914World.com _ 914World Garage _ Triad West Performance Exhaust

Posted by: Rocky Aug 13 2016, 08:54 PM

I picked up my new exhaust today from Dave at his shop in Olympia. My Bursch blew out coming back from WCR. I never liked the sound it had. This is a far superior product and sounds bitchen! Dave builds these one at a time by himself so don't expect them quickly. Takes a few months as he has a waiting list and takes his time. He ownes 2 teeners himself but doesn't get out to our events.
Great product, nice guy and lucky for me local! smilie_pokal.gif flag.gif pray.gif Attached Image

I wish they made one for the 1.8 heat exchangers !

Dave makes the best sounding muffler for our cars.
I love his solo II version.
He's a great guy to talk with.

Exactly, no texts or emails or nothing much happens. Got to talk to him. He picks up the phone immediately 80% of the time.

He definitely does. I talked to him about them way back in the day. Ended up going a different way on the engine but feedback is they are the usual high quality.

Posted by: rhodyguy Aug 14 2016, 11:22 AM

Seem to remember folks buying them for the 75/76 HEs. I think Dave was trying to broaden the market application. Again, call Dave ON THE PHONE.

I have one for the late heat exchangers.
works well.

Posted by: Rocky Aug 14 2016, 11:45 AM

This is the Solo 2. Left side normal exit Right side points down so you can keep the stock look with the rear valance.

Wow, this is just what I want. I will have to give him a shout to see if he can cook one up for my 1.8 !

Thanks !

Question: Can the triad be used with the Tangerine header system ?

Beats me Jim? Only if it has normal heat exchanger ends probably because he's not doing any more jigs.

Hi Dave

Great to see a picture, I had numerous conversations with him when ordering my pipe.


Posted by: pete000 Jun 5 2017, 06:29 PM

Got my new Traid West Muffler installed on my 74 1.8/2056 with SSi's Sunday.

WOW, This thing sounds great. Was running a Bursch (I even hand ground the ports. Bursch ports are not matched and full of globy welds) The Triad West is perfecly finished and is really clean.

My seat of the pants Dyno shows remarkable torque and power gains. Engine revs so easily now all the way to the red line now.

Really pulls hard up the hills.

Sound is nice an low, very mellow tone.

I went with the turned down passenger side pipe and Dave installed an 02 bung for my AFR testing.

Great product very happy. Highly recommended.

Thanks Dave ! first.gif

Also in the 'member vendor' forum.

I looked at two other World members' cars over the weekend. Oddly, both were equipped with Triads. Impressive looking units, nice sounding too.

Posted by: Steve Jun 6 2017, 02:37 PM

I have one on my 3.2, love it!!

Are these still actually being produced? I called him probably 8-10 months ago and ordered a muffler. At that time he said that my order made three to be shipped to Denver. None ever made it. After a few calls we were told that the business was closed and for sale.

So do I. Love the look and exhaust note, but I'm looking into baffles to tame a good bit of resonance at 2500-3500 RPM.

I also attempted to buy one of these about 6 months ago and talked to the owner. He said he was very ill and could not work. I have no update after that.

I have a -6 2-in/2-out unit in storage as well - very nice - I got it for potentially putting my car back to a quieter streetable config someday or maybe to pass sound at Laguna Seca.

Posted by: ctc911ctc Jan 12 2021, 09:46 AM

This looks like a dream muffler for my car - are they still available?

He still makes them and was trying to sell the business. I looked adding to my line up of offerings.

Posted by: Nogoodwithusernames Jan 12 2021, 10:57 AM

--Edit-- Replied too quick, just saw the other thread about the emails after replying here.

Anyone else get a strange email from him this morning? I have a feeling his email may have gotten hacked.

Posted by: Literati914 Jan 12 2021, 11:11 AM

Yes, I got a strange email from him this morning.. about the flu, etc.. we don't know each other beyond a small correspondence from a couple years back - so I bet he's been hacked.

I got the same email about buying gift cards, Forwarded the email to Dave.

Posted by: rhodyguy Jan 14 2021, 09:57 AM

Maybe he received it. confused24.gif His new device does not work. He's VERY aware, not JUST aware, of the situation. Call the number listed in member Vendors to order a exhaust.
