Re: SRT exhaust manifold install today!

Stock are 1 7/8" and SRT are just shy of 3" measured inside of the pipe. Picked up long cable o2 sensors from the dealership and a guy at the shop showed me how to swap the housings, much better than grinding the plastic tabs on the male ends! Pics to follow...

Re: SRT exhaust manifold install today!

Well, the owner of the shop just realized I've been hanging out in the bay for the last three hours and I've been banished to the waiting room. All I can do now is wait...

Re: SRT exhaust manifold install today!

Looks and sounds like you have a pretty good exhaust guy. I did, and it makes a world of difference with the end product you'll receive. Plus, it's always good to work with someone that knows the answers and what they're doing.

Re: SRT exhaust manifold install today!

He stayed about an hour wait on a Friday to get the project finished up, I am currently road testing via a two hour drive south to see family. I will post off of the Frankenstein y pipe we put together tomorrow

Re: SRT exhaust manifold install today!

We split the pipe going to the passenger side cat, took out the inner wall, welded the pipe back together and tacked it on to the fabricated flange. Drilled holes and welded in o2 bungs as high up as we could. The final price for labor was 1400. My mechanic spent two full days on the project. Final cost all parts and labor with SRT manifolds, bolts, gaskets, two new o2 sensors comes to about 2100. Was it worth it? YES. The power gain is STUPID, averaged 19 MPG highway at 80 MPH, still need to see what city MPG is like. I immediately hopped on the highway for a 2 hour drive and haven't thrown a single code. This mod is HIGHLY recommend but only if you have a shop willing to let you work hand in hand with them, a place that will do it right. So, that makes the mod list: K&N CAI, modern muscle "85" mm ported throttle body, SRT manifolds, Gibson 3" cat back, diablosport intune with Hemifever 93 octane CMR tune, diablosport catch can. It's a lot of stuff and all told it has been about $4K. Worth every @#$%&+! penny IMO. Feel free to ask any questions! Again, I hope this helps someone somewhere thinking about doing the same thing. It's pretty cool to finally have something to contribute to this forum!

Re: SRT exhaust manifold install today!

Yes, and the best part is I was able to get Sean at Hemifever to send me a new tune to factor in my Modern Muscle throttle body and the SRT manifolds. I got the files last night and have been playing around with it. It took all of the lag out of the 1500-3000 RPM range. It use to be a gamble whether or not I would chirp tires from a dead stop, now they chirp every time I stomp on it without fail. Unfortunately for me, there was some confusion on my end about getting my MDS to turn on, I had him send me an additional tune unnecessarily and he informed me I was out of free updates. To be fair, I was kinda being a pain in the ass. Good thing I don't plan on doing any more mods!

Re: SRT exhaust manifold install today!

What are your first impressions of the new exhaust? How much more power do you think you've gained?

Re: SRT exhaust manifold install today!

After the initial install there was a very specific power band between about 3000 to 5000 RPM. Now that the tune is updated there is significantly more throttle response and the lag is completely gone. Its hard to say without putting it on a dyno or having before and after official drag strip times but there is a significant difference in power. Next stop is to find a drag strip in the area that will let me run a few times to get a good idea of my 1/4 mile time. I had planned on getting some street tires but a tree jumped out at me while I was camping last weekend and its going to be a while until I can save up to get the body work done. Overall I am very happy that I went ahead and did this mod even with the slightly higher than expected bill I had to foot.
