Of course, but most aftermarket tuners are going to throw that down a 3" pipe, into a cheesy 4" garbage can of an exaust tip. I know I had a 450 whp eclipse with that exhaust, and for some reason, these exhaust manufactures seem to think that if you have a i-4 engine that you want a giant exhaust tip sticking sideways out the back of one side ?!?!DuSpinnst said:More importantly, I'd upgrade to a Cat-Back Performance System, and I'd widen the pipe from the Turbo to the Cat on the Redline version. Easier Breathing Engine on the Redline = 300 HP.
brentil said:Solstice and Sky have 2.5" tubing which I'm betting is sufficient for the GXP/Redline power levels. Solsticeforum sponsors have said the current 2.5" tubing should easily work for ~300HP applications. One of the companies tested out 3" tubing and said the higher cost plus ricer sound far outweighed any actual performance benefit.
I want dual exiting tips on my Sol.
one of the threads on the solstice forum explains..... the stock muffler and exhaust is very restrictive. One of the threads had pictures of the cut open stock muffler.... just seeing that picture will probably explain it.wakebord99 said:Ok, if that's the case, then how are ppl getting 7-10 rwhp out of an aftermarket exhaust system. What did they throw a few 90 degree bends in there just for good measure?
That's almost as much hp as u can expect from a good V8 exhaust sytem.
Once the Redline is out or even prior you can bet there will be a "Performance" Accessory upgrade for the regular model that does just that.SaturnSkyDude said:I looked at the back end of the Sky at the auto show and it looks like you could just make another opening on the other side if you carefully cut it out or wait for the Opel or the Sol GXP and use one of theirs. Just a thought..
"Rice" is those 4 banger cars with the coffee can muffler, think some young punk in a Civic who has a muffler you could stick a fist in. Then think of the sound it makes. That is the sound of "Rice"Astronomer said:What does rice sound like?
