I had been looking at this setup awhile and decided to finally just buy it. I should be getting it in the mail today. If anyone has any questions about this setup I would be happy to answer them since the lack of specific answers were the reason I hesitated to buy it.

I will post pictures soon and if you want close ups let me know. AND I will post video once my car is all back together (Engine/Trans/Cradle is out of the car)

Link to exhaust I'm talking about:

Are you required to pass emissions inspections in Detroit? If so, you're likely to have trouble with not having cat/muflfers with this exhaust that isn't street legal.

From the eBay ad:

Just got the exhaust and put it on. Here are pictures of it. If anyone has questions about how the welds are or how thick it is just let me know, it will be a bit before it goes into the car.

Unboxing, pretty well packaged actually


Gaskets seem real nice and are thick too


Installed

Will need to figure out what tips will help bring the volume down from "****in' painful" to around "what?"

Best comment EVER!!!! You ain't kiddin, that is going to be insane loud. I did something similar on a Formula with a getrag and no joke you could hear me coming from miles away. But I Y piped it at about shifter area, it sounded sick. I put some tips on it I got free from a buddy, wish we knew what they were cause they were wicked. Some dual OEM of some type, def were not aftermarket tips.

Actually guys I have the same setup on my 88. Just getting a cat welded with the same flanges right now. Its pretty loud, but not nearly as loud as I expected it to be.

nice looking with a good fit. i bought the same one as well. i will be using a cat (new jersey requires them) and i got two stainless bottle mufflers to tone it down a little. i hope to install mine in the beginning of the summer. i too was pleasantly surprised with packing and quality. good luck with that...like the headers btw.

I will more than likely put the drive train back in Monday and I can get a video of it running. Maybe I can find a decibel meter for my smart phone and measure that too. The engine is very far from stock though so mine may be a bit louder than a stock 2.8 will be.

That is some great looking work on that exhaust, and for a great price too!!!

What is the item in the "catalytic converter" area? Is it a catalytic converter or some kind of muffler (glass-pack type, I assume?).

From personal experience....
(I had the same style exhaust, IRM made that kit years ago, but in 2" dia. pipes)
I installed a Flowmaster 40 series 2-chamber muffler where the catalytic converter would be (NO catalytic converter - emissions laws had not been passed yet, so no NEED for that cat. converter).
I still think that was the best sounding Fiero that I have heard with a 2.8!

I think it is just a resonator. Its got honeycomb holes throughout the inside of it. I forgot to snap a pic of it but if you would like a picture its easy enough to come off right now.

This exhaust is 2.5" and so are my headers. That with the ported and polished heads it has now, I really wanna hear this thing run.

Looks to be a well made efficient design. You could probably tune this system for sound by inserting a 13"L turbo style muffler in the position that the CAT normally occupies. Being a 2 1/2" system, if you made a custom crossover, this system could most likely be used on a 4.9L swap to keep the sound reasonable but for a 3800SC or V8 it might prove too small.

nice looking exhaust, i basically made the same thing for mine, but that polished stainless is a nice set-up. Not sure if your running an aftermarket cam or not, but here is mine- http://youtu.be/4qvij2icBas

Sounds mean with that cam! Do you have some sort of firebird-esqe overlay in/on your taillights?

My engine is a 3.4 with trueleo intake, ported and polished heads, trueleo headers, 1.6 full roller rockers and a 260H cam. It should sound pretty good when I get it back together. Probably will sound a lot like yours GTFiero1.

Waking up early to hopefully get it back in tomorrow before work.

I realize that this is an old thread, but if the 260H is the Crane version, this might present a problem. (Yes I know about Comp. But some people tend to get them confused in conversation.)
This will result in lift numbers identical to the 272, which (according to the lift specs and spring specs) is likely to require machining to prevent coil bind.

I had the IRM version of this system on my Formula. I could drive it through our parking deck at work and leave a trail of screaming car alarms.
