Extreme RC Mods Pipe installed with pics

Hey guys.

Finally got some pics downloaded but first a couple things I noticed right away as soon as I picked up the pipe for the first time. First of all is it is heavy...not in a bad way, though. You pick up a stock resonator or THS pipe and it's like a feather. This ERCM pipe is stainless steel and will be as durable as they get. The second is the quality of the craftsmanship. Robin's welds are near perfect and I dare anyone to try to bend the pipe hanger mount. As you can see I picked the raw version (you can also get it polished to a mirror finish for the same price)...IMHO it just looks mean.

After some research I grabbed an Ofna CRT.5 header. Since I did not now how everything was going to fit, I ended up cutting the flange off the header and use a silicone coupler. I am glad I did (you can get Robin's pipe in a 1 piece pipe setup). The coupler I used is actually from my old NTC3 and it works perfectly. The header clears my pullstart and, with a little grinding, was also able to rotate the pipe down enough to also clear my Tekno throttle linkage.

Here is a link to ERCM's website so you can see the different options.


The BB side bleed runs great with my ERMC modded 3.3. Robin is going to send me an insert for the stinger to reduce it's inner diameter...increasing backpressure. I don't think it will need it but I will try it once I get it. The first time out, with a bit of an header leak (which I am going to fix right now) I was seeing good bottom end and great top end with temps barely over 200F. And the sound...did I mention it sounds unbelievable...not as loud as I expected but enough that it will make everyone take notice. Definitely a power increase across the board compared to the stock DC Resonator. I am going to play a bit with the header/pipe spacing and see how it goes.

Now for the pics...

Quick video...


Running very rich with a leaky header. Should be interesting once I get a good performance tune (plus fix the leak).
