:Today I have arranged for dozer and cam, who has a jkuR to have custom fit stainless steel exhaust made a week on Saturday with a good friend of mine who owns his own fabricators. We have a selection of boxes to try and it's up to the individual to pick what he would like. Back pressures in the headers will be checked on the build just to make sure the v6 stays balanced. We are doing the 3.6 v6 first then we will move onto the oil burners.

 

I will keep the club posted on how it goes  :great:

 

 

This company already make most of the kits you can get for the Landys and cruiser from most of the dealers. They have been doing this type of thing including making bumpers and sliders for years.

Hi Bob

 

Any developments on this subject?

 

I am looking for a stainless steel cat-back exhaust system for my V6 Rubicon. Would like to get rid of the rear muffler and make the pipework less complicated; want to couple it with my AFE air intake ... and therefore balanced back-pressure would be important.

Was looking at the Hayward & Scott option - as recommended by Jim (Volant165) - but this proposal sounds like it would be worth considering. Is it likely to be a commercially available item soon?

 

Cheers

Kerry

Kerry, if you go for an air intake do yourself a favour and make sure you get one of those boxes that fits the snorkel.

 

I had one (K&N) and I sold it, after seeing 2 fellow Jeepers in the US getting hidrolocked in shallow puddles...

Hi Hugo

 

Thanks for the warning :great: I have an AFE Momentum GT specifically made for JK - and yes, it sits in it's own box (in the same location as factory) ... ie it is not an open cone type - coincidentally the same one as Jim Olexa has fitted. We were discussing them on the forum a few months back ... mainly around whether to have a "spare/older" filter for off-road activities.

Hi Bob

 

I am not actually that worried about back pressure ... per se ... but picked up on that as you mentioned it in your original post. I am happy to go with the recommendation from Jim - I also know the company, who are highly regarded and conveniently located in the UK - but thought it would be interesting to see what alternative you had "created".

:alien: Have you decided not to go ahead with a system with your fabricator? I thought you had fitted one to Dozer?
