Re: 200 Cell Cats?

What modifications do you have in mind?
[/quote]

In order:
Down tubes and Cats
Resonator delete
VAP crank pulley and tune
Larger intake tubes
Ported charger (not for gains they are negligible but to reduce heat/compression/cavitation)
Super pulley
Dyno and see AFR maybe retune and see what’s next

Re: 200 Cell Cats?

I would count high flow cats as a supporting modification if the stock cat / exhaust system is limiting increased flow resulting from other modifications. It's an expensive way to gain a very small amount of power if any. Agreed. With forced induction motors I like to open up the exhaust first befo...

Re: Hood Vents

I have considered it but would worry about either positive or negative air pressure (depending on the location) in the engine bay at higher speeds. It may not be an issue for us since we have double hood clips. Back in the 90's I had a buddy that installed two "ram air" scoops and had his hood flip ...

200 Cell Cats?

Is anyone running 200 cell catalytic converters on an SC 3.0? If so, does it change the exhaust node much or at all? I love the tone of my exhaust Any dyno numbers on increases? Even if it just your butt dyno? Every place that offers them does not state a number. In my past experiences that converts...

Re: XE-S Track Day

I run Porterfield R4-S‘s on all 4 corner and they have been solid so far. As far as the rotors if you have a lead in chamfer the noise should be almost nil. I could not tell or tell any difference in noise regardless of temperature. My cat is my daily driver, if you were in the passenger seat you’d ...

Re: XE-S Track Day

I have not tracked it but will be this summer. My experience is playing in the hills and valleys. I would upgrade pads for sure. Stock you will notice fading pretty quickly, we have relatively heavy cars. If you are in an area with some hills and twisties, go down the hill with speed and then come u...

Re: Brake disc replacement

It's not too painful at all. I upgraded to R4-S pads and slotted rotors last fall. The only issue was figuring out how to get around the emergency brake always engaging when the car is turned off. So the trick with that is you have to put the ignition into accessory mode and disengage the E parking ...

Re: Rwd vs Awd rim sizes

Good news then I can stagger them with 255's in the back. Right now I have Cinturato P7's 225's on all 4 corners and they are less than desirable.....

Also switching to Pilot 4S's

Thanks

Re: To debadge or not to debadge?

I debadged mine because XE 35t AWD is just way too much, it looks cleaner debadged imo. Not to mention trying to explain it is not a 3.5l turbo to folks at car shows is worth its weight in gold!
