberglass wet exhaust pipe
1 3''inch hi temp silicone 90'degree bend.
we took the straight piece that goes between the down-pipe and catalytic converter thing and cut it directly in half then taking the piece that bolts to the down pipe go right there where the RH is and cut just the outer water jacket sleeve off but leave the actual inner exhaust pipe still attached the 90 degree bend slides over the outer water jacket so the water cant go back through the actual air pipe take your original black pipe that goes from the water box to the outlet and cut it right about where i did about 8 inches up from the bottom then clamp it all together and install
all together cost me $80.

It was nice meeting u today on the Water.
Nice job, Sounds pretty good actually, Just gonna have to beef it up a lil
Don't feel bad, I found out why my ski was acting up. After we ate lunch I noticed the rear of the ski was under water a bit. Pulled the seat and had water over the SC. Drained it out, and found I had melted my exhaust in the far back corner of the ski a little. I had to get a ride back to my truck, and come back to scoop it up. Time to bypass my plastic resonator now I guess.

Is your pipe double walled? If not I assure you you are back feeding water into your turbo at idle... And you will have turbo issues... I built mine for 60 worth of ss pipe and some tig welding

I am not here to argue with people but pissing your neighbors and the cops off is not only immature and stupid but give the rest of your watercraft riding community a bad rap. Everything I have heard and seen about doing exhaust on this ski offers no performance gains what so ever. Again, noise with no gain is just as dumb as your statement.
