Check this out. http://www.m109riders.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1240300#post1240300New member here. Installing an aftermarket exhaust this weekend. Can anyone provide the torque specs, either ft/lbs or N/m, on the exhaust flange bolts?
This forum rocks by the way. :bigthumbsup:
Cbird, so your next post isn't "I have a FI light on, what gives?" make sure you remove the SET valve actuator cam correctly. You MUST hold the cam with a wrench while removing or installing the allen bolt, or you WILL strip the plastic gears inside the actuator. Your only option then will be to tear it apart and try to fix it, or pull a wire off the ECU to disable the light.Thanks for the help, have already purchased new copper crush gaskets. Heard too many different stories of people having/not having gaskets present upon new exhaust installation. Didn't want to take a chance.
Dragsters going on this Sat! :hot: Time to be heard.
Did you install any type of fuel management system (like an FI2000 or a PCIII)? Freeing up the air intakes would help too.After hearing all the fuss about the SET (rightfully so I might add), I was extra careful when removing it. Everything went well, pipes are on now and sound awesome. Scary loud at times.
I did notice a decrease in HP/TQ around 3000 rpm and haven't heard of a good fix yet. Looking at either the Big City Thunder Baffles or just going to make my own version since they don't look that hard to make, and it's tough to justify spending $130 on a set of the BCT's.
