I think he's gonna make me one too, or possibly a full exhaust if I ask nicely.

Or you could use “persuasion” like you did on his spare

I like how you think.

Might just be worth it.... about to bolt it on. Pretty close to equal length anyway.

It sounds alot different now. Its not a deep gurgle anymore, its higher pitched and smoother.

All he did was replace the 2.25" somewhat kinked piping and factory (restricted) Y with smoother 2.5" mandrel bent with a higher flow Y that is close to equal length. Still has his last 2 cats removed. Still has the dirty deed muffler with 2.5" piping out back. Has headers on order.

He wanted to be the only V8 4runner running duals but knows that's gonna be alot of work so he just set it up for a single right now. And run it all HC out the side of the rear bumper eventually lol.

I'm just amazed that it can be built in our garage. It's surprising what used to seem so complicated turns out pretty simple once you learn a thing or two. A Tig welder, a little bit of practice, harbor freight bandsaw, about $500 in tubing + flanges etc...

@jamesepoop you might be interested in this.

@Iconic_ woooo that's looking baaaaad! Prototype for your FJ soon? The Y pipe is so restrictive and our 1GR is no V8 but exhaust flow is so important. Can you share an exhaust clip?

By the way. Parts are not cheap. People expect an exhaust to be cheap performance but that price is cheap/reasonable for custom and prototypes.

I'll post a clip as soon as we make one. I'd like to have one for my FJ eventually. Probably 2.25". You may already know this but equal length gains more on our V6's due to the firing order of the cylinders vs. his "uneven" V8. I was a little surprised at the cost for the tubing. The pre-made Y is almost $100 by itself tho. I could make a front bumper myself for less than $500 in materials lol.
