Need an exhaust flange

So my exhaust after the cat rusted apart so ima eliminate the cat with a straight pipe. I just need to buy a flange that fits the down pipe. I'm looking at this from ebay, but is it the same?

welp, my terd gen exhaust is a 2.25 id and 2.5 od (Afta market pacesetter pipes) Dc sport heada not sure what the pipe size is but my main concern was the bolt pattern being the same. I might try a muffler shop first to see what they got.

Re: Need an exhaust flange

Re: Need an exhaust flange

Couldn't you cut the flanges off of your old CAT and just weld the new pipe onto them? Muffler shops can expand or shrink the tubing to fit.

Re: Need an exhaust flange

Are the CAT flanges rusted through as well, or just the pipes and/or the CAT itself. I believe that they are like 1/4" steel.

Re: Need an exhaust flange

the flanges itself on the cat are rusted but not through. I might try to cut off the cat tonight and clean up that flange, buy 2.25 tubing and a 23" resonator and chop the entire pipe and weld it all together

Re: Need an exhaust flange

I think that is what I would do for the time being, at least until I was able to replace the exhaust.

You could have just ordered a 92-96 Prelude catback system from ebay for roughly $120 shipped and cut to fit.

Its the closest setup to ours.

Nah, I wasn't alluding to you being broke, was more thinking along the lines of availability of parts, "engineering" a solution, or waiting on parts to arrive by mail...

Nice to know Sean! That's not too bad of a price! I'll keep that in mind... I'll need to replace my exhaust after I get my suspension installed.

Welp, finished, power difference? its hard to tell man. I haven't driven this car for 2 months, and prior to that i was on a motorcycle all summer so all car's are just slow as hell to me until i get used to driving again.

Sound, its louder unfortunately then running with the cat at 2-2.75k rpms and again at 4-4.5k rpms. Besides those two spots it sounds how it used too.

this is how she ended up looking after spray painting all the welds and pipes so it wont rust as quick as last time

Re: Need an exhaust flange

I imagine you might get a few horsepower, like 3 or 4 from removing the CAT but not much moe than that, and you really won't feel that without any form of "measurement".

Looks like a nice smooth weld! Nice job! Is that ARC or MIG? I'm still practicing my welding skills. I have a MIG / FLUX-Wire welder think I need to get the Argon bottle for my setup cause that "FLUX-Wire" welding isn't looking so good.

And yeah, looks like you aren't using any jack stands. Maybe they are under the body or something... So I won't say anything more... Except...

What the heck are you doing with a hand saw under the car?? I hope THAT was left over from another project! LOL!

So see, those old CAT flanges worked after all!

No dad your only looking at the mid section of the car hahaha, let me show you the first part of the contraption required to life this car



currently don't have a low pro jack and even then i have about 2 - 3inches of cleareance on the sides so i gotta drive it up on wood, to drive on my motorcycle ramps , to drive onto the car ramps hahaha



once she's up on the car ramps, i jack up the front end a tiny bit under the brace to get teh metal ramps outta the way and only leave the car ramps.

Then i go to the rear end jack that up and put rear stands back there. I just left the jack under the front because lazy

The hand saw was from me originally starting to cut the bolt off the old cat flange until i got so pissed i just bought an angle grinder and cut off wheel and chopped it off nice an easy.

Also it's mig welding

Re: Need an exhaust flange

Nice.

Safety first and all. I just say that other thing because the kids are watching.

Yeah we jack up my sons lowered 93 and slide the ramps under.
But I like the motorcycle ramp idea.

Dude! Harbor Freight has a low profile 3 ton floor jack on sale for $93 right now. I have one and use it all the time with no issues. Here's the link:

3 ton Low Profile Steel Heavy Duty Floor Jack with Rapid Pump®

WOW! Using a hand saw... I would have gotten pissed too! Most exhaust bolts are Grade 8 steel or 10.9 if they are metric... Aren't angle grinders just one of the most wonderful tools!? I have 2 of them, both are 4". One has a wire wheel on it and another with a cut-off wheel. It doesn't take too long to swap out the attachment, but when I am welding, I switch back and forth so much that the time to do so would "add up" and I have more than "paid for them" both with the time I have saved.

On the welding, you use a Argon, right?

I TOTALLY agree on the safety consciousness. I always use ramps and/or jack stands. My car is stock height but driving up the ramps are still a close call so I usually use my floor jack and set the car on my ramps. When I was swapping my head and doing the overhaul, I put some bricks on the ramps and set my car on them to give me another 5 or so inches of clearance. I kinda want to get another set of ramps to slide under the back.

Re: Need an exhaust flange

Sideswipe was talking about some weird platform thing that you can put under your wheels and raise the car up. Idk hopefully he chimes in.

Not 100% what he used gas wise welding, friend was just showing me how its done at his house because i still suck at it.

Ive cut so much stuff off using a hand saw when i first started. mom kept taking powertools away from me when i was a kid because she was afraid.

Maybe it was these:



They are usually used for moving cars around or into / out of tight spaces, but would lift a car high enough to get a jack under to lift the rest of the way.

Yeah, I am "OK" at welding, getting better... Thinking that I need to go ahead and get the "gas" hooked up and see if it improves. I've watched video, read books, and practiced what i've seen and I get more slag than I should and the bead isn't consistent. The ONLY thing I don't have is the gas bottle hooked up.

I can totally relate to this one...

Re: Need an exhaust flange

I bought this one:



170 Amp-DC, 240 Volt, MIG/Flux Cored Welder

It does the trick. I caught it on sale for $160 and I bought all the accessories with it. The Auto dimming mask (Black with blue flames) a welding apron, a 3 pack of leather gloves, some welding locking pliers, magnets and the welding cart they sell.



I got all those items on sale too! I just need the Argon bottle too hook into the back of it.

Re: Need an exhaust flange

ya we were using the gas mig welder. My buddy welded with just the electric no gas or anything but the weld only held up for maybe a day before it snapped. All he did was weld a seat on a moped

Re: Need an exhaust flange

Probably going to get the Argon bottle this weekend and some more wire. I have a few "Honey-Do" things my wife wants me to weld...

Plus I may take a look at my leaky exhaust to see if there is enough metal to patch the leak or if I am going to need to replace the exhaust from the CAT back.

What muffler do you have? I want one that sounds deep.
