Tomei Evo X Ti Exhaust System

Tomei Evo X Ti Exhaust System

The new Tomei Powered product concept is to “Achieve performance gains with a lasting impression”. The new developments have been involved with a new type of performance mufflers. In recent years more end users are enjoying their cars with clubman sports events and also for more serious competitors entering their cars in serious track events where various constraints have been with their mufflers being restrictive, so we have designed our mufflers for pure competition use for results when needed. We wanted to design an exhaust system for absolute total engine performance. The main priorities were for overall engine performance gains as opposed to just maximum peak power. The tubes size and length was carefully selected to suit each engine characteristics and to suit the cars chassis as well for maximum torque, response, and exhaust flow efficiency through the layout. It is difficult to increase the power on the EVO X with the muffler alone but this design has optimized in all areas. The use of Titanium material with the single piping layout also helped reduced the overall weight of 15.65kg! This amazing weight reduction helps with the cars performance and handling whilst maintaining strength that Titanium can deliver.

1. TAIL PIPE

φ115 t=1mm design with straight cut finish racing model for that Spartan look. The Titanium look with the laser marking and beautiful heat gradation gives the EXPREME Ti a good visual appeal.

2. Silencer Band

Made from stainless steel the band this band is designed as a support band instead of having is welded to the actual muffler. This keeps both separated and greatly reduces stress from vibration that would usually be present if the support was welded directly to the muffler. The band is also fitted with a special high heatproof spacer rubber for increased stress reduction from vibrations.

3. CLAMPS

Rather than the conventional T-type bolt the clamp band was chosen as it provides double the clamping force even under harsh conditions. This band is best suited for extreme conditions from high heat stress and vibrations this will firmly keep the pipes air tightly sealed together.

4. Silencer

Silencer Case

All of the Φ152 t = 1mm Titanium design achieves the optimum exhaust efficiency and straight design, finished off with a mirror finish plate with the embossed logo and heat gradation color for that lasting impression.

Punched Mesh

The all Titanium made inner mesh tube is t=1mm φ3 P=5mm with an open slot ratio of 32.6%. With maximum weight reduction and exhaust flow being the key points you can expect the best flow rate with an addictive racing sound from this exhaust without any compromise.

Glass Wool

Unlike the usual conventional short fiberglass threads, the use of the long fiberglass thread wool was chosen for its excellent sound absorbing and excellent durability to cope with high pressure and high temperatures

5. Precision Welding

Titanium is well known to be the most difficult to weld with for best results as the pre-preparation is required to remove dust and grease from the material. Once the optimum conditions are achieved then with the right strictly controlled welding methods with the heat rate and speed will then make it possible to achieve the high grade finish.

6. Joint Spring

The hook anchor points allows the springs to firmly hold the pipes together which is sufficient as it is alone but the use of the clamp bands adds that extra guarantee for a secure fitment for a reliable joint.

7. Main Pipe

The main purpose for this product is for pure competition performance exhaust efficiency so the racing layout design was made with bare minimum bends as possible over the entire Φ80mm t=1mm Titanium piping and the 3 piece for ease of installation and weight reduction.

7. Flange

The flange was made from a 6.0mm plate for strength design purposes to minimize distortions and cracks from aging to guarantee strength. This keeps the light weight design yet maintains strength equal to the factory stock design and guarantees the sealing characteristics that is required.

New Retail Store Hours are 9am-6pm, Monday-Friday

January 2, 2010 Leave a comment

Business Hour SignAs a company, we feel that family is very important.  The only problem is that we were not getting to spend any quality time with them.  So after several years we have made the decision to change our retail store hours back to the same closing time that we had in our Lexington store.  However, we did decide to open one hour earlier so that it would work much better for customers who are dropping vehicles off for work to be performed.  We felt it would be easier for someone to drop a vehicle off and be just a few minutes late to work rather than trying to leave work after only an hour of being there.  This takes effect immediately.  As always, if there is a need for scheduling drop-off or pickup of a vehicle outside of our normal business hours, please just contact us and we will consider these on a case by case basis.  Thanks for everyone’s understanding.

Hello world!

Welcome to the new Street Sports Blog.  For quite some time (years in fact), we have tried to determine how to get important information out to our customers.  Previously, it was through our website at http://www.streetsports.com.  Although there is STILL a lot of content there (over 10,000 files JUST on the information side alone), it is not organized in a way that repeat visitors can find the new content easily.  As such, many of you already know that after ten years of almost daily updating (1997-2007), we all but stopped updating it the past two years.  Part of the reason was a tremendous undertaking with our online store development.  Many of you know me and know that I want what I want, and I don’t want to settle for less than what I think is the best.  So for OVER the past two years the online store has been stuck in development.  Although things are looking really good for it to finally go live right after the beginning of the new year, a lot of time will be spent loading products into it’s database.  Second, it is MOST useful to those who don’t live close enough to come to our retail store.  So we had to find a better way.  We get information daily from our manufacturers such as new product releases, price changes, and factory authorized sales and specials.  We want you to receive this information as quickly as possible so that you may act upon it while it is relevant.  We will also post other valuable content for you such as maintenance information to help you keep your vehicle running better, changes to shop operations such as operating hours and amenities as well as new staff introductions and training certifications.  We have never liked the idea of sending a barrage of emails to everyone, everyday.  If you are like us, there are already way too many showing up as it is.  We needed a better way.  With the ability to stream an RSS feed to your favorite web browser, email client, or RSS reader, we decided that WordPress was the best way.  This will most likely end up being the best way to keep up with us, although we will continue to use our other social media platforms of FaceBook, MySpace, and Twitter to get the information out since different people have different needs and preferences.  For now, all we ask is that you give this new platform of ours a chance, and see how valuable it can become for you.  We really appreciate your business.
