View Full Version : tips for the Townie
02-17-2006, 01:33 AM
Well, my new exhaust has been in place for the last several days, and it's much better than the old one - no connecting adapters, H-pipe is where it needs to be and doesn't hit the floorpans, glasspacks are centered under the humps and don't hit the tranny crossmember anymore, tailpipes are nicely bent... But there is one problem, kinda - the tailpipes exit in front of the rear wheels, but this time perpendicular to the frame rails (before they were angled), and as of right now they're just sticking out, which ain't really stylish. So I wanna put some tips there, was thinking of those round dual 3" outlets with the angled cut (something like this (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8038658705)) - what would you guys suggest? Can't go 4" and above cause I'll be hitting them all the time, way too namy curbs and shitty driveways here. So yeah, ideas please?

Run full tailpipes.

I also kinda dig the hidden tailpipe thing. Side exits on a 4 door car just beg for burn marks on your passenger's legs.

I would actually kick the tailpipes out 45* after rear tires. Then you can run those tips (which are really cool BTW) and not have to worry about clearance.

If you wanted full tails but still something different, how about some trans-am style tips? It just came to me. I have full tails that are tucked up under my car and have a 45* turn down near the bumper, can't see them unless your looking for it.

Full-length pipes are not an option, for now - they require much more than the $30 my current exhaust costs and they'd be a bitch and a half to install without having the car up on a hoist, which ain't gonna happen till at least late summer. Having the side exits doesn't bother me one bit as I usually drive alone, or with one passanger at most. So for now I'll try to get those dual 3" tips, and I'll have them welded to an adapter of the proper size so I can put them on and off in no time and whenever I want :D
