Race-Proven 602 Crate Engines and Accessories!
This tailpipe kit can come as just the tailpipes or as a welded kit with mufflers. Includes the clamp and adapters for the rear of the tailpipe.
DIRTcar rules for 2019 require 3” tailpipes. KillerCrate Carries the Beyea Upswept Header/Mufflers/3” Tailpipe kits.
If you NEED MUFFLERS, Please make sure that you check the muffler box on the options.
Here's a quick Video of the Welded and painted kit:
Sportsman engines actually like 3” tailpipes. We make the length at the end of the tail - a little shorter, ending in front of the shocks and place the Muffler 4” off the header collector. Most standard configurations are 3-3.5". In our testing with Beyea, this configuration made 5 to 8lbs more torque at 2500-4200. Some of the guys who tried the new Beyea setup, reported that they were much better on restarts and hit the chip sooner.
SECRET: Fresh Exhaust makes as much as 2-4hp more. Of course this depends on how crusty the insides of your existing headers are. RUST is your biggest enemy with headers. Even year old-headers/tailpipes degrade performance
SECRET: Plug your tailpipes to keep the air, humidity and water out – especially when washing the car. Little rubber/foam footballs that seem to work well. This prevents rust.
SECRET: In the off-season – be sure to spray penetrating oil all inside the headers and exhaust, and stuff some newspaper or rags in each opening to keep air and moisture out. Believe it or not – Most header rust occurs when they are NOT on the car.
