Default Trinity ExTech Big Boy Pipe ??

Does this pipe have a moveable cone inside of it? I put one on my 8T and after a little wreck it rattles now and you can see it move around thru the stinger.

Broke what, the cone inside? From a hit on to a car tire at about 4mph while I was breaking the engine in? If so the pipe is a big POS

Not the first time I heard of this. Give Trinity a call, I think they were replacing them for a little while.

This is funny.

I have 2 of these pipes and I like them alot. I had one on my Grp non tuned and it was nice. Somebody T-boned me and bent it. I just brought a new one. The other one I have is on my modded extech .21 thats in my truggy and that thing rips a$$ and I get good fuel mileage.

Yeah I actually run this pipe on my B5 and love it, there is talk about it in the Werks B5 thread and I think people just might need the sirio version made in italy not the trinity version made in china.

If I had got t-boned I could see it maybe breaking, but not from a little bump on a car tire. I will have a new one for sale then real soon!

Expect a smoother powerband with greatly increased mileage. I hated it at first on my Trinity's and took em off. Then I went back to them and realized my tune for them was off. Now thats all I run on my .24 FM. They did have bad batch of baffles breaking off. Call Chad at Trinity and he wil replace it for you.

I think I may buy one of these. They look like a seal club, but they get ridiculous mileage.
