Didnt even think about the tc3 for some reason, but that definitely looks more like the tc3 over the LD3, Good callThe arrangement of what can be made out looks like an associated tc3, but with an aftermarket chassis and the way wrong header/pipe.
I'm guessing both were intended to be used with a side exhaust engine, which would fit better with the arrangement. Which is odd as rear exhaust engines tend to be higher performance/rpm, which is what you'd want for onroad.
I remembered something like that ,with that pipe ,but wasn't sure!CVEC pipes actually use a moveable exhaust cone. You can lock the cone in different positions and tune for where in the RPM range you want to engine to come on the pipe. I ran one on my RS4 touring car. It worked great as you could tune for any size track easily. Or alternatively, for really tight stuff, you could soften the hit and make it easier to put the power to the ground. Very interesting concept at the time, not sure if they're still around.
I wasn't saying it as a disparaging remark towards you, just letting you know as it could add to the problems of getting it working properly down the line. The CVEC pipes were good pipes for those that spent the money on them, but they aren't allowed for racing as they have moving parts inside. Again, fine for a basher, but it clearly wasn't made for that chassis layout. Kind of looks like it was a revo pipe just by how it's made to go out the back of a chassis vs the side.So my header is wrong I'm dry but brand new to all this
Well thats interesting cause this thing is seriously fast and I got three of the exact same chassis I actually bought a bunch of stuff a few years back I have brand new engines and all kinds of other stuff I don't need it all so if anyone's interested let me know and I can show or explain to you what I gotThese cars are already fast with out high performance upgrades ,the person who had that ,an built it like
with that pipe set up was odviously looking for more speed an was experimenting!
With that being said ,the pipe on Olds car is the type that should be on it ,an is the original style
My custom NTc3
An my Ofna in which has the same design!
That's one long manifold!
LOL....you know whats funny ,I just noticed when I posted it here ,I don't remember where it came from or howThat's one long manifold!
