whats a 50 shot wet kit?sprayin70 said:I dyno ed my car with just the pipe replaced from the cat to the y with 2 1/5" pipe and a intake with the res taken out. I got 196.4 hp and 222.7 Tq at the wheels. I just put a 50 shot wet kit and got 299 ft lbs of tq and 235.5 hp it was impressive.

I think you are fairly safe in assuming that replacing the flattened section will net gains. The cost of the mod is less than a dyno run so I wouldn't expect to find any hard data on this.marks said:Altimat -
I'm looking for measurable improvements, such dyno measurements, or 0-60 improvements.
Also, I am tryng to figure out if replacing the pipe section alone will make any improvements. Changing the mufflers alters the equation.
On a related note, I do not believe the exhaust system is warranted, therefore a change in the exhaust system would probably not void the warranty. I would need to read the fine warrany's print, when I get it.
Uhm, perhaps to prevent heat transfer from the pipe to the floor panel? It's also possible that in early tests with the pipe round, there would occasionally be thumping from the floor when the car hit bump and the suspended pipe banged against it. Thus they flattened the pipe to prevent a noise that certainly all owners would complain about.by virtuoso1 There may seem to be room for a round pipe. But why does the "crushed" portion follow the contour of the floor plate above? Clearance maybe?
Take any round pipe and put it in a vise. Squeeze. It will get wider as it gets thinner because the pipe material has to go somewhere. But unless they've added material, there is still going to be LESS FLOW through the flattened section. Why? Because a flattened section of a pipe has less cross-sectional area than the same pipe when fully round. The area decreases as you go flatter. Visualize that same pipe pressed completely flat. No exhaust when flat, period, because the cross sectional area = zero.i took in my car and they said put it up on the rack and showed me that the pipe gets WIDER and more narrow. He said he thinks it is clearence and not to mess with it.
