[exhausts] [80]

Hi guys
Just to let you know I received a quote for a 3 inch exhaust from Beaudesert
Exhausts in Aus. They say they have no problem bending over the rear axle at
all and they use mandrel in their process. They also say that running the
exhaust out the side is of no benifite at all and will make it louder.
Performance is better and they make a lot of these exhausts for the guys
down under. The cost is $870 plus freight for mild steel and $ 1500 for
stainless steel plus freight.

Hi Guys
I was talking to a very nice guy in England who can make a custom made
stainless steel exhaust with a 3 inch pipe, mandrel bent, and straight
throught boxes with a life time warrenty. He asked me what is the opening
behind the turbo and will it accomadate a 3 inch pipe, I told him I didn't
know, well it is me after all. So could anyone who knows please tell me what
will fit at the back of the turbo opening and ill follow it up.

John, who was your man and how much ? By some strange coincidence I was measuring exhaust pipe diameters last night, nothing much on the telly, 62mm outside diameter prior to the front box. I did not check just down from the turbo but I will tonight.
I need a new system and was thinking of going down the 3 inch / 75mm route. A complete standard system from Milner is approx =A3430 inc carriage and VAT so the extra for a bigger bore system starts to look a bit more inviting. I will contact Jeremy Fearn today and see what he charges.

Hey Gareth
The guy I was talking to is from Long Life exhausts and he said that it may
cost about ?500 and odd. It took weeks of e-mails to get this far because
they have not done one before and probably busy aswell, but said if it can
be done they should be able to do it. He said that he gets a hugh amount of
enquiries from the Rep of Ireland , wonder why would it have anything to do
with not having anything good over here for the cruisers. If you are
checking tonight let me know and we will see where we can go from there. I
asked about the bend over the axle and he is not sure if there is enough
room for the 3 inch, but a place in Aus says they can and do do it all the
time, so maybe while your there you could check to see what you think. I
would only I would not be confident enough. What is the size of the stock
exhaust is it 2 or 2 and a half inches.

John, the standard diameter is 2 and a quarter inches, approx 57mm along
most of the exhaust. It does vary being a bit bigger in the front
downpipe and is rather squashed over the back axle.
Do you have the phone number / email for long life ?
Gareth.

Hey Gareth
I phoned my Toyota dealer and a new exhaust would cost 520 euro here and
then they would charge fitting.

John , 520 Euro =3D =A3350 which is the price of an exhaust from Milner prior to carriage and VAT being added. Be sure that all prices quoted include all taxes, we need to compare apples with apples , and not apples with lemons !!!!

Just had a thought, if the pipe is 2 and a quarter inches would it not be
the same at the turbo and if so how could a 3 inch fit it.

John, as I said in one of my earlier e-mails, the pipe does vary in
diameter. It is noticeably larger in diameter prior to the front box,
approx 62 mm. It is slightly bigger again just downstream of the turbo.
I will measure this tonight. Different diameters are no problem to a
specialist as you can swage a tube, i.e. gently increasing or reducing
the diameter to whatever you need. Alternatively you can use off the
shelf adaptors. Have a look at JETEX exhausts on the web for some
examples, they supply components in 2 , 2.5 and 3 inch sizes.

With the weather being so nice I decided to do the measurements for
you.
The exhaust pipe directly after the union with the turbo is 66mm on the
outside so it doesn't have to be increased that much to take it to 3".
As for going over the rear chassis member, the gap is around 4", so as
long as you have reasonable exhaust mounts so that it doesn't move
around that much you should have no problems with the going over the
chassis member without having to flatten it out.

Julian,
How much movement, do you reckon, there is on the rubber bodywork cushions ?

Hi Roman,
Not much - with the vehicle running it is difficult to spot any movement that
far down the line.

Hi John
Will be interested in the outcome of your investigation into 3" exhausts as
mine is rusting just above the back axle and I guess will have to be
replaced too. If we all do decide to go 3" are there any tuning
implications to make the most of the bigger exhaust??
By the way the Rad is fine now and no leaks at all!! ?3.95 well spent and I
have kept a spare bottle in my rear cubby just in case it happens again.
The strange whirring noise has come back once again for a brief visit but
again could not track it down.
Regards
Simon Hughes

Simon, I have asked for freight charges for the Beaudesert ( Australian
)3 inch system and the 3 and a half inch turbo outlet. I hope to speak
with Jeremy Fearn (UK) today. See the websites of both for more info.
Tuning implications. If you ever intend to intercool the vehicle, Mr
Fearn also does this, then the maximum benefit will be gained by having
a free flowing exhaust. More air in, then you need to get more air out
!
Fitment of a Walbro electric "pusher" pump is also highly reccomended.
Have a look at the "Birfield" archives, on the web, for threads on this
subject. The pumps are quite cheap and there is a great supplier in the
USA who is very helpful. One day I will get around to fitting mine, it
has sat in the garage for far too long - shame on me.
Hope this helps. Regards Gareth Jones. '97 1-HDFT Newport.

Hi Simon,
Is it from the front of the engine?
I get a whirring noise when the aircon comes on and also a noise from the
aircon tensioner pulley bearing (constant).
