TQS Exhaust DIY

Hi everyone, even tho I'd be surprised to get any input here as lately it's been extremely quiet, I'll give it a shot.

I've got a 2.5inch downpipe and a back box ready to fit to my TQS but I wanted to fit a 2.5inch pipe that will run from the downpipe to the back box so in essence I'll have a brand new stainless steel 2.5inch turbo back decat exhaust system. The problem is tho, I don't know what pipes to buy, sure around 2meters of straight pipe but how about the bends what degree do I need? Any help would be appreciated. I tried getting a shop to do it but it's impossible to get someone competent where I live. Cheers

Hi,
i`m not an expert but as far I know best is 314 ss grade, the wall should be around 1.5mm.
I`ll be picking up my car from exhaust fabrication bloke, if you dont mind waiting till weekend I`ll send you a pictures of mine one when is done

Wow, that looks really good, the welds look top quality.. Would it be at all possible, to get the company that's doing it for u to writte down the bends, the length needed etc? You know what I mean, like 45cm straight, 45 degree bend to the left 45 degree bend to the right 80cm straight... So on.. So I can just get the correct parts cause th3 exhaust company here is useless. Cheers

Hi. Im afraid that this is a custom made so the guy making it won't be able to say exactly what bends he did make.
I should be picking te car up today so I can run the lengths with tape measure but measuring the bends is always tricky.
There is couple of things I'm not 100% happy with regarding the exhaust so also rather wait until is done before advertise in any way. Hope thats OK

I understand, let me know once you've got the car back and maybe even link a video clip, would love to hear the sound of it. Thanks
