Re: Exhuast Crimp Removed

It looks like they used slightly smaller diameter pipe for the join. Will that make a difference ? Why couldn't they use same size pipe? I am an ignoramus when it comes to welding etc...

I noticed that as well however I'm not too worried about the slight difference as it is better than the restriction that would be caused by the crimp.

I'm sure someone with more knowledge of welding and exhaust fab can explain the reason for the different size...

Re: Exhuast Crimp Removed

On my 07 and 2012 i noticed that the passenger side exhaust tips are a lot cooler and there is less exhaust coming out of them than the drivers side exhaust at idle and at 2000 rpm. The srt guys said there tuned that way so im guessing its all done inside the muffler.
