Many riders are skeptical about the 20. There is no doubt about it. After all, decades have passed, and the 20 has not kept up with the pace of the times. The old engine, workshop-style body workmanship, and too many slots, But this does not affect riders who like it. The appearance that has not changed for decades, non-load-bearing body, mechanical time-sharing four-wheel drive, there are still many reasons for us to like it. The following 20 is my second car. Looking at my friend’s suspicious eyes, I still drove it back. From the moment I decided to have it, I was doomed to make it reborn. This post will continue to be updated, and we will continue to introduce modification plans. I hope everyone can give more opinions and discuss together. Let’s The 20’s are as perfect as possible.
After picking up the car in Beijing in April, I drove directly to Baotou to ask Brother Chariot to do a series of upgrades for the car. I posted the link here. If you like the car, you can click on the link. The post is very long, so you can watch it patiently:
Set off across the territory, 20 dream chasing trips!
Here is the text of this post. I believe that many 20-year-old riders have encountered a problem, exhaust resonance. Many riders have used many methods, and some results are not ideal. Here I will also mention one of my methods. , After all, I have also suffered from it (the old 20 exhaust pipe broke twice at the front flange of the muffler, and the exhaust tail was almost lost the last time).
To be honest, I didn’t know the structure of the 20 at the time. After all, we were not doing repairs. We found out a little after asking a friend who knew about exhaust. The entire exhaust section of our 20 is hard-connected, and the lifting lugs are only used for suspension. The shock absorption effect is poor. There is a clip in the front three-way catalyst and the bottom case of the gearbox. It is also a hard link and only plays a fixed role without shock absorption effect. It was the first car at that time, and the effect of the modification was not perfect.
Let me introduce to you here, but I can’t find the picture. Weld a piece of exhaust soft joint at the flange connecting the front end of the three-way catalytic converter and the engine exhaust manifold, and cancel the fixing of the three-way catalytic converter and the bottom case of the gearbox. Clip, added a pair of lifting lugs, and replaced the muffler with the eighth-generation Accord. It feels very quiet, but without the original 20-specific exhaust sound, I’m not used to it. It’s okay to use it for a long time. Sure, but there was a problem found during a high-intensity off-road trip, that is, the position of the soft joint was too far forward.
In this way, the three-way catalysis, the muffler, and the exhaust pipeline are all fixed by the soft connection and the lifting lug. In this way, the lifting lug cannot fix the entire set of exhaust gas during high-strength off-roading, resulting in a large jump, and the position of the muffler will hit the car. Body floor, although this kind of phenomenon is rare, it proves that this plan is not perfect. This car has been sold. With the lessons learned from the past, let’s study this car carefully!
This is an all-stainless-steel spiral racing in-line row that I found at the chariot big brother’s house! The effect has already been felt, very cool!
Spiral sound-absorbing racing in-line
This is also an all-stainless steel exhaust tail nozzle that I found at the chariot brother’s house. The outer diameter is just right, and it looks very harmonious after installation! The welding caliber inside is thicker than the exhaust of our original car, so I welded a stainless steel reducer here, but I am sorry that I have no record of the caliber data…
I found a welding master who I have known for several years to start the construction for us. First, we disassembled, finalized the size, cutting and welding positions!
Cut off the muffler of the original car, remove the two lifting lugs, weld it to the new muffler, add a welding soft joint to the front end of the muffler, then install the car first, and position it!
After confirming all the angles, joint lengths and positions are correct, mark them and remove them to complete the welding!
Grind all welds after welding!
Here’s a finished photo! How pleasing to the eye!
