Yes but you will have to remove it and have exhaust re-routing pipes made up. Have seen it done but it is all by hand... Vance and Hines makes a realy nice set of pipes for this....

FIERO GT V6 THE MANIFOKL IS GETING RED AFTER START THE ENGINE, WHAT I HAVE TO DO?


That is usually caused by a plugged exhaust system. Either the converter / pre-converter or muffler is plugged. Also check to make sure EGR valve is working properly

Where in the engine is the catalytic converter


The catalytic converter is part of the exhaust system and is usually found under the vehicle, and the exhaust will run from the exhaust manifold to a pre-catalytic converter, and then down to the catalytic converter, and then the exhaust will run from the catalytic converter to the exhaust muffler, and then continue out to the end of the tail pipe.
I have provided an image of the catalytic converter to help assist you.

My grand daughter has a 100 CC yamaha dirt bike. It is lacking power. Her Dad did not use the oil/gas mixer, having opted to pre mix his own gas. I have degunked the exhaust up to where it goes into the...


perhaps he used too rich of a oils gas mixture, not to familiar with that model, but maybe check the exhaust systems spark arrestor at the end of the muffler, maybe 1 screw holds it in, twist and pull it out and check for excess carbon/oil builds up. clean and replace, next would be a compression test, pull spark plug, put thumb on plug hole tightly, kick the starter, if it blows your finger off the hole its probably OK.

Muffler exhaust blows debris in front of mower


Most likely the problem if this is a reoccuring problem is that either the muffler flnge or head mounting surface is mis-formed and not totally flat, sometime the easiest and cheapest fix is to get longer mounting bolts and installing multiple gaskets between the 2 surfaces to give more room for forgiveness at the mis-shapen parts, anouther solution I have done is installed a metal deflection plate in the area where the exhuast blows out to deffect the exhaust to an area where it does not cause problems. Hope this helps solve the problem Don

EXHAUST LEAK


Ok where at in the exhaust system is it at? If its at the engine then you will have to have the exhaust gasket replaced, if its somewhere in the piping or the pre muffler or muffler then that will have to be replaced.

Is$175.00 for one flowmaster super 44 series muffler too much?


Heres the bottom line...My dad used to tell me that nothing is worth more than you are wiling to pay for it.
What you now have is a mix of unmatched components that sound nice, and possibly may give you a one or two mpg increase. However, a good exhaust system is carefully engineered to take advantage of sonic as well as physical, laws that influence the way both sound and air (exhaust) behave in certain diameter pipes, when traveling at pre-determined speeds.
Most stock exhaust is far from that, rather, it is the cheapest easiest means to permit exhaust to escape from the engine while making the least amount of noise, while keeping the converter operating. Therefore anything you do to lower pressure will give you somewhat of a performance gain. In using a part of the stock system, you cancel some of that gain by creating another restriction. I'd be satisfied with what you have but would be concerned about passing a state inspection. If you want to learn more about exhaust and how it influences your engine there are many good books you can read on this subject. (I know that because I probably read them all as a pro racer).
Good luck with your Jeep!!!
