    Mga guru,

    Ano po ba ang mga consequences (like malakas sa diesel or kumakain ng oil ba or mahina ang hatak or) pag yung stock exhaust system ng L300 van po eh pinalitan ng exhaust system ng Ford Exped.

    From muffler to header, complete palit...

    Salamat po

    First off, hindi kakasya ang headers ng Expedition. V8 yun, whereas yung L300, I4 diesel. And even if one of the exhaust manifolds actually fits, hindi naman matched ang flow properties niya sa makina, so baka mawalan ka ng low end pull.

    And yung tubo sa ilalim, iba yung daan, so hindi rin kakasya ang midpipe.

    Ang puwede mong gamitin ay yung muffler, siguro, kung kakasya sa likod ng L300 (pero sa kitid, baka di rin puwede)... it might give you a deeper, more resonant sound, but nothing else.

    Best bet sa L300, lagyan ng extra long resonator sa gitna, tapos siguro muffler ng isang 2 hanggang 3 liter na gas engine, para gumanda ng kaunti yung sound. Sa performance, mahirap, dahil pag nag-increase ka ng pipe size, hihina ang hatak... unless salihan mo ng turbo...

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    I'm trying to acquire this L300 na iba yung exhaust system (actually I'm not really sure where its from but it sure is shiny from head to foot hehehe).

    Well, that said, most stock exhaust systems are crap, and will rust out in just a few years (heck, many are locally fabricated anyway).

    I suggest you road test it... if you're familiar with L300s, you'll be able to tell if it runs better or not. If not, well, an L300 is slow, but if the new system is giving the car bad torque, it'll be hard to pull away from a stop in second gear (old L300s can do this easily, since first gear is very VERY low).

    One plus of a modified system made from stainless steel is that it won't leak and pour noxious gases into the cabin and kill you while you drive (common problem on rusting old L300s).

    Okay. As long as it doesn't go pugak-pugak-pugak, and you don't feel too much heat from the seat (although, "hot seats" are normal for L300s), it's no biggie. Good luck!
