Continuing on with our full 3" exhaust system for the 2017+ BRZ / 86 / GT-86, we have our mandrel bent, TIG welded, T304 Stainless midpipe. Similar in design to our '08+ STi midpipe with some changes in geometry, this design is well proven and a great way to get the extra horsepower out of your big N/A build or your Forced Induction 86.
Also similar to our STi midpipe designs, the BRZ 3" midpipe features an aft-located 3" inner wound, outer braided, flexible coupler to ensure proper flange angle to allow the axleback portion of the exhaust hang appropriately and allow proper adjustment of the tip position. The midpipe also features a 4" diameter straight through resonator with 3" perforated core to smooth out the exhaust rasp. Replacing the factory single piece midpipe with this two section 3" midpipe also requires an additional flange in the middle of the midpipe - we use our proprietary latch-over v-band clamp and flange design for ease of installation, which also gives you the ability to clock the forward section of the exhaust for optimal clearance.
In turbocharged configurations, this part should bump torque up by roughly 20ft lb depending on turbocharger, and we routinely see increases in the 12whp range over a stock midpipe. The midpipe is equipped with a 3" donut gasket and flared front flange to allow the system to bold up easily to either a factory downpipe/front pipe or to an upgraded 3" overpipe/downpipe combination.
Fully compatible with factory driveshaft as well as one piece carbon fiber driveshafts. Available with or without a urethane exhaust hanger bushing for the single hanger near the differential.
