    J-pipe extenderand O2 sensor

    What if we took one of these, flipped them end to end and welded together. Drilled a hole for the o2 sensor and use to move the j-pipe back and have an afr at the same time. Assuming they are available to fit the exhaust manifold and jpipe. About $25 from Silicon Intakes

    With the clamps you can't build it any cheaper unless someone is throwing in the labour for free!

    How you figure? First it does not come with clamps. You use the factory hardware. Second, everything R&D manufactures is way overpriced. It is good, innovative, quality parts but way overpriced. Block offs for example. The guy in SA or wherever had his XBL's made for way less and his looked even better. Factoring the cost of a limited run and the shipping to the States he still was way under R&D on price. R&D has $50 tops invested in that part plus the cost of importing and what not they are making more in profit then what the part costs.

    Rodney, you are confusing Race Engineering (RE) with R&D Racing products

    Your right, my bad. D and E are right beside each other in the alphabet. R&D is in Florida right? Means they probably got an illegal doing the welding so their investment just went down. I'll start making them here in Panama, the minimum wage is $2.30 per hour.

    They do come with a clamp, and I want some, so as your offering, stand up to the post and make me 6 @ $50.00 a piece.
    Where do I send the cheque?
