                80mm Full Exhaust RB duals

                Ok finally It took a total of about 2 hours to take off and put on the RB full exhaust 80mm downpipe to to RSR RB mufflers 3" tips.
                I still have yet to add a FCD (fuel cut defender) to stop the stock computer from cutting off fuel to the motor over 10psi..This would be Bad since it would lean fuel to the rotors causing high tempatures that can blow your seals..I will be taking off My ABS to make more room for work on the turbo..Soon I will be porting the wastegate and adding either a homemade FCD or a aftermarket one.RB says this exhaust adds over 32% - 57 HP on a S4 so I wonder how much on a S5..Mabey up to 65-70 hp more!! is a little bit from the Racing Beat site about this exhaust..

                The Turbo II High Performance Exhaust system incorporates a 3.15-inch (80mm) down pipe from the turbo outlet that mates to a presilencer section. From the head of the Y-pipe two 2.375-inch (60mm) pipes extend to the ceramic wool-packed 409-stainless steel rear main mufflers. The bolt-on exhaust system increases horsepower approximately 32% - a 59 HP increase on a 1987 Turbo II RX-7!

                The Turbo II High Performance Exhaust system reduces exhaust gas back pressure significantly, thereby allowing the un-assisted turbo boost pressure to increase to 10-11 psi. Our Fuel Cut Controller (part No. 11570 or 11571) is required to prevent fuel cutoff to the rear rotor above the factory pre-set limit

                  Thermostat Mod and Replacement

                  Take a look at what I did to my thermostat..It helps Cool the engine slightly better.Do no Gut out the Thermostat too much or your cooling system will not operate at it's peak cooling temperature..Letting the coolant pass through the radiator too fast won't allow the liquid to cool enough..Also it wont spend enough time in the engine to absorb heat and will cause hot spots on the motor..This is what I did but It just helps slightly..Drilled 2 holes in sides to let a little more flow..
