Background..... NONE :)

Header bolts up to engine.... CHECK!

My question is, do I really just slide the 2 pipes together? Shouldn't I clamp them together or something? Just seems like it would leak where they connect?

Sorry for the n00b question.

Yup just seen the spot for the spring.

Just seems weird like I should have something else to seal it.

The Barkers uses a exhaust header gasket, unlike the Sparks. The flange is half as thick Sparks, that uses the longer 450r exhaust bolts. I like both exhaust, but the Sparks is built alot stronger/ better:tup:
I won't even get into the repacking of the Barkers muffler lol.

Got the big 3 + uni in finally. It was storming so I just fired it up and reved it 3 or 4 short times.


I was in a closed garage..... I could see smoke coming from it which I didn't notice before and even when I shut her off it billowed out slowly for a few seconds. Also it was scalding to touch near the header just after about 15 seconds....

Normal?

What problems did you run into with the Barkers boost? I have the Barkers on my sled and XX. I give that exhaust an absolute beating and I haven't had a single problem. I think its a great exhaust and puts down some awesome power!

I think he was talking about the thickness of the header flange. The sparks is thicker. Also he mentioned the Barker's being a pain in the arse to repack the muffler.

I have the Barker pipe and i absolutely love it! Sounds unbelievable!

White Smoke - YES
To Much Oil - It's Possible....

Should I removed the Filter and try to dry it out some? And Think I did any damage in the 15-20 seconds it was running.

new pipes smoke for a little bit the have oils on them that need to burn off they are supposed to be hot also :), you could of over oiled filter as well

why is a thicker header flange a good thing it only needs to be strong enough to hold the pipe on

Also,

Right behind where the pipes come together with the spring. It seems to be touching or VERY near a bolt coming out of the engine.

Tried to adjust it some but it pretty much has no wiggle room.

Sorry with all the questions/concerns......

10th time buying first time modding myself :-D
