    SXR - Dry vs Wet Pipe

    I'm thinking of replacing my SXR Dry Pipe with the Wet Pipe to smooth out the power curve and also to improve on the bottom end for free-ride.

    Will this make a noticeable difference? I've tried searching the forums and while there is much debate I can't find a definite answer either way.

    Thanks

    Both pipes make good power, the Wet pipe will give you more bottom end, but the biggest gain will be reliability.

    Thanks, but will the wet pipe provide a smoother power curve?

    I don't know how hard the dry pipe comes on but I have the wet pipe and it is anything but smooth..........

    Just had a new SXR built with a DRY pipe. Can't imagine it being any smoother. It comes on STRONG from the bottom to the top. What is unreliable with the dry pipes?

    the later dry pipes have been reinforced so as not to have problems.wet pipes are not very smooth.a dry pipe with ecwi is the way to go as you can tailor powerband more to your lking.

    Re: SXR - Dry vs Wet Pipe

    Ok guys, how bout with a 750 sxipro exhaust setup with an 800 engine? the pipe's designs are almost identical as sxr ones, but face the opposite way. Should a dry pipe still be my best bet?

    Re: SXR - Dry vs Wet Pipe

    I think we're confusing these guys... The wet pipe does add a significant boost in Horsepower to the SXR but it's NOT very smooth.... Jetworks flow control valves clean up the bottom end a little bit.... Boring Exit nozzle to 80mm and slightly repitching stock prop will also help bottom end and is my next move.......... Wet Pipe seriously wakes up the SXR so don't think it doesn't..........
