Silencer/muffler Problem

Question

Guys,

Went to Elcardo today as my silencer sounded like it had holes in it. They checked it out and told me all the piping had to be redone. I checked out some earlier threads and everyone seems to recommend the place.

I'm a complete noob at this. Is there anything I should know regarding this replacement? The type of piping, that kinda thing. Don't want them pulling a fast one on me.

Thanks

Hey BigD, are you sure that Elcardo was 'recommended' in previous threads ????

I suggest you review the threads bit more further ... :rolleyes:

afaik elcardo still uses crush bending to fabricate exhaust units. so depending on the quality of your original exhaust system this won't make any difference other than curing the rattle and probably robbing some of the performance.

Well, the several that I read did recommend Elcardo. I'll read further. Any other places you can recommend?

Less performance from new pipes? How does that happen?

Thanks. Whereabouts is that?

crush bending is so called because bending pipes using this method involves the inside of the bend being pushed inwards during the process. this makes the pipes narrower at the bends creating backpressure that brings down the efficiency of an engine.

Personally I too would go with wepr if i want a good aftermarket exhaust system. its one of the few organisations with mandrel benders and probably the only one of them that fabricates exhaust systems with them.
