Need help with a mid pipe!

I have a 2009 R6 that I'm looking to put a mid pipe on but don't know where to start. What all do I need to install on it besides the mid pipe? I have a yoshi slip on n PCV installed already

Re: Need help with a mid pipe!

M4 and MJS both sell y pipes and since you have a PCV you won't "need" anything else.

Re: Need help with a mid pipe!

If you have a PC AutoTune be prepared to weld your mid pipe on. The O2 sensor will hit your frame not allowing you to push the mid pipe towards the header enough. I just found this out today installing my M4 y-pipe. O..It is also ridiculously(Left cats in header) LOUD

Smog block off plates help reduce popping, and are needed to get an accurate tune if you are dyno tuning, or using an AutoTune.

I would suggest you get the MJS or M4 pipe, both make clamp on solutions. T-Tuner is the only one I would suggest avoiding.

Re: Need help with a mid pipe!

Why would you avoid the t-tuner?

Re: Need help with a mid pipe!

The design, having your exhaust gas dump into a big open chamber is not a good idea. MJS, M4, Olson, etc, are all good options.

Re: Need help with a mid pipe!

Are they all about the same price?

Re: Need help with a mid pipe!

Last time I checked pretty much all the mid pipes were very close in price. I believe the M4 is stainless, the rest being standard steel.

I still prefer the MJS header route, you end up with a header you can just bolt on that is ceramic coated (the coating is very nice, much nicer than spray painting your header), and it removes the cats in the header tubes. It's something like $70-80 difference if you return your factory header to MJS compared to the mid-pipe. It definitely simplifies the install, no worries about cutting thing's wrong, or exhaust leaks, fitment issues, etc.
