tye-bo In process of making a new exhaust, V1 is basically 3" Plack exhaust. We will be developing a resonator muffler system for it. All stainless steel high class hater pipe!

All This for a freakin' expansion valve....

That little worm on the top of the old part is not supposed to be there... somehow, this guy puked his guts out.

And the worst part is that the service manual specifically says that to remove the expansion valve, you need to remove the HVAC airbox; so after draining the coolant, separating power steering lines, removing the undertray, removing the frame brace, and basically spending another four hours after removing the clam, I found out that all I had to do is remove the two allen head bolts holding the expansion valve in place - the back plate that the bolts screw into was stuck to the pipes and stayed right there, didn't fall into the airbox! Shoot me now!

All jokes aside, If we're talking about collectors I would assume it has to do with the fact that a 2zz has to push 400bhp worth of exhaust through a single 3" collector from a single header while a 2GR has 2 collectors from 2 different headers off of 3 cylinders only contributing half the total horsepower. 2.5" piping was probably shown to provide adequate flow for the required exhaust volume while maintaining velocity for scavenging.

Why does BOE use a 3" header on their 400bhp 2ZZ TVS1320 install but a smaller 2.5" header on their 400bhp V6 install?
I know nothing about the 2ZZ engine setups from any supplier. The runners on the BOE Evora headers are not 2.5" but much smaller with a step up. They do collect into 2.5" did as that was the Lotus standard fro the exhaust systems on the s1 cars.

Most issues I've heard of are getting everything lined up during the reassembly, no issues there? Are there washers and spacers in some areas but not others? I still need to take mine off.

Redsled Changed lug bolts to black studs and nuts that I bought from GRP, I think it's a big improvement

Tell me again why BOE use a 3" bore on their 2ZZ TVS install (approx 400bhp) but only 2.5" bore on a 400bhp V6?

bruss Finally got around to fitting the cf seats.

Firm but around 1/3 the weight of the Recaros. Goes with the gold wheels though the rest of the interior is red thread!

Alternative is to add a header system, they all still seem to be based on the old 2.5" exhaust. I would recommend going with the BOE long tube headers.
Haha, as much as I want the BOE kit, I don't know if I would sleep well at night knowing that I'd be reducing the exhaust size. Whelp, looks like it's time to make my own exhaust...

Unfortunately, too typical.. At least that's not as bad as being asked if this is the new Ford.
