Hey guys hows its going.

I Just registered today and Im looking at being a vendor on this forum. I conatacted the admin for some information and based on what feedback you guys give me I would like to become a vendor on here.

A little info about Exhaust Depot:

Im located in fort lauderdale and I specialise in custom mandrel bent Exhaust systems which most likely your muffler shop cant do. I like to make systems that the big companies are afraid of doing. :)

For those who dont know what a mandrel bend is:

A press bent pipe is a pipe that your muffler shop bends on a pipe bender. Lets say you bend a 2.5" pipe, at the bend it gets crushed and goes down to about 2" or so. A mandrel bend is uniformed and the bend does not reduce down. This gives you a 3% to 11% increase in flow.


I also stock resonators, glasspacks, exhaust tips, hangers etc.


Here is a custom TRUE DUAL system for a 4.7L standard size 4 door. The truck had a magnaflow muffler with dual tailpipes (press bent). The truck made a nice difference in HP when we swapped it out to our system.

The system requires you to cut the Y-section off (after the cat) then you slip this system on. The pipes go into a mandrel bent x-pipe which balance out the exhaust pulses from each bank and give you better volumetric efficiency durring valve overlap. It goes into a dual two chamber muffler then into mandrel bent tailpipes and out the 3.5" roll edge or angle cut tips.

The system sounds awsome and the great part about it is that there is no droning inside. If you want a more aggressive sound then the muffler can be replaces with glass packs.


Anyways, I hope I can be of assistance to you guys and hope I can becoming a lasting member of this board.

God Bless,

Hector

How about for a 5.7 Hemi?

I assume you also do a system for the Hemi...
I currently have mopar long tube headers, dual
high flow cats (which I need to keep), which
then go into a y-pipe, single in - dual out muffler.
I really like the look of your system. Even if you
do not become a sponsor, I would be interested.
Can you PM me with an idea of the price? I am
in MD, so I will need to have it shipped.

looks good but what are your prices, if i were you i would hesitant to be a sponsor only because your market is limited to florida and would benefit from all the other members around the nation/world. Unless you were willing to ship.

I plan on working on a hemi setup some time this week and maybe even a highflow cat setup with removable racepipe?

I had borrowed my buddies truck with a HEMI first (because if you where really into power yo would have gotten a hemi from the start no? :) ) only to see that his hemi had a cat AFTER the Y. So I did not want to do anything that would not make the california guys happy. :) The good news for me is that I was told by other owners that most of them have two cats vs one. :)

IM trying to find out what year his is.

90% of my business is shipping. :) I purchased the first srt-4 back in feb of 03 for parts purposes. Ive shipped many of those out. This truck setup I designed it around UPS and their box sizes. Thats why i made the tailpipe in two pieces and the left one in 3 pieces. So i can ship them out.


I cant post up prices yet because im not a member. Also the price will be based on what options you want etc. If you want just the piping with no tips muffler etc. Like i said I can do what ever you like with this setup. If your a magnaflow fan or borla fan vs chambered mufflers, i can sell you the pipes setup which should fit a standard 4x9" muffler thats offset offset.

Thanks for your reply.

Only the 03 hemi trucks have 1 cat. The 04-06's all have 2 cats

So are you saying that I can order (when you get the hemi version) from the dual high-flow cats back? That would be all the piping and tips. I was going to replace with a Magnaflow 40, but would consider dual magnaflow 40s, if that works.

Hec,
Welcome to DT, it's a GREAT place!! :rck: Your system looks nice. Mandrel bent is the ONLY way to go with exhaust. PLEASE don't take this the wrong way, but I have heard (on THIS site) that the 4.7's don't do very well with duals, expecially true duals. In the area of HP and torque they actually go DOWN when you put on a dual system. Did you run this truck with the sysyem on it that is in the pictures? Any noticeable performance gain or loss?
I just noticed that you have what looks to be coat hangers??? holding up the ends of the pipes by the tips. You do plan on having something more like a REAL exhaust hanger in their place, don't you? I'm sure it's just the prototype system you have pictures of.

Well right now I will make for sure a setup that fits the OEM cat setup. It will require you to make a cut about 6" behind each cat then slip my setup on. I dont know what type of highflow cat setup you have but it gets crazy when you try make your setup fit various headers, cats etc.

IM sure my 4.7 setup will fit your hemi with minor muffler shop modifications.

LOL, no im suppling left over wiring that my electrician left over to hold up the rear tips. Real hangers is an upgrade :)

That pictured is a prototype. The f inal unit I had the tailpipe actualy go behind the shock vs inbetween teh shock and the tire because a 20" tire gives you less space. Also I was able to make the tailpipe sit higher up almost touching the bed to give better clearance for those who like to load up their trucks.


The truck pictures is my neighboors truck. He had a magnaflow muffler with a single inlet and dual outlet. WHen I installed my setup it made a nice difference in HP vs his previous setup. I wish I would have had his truck when it was stock so i could have seen how much power the butt dynoed showed. :)



OH yeah MD ram, chambered mufflers sound better than a magnaflow setup. I have not dynoed anything but I think the magnaflow will probly make more HP but they sound to mild for me. The chambered setup sounds a whole lot better. Also if your going from a flowmaster single inlet with dual outlet into a dual magnaflow it would sound quiter. When you use two mufflers in a true dual setup, its quieter than a single muffler setup. This is why i prefer the chambers.

I dunno, the quality of your system looks top notch, but how about adding more options? Different muffler brands, sizes, different exhaust exit locations etc. What would be awesome for me, was if you produced a AT3030 system that exits right before the rear tire, all nice and mandrel bent etc. Can you do that sort of thing? Or is it just that one muffler or glasspack and rear exits?

Yeah, it's a subject that has been gone over time and again.
But I think the end consensus was that most of the people that had gone with true duals had gone too big. The one that worked for the 287 was dual 2 1/4" pipes (can't remember who it was that did it). It's the same as trying to put a mail order Hemi cat-back system on one of ours, it's just too much flow with not enough scavenging.

Hey Hector, I've been considering a move to a more full exhaust w/a cutout. Could you do 2 1/4" pipes all the way to the back, tucking them behind the bumper with turndowns? I like the stealth of a dumped exhaust, even if I'm dumping it AFTER the rear axle.

Heck, I might even have to make the trek south for this one, lol. :D

Anything custom and out of the ordinary requires you to take a vacation to sunny Ft.Lauderdale. :)

2.25" tubing I use for v6 engines. 2.5" tubing for a 4.7 is ideal.

I hate electonic cutouts cause they all leak. Everyoen of them that I have done leaked after a few weeks and they dont sound to nice.
