Glad your enjoying the system...

Mine broke in somewhere after 750 miles. :cool:


i dont think its a matter of leverage. i cant hear any leaks...i even ran it while i was under there and i had my hand around the flange and i could feel no gas or heat. on the stock manifold i took the ring off and there is about 7/16" of 2.5" pipe that the ring sits on and the space inside the pts flange to the pipe only allowed about 1/8" of the 2.5" manifold pipe into it. everything else fits flawlessly.
The two forward flanges that attach to the manifolds were desgined to have just a bit of space in between.. So that the OEM crush gasket will still work for a 2nd time use... ;)

In other words we didn't make it flush fit on purpose.. Our two flanges are CNC'd in that area, which allows the oem crush gasket to sit perfectly in between the sandwich for a leak free seal.

You have one of the newest built systems.. The welds were still warm when you received it..:p

Regards,

Joe Z

much props to joez. exhaust is already quieting down quite a bit, and it sounds even better. i've put about 200km on the new combo, intake/exhaust (i reset the ecu) and i must say the whole throttle is definitely more fluid in normal mode, and sport mode you can hear the sharpness a lot more then just feeling it. the k&n intake and pts exhaust sing beautifully in the mid rpm and sound absolutely terrifying wide open. i am definately in love even more.

i also think that cruising around town, its much quieter then stock, at 1100-1300rpm it doesnt even sound like the engine is running really.....
Thank You

Very glad to hear you are happy!! I hope it was worth the wait... :D

I agree on your crusing statement.. Freeway driving is still VERY LEXUS LUXURY like!!!

Enjoy,

Joe Z :cool:
