BWD up-pipes and coated housing installed

I finally got my ceramic coated up-pipes, ceramic coated exhaust housing and ceramic coated high flow outlet installed last night. I also removed the foil off the intercooler pipe while I was at it. I thought with everything ceramic coated that my EGT's would go up, but I am seeing a 100degree drop on regular driving. Have not towed yet. With the TN BB turbo, before I spooled at about 1500rpms, and now it starts at about 1200rpms. With the coated stuff it is spooling quicker and the whistle is also louder. These up-pipes are a PITA to install but are a great made product. Removing the foil off that up-pipe is almost worst than installing the up-pipes.

I bet you don't have that cold morning leaky uppipes any more. I was thinking about these uppipes yesterday. Bet they are nice.

You probably picked up some hp with the foil delete also.

How was the alignment of the pipes at the manifolds? My passenger side was perfect but the drivers side was off some. I was able to suck it into place with the bolts though.

I had the same situation when installing my up-pipes.

Coope

Glad you got those installed. The drop in EGT's would be due to the high flow outlet. The lower RPM spool up and quicker response would be the pipes and housing, and the outlet. We measured some drop in drive pressure, and averaged about 75-100 degree drop in temps with the high flow outlet.

Re: BWD up-pipes and coated housing installed

It took about 4 hours to install the turbo,outlet,and uppipes with a couple of beer breaks, but I had to take the turbo off to put the coated high flow outlet, and coated exhaust housing on, plus removed foil on the intercooler pipe. The drivers side was a little hard to line up.

Don't expect to do all of the above in 4 hours if you've never done it before, or don't have some friends.

Re: BWD up-pipes and coated housing installed

i would think EGTs would be lower since the heat to spin the turbine is more "efficient".... heat is held in so it takes less heat to do the same job.
