http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif to EIP and some seriously good directions with lots of detailed pictures to follow. Sure there is a little droan but if you keep the car above 3k it's actually pretty good.
Will report back later on to see how she settles in but I'm liking this mod so far (like many others have)

Does your left side tip stick out more than the right? Also, does your tips come out further when the exhaust gets hot?

Yes and yes. The picture was taken after running down the shop so the car was "warm" but not "hot". I tried to get the tips to align as best as I can (not easy) so there is a little difference but not too much.

In my experience, it took quite a bit of adjustment to get the left and right tips to line up. It involved a lot of shoving on the hangars followed by attentive torquing of the midpipe bolts.
And in my experience, yes, they do come out quite a bit when hot.


By the way, for anyone who think that the Street Series might not be aggressive enough in sound, I believe it's more than aggressive enough. Everyone on my block hears me coming and going even when I'm driving casually and I set off car alarms on a regular basis just by turning the car on.

Any idea on why it does that?

Almost all exhausts (inc stock) poke out when they are hot. It's just the metal expanding I think (not 100% sure though)

Re: EIP Street Series Exhaust Review (rabbitgtibbar)

well i guess it's a great system "as long as you always stay above 3k"
that really sucks imo, what was the point of the resonator then? I am having to weld a resonator in tommorrow on my comp series and I am crossing my fingers that it eliminates it

glad you like it, wish eip would hurry up with a fix for another "perfect" system

btw, i have nothing against EIP as a company, just the products they put out on the market

Awesome information, I am considering doing this on my car as well as I like the stock exhaust but want something a bit more.
Thanks for the good info!

Re: EIP Street Series Exhaust Review (NO ID)

Just so you guys know.. Stainless has a 'memory' and it tries to straigten out any bends for about the first month while it's hot.. it eventually gives up.. it's almost like a tempering effect

Re: EIP Street Series Exhaust Review (White R32)

Just in general, how vulnerable is stainless steel to metal fatigue at those temps during its first month? Is fatigue even an issue? Would you recommend not aligning the tips until after the first month then?

Re: EIP Street Series Exhaust Review (nuppal)

there are no issues with stainless expanding and contracting at any point in time, it will continue to do so forever without problems, the only issue could be crappy welds that may crack, but I checked out there welds when I was up at the GTG and they were top notch so they should have any problems, as for tip alignment the tech at the GTG that installed mine moved the rear valence to make it line up better
