3" downpipe fabrication

3 posts in this topic

Anyone have pictures of an installed 3" downpipe on a 2000-2003 s40? I got my downpipe fabbed up but clearance is a huge issue. My downpipe is 1/4" from the powersteering pressure line. Going to run stainless braided powersteering lines and will have the room I need.

I can see where I went wrong. During the manifold fabrication phase I should have offset the turbo to the drivers side of the engine bay to have safe clearance but I opted out due to unequal location of the turbo flange on the log style manifold. For now I just want it to run and get my inspection sticker so I can actually have a car to drive,lol. Shortly after inspection I will be fabbing up a stainless steel twin scroll manifold with the turbo offset for plenty of safe room for the downpipe. At the moment I'm in the process of making custom stainless steel exhaust flanges for the downpipe to connect to the flexpipe and cat.
