Thumbs up GrimmSpeed Up Pipe and Crosspipe Revisions



Today marks the ending of a very long project for us here at GrimmSpeed. Over the last year we have been working on a large project to completely revamp and upgrade our existing Subaru exhaust pipe lineup. Our promise to you has been to continuously improve and over the last 4 years we have upgraded our exhaust pipe lineup multiple times to show you our commitment to that promise. This upgrade however is the biggest of all, a complete upgrade/redesign to the entire product...flanges, flex, tubing. We are very excited to bring our already top-of-the-line product even higher up the quality chain.




Design
We designed this Up Pipe using our in-house FARO Arm along with the latest and greatest Solidworks CAD software. This assures that we can offer you the most precise and best fitting Up Pipe on the market. In short, OEM exhaust manifold pieces are inconsistent so we used our reverse engineering hardware/software to scan countless OEM pieces to determine the range of best fitments for our aftermarket pipe. This allows us to be very confident that your flanges will be leak free and the Up Pipe will fit nicely.



Materials
Our Up Pipe has been made with beefy local raw materials. The flex joint is 321 Stainless Steel w/ an Interlocking Liner and tubing is a heavy duty 14 Gauge 304 Stainless Steel(competitors use thinner 16 GA) that has been CNC Mandrel Bent and finished up with a nice brushed finish. Our flanges are made out of 1/2" 304 Stainless Steel and are fully machined on all sides(competitors typically just laser cut flanges for cost reductions). We also put a nice bevel on the edge of the flange so you don't cut yourself. You're welcome. The insides of our flanges are "cut-back" to allow the pipe to rest inside the flange which gives you a nice flush mating surface thus allowing optimal flow through the pipe. Heck, we started as a Porting company after all....we take pride in exhaust flow quality through our pipes. All fabrication is completed by our Welder/Fabricator who is certified in Aerospace Welding...yeah, he knows his stuff. A bit of overkill using an Aerospace Welder you say? Well the Up Pipe is put through some very harsh environments so we wanted the best for the job.



Continually re-inventing heavy duty, it's what you can expect from GrimmSpeed™








I'm very excited to see you guys ripping around with these beasts on your cars!

You can find the pipes on our website: http://www.grimmspeed.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=22

I love my grimmspeed uppipe.
However ive been thinking of an ewg setup.
Would it be beneficial on my 2.0 wrx?
I have a blouch. Td05 16gxt, FIC 1100s, 3" cobb turbo back,
Sti fmic, walbro 255pump. A couple tunes.

I woukd like earlier spool and more power all around if possible.

Hey,

Absolutely! You can think of an ewg kit as making your car boost as efficiently as possible. I would expect quicker and more snappy spool up, a more solid boost line, and the ability to safely run more boost up top.

It sounds like you have some great supporting mods already. One thing i would recommend is a boost controller if you don't already have one. The factory solenoid can limit your cars potential.

Please let us know if we can help with anything else.

Mike

@ Grimmspeed:
Do the revisions to the crosspipe eliminate the "ticking" noise that I experience with my approximately two year old Grimmspeed crosspipe? I paid to have my pipe (& ported manifolds) coated to avoid the need to heat wrap it, since I've heard the horror stories about flammable liquids dripping on heatwrap ending in car fires. I therefore don't wish to wrap over your coating just to see if it will mask the noise. I've been about ready to swap the crosspipe out because the ticking (which I never heard with the stock mani and crosspipe) really bothers me sometimes.
