I am considering buying an off road x-pipe for my z-monster but am wondering a few things. Will it void my warranty, how much power will I get, and will the car run without problems if it is installed. Any input would help.
It will void your warranty, but check with your sales manager, he might let it slide /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif.
I've heard of about 20 - 30 HP increases
with the off-road X-pipe.
Install a set of oxygen senor simulators in order to keep the computer fooled, this will also take care of any problems you might experience. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
I'll let you know. I have a Bassani "off road" pipe on the way. I got my 02 sims from West Coast Corvette on Fri. and Bassani tells me my pipe should show up on Mon. or Tues./phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif I put a set of B&B shortie headers and a PRT cat back system on the Z last week and it sounds GREAT./phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif The elimination of my cats should make it sound that much better and run much stronger.
Good luck with your decision.
I got my X-pipe put on the end of last week. That completes my system from the engine back. The pipe did away with most of the popping and cracking I was getting with just the headers and cat-back in place. So far, the car runs great and with the 02 sims I haven't had any computer code problems. The car has a rock solid idle @800RPM. I have a dyno appointment set up for next Fri. 8/3 so we'll see how much more HP I'm making. From the seat of the pants feel I would say it's a nice gain but who knows. One thing is for sure, the car sounds BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gifTake Care,
