      i dont think he means the whole entire exhaust..

      he means the exhaust tip comes out and at angle at the side..close to the rear wheel...

      it would be a lot easyer to do it like they do on new mustangs....just have the tip pop out of hte back of the side skirts....if you look under the car you can see it wouldnt be to hard

    11. 01-14-2002 04:09 PM #11
      yes

    12. 01-14-2002 08:01 PM #12
      those of you who said yes how hard is it.....im talking a single incognito hole right in front of the rear drivers side wheel through a side skirt....
      how much did you pay the shop or did u do it urself?

    13. 01-14-2002 08:44 PM #13
      I dont think you'll have the clearance to get a pipe through the sideskirt. You would have to cut back the rocker pannel and the floor board. Since the muffeler is behind the axel on the corrado you would have to not only have a 180 degree bend (like the mustang side exhaust) but you would have to find space to pass two pipes over the axel. If your going race only it wouldn't be so bad but to do that on a street car just seems like more work than its worth

      if properly done, it would look great.

      Yes I do. 3 inch from the turbo back with custom 3 inch flex pipe. No problems with the bolts staying on with the exhaust manifold.

      that must be loud, i have a 2 inch dp with no cat and 2.5 inch exhaust with a borla muffler with no tip and it way louder than my friend 3.5 inch dumps on his 302.

      It's only really loud at WOT and higher RPM. Sounds like a drag car then. at idle is sounds like any other borla exhaust. It's quiet enough to hear the turbo spool up at partial throttle. Haven't been pulled over for noise yet. Driving around town I keep the RPM's down to keep the noise down. On the highway, it on. It's all stainless, and pretty affordable actually. Schimmel custom built mine with the rest of the engine work.

    22. 09-12-2003 01:12 PM #22

      nice, do you have any pics of the exhaust under the car, or maybe a shot of it before you had it installed?

      Thanks

      why would he give away his secrets? So everyone else can copy?

      *Walmart is selling the stick-on dual side exhaust for $10.99. It has a double stick 3M tape on the back. I`ve seen some Honda boys sporting them

      lol, its just metal pipe. not too many secrets to be held there.

      my exhaust cost a whopping $40. one straight pipe off the header, joined to a 90 degree bend, joined to a $15 Cherry Bomb glasspack. its very simple. the hardest part is finding a place to bolt up a hanger to.

      i find it odd that in all these pics of side exhausts all of them terminate on the drivers side. why? do yall like going deaf?

      thanks cvovp for all your deep dark secrets I'll fabricate my own now.

      That's going to be nice... lemme know how it goes J.

      BTW, it's hard to believe Bill would consider Cody's exhaust a secret.

      Here's just a thought for you, something that might help tho.

      see if you can get ahold of a muffler (new, old, whatever) from a 340 Mopar, either a 70 AAR 'Cuda, or a '70 Challenger T/A, Both were 340s with side pipes. The way the muffler worked tho was the inlet came in on the drive shaft side of the muffler, inside the muffler it made a 180 and came out the same direction it went in. These cars had the exact setup you are discussing. Then you need like an elbow of some sort, and bam! done. I dunno how large these mufflers are, see if you can find the dimensions, I'm sure you can go ask NAPA or someone!

      no, we just dont like hot exhaust running next to fuel lines (and in my case N2O as well)

      i was going to do this a while back but didnt cause i thought id get black smoke all along the side of the rado? No problems with this im taking it huh?
      IMO, it doesnt look good unless youve got it going through your sideskirts, it looks kinda hessian just chillin under the side of the car

      cvovp you're actually running a glasspack?! i head a few 4cyl's with them btu they were rice like toyota celica and it sounded bad... i dunn how the G60 would sound with one but i can;t imagine a VR6 sounding bad ever... but i was thinking side exit exhause like on the ford lightnings... but i guess it's the same on a mustang? i don' like mustangs so wouldn't know honestly...

    34. 09-14-2003 11:34 PM #34
      the side exaust looks cool when theres big flames comin out . gotta love the straight pipes. (i know its not a corrado... but its still a dub )
