Project SR E30: Part 8 – Fabricating a Custom Stainless Steel Oval ExhaustPosted on June 9, 2019byNikita RushmanovThe angle of this downpipe to midpipe joint is extremely sensitive. Being off by a couple degrees can drastically change which way the exhaust is pointing. Because of this, it is neccessary to tack weld this joint under the car to get it perfect.Getting this angle of this joint right was the most difficult task of this entire exhaust project. Every tweak required re-sanding the joint for the pipes the butt up perfectly. In the end, we got it just right.Rinse and repeat. Seal, back purge, weld.For the next section, we’re going to make a right turn to point the exhaust towards the bumper opening.After that, it’s a straight shot to the back of the car.RelatedPrevious page 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8Next pageRelated TopicsFabrication and SafetyHeaders and ExhaustHeader and ExhaustFabricationWelding Previous Article FeaturesSlipAngle Podcast /// Crazy Weather at #GRIDLIFE MidwestPosted on June 6, 2019September 18, 2019byAbrin SchmuckerView Post Next Article FeaturesTechPortable Data Acquisition and Logging – AEM Electronics CD-5Posted on June 11, 2019byMike KojimaView Post 5 commentsNice work!ReplyLooks great but any reason to do it in 1 piece? Seems like its going to be a bear to remove later on.ReplyAt the time, we couldn’t find any decent oval exhaust flanges that wouldn’t have taken away from the ground clearance.That being said, the exhaust is actually pretty easy to remove.ReplyNice work, I was gonna see if you can check out the treehouse racing lollypops. they are smaller in physical size and gain more clearance. Your build reminds me of one of my friends who went KA-t in an e30 and it ran pretty gnar.Tip: might want to 2-piece the exhaust for when you need to change out the guibo, subframe bushings, and other rear maintenance.ReplyYeah we’re definitely going to switch to a heim-style lolipop bushing down the line. I’ve gotten that burning polyurethane smell a couple of times already.ReplyLeave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
