Just for the record they are coming header first, then the exhaust about a month apart. Mid Dec for the header, and then mid Jan for the exhaust.

I doubt there's any yet, but any pictures?

Aaaaaand if you have a minute, you can PM me some pricing.

Lip

specific pricing is coming shortly(i've given people hints by looking at the tc header we have from strup with percentages taken off. Pictures i should have tonight or tomorrow at latest..but again...its not going to look a ton different then the tc header given its the same drivetrain.(and of course you know the tc header doesn't work on the new xB.)

xseveredveganx
12-20-2007, 01:21 AM
I meant the exhaust. Header would be nice because it cleans up the engine bay a TON.

Power gain would be nice, but not really neccessary for me. :)

I'll have exhausts in hand in 3weeks. pics shortly. pricing i'll do what i can helping scion-life members as always. I've always done a good job with scion-life members and making them as happy as i'm able. We also have a stellar reputation with service and products.

When you go to www.strup.us shortly...you can simply click on the link that says... "On-line Ordering Click here" and it will bring you directly to PartShippers.com. The alternative is to go directly to our home page... www.PartShippers.com click on "Exhaust" then "Headers" then "Scion" for ordering. Your introductory pricing will not be publicly advertised. Again...hold tight we are simply getting things together.

Lip
12-22-2007, 12:04 AM
they are ready to go..but its just a matter of having it on the site so you can order it. working on the site tonight.

also...it goes from the resonator back. not a cat back, not an axle back but nearly a cat back...lol. good to use a resonator

coryjames
12-22-2007, 12:06 AM
there is a cat in that resonator thats probably why they didnt do it from the spipe back so it will be up on the site tonight and do you have them instock so they would ship out asap?

Lip
12-22-2007, 03:35 AM

I really can't wait to see the exhaust installed.

I'm still thinking I want something dual out the right side where the stock exits. Just larger diamater, slash cut, and stick out a little bit. Put a little VIP on my car, but not too much. lol!

coryjames

lol yeah i have the trd rear section and i took off the resonator and mad it so you can hear it actually i like the way the strup rear section looks i like the exposed can section

redline8k
12-22-2007, 10:31 PM
any plans for a dual exhaust?
Is the the ceramic coated one heat coated? That would be a cool option- jet hot coating...
Does the header throw a code and if so what what can be done to fix it. Resistor?
How many cats are removed if both units are installed?
thanks
-nick

Lip
12-23-2007, 12:31 PM
Not sure at this time if there will be a dual exhaust. Strup does offer seperate canister mufflers for those that want to do their own custom stuff.

i'll check on the coating but ceramic coating IS a heat treating. The few that i know of on xB's are not throwing codes...i'll find out more. As stated a few posts before this...no cats removed, keeps stock resonators in place...its right after the resonator is when the strup exhaust starts.

well i just got off the phone with them, and i guess they dont even have it in stock. They wont get it in till next week sometime. Wish I would have know this the reason being the headers arent even done getting coated yet. This stinks get me all excited i feel like the old man just took my candy..........

how much stock do YOU actually have? Do you order/carry enough Strup products be on something higher then a AA pricing teir?


As i told Cory, we purchase in quantity...but the stainless are in stock...the ceramic coated are being done.

We'll take care of it...and any future order you have Cory...just ask and i'll help you out due to the short wait.

You asked me that on the phone cory. I said next week. Here...here is my email from Charlie at strup dated 12/26...word for word and i said to you they will be done early next week and shipped out to you in Colorado next week.

"Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.



Just a reminder of the new part number for the ceramic coated 08 Scion xB Header. TC11103. Al the ceramic part numbers will have a C after the first letter. The TC11103's will be available next week for shipment. The Stainless Headers you ordered are now in stock.

Lip
12-28-2007, 11:53 PM
i'm having progress work on the xB2's as well. waiting for development updates

the xB1 progress coilovers were my idea personally. I convinced them a couple years ago at a show then attended in Atlantic City NJ that if they produce them the way we discussed...they would sell. The got back to CA and worked on them. The very first set were tested on an xB that went to SEMA and the next set showed up in my hands.

Trying to get the xB2's developed

As a matter of fact I do get better then the AA pricing. Sorry to bust your bubble. Lets just say I have had my header for almost 3 months. I was the one that helped develop the one for the second gen..

On another note though. Glad to see you are getting taken care of Cory..

hey no limits how is the gain with the header?

NoLimitzBuilt
12-31-2007, 06:47 PM
It is hard to tell. Like I had mentioned before. I am still running stock from the header back. So the gain is most likely weak. I did notice some though for sure. I am waiting to get the rest of the exhaust and them maybe have the dyno done. So I have a idea where I stand with the mods that are done.

coryjames
12-31-2007, 07:33 PM
as soon as i get mine i will dyno it i have a full 2.5 header back with no res and a 3 inch cat with the trd intake and a nst pulley

NoLimitzBuilt
12-31-2007, 09:02 PM
I hope you like it loud. I had that exact set up on my tC and it was very loud. I ended up putting the stock mid pipe back in and then got the nice low, deep sound. I learned my lesson on that.

Yeah I am going to see what mine does. I have 2 different intakes to try, and then have the header, exhaust and NST pulley. I will see if I can get the 35 shot of NX going by then also.

coryjames
12-31-2007, 09:09 PM
well i have a 3 inch resonator to put in but waiting till the header gets hear and i i got some of my n2o stuff here already my window switch with the built in tps sensor going to run a 75 shot what kit you going to run and should do a write up on the activation switch install or are you doing a happy button

NoLimitzBuilt
12-31-2007, 09:20 PM
I already have it all. I just have not had the time to finish up the install. Ouch a 75 shot huh? Let me know how that works out for you. I am doing a TPS, and then doing the button on the wheel for purging.

Trust me, I drove my tC to NM and back and when I got back. I put my factory mid pipe back in, actually gained some HP also. I dont think the scions need a 2.5" unless you are boosted.

coryjames
12-31-2007, 09:23 PM
i just went with what the spipe was all the way to the trd axle back and tps good no window switch? when you figure out the wire that drops voltage at the tb let me know or if i do mine first i will let you know any idea on what wire sends the tach signal?

NoLimitzBuilt
12-31-2007, 09:45 PM
I will find out. I have the rest of this week to finish up some stuff that I have been putting off on the xB. I am going to mess with the NX kit. Finish making some motor panels. Change out the radiator fluid. So a busy week. LOL

are those headers street legal?

define street legal? In CA? they apparently have really crazy sniffer/visual tests. I'm not sure what other state that is like that...i haven't heard of any. Over the past few years...all the strup header and exhausts have past emissions testing to my knowledge in all other states. I haven't heard of one issue so far.

As soon as Cali wakes up...i'll have tracking info for paid customers.

most headers do throw them on and off cause your taking out a cat and the second o2 sensor senses that so just buy a 40 part from wr the cel eliminator and stop this from ever happening

Have you driving on the freeway yet? You will most likely get a CEL, I will put 20 bucks on it. Right now both sensors are seeing the same reading. After about 20 minutes on the freeway is when it will pop on.

whitebreadbox
01-06-2008, 02:07 AM
so you DO get a CEL? does this CEL cause a safety system to come on, like more fuel to keep the engine from overheating or something like that? and if you do use a CEL eliminator, does it just cut it out for that system or does it block a CEL for other problems? i really want to get this header. have heard nothing but great things about strup, and i've run out of engine performance things to buy :P , but i don't want to sacrifice reliability in the process.

get the weapon racing cel eliminator here is the link http://weapon-r.com/english/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=6219

Ok i usally know who things work.. But sorry if this sounds like a dumb question..

but from Looking at the pic of this product.. is that a universal product or made for each type of car?

Becuase this is what it reads in the site

http://weapon-r.com/english/images/963-111-101.jpg

of that Check Engine Light and your car going into Limp Mode? We have the solution. Our CEL Light Eliminator gets rid of that CEL light and doesn’t effect the performance of your vehicle. We carefully test and research the correct amount of O2 carbons which are needed for the vehicle to correctly operate, at the same time we are able to extract the maximum horsepower potential out of the vehicle. Power without sacrifice..


SO you have used this product and it turned the light off.. is that pic the exact pic of the product..

So what it does is you screw it in to where the O2 Sensor goes and you screw the o2 sender intot he other end of that product..

I sort of intersted in how this works...

Do yuhave anypics of this installed in your car??

whitebreadbox
01-06-2008, 01:41 PM
yeah, i second that question!!! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

in order for the a/f ratio to be monitored, it needs to see flow past the sensor. by looking at the above pic, all that will see is the first sign of exhaust when the engine starts and will cause a vacuum in the tube from the where the sensor is mounted (like blowing across a beer bottle top or an old school perfume bottle). i'm just asking questions by way of putting it out in the way i understand it. don't beat me up too bad. maybe it just works by PFM!!! :rofl:

Lip
01-06-2008, 02:08 PM
its basically a way to space out the O2 sensor so that it still reads SOME exhaust gasses but it removes the O2 sensor from the direct flow of the gasses as to make the ECU believe there is a restriction in the exhaust gasses such as by a Catalyst.

coryjames
01-06-2008, 03:38 PM
and to answer your q 808 you put it in line on your second 02 sensor its the emissions 02 sensor it just makes it thing the cat it taking things out so it sees less pollution and its universal it screws in and then you put in your 02 they work great i highly recommend it if your running a header

healthynine
01-06-2008, 03:57 PM
Yeah, that looks a lot like and expensive version of using anti-foulers to not trip the 02 sensor. IMO I think its better than an electrical O2 fix. I used anti-foulers(2) for a few bucks to basically just put space between the exhaust gas and the sensor with no cat on my evo, and never had a problem.

It'll cost you about $10 for two spark plug anti foulers, and you'll probably need to drill them out.

coryjames
01-06-2008, 04:01 PM
yeah i don't like the anti foulers got to drill them out and they take up a lot of room plus they are aluminum so they corrode like crazy and are a _____ to take off

NoLimitzBuilt
01-06-2008, 10:20 PM
I wont say I told you so.. But.. LOL..

I use the the weapon R one in mine. Have had 0 issues at all with it. The anti foulers dont work very well either. I tryed it in my tC and they kept giving me the CEL. I then went to the weapon R peice and had no issues at all after that.

thanks for posting the pics looks great, can you take some pics from the flange looking inside the runners? and maybe one looking into the collector. Are they smooth? It looks like a nice piece. Oh and the cel fix gets installed in the o2 bung on the header right there...? It might look abit weird. I wonder what the resistance value would be if I wanted to install a resistor fix...

It's resonator back, enjoy the pics and the video. The vid is a before and after so you can compare. Kinda crappy audio (unless you want the 290MB raw video) But both in cabin and out there is a much deeper tone that isn't annoying like the 'fart cans' (my son's term)

Glad to hear that, judging just by the video I was disappointed at first, but most exhausts sound different under normal driving conditions. Hopefully I will have mine sometime this week. I will also be getting that header sometime in the future.

i think it sounds really really good. Then again...i've grown out of the boy racer look at me and a tone that doesn't sound like an actual car sound. I'll stick with this then an exhaust that droans you out of the vehicle.

X2, I just wished it didn't have the huge cannon muffler on it & something like an Apexi WS muffler.

Anyone have dynos sheets with the header/exhaust combo over stock?

Well, just got my exhaust on a little while ago and I am satisfied with how it sounds for now. I can't really hear it over my intake, so it is hard to judge how loud it really is during normal driving. It will probably get slightly louder once it breaks in also. I will probably be leaving the stock resonator on until I get the header on later, then maybe I will swap out the midpipe/resonator.

If you can hear your intake over your exhaust than it must be really quiet.

Well, the fujita gets pretty loud at wot/higher rpms, and the intake is obviously a lot closer to the driver then the exhaust is. On my tc I could hear my injen intake about the same as I could hear the injen exhaust, and the exhaust didn't really get loud until I added a header. I can hear the strup at idle/low rpms, its a very mellow tone but noticable. I will likely have the resonator replaced but im going to wait a bit.

So, I was checking with a few shops today about getting the middle resonator/cat replaced with a smaller one, none of the shops were willing to do it and they all told me the same thing, "we are licensed and that would make the car emissions illegal, we will not touch it until an aftermarket company makes a high flow cat for your vehicle and it is actually listed in their application guide". This was not just calling either, I drove to two of the shops and they got it up on the lift then told me this. The third shop asked for vehicle info and then gave me the same answer.

bring it to cali i have already taken it out and replaced it with 2.5" piping fron the s-pipe to axle back and intalled 2 resonators to make it have a nice tone not ricey at all my brother in law works at a muffler place and did a bolt on for me so if i ever get in trouble for it i just bolt everything back together

nah, I would rather just keep it clean and legal, especially if the only gain is more sound. if magnaflow or someone comes out with a high flow cat I will switch to that, but I will leave it stock for now.

You can try Black Canyon Mufflers. When they got my XB up on the lift they were ready to replace everything from the header back with straight pipe and a magnaflow muffler. And there was no mention of any emision concerns.

Well, getting it done isn't an issue, I know plenty of shops that only care about making money and will happily do it. I don't want to do it though because all of the reputable shops I talked to said not to do it due to emissions/etc, and that the only gain is going to be a louder exhaust, so there isn't much point. It sounds very nice and clean right now, so I will wait until I get the header and then look at my options.
