Pipe upgrade

In a few weeks I will have the new upgraded pipe. It will be made out of one piece of stainless steel tubing (I was told, but I have not seen the first one yet). The new model will still include the EGR plate kit. With this upgrade, the cost will be upgraded as well. It will cost $180 for the pipe and EGR kit + $20 for S/H/I. As soon as I get the first pipe, I will post a photo or two......Rich

Performance gain question for those that have purchased one of these kits.

Can anyone give a testimony about the performance gains (if any) after the pipe installation? I do know the benefit of the potential saving the turbo is real, but is there any noticeable performance gain?

Bypass pipe performance gains

After I installed the pipe I noticed quicker throttle response. When my car is traveling uphill on my typical commute, I rarely downshift anymore unlike the old trap oxidizer exhaust system. My car does accelerate quicker, but I could not accurately quantitate an increase in hp or tq.

The bypass pipe is a must have upgrade.

hey I have a 84 300CD. I am pretty sure it is a Cali version. I have that extra part in front of the turbo tho. I think it is a KKK turbo also, since this was missing in my old 83 300CD which I believe has the Garret turbo. Do you guys think I have the trap oxidizer and if yes I would like to order this bypass kit!

P.S. I know the trap oxidizer versions have a smaller air filter assembly in a different spot towards the front of the engine. I have the normal set up where the air filter assembly is bigger and on top of turbo.

^ If you have a trap oxidizer you'll know by the giant can under the turbo instead of simple exhaust pipe going under the car. It's really hard to miss. They had a different air filter because the turbo had to be moved up in order to make room for it. You'd never fit a normal air filter on top of there.

The extra bit on the front of the turbo is the ARV, which even non-California cars had around 84-85 for the 123.

Bolkata, would not have the "trap oxidizer", based on your description. It was only on 1985 CA engines, and yours is 1984. One couldn't even fit a 1984- air cleaner to a 1985 engine because the turbo on the 85 sits higher up. Indeed, that is why they changed to the frame-mounted air cleaner.
