Help Support: Tomei Titanium Exhaust

EXTi-welds-6

HRs own Allen Lorenzo who works at Tomei Powered in Japan has been striving for years to push Tomei produce more AE86 parts, but after a lot of persuading it’s about to get better! He writes:

AE86 brothers, your support is needed! It has taken me years of persistence and finally I am close!

The head management at Tomei Powered Inc in Japan is now considering going ahead with the development and production of a Full Titanium cat back system for the AE86!

Yes that’s right, FULL as in the piping and hanger arms are completely 100% Titanium!
The only parts that aren’t Titanium are: 

- The springs that connect the piping.
- The Clamp Band that connect the piping.

However, the prototype hasn’t been made yet, so more details will come later if it gets the go ahead.

FYI: The Tomei EXPREME Ti for the MITSUBISHI LANCER EVO 10: weight comparison is:

- Stock is 20.05kg (44.2lbs) 
- Tomei EXPREME Ti is 4.4kg (9.7lbs) 

For full details on the product, view the official blog here.

Ref: My Toda Racing stainless steel cat back system weights around 16-18kg from memory.

As you all know, the key characteristic of the AE86 is being lightweight. For those of you whom have been fortunate enough to have a right in a sub 800kg AE86, at full throttle, high speed drift or at the limits of circuit driving, will understand the difference.

So I urge you all, please complete this simple online survey, so that the key members at Tomei can see your valued comments.

In the comments at the end; please feel free to add any other requests.
Even suggestions on: 

- Pipe diameter size (due to regulations in events or laws in your country/region).
- Layout (over the rear axle or under it).
- Tail tip diameter; nice cool subtle size or a big ass American sized cannon! 
- The exit angle of the tail pipe (straight out or on an angle)
- Straight / De-cat pipe; (do you want it included with the kit or not).

PS: Even if you’re not going to buy it, please spread the word and get as many enthusiasts  as possible to complete this form!
