Project SR E30: Part 8 – Fabricating a Custom Stainless Steel Oval ExhaustPosted on June 9, 2019byNikita RushmanovYou may be wondering why we are welding three different straight sections. Remember how we bought mandrel bends? That means we don’t have any single piece of pipe that’s long enough for this whole piece. We have to piece together the ends of our mandrel bends to get a long straight.This is actually my first time welding stainless steel.So right at about this time we got really sick and tired of welding on our backs so we went and begged our buddy to let us use his lift. This is what it looks like so far.We couldn’t find a muffler that we liked so for the time being we just added this straight 3″ round pipe to the end of the exhaust. Once we find a muffler that we actually like, we can simply trim the exhaust and weld it on.We lined up the last section on the car and tack welded it in place.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gotten that burning polyurethane smell a couple of times already.ReplyLeave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
