Re: Meet GheyRay: Lower, Wider, Lighter!

Well, I guess this officially makes me a South Dakotan... The Corvette license plate was the final bit of Texas I was clinging to

Re: Meet GheyRay: Lower, Wider, Lighter!

Finally got the AFE pipes back from the coater (https://www.facebook.com/SSPowderCoating/) and had them installed by the local Corvette specialty shop (https://www.facebook.com/CustomImageCorvettes/)...who would have known Watertown had one?!

Factory cat pipes w/DEI heatshields:


AFE pipes before coating:



AFE pipes after coating:


Here are some comparison pics of the pipe inlets and cat density showing, in theory, how much more restrictive the factory pipes are:




Vs.


I only have a few miles on then so far to cure the coating, but so far no CEL. I've gotten on the car a bit and it definitely has some additional volume to it; same with start-up and idle. Tour mode while cruising still seems plenty tame for roadtrips though which is exactly what I wanted.

I have a tank of 93 right now so I'll get some logs off to my tuner this weekend, then once that tank is gone we'll get it done again with the local 91 available in-town.

Nothing out of the ordinary yet, even when idling in the garage, but I'll probably need more time/miles to accurately make that claim.

I figured I'd at least try since it keeps a good amount of heat away from the oil cooler and dry-sump oil lines! The ceramic coating should help quite a bit as well. I thought about having the shop that did the install wrap at least the pre-cat section of pipe, but I really didn't want to risk having a cracked weld down the road sometime. I'll have to be very careful not to scratch up the coating with the blankets' metal standoffs though since I don't want it flaking off. I'll likely give it a try and see if/how they fit while swapping out the shocks. Speaking of, here's my thread on that: https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...k-failure.html

DOH!!!



Looks like I'll be having my tuner disable the code. I could have used non-foulers as I knew it was a 50/50 risk per AFE but I'm fine just having it disabled.
