HKS Silent Hi-Power update..

Postby Meurz » Sun Sep 10, 2006 9:06 pm

Now fitted! :D Friggen nice shit! Sound is VERY nice, a very low rumble but not too loud (note that dp and mp are stock for now) And the looks.. Just check the pics out.. 8)

This morning I got up early (well, compared to a normal sunday :lol: ) and I'm glad I took the rear seats out Carlos otherwise I'd never been able to take the exhaust with me.. After arriving at my mates work, we took some pics and vids for the before/after compilation vid I'll post later on. During the lunch break the car could cool down nicely and after that we put El Matador on the lift. I started removing the rear crossmember, to create space around the flanges and to be able to wiggle the muffler to take it out later:

Image

Because I almost broke a bolt during the first attempt to unbolt the rear section, I decided to use a proven method from the past :D :

Image

When the rear sections were split, they came out much easier and I decided to take a final shot before the HKS went on (I completely forgot to weigh the HKS btw :oops: ):

Image

Before starting the installation, always read the manual!

Image

HKS fitting time:

Image

While dryfitting the crossmember again I noticed there wasn't much space between the member and zaust, so to prevent weird sounds and dings in both parts, I modded the crossmember a bit:

Image

After a final check on all bolts and rubbers the CS got back on its wheels, and I LOVE the new look of the car:

Some rear quarter shots:

I hope I have the before/after vid ready today or tomorrow.

instead of modifying the crossmember; couldnt one have dropped it down with a couple of washers? i think that was the solution for most motoria system users. umm but other than that, i may go that route (the route of modifying it. do you think you can get a pic of it so i can see where i might have to grind the crossmember (if its no trouble for you). ALSO, i really like that pic of you readin the manual upside down. must be a netherland thing... :twisted:

No silly, the Manual is in Japanese.. and since the Japanese read right to left, it has to be upside-down =) :twisted:

Very nice lookin muffler.. Love the install photos..

Can you get any audio clips? Video clips?

only if it's traditional column-style vertical writing, which I don't think is the case with the muffler manual :D

Is HKS the only model on which the muffler is looking up, i.e. not horizontally aligned?

It's not the muffler, it's in the pipes.

Looks great man, and can I borrow your car lift? :P

When do we get to see videos and hear the sound? I've been contemplating on the HKS system (bent between the silent and the regular hi po one, I hear the hi po is loud as $#!t but I figured I want people to move out of my way when I'm coming through).

Vids should be here in a few hours. The oldskool Hi-Power is discontinued, but you may be able to find one somewhere. The main reason I went for the Silent is that it's completely stainless where the Hi-Power has mild steel piping. The Silent muffler is also 3" straight through btw, you look straight into the bend behind the muffler. :D
