Question about Exhaust for Nissan 200SX

1 Answer

Hi, my 200sx has been fitted with an exhaust (not by me) which has a stainless steel 3inch pipe running from the cat-back, but goes in to a backbox which has what looks like a 1, maybe 1 1/2 inch pipe in it, going to a 4 inch tip. It sounds lovely, but seems to be really struggling to pick up as it should do? Am I wrong in thinking that pushing all that down a 3 inch pipe, and then forcing it through a smaller pipe would cause a lag such as this? many thanks Jim

2002 saturn sl exhaust system its located under the manifold but above the cadilitic converter... It looks like a stainless steel mesh and flexible, its 2inch pipe by 8 inches long


guessing you are referring to the flex section of the exhaust pipe that allows engine movement separate to moving the exhaust system
it is a stainless steel convoluted section enclosed insulation by the mesh and are subject to failure from work hardening of the stainless steel section from improperly maintained exhaust system mounting rubbers ( broken)
can be replaced by any accredited exhaust repair shop

Stainless Steel 316 Pipe


Stainless steel type 316 is part of a family of stainless steel alloys (304, 316, 904L). The 316 family is a group of austenitic stainless steels with superior corrosion resistance to Stainless Steel 304. This alloy is suitable for welding because it has a carbon content lower than 301 to 303 series alloys to avoid carbide precipitation in welding applications. The addition of molybdenum and a slightly higher nickel content make Stainless Steel 316 Pipe suitable for architectural applications in severe settings, from polluted marine environments to areas with sub-zero temperatures. Equipment in the chemical, food, paper, mining, pharmaceutical and petroleum industries often includes Stainless Steel 316.
Stainless Steel 316 pipe manufactured at Duplex Supply Inc. are long, hollow tubes that can be used for a number of purposes. They are an integral part of the piping systems. The first methods for producing steel pipe were introduced in the early 1800s, and they have steadily evolved into the modern processes we use today. Pipe systems around the world involve connections which are provided by fittings. Steel pipes are consumed in bulk and provide for onward transmission of liquids and gases. They can be connected to fittings by welding and the structure is supported by connection of flanges. Steel pipes available in two types: Seamless Steel Pipes and Welded Steel Pipes. For both types we first cast raw steel into a more workable starting form. We then make it into a pipe by stretching the steel out into a seamless tube or by forcing the edges together and sealing them with a weld.

How much does it cost for the exhaust


Most after-market exhaust companies offer four types of components:
  1. Cat-back exhaust systems - anywhere from $300 to $1200 - The final cost will depend on steel thickness and type, as well as muffler quality.
  2. Axle-back exhaust systems - same as above
  3. High performance mufflers - $75-$300 - The quality of the muffler's materials inside, as well as the type of steel and thickness used, impact the final price.
  4. Exhaust system tips - $25-$150 per tip - Almost all cat-back or axle-back systems include a quality exhaust tip. However, if you're building your own system, you can purchase an exhaust tip to "dress up" your factory pipe.
The schematic below shows where the "cat" (a.k.a. catalytic converter) is in relation to the engine. While many companies sell high-performance catalytic converters, they are fairly expensive and usually don't restrict exhaust flow too much, so we're not going to worry about them here.
alt="Exhaust system schematic with notes">

This is a stylized schematic of an exhaust system.
On some vehicles, the muffler is mounted behind the rear axle. In this case, exhaust manufacturers sell "axle-back" systems. The only difference between a cat-back and an axle-back exhaust is the length of tubing - both include a new muffler. Therefore, there's not a lot of cost difference between the two. Both cat-back and axle-back systems include tubing, a muffler(s), and then all the hardware needed to mount the new system in place of the factory system. Most of the time, these systems use the factory exhaust hangers to make install as easy as possible.
Since a high-performance muffler is a part of a cat-back or axle-back exhaust system, buying a muffler by itself is usually the least expensive option in terms of parts cost. Keep in mind, however, that mufflers have higher labor costs. They're not necessarily less expensive by the time all the labor costs have been accounted for.
Muffler Only vs. Cat-back or Axle-back The biggest advantage in purchasing a full cat-back or axle-back system is that install is really simple. Many of these systems can be installed at home with basic tools. Conversely, installing a muffler at home may not be so simple - cutting and welding may be required. What's more, some after market mufflers require significant re-routing of your stock exhaust tubing...and that can get expensive very quickly.
The other advantage in a full cat-back or axle-back system is that they are often tuned to your specific vehicle and the included muffler(s). All things being equal, a cat-back or axle-back system will perform slightly better than a muffler only.
Stainless Steel vs Aluminized or Galvanized Steel The main difference between a stainless steel exhaust system and an aluminized or galvanized system is durability. Stainless systems will last a lifetime due to their ability to resist corrosion, with 200 300 series stainless systems being more resistant than 300 200 series systems (only the difference is slight). Some manufacturers will try and convince you that one type of stainless system (200, 300, or 400) has better sound quality than another, but there's no evidence we're aware of to support these claims. In fact, stainless steel tends to be slightly thinner than aluminizied steel. If anything, an aluminized system may have better sound quality.
Having said that, the muffler itself is the biggest factor in sound. The steel used in the system isn't as important as some make it out to be (at least in terms of sound quality).
When it comes to choosing between stainless and aluminized systems, it's important to consider your local environment. If you live in an area where corrosion risks are high (such as cold-weather areas that use salt to de-ice roadways), stainless steel may be a reasonable upgrade because it will resist rust. On the other hand, if your local environment is dry and the corrosion risks are low, the only reason to buy a stainless system is for looks.
Exhaust Tips There are probably thousands of different exhaust system tips available. Generally speaking, you get what you pay for. Stainless steel tips are very resistant to corrosion, but they don't shine up as nicely as chrome. Also, stainless steel tips are more likely to "blue", or change color during use. Titanium is also a material used to make exhaust tips - it's incredibly corrosion resistant, but just like stainless it's prone to blue during use. If you like the blue coloring, titanium is probably your best choice. If you want the shiny look, chrome is the way to go. If you want a tip that you can shine up every once in a while - but that's also resistant to the elements - stainless is a smart choice.
Exhaust System Labor Costs If you purchase a cat-back or axle-back exhaust system, labor costs are often very low. These systems bolt-on and use the existing factory hangers. In fact, many performance shops will install a cat-back exhaust system free of charge if you purchase it directly from them.
If you decide you want to purchase a muffler only, you'll want to get an install estimate from your local exhaust shop BEFORE you buy that muffler. Sometimes, installation is very straightforward and the cost is as little as $100. Other times, fabrication is required and the cost can be as high as $300 (or more). If the installation requires a lot of fabrication, you may be better off buying a cat-back or axle-back system instead.

Stop leaking?


There should be rubber hoses at either end of the metal pipe to allow for engine ,movement. It would be black steel pipe and it rusts out from lack of coolant conditioner.. A final fix for this would be to take it to a muffler/ exhaust shop and have a new pipe bent to shape made out of exhaust stainless steel tubing

What is the best steel for a hunting knife?


Right now the best steel as far as stainless steel is S35VN stainless steel. It surpasses the S30V steel. But if you want the best carbon steel, personally I would go with D2 steel. It is such a good steel that it is considered a semi-stainless steel.

But to really help you out, it's not the type of steel that's the most important thing. It is the way the steel is heat tempered and hardened. If it is not properly heat treated and hardened, then the steel is worthless as far as knives go. If the HRC is too high for the type of steel/ stainless steel, then the blade will be brittle and chip or break easier.

If the steel's HRC aka Rockwell hardness is too low, then it will easily bend and will not hold an edge well at all.

Each steel and stainless steel have their own HRC tolerance level Going above or below its HRC tolerance makes for a bad knife blade.

Can stainless steel rust?


Unfortunately yes, any stainless steel product can get rusty under some circumstances although a stainless steel is much more resistant to corrosion and rust. I suggest you to get stainless steel if you don't want to replace your silverware and kitchen product every couple of months.

Can I remove the cat coverter without harming the engine function


The fine print about catalytic converters is that they are required in many municipalities. Some places do not require them. If you are in a place which doesn't, you can fit a piece of exhaust pipe, known as a "test pipe,"where the catalytic converter normally goes. If you do this, make sure that any sensors in that part of the exhaust stay in the exhaust, as the engine needs them to run properly. Deleting the converter will reduce the restriction in the exhaust, which may improve fuel mileage, or may not, but the warning with that is that the absence of the cat will make the exhaust more percussive for the mufflers downstream, which could cause them to wear out more quickly. Short answer is: check your local laws on exhaust modifications, and be ready for a slightly louder (slightly) when you remove it. if you replace it, there is no cheap way to do it, because there are moderately exotic metals inside the cat, making it more expensive to buy, although it's easy to replace.

How to clean stainless steele tip


You can usually restore some of the original shine with 000 steel wool and chrome cleaner, but the minute you run it again it will change back.
Some of the colouring is an actual chemical reaction in the metal itself and cannot be removed.
