Anyone have any tips/pictures on how to do a 'raw' type of side exhaust like the 00' R has. I DO NOT want the SVO side skirts. My only problem is I have MM Full length subframes. Just wondering if there would be any major modifications to make it fit?

Thanks.

Bare with me for a second...what if, instead of going straight to the side after the muffler. The pipe traveled a little further and went 'around' the subframes. I looked under my car and it seems like the only obstacle would be the brake lines.

Then the potential for it drag the ground would be even higher being in the middle of the car. :confused: That, and it'd look pretty goofy.

I just finished installing a NASCAR side exit system on my race car. It's a 92 LX and I bought the exhaust from a NASCAR shop on ebay ($90). I had to reduce it's width by 7" and the exit is 22" wide by just under 2" tall. It fits good especially under the subframe connectors. This however would only work for a track car, it's rediculously loud and obviously has no cats.

Interesting...got a link to the seller on eBay?

If I was wanting a "raw" side-exit exhaust with subframe connectors on a lowered roadrace SN-95 chassis (assuming this is what you have since you mentioned SVO sideskirts), I'd use oval tubing as mentioned combined with subframes that run through the floor. However I'd definitely use oval tubing from as far forward as possible if I intended to drive the car on the street at all, as the floorpans alone sit pretty low on lowered late-models.

FWIW, here is a pic of my '65 setup. Notice I was able to use 3" round tubing, but the floor on my lowered '65 sits significantly higher than an SN-95 with a typical lowered stance. Regardless, the chassis layouts are similar enough so the subframe connector design could be fairly similar. Options to align the connectors to the offset subframes include making bends in the connectors themselves, or tie them in through a middle section of boxed steel, as I did on the rear framerails.

Like that...





Oval Tubing (i.e. expensive!)

The car has IRS and frame connectors. Good drop on diff temperature too.:cool:

I had a picture of the finished project but can't find it. I bought a set of ball flanges and picked up where the X-pipe ends. This way I can easily bolt/un-bolt for the track/street.

I did it mainly for weight save and found out that the heavy wall Dr. Gas pipes are, well... heavy.

I remembered this when I saw this Roush with pipes bent just like you were talking about. http://www.performanceautosport.com/detail.asp?car=6019

I've wanted to do something like that too, so I car fit some SFC's with the Borla's.

Looks to me like that Roush has a modified control arm mount, plus the fact that they're basically race arms gives them some extra clearance for the exhaust tube.

Grind 'em off and get Spintech stuff.
On the right track here. I also went with the Spintech subs. They are a step design and give you added space for the side exit. I'd rather run the NASCAR open pipes, but some of the tracks I go to have noise limits so I stayed with the Spintech stuff.

does it make a difference having the mufflers before the x pipe. I am about to do my exhaust and I want to do it exactly like yours

You can also modify C5 corvette mufflers and use twin 2" muffler out each side. Cutting off the inlet and adding a straight piece. There is a thread about this on corral. If your lucky find a Z06 owner selling a set of factory titanium mufflers
