Performance of twin 2.5” system vs single 4”?

Recommended Posts

Hi, have G6ET with 355rwkw, currently have a full xforce system with the twin 2.5” pipes.  Other mods include a Walbro 400, PW stage 1 intercooler, 1000cc injectors,  GTX3582 gen 2 with flapper mod and porting etc.  Had hoped for more kw from the recent tune, a couple people have suggested that single exhaust 4” system would help, thoughts?  Reluctant to change the exhaust unless it’ll make a difference, wasn’t cheap to buy being a full stainless one.  Thanks

instead of me writing a big spill, click here instead. There is some good information and will get you in the right direction. You also have to take other things into account, that affect power, like temps on the day, dyno etc.

 

There are gains to be had by going to a 4" of course and many equations to play with to calculate, as well as pros/cons of going bigger like, it will be louder, likely hang lower etc etc

That link reckons a twin 2.5 system only supports 463hp at the crank. On this forum we've seen a twin 2.5 system support more than 670hp at the wheels.

 

Op, post your dyno sheet so we've got more of an idea what's going on.

yeah that's not taking into account variables or forced induction. VE on a 2.5" twin setup has flow similar to a single 3.5" (again depending on the setup in question) for all we know currently this could be a sub frame back 2.5" and not full system, plenty of variables here

403rwkw 98 / 438rwkw e85 with twin 2.5" xforce here, same injectors, pump and intercooler. 

Fuel setup (no surge) and gt3540 were the next limitation not exhaust

Unless a sedan version doesn't flow as well as a ute but doubt it

@karlp2 was there some query about your tuner....jet had a few comments iirc lol

4" dump and cat to clarify

but "full" doesn't necessarily mean full

By full exhaust I’m talking about from, and including the dump pipe back

the quality of ford tuners in NZ and Australia would make me keep my car stock or learn to tune myself.

 

There we go, fixed. Haha lucky we have a handful of good ones over here though.
