    Reason Exhaust Tips Don't Extend Further

    To install the tips on a Sport the chrome bezels have to be removed. Not sure on the ST if removal of the bezels will help or not

    Reason Exhaust Tips Don't Extend Further

    Some of us have added quad tips to extend the exhaust pipes. The tips can be installed on stock or aftermarket exhaust systems. As far as I know no one has done this to an ST yet. These are 3inch tips in the photo. I swapped them out for 3 1/2 inch tips and they look much better. 3 1/2 inch quad tips are what I recommend if you decide to do this. There is a thread on this subject here someplace for more info

    It is normal on DI engines like the EB for a dry black soot to collect on the exhaust tip.

    Do You Like Your Edge?

    The I Lve my 2016 Edge Sport . It is faster and handles way better than my 6.6L Trans Am ever did. It is quicker than my 1965 C10 with a custom built big cam high performance 350, rock crusher trans and huge Mickey Thomson’s . It has more luxuries than any car I have ever owned and it runs like a fine Swiss watch. What is not to like ?

    Fresh Air Intake Mod

    Trimmed to shape and covered with bondo it is ready to sand, paint and install. Although the finish is not perfect it fits well and works with the grill mods I already have. Been using it for a couple months now and it is better than stock according to my butt Dyno .. LOL , and will continue to use it . Now all I need is a " SS intake " Thats the snmjim & Special_K intake recently developed and I will have a complete system.

    Fresh Air Intake Mod

    The idea of this is to allow more volume under the sight shield for better air flow. After I covered the clay with aluminum foil and extended the edges with foam core, clear packing tape covered the entire thing as the release agent. Several layers of fiberglass cloth and mat were then applied.

    Fresh Air Intake Mod

    Although I posted the finished project in another thread I thought I would follow up with what I started here . This is the clay after shaping. I made sure the hood would close and used small worms of clay to check hood clearance. You can see where the closed hood smashed the worms and how much space I have left. I did this every inch across the entire form.
  11. Hello Bob C I was wondering what year, engine and model Edge you have? This info will help others that are interested in this TB mod.

    Looking good I like that you insulated the air box and added the flex hose, nice touch. Now as you said "off to the patent office " .

    Earthquake

    Just had a 7.1 earthquake here in the Los Angeles area. It lasted a good 40 seconds or so. Rolling for a long time. It was larger than yesterday’s quake. As far as I know there was no damage to.my house. I was not home when it happened . Welcome to California 😱
  16. Congrats awesome car!!
  17. Wondering if 21 x 10 wheels with 295 x 35 tires will fit on a G2 Edge Sport ? Stock wheels are 21 x 9. A 295 x 35 x 21 tire will be aprox 6/10 inch on each side wider than the stock 265 x 21 x 40 tires. That is using the same offset as the stock wheels. The 295 x 35 tire has a 4.1 inch side wall. The Stock 265 x 40 tire has a 4.2 inch side wall . Only 1/10 inch diff. Overall a 295 x 35 is 29.1 inch tall and the stock 265 x 21 are 29.3 tall. Only 2/10 diff. The 295 is 1.2 inch wider than stock. There are lots of manufactures making this size tire so there a a great selection to chose from. The strut shown in the diagram is for show only. Don't worry if the wheel looks like it fouls! Has anyone put oversize tires on a G2 Sport yet? If so what combo did they / you use ? 7mm more than before.

    Thanks for the photo. It looks like it could possibly help cool the brakes some as well.
  19. Ouch That sucks. I hope no one was injured and the damage is minimal and just cosmetic.

    Looking good. Without a doubt this is an improvement over stock. How about a photo of the fog punch out . Can you see it from the front of the car?

    Snmjim and Special_K with all the companies and engineers out there one would think that they would of figured out a good High Performance intake for the G2 Edge Sport by now.... But Nooo. It took you and your son to come up with the answer . I am so impressed with your design, build and skill set. So impessed that I decided to let the cat out of the bag and show what I built and have been running for the past few months. In mho it would complement what you have accomplished and help create an entire system.

    Even better yet having two sources to feed the beast. It should work better than stock even if only a small amount of air comes in from the fog punch out. You have eliminated the snorkel and that alone should be of value.

    MACT oil sample testing series

    Interesting series, I encourage you to continue testing other oil additives as there are so many to choose from.

    Yet Another Intake Thread

    Interesting I like it. Are you going to remove a light in front or cut a hole to access outside air? Or is that the intake just as it is? It is a very direct route how you have it and that's good.
