Aside from a test fit, possible tweaks, and coating, these should be complete.

Here's a walk around:

They look really good!! Vid is a little shaky and blurry, but those should make some good powah. Gonna look a little goofy under the hood, though, lol. You gonna get them ceramic coated?

Equal length tubes and bigger collectors, as well as the fact that they're gonna clear his 4T60-E.

My TOGs clear the 60.

For what they have over current aftermarket:
Equal length primaries to the length I calculated
True merge collectors (not just pipes pushed into a void)
The primary inlets match the exhaust port angle instead of making a nasty turn
And all connections will be with v-bands.

Did you make the 3 into 1 collectors or did you find them somewhere?

Very creative. =D>

Hope the thermal expansion doesn't break those braces.

Can't wait to hear them bark! :banana:

Thanks.

I'm not super worried about thermal expansion. If everything was stainless, I would be though.

For the 3-1 merge collectors, I found someone on ebay that was selling 1-off collectors similar to what I wanted and asked him to make the two 3-1s and one 2-1 to the sizes I was after.

The TOGs will definitely be ready for sale this winter.

The car is going down mechanical as early as December. I'm buying a 5 spd i30 that I swapped a VQ35 into years ago off my buddy, as a beater, while I work on/in my engine bay. I'm going to test fit the long tubes, make sure everything clears, make any necessary tweaks, and drive them up to jet-hot in PA.

The goal is to have these LTs in along with the new engine and trans by the spring. I just have a laundry list of while the drivetrain is out things I would like to do..

LMK about your TOG's, how much, etc. I'm definitely interested.

I got a couple test fits in and had to modify the rear header and cross over. But they fit good now:

The exhaust note didn't really change much from open DP TOGs. But it may with load.
