Re: Vibrant Exhaust on Today....Clips soon

What did you pay for it, if you dont mind me asking? I saw one on Ebay today for $550 shipped. The setup was a full catback system.

I plead ignorance on this one.... but what exactly do underdrive pulleys do? Before I was never really a motor person, but now I am actually more interested in beefing up power in this vehicle, as opposed to my last vehicle where it was mostly show and no go. Now I want go, and less show: ie, sleeper, but not turbo'd.... (Don't have the money for it).
Right now I have a catback exhaust and cai from Mazdaspeed. So the next options are headers? Underdrive pulleys? I'm curious now, you've piqued my interest.

just sets up your pulley a different way obviously. i cant think of who has them but gains are a very meager increase in torque from what i have heard/read. plus, you pretty much have to have a shop tp do it cuz the crank pulley is damn near impossible to get to

With the vibrant you cant just add a race pipe. You have to cut the hiflow out, and then add the pipe. I cut my stock cat out of my stock exhaust and had it flanged, as well as the hiflow, and had them make me a race pipe, so when emissions time comes, I just will bolt up the stock cat and drive like that for a day or two, smog it, then put the race pipe back in. :lol:

Re: Vibrant Exhaust on Today....Clips soon

how much will a place charge(rough estimate) to flange up the stock cat and put a race pipe on my mazdaspeed exhaust? I want to be able to swap from cat to race pipe as well. Race pipes give the exhaust so much more power for what I have read and this really tempts me to do it.

Cost was $100 for everything. I also had them add alittle pipe so that my vibrant wouldnt hit my gas tank (Pzev issue)

Re: Vibrant Exhaust on Today....Clips soon
