    alternative to Riva Free Flow?

    buddy of mine wants to get a pipe like the Riva Free Flow, does anyone know if there is another place to buy something like this?

    Riva Free Flow is $85
    he was looking for a cheaper way

    he could try bypassing the resonator and connecting the stock hose to the exh outlet.

    I just used a 2.5" diameter pipe i had laying around, about 5-6 inches long

    thats pretty much all the riva free flow kit gives you

    just remove the resonator and replace it with the pipe

    Be careful doing this.. You should make sure the ends of the pipe are flared so the hoses can't blow off. I have heard stories of this happening, and crafts sinking! I went to a nearby muffler shop and got him to make me up a marine grade stainless one with flared ends. Cost me 60 bucks.

    tell your friend to not be such a cheap ass and pay RIVA for the R&D theyve done. its a complete kit and also looks like it belongs. if you try and rig something up it can sink your boat !! (I'm not trying to be an ass by saying this, just out of precaution)

    Just what I was thinking... If he can't spend $85 maybe he should leave it stock

    uh - you guys are weak sauce.

    have you seen this "free flow pipe"? R&D....? thats funny ha ha...

    i was hoping to at least find a nice nug of dank packed in the end for that dough.

    after i spent money for that -"researched and developed free flow pipe"..i starting making things myself, i was seriously pissed at myself for buying a g-d 6" long pipe.

    back to topic. the REAL chore is getting that resonator out of there! i used a pneumatic air saw and cut it up like cheese. some move the vts out of the way. do a search..after that its just stupid easy.

    and yes, i would advise flaring the ends (local muffler shop) to avoid slipping off.

    I just used a piece of 2.5" galvanized steel pipe from the muffler shop - $5. Have them put a little flare on it or just use some Ultra Black or Ultra Copper Permatex sealant and glue the hoses on and use double clamps. Works great.
