in for pics.
Not sure the shope that I took it to to install it said the hangers wern't right and the mufflers hit the spare tire cover. biggest differance is the size of the pipping the stock is like 1.5 after the Y but this is 2" after the y and the mid pipe is 3" versus 2". If I have time tomarow I might take it down to the shope and remove the stock exhaust and try and line it up.hawker800mech said:How about just the mufflers bolted up to the factory Y-pipe? How do they fit? Are the hangars for the Legacy mufflers in the same location as the B9?
Well I tried to put the exhaust on again today figured out that I would need to remove the spare tire cover and it should fit after that. So I removed it and figured out that the Y pipe was all wrong and the hangers on the mufflers are all wrong. What I don't know is if the exhaust wasn't made right or if the legacy exhaust is just that differant. I have a case filed with paypal to get my money back for the exhaust so will probely just do a custom exhaust myself.hawker800mech said:How about just the mufflers bolted up to the factory Y-pipe?

I'm looking for both performance and sound. The mid pipe isn't the big bottel neck its the Y pipe thats the issue. After all exhaust is only as free flowing as its smallest point. Before I got the tribeca I was big into doing 4 cylinders and if you swaped from say a 2.25 to a 2.5 you would not lose anything you would gain asooming you did it right but if you went up to say a 3" it would loose power. What I don't understand is the pipping on the H-6 is the same size as the H-4. Logic would say that you should make it larger. My plan is to do a custom exhaust I might leave the mid pipe and just do the Y pipe and mufflers. if I did the whole system I would make it 2.5" then 2" after the Y. Having trouble finding some good 2" mufflers but might just have to settle for some 2.25 ones. I plan to later on make some headers that will lengthen the primaries, that will help with the low end power. Going to also play around with a steped design to try and help with the top too.hawker800mech said:Too bad it didn't work. It was worth a shot, though. Have you thought about going with a custom setup? What about removing the resonator in the center? Are you looking for more sound or performance? I would not see a need to to increase pipe diameter as it may move the torque curve back.
Might want to try an aftermarket Legacy spring with higher spring rates with very little drop. I'm thinking pinks or Prodrive (about .5" drop). Are the top and bottom of the Legacy springs the same as the B9? Good luck on the sway bar. It is very different than the rest of the fleet.SGT Goltz said:Also looking at the springs I have. What apears to be differant is the springs are a much lower spring rate. Phyisicaly they have the same amount of coils but the ones off the legacy are about 3/4 as thick. So logic would say that with the softer spring it would drop lower and cause there softer it would still ride good might even be softer then before. What concerns me is this might cause more body role. Going to look into a sway bar but the rear sway has a curve in it to clear the spare tire cover but I think I have a way around that.
