C180/C185 Leading Edge Exhaust Systems

C180/C185 Leading Edge Exhaust Systems

<HTML>Leading Edge Exhaust Systems, Anchorage AK.

Does anyone have any experience with this new exhaust system?

My '58 C180's (SN 50167 w/a O-470K) tired exhaust could use an upgrade. Just checking to see if anyone has had some hands on experience with this. I've noticed that this system employs a single muffler and twin exhaust pipes. I'm wondering what potential installation and operational problems I might run into using this system.

Pictures of the Leading Edge Exhaust Systems are available at "www.borntoperform.com" website.

Thanks,

Mario Brusasco

<HTML>Hey, Mario!  I don't know about that one, but the PowerFlow Exhaust system has a pretty hefty rebate going on right now for Cessna Owner Organization members.  Up to $250!!  Check out their ad in the Novemeber 2001 issue!</HTML>

<HTML>Hey George,

Thanks for commenting and a big thumbs up to your indepth discussions on this site.

I've heard about Power Flow Exhaust several times before.  My situation is that it doesn't come in my favorite flavor - '58 C180.

I've poked around and have tried to find alternative systems, including changing my old style 6 clamp collector to riser exhaust system to the newer slip joint.  I figure this should cut out about 2/3 of the potential exhaust leakage around fittings (4 less joints).  Some of the 182 people are doing this with a 337 approval.  But I haven't come across anyone who has accomplished this with an older 180.

The Leading Edge Exhaust System in Anchorage looks kind of interesting.  I haven't been able to get a response from anyone via email.  I've got a friend up there who's going to go and personally knock on his door to see if this is a viable alternative.

If I come across something, I'll give this site a FYI posting.

Thanks again, George, for the outstanding effort you put into this arena.

Mario</HTML>

I am interested in what you have available for a C-185, 1976. Also do you make one for a 550 conversion same a/c
