Burns Stainless Y-Merge Group Buy - Need 3

I'm keeping this short and sweet. You know if you want this or not. This isn't a thread for a lot of questions or complaining because it's expensive.

A few of us have been PMing about a Burns Stainless merge for a 3 inch exhaust build. I have sent a set of headers (Technik) to Burns to have them look at. They have suggested a merge for us. I'm guessing this merge would be the same that they would suggest for Ebay, Supersprint, etc...

It is designed for you to cut your exhaust as close to the flanges as possible, slip the Y over the remaining pip, and weld. It will end with 3 inch piping.

It will look like this (minus flanges).



The piece is $239. If I get 5 people we can do it for $199 plus shipping. I will have them all sent to me and then ship out. I had 5 people wrapped up. 1 got banned from the forum and I can't contact him, another is selling his car, and I haven't heard back from the other (ROB!!!!).

You will need to PM me when you put your name on the list. I will need Paypal of $220 to cover the part and shipping. Make sure I don't get hit with Paypal fees or I will immediately remove your name from the list and refund your money.

2. trippinbimmer

5.

Do your research on Burns if you're not familiar. If you think the price is high, that's fine. Don't post, don't ask questions. I just want this to finish quickly so I can get my merge.

Thanks for your cooperation.

It's too much . My only hang up about this is I don't want the pipes to hang down, especially when it passes under the rear axle...any pics of a 3" exhaust installed?

Mine's not to bad. I've scraped a couple times, but it's really only a hair lower than the factory brace.



* Oh, and the guy that is selling his car is also selling his Technik Gen 3s. PM me if you want his contact information.

That, too, but he'd need a different merge. They have one that exits in an oval.

So what's the power advantage with a 3" exhaust? I'd think about it if I can gain a little power and keep the volume at a reasonable level.

I made power and torque all the way from 3500 to redline. As much as 6whp, but at least 3.5. There's a dyno posted somewhere... This was also with the dyno cut short (6200). It was still climbing.

Fairly loud, but I can and will go with a larger muffler.

Can fix that. I will be going with 2 muffler total one straight through design and the rear will have a 3" inlet and Dual 2.5" outlet.

I might try this later on down the road. I can't take my car off the road right now since I'm signed up for a couple of HPDEs. Maybe over the summer but I need to do brake ducts and some other things first.

If these work with schmiedmann headers, I'm in. My headers have a much different flange than others. Will this have a flange, or will it just be the Y pipe. Edit: Whats the inlet diameter? I need 2" in 3" out.

Maybe it's time for me to take a couple pics of the exhaust on my DSP car. Supersprint headers to a big Borla straight-through muffler to a flowmaster in the stock location. It's not quiet, but my neighbors don't mind it. I could drive it every day and not set off car alarms or get pulled over.

No clearance problems either, and the car is very low.

No flanges, just Y pipe. 2 inch in, 3 inch out. It's made to go over the stubs of the stock exhaust. (Cut and reuse flanges).

Man, that isn't going to work. My exhaust is 2 inch from the headers back. I'd need a little more to slip it over the exhaust. I could just have it welded I suppose? Thoughts?

It'll work. It'd "bulged" to sip over 2 inch piping.
