    Intercooler and "Stock" exhaust....

    Just finished this up....litterally. Got to make the Big Dog Shootout tomorrow morning (spectator). My gosh this was a total PITA! But I wanted to try it and it looks like it's going to work. 3 inch exhaust pipe and marine exhaust hose. NO bracket. It's SOLID with the hard piping. But, time will tell. Won't get it on the water until tomorrow morning, so I don't know if there are any leaks or what the boost numbers will be.

    That is all, just patting myself on the back(hopefully not too prematurely!)

    A BIG thanks to Sleeplessnms for the inspiration and assistance.




    Trust me, there's a resonator down there.

    Sean

    edit: it's, "stock," because the OE exhaust hose requires some trimming.

    strainer's on the workbench...couldn't get another hose fitting at 12:00am so the hose wouldn't kink. it'll be in soon. you can see the bracket hanging next to the IC.....

    unknown speed loss. hopefully boost leak. don't know yet, boost gauge on the fritz. read 46lbs of vacuum all day never saw more than 71

    edit: yeah it's very much shoehorned. if I drop a wrench im [email protected]&ked!

    UPDATE...sort of.



    yeah...soooo

    I haven't even ridden since the big dog shootout
    Wife got prego, work got busy, you know the story.

    But, even then it had a big boost leak...jee, couldn't POSSIBLY wonder why.

    I think the moisture killed my Dynotune guage that day too. I don't like welded pipe I had made on the quick. I will make this work..........................................then probably get fed up and go rear exhaust.

    Jumpin back in the saddle,

    seancucf, nice work
    hey, on the boost gauge try this. Mine was giving me some very erratic readings like yours and mine is only a month old. Don,t ask how but i got water in the connector that is connecting the sensor (grey line) to the black line. I took my connector apart and dry it out real good with time and some air. It worked for me, hope it works for you.

    Mine was starting at 110 and going up from there or something. now is back to the negitives at idle.

    Sean, some guys have found that boost leaks out of the XS ICs where the mounting bolts go in the side ... that you have to have bolts in there to stop the boost leak. Not sure if you had bolts in yours, was worth a try ...

    If thats true, I'm gonna feel like a complete moron.....nope, no bolts here.

    It would however, make me feel better about not having to do the plumbing again.

    Thanks Vern!, I'll check.

    +1 I am one of those guys. If you do not have the bolts in the mounting boss holes on both sides, you now have 2 holes in your system. Looking at your pics i do not see a bolt in the top side.
