Breathing better

Postby Mandeep D » Mon Mar 19, 2012 8:56 pm

A flex joint on one of my DP's went out on me, so I was faced with the decision of removing and replacing said flex, or getting different DP's. New ones are $1G+ which doesn't float my boat, and fixing sounded like a lot of time, so I bought these!!

They're used "piggies". This is when you take stock downpipes and gut the pre-cats (some say this is required when running K04's :oops: ). These particular units have the neat feature of having the main cats gutted as well :o We might be able to get some flames out the back with this setup :ph34r: The PO had them sandblasted and ceramic painted too. I got them for $275 + $35shipping and I'll still have my old ones to do something with..... Reality says you don't need any better exhaust than this to run deep into the 12's.

So why are they named piggies anyways?

Late reply - oops! They are named piggies after the man Piggy who is one of the principles at VAST performance in Detroit. He pioneered the concept. Piggie pipes go toe to toe with high dollar DP's up until the 500whp range, IIRC. :twisted:
