FS: Rebuilt crossover (x-over) pipes: $300 with core return
« on: November 03, 2009, 08:38:06 PM »

Hi everyone. I have a fixture for rebuilding the 1989/1990 Turbo Grand Prix, TSTE exhaust crossover (x-over) pipes.

The original crossovers have bellow style flex joints that cracks and leaks, causing a rich running condition. All rebuilt ones come with a woven style flex joint that is the industry standard nowadays.

Also, the original is encased with a molded steel heatshield that trapped moisture against the crossover, accelerating corrosion.

Once rebuilt, the heat shield is no longer utilized, with no ill effects.

$375 USD shipped anywhere in North America without core return.

$300 USD shipped anywhere in North America with core return. (Effectively a $75 core charge - I'd prefer to receive your rebuildable core rather than charge the $75)

I have had lots of seamless transactions with members on this board and w-body.com, so have no worries. All shipments will include a tracking number.

PayPal and money orders are my preferred methods of payment.

Any questions, concerns or comments please feel free to PM me or email me at mshantz83@hotmail.com

Matt

I am looking to have mine repaired locally. I was told by the guy that i need to get 1 3/4 flex section that is no longer than 3 inches. the shortest i can find is 4 inches long on ebabsys. Are you willing to just sell me the flex section or at least tell me where to buy it??

Just an update, I'm all set up to rebuild these crossover pipes, feel free to get in touch with me regarding having one fixed.

The picture is of a crossover I rebuilt this week.

Thanks.

The question is can you make larger crossovers? 2.5 inch diameter instead of 2 in diameter?  ( or whatever size they are)

I actually have a question: Recently I've had this exhaust smell come into the cabin after I stop after driving, stay at an intersection. I've taken it to a shop explaining that I think there may be a leak, explaining the crossover explicitly could be the problem, but they couldn't hear a leak, so they concluded there wasn't one. What should I look at to figure out if my Xover really is leaking?

If it still has the cover on it take it off and look at it.  Or on a cold start up feel for a leak.

The bellows on the stock crossovers look like an accordion. Over time the accordion bellows rip from the flexing and heat cycles.

Chances are, if your crossover is the stock unit with the metal heat shield covering it, your flex bellows are leaking.

Unfortunately, I don't have the equipment to custom bend piping to make a larger diameter crossover

I've got another pipe welded up and ready to ship. Any takers?

$375, and I'll refund you $75 once I receive your core back.

Zero down time for your car, remove and install the same day.
