Default Side exit duals?

Just wondering if anyone has tried it...

My Uncle has a muffler shop here in Wyoming, so bay time isn't an issue.

I want to route the pipes so they exit right before the rear wheels.

Any suggestions? Tips? Hints? Pics?

There is NO vehicle inspection here in Wyoming, so...


anyways, as always all help and info is appreciated!!

I believe it would look pretty cool, there are just a few things:

1. Although the midpipe has a hanger, you are going to have to attach the pipes to the car somewhere near the tips.
2. Where are you going to put the muffler? Unless you get a very flat one, you arent going to have much clearance under the car.
3. Most side exhausts exit in a tip which is molded into a sideskirt or something. I think it would look funny if there was just a tip there (unless it was custom fab'd).
4. You are going to need thin tips...since the car wasnt made for them, there isnt alot of clearance over there.
5. Heat shielding...just so you dont melt the underside of the car as you are going under the passanger compartment.

My opinion-it would look dumb. I say go for the dual exhaust instead

im a huge shelby cobra fan, but even then is till thinkt hat dual exhausts would have been nicer comming out of the butt rather than the sides. Maybe its personafying/anthropormorphizing a car, i know i cant spell , but is till think dual exhausts look much better that dual side exhausts.

a set of true dual pipes would harmn your low end. since the firing order is 2 on one side of the engine then 2 on the other, the first pulse on each side would have no scavenging effect.

Thumbs down

Not to mention it will sound like total crap with the pulses exiting on different sides.
Don't do it; you'll be sorry you did.

Its been done on a Ver3 or 4 STi in England. The problems they faced were muffler location (fight fit in the driveshaft tunnel for a muffler) and even with the glasspack like muffler they went with the owner said it was still VERY loud (mind you, this is with a turbo quieting things down too). You'll have to mod the side skirts to fit and fab some heat shielding for the fuel tank... other than that go for it.

as long as it went into a single pipe and then back to 2 pipes downstream, it should be alright. just remember how NA cars need to be tuned.
