200 tdi conversion downpipe

Recommended Posts

Hi I wonder if any of yous guy would have a picture of where the for example steve parker down pipe mates with the rest of the exhaust. I am in the process of a full rebuild and engine swap at the same time . I am not paying £144 for a downpipe I can make one easily but I dont know where I want it to exit. I have built everthing else I have search everywhere for a pic  would someone be nice enough to take a pic of theirs .

 

Thanks andy

So let me get this right, you don't want to pay for a downpipe that will do the job, but expect someone who has, to then provide you with all info to build one. How about I send some photos for £130, a bargain surely... 🙄

IMO, I’ve got the fab skills to make one but it’s not worth it, the Disco 200 downpipe kit from Steve Parker just fits. It’s a horrible shape thanks to where it’s got to fit. I’m all up for making custom stuff, but sometimes it’s just not worth the time.

Fit the rest of the exhaust, make the downpipe to fit between it and the turbo.

Easy to do, no pictures needed.

Yup there is no authority to register,  why would there be.

I've just done this, this week.

I got the downpipe from a guy who makes them and sells on ebay:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/defender-90-110-exhaust-conversion-for-discovery-200tdi/324037686441?hash=item4b7226b4a9:g:BysAAOSwH3hZ77gw

So far so good, It fitted very well and cured my rumbly noise (old down pipe touching footwell when engine under load).

^^ I've bought from the guy who sells on ebay too, runs a metal fabs business - nicely made kits.

I must say that ebay link above looks awful in comparison to the Steve Parker one.

In the case of the Disco 200 downpipe, its got to be that shape to clear everything. The Steve parker one is at least flowing bends. The one in the link is the laziest pie-cut exhaust I'v ever seen.

Compare and contrast:

A whole £2 cheaper for the Tandy one ;)

My recollection of the early steve parker ones were that they were a similar construction to that tandy one. The curved version is certainly improved though!

Nuts, mucked the price comparison up, the Tandy one I checked came with silicon joiners etc for the intercooler as well. 

A slow revving diesel it may be, but it is turbocharged, so say at 14psi it is shoving the same amount of air for a given rpm as a 5.0l petrol. 

Granted it doesn't rev as high(4400?) but then the rover V8 is only 5k redline... 

Can imagine all sorts of flow issues with the Tandy one, and given a turbo engine needs as free a flowing exhaust as possible, it is sure to hurt power/efficiency.
