Default Ewg side exit

I've looked around to see if anyone's done this before but haven't had any luck. Has anyone custom made a side exit for their ewg setup? Possibly having a location behind the front passenger wheel.

Have you looked driectly behing the passenger front wheel? Its not like on most cars where you just have to drill through the fender to have it exit. There are only a few inches of space before the door starts and its all frame. You could have it exit up through the hood or in front of the tire depending on where you place your ewg.

I don't plan to run it through a fender, I was more thinking of underneath the panel...if that makes sense? Lol.

Kent at Precision Chassis in Gilbert has done this on many cars in his shop. Go see him. He does the best work in the valley.

That said, it will be the LOUDEST thing ever. My EWG was in the standard location and I couldn't hear myself think most of the time. It's crazy. Loved it and hated it at the same time. It draws a lot of unwanted attention.

True true, however you should get better gas mileage and drive slower since you'll be afraid to get on it...

Sweet, ill look into him!

Yea I'm debating about this or running straight pipes for a little to get some turbo spool sound. But I still have my stock axle back for my long drives

I've heard both of those cars in person and they're retarded. Seriously, if you're doing this on your daily, reconsider your options. People don't want flames and **** shooting out the side of your car when you pass them. Cops will stop you just to be dicks, too. If you want an external wastegate, fine... but leave the dump in the regular location or route it down towards the ground.

Just routed my dump tube out the side behind my wheel today. Its way quieter inside the car with the windows up than it was before but if the window above it is open its loud as ****. I like it overall.

Took some video with a buddy just for kicks, threw it together. Doesn't nearly do the side pipe justice. I hit it next to a jersey barrier with the window down the other day and it was straight up painful.

Thats How I did mine, shoots right in front of passenger tire. Plenty loud. One thing I have noticed... Launch control blows the WGs open which kinda stinks because it takes more work to spool turbo.

Dual 38mm w/ 15psi spring.
