I just found this and am excited since it looks like a lot less bends and easier to fabricate.

Is there anyway this style of attaching an exhaust (aka cheater bends) will work with the 5 x 11 x 22 in 3" tubing ?

18psi do you have any pictures from directly under the car so I can see clearances all around ?

No other pictures aside from what was posted.

I have since sold that exhaust and am about to build a 3" exhaust with a smaller resonator for more flow and a bit more sound for my new bigger turbo setup.

I'll post up once I start on it.

Here's some pics of mine- same position/routing as 18psi, but I rotated/tilted the muff more to keep the bends' entry/exit aligned with the passage through the muffler. I don't have the rear subframe brace, but made an effort to keep the exhaust up out of the way for it when I add one.

It's whatever the big one y8s, brainy, pat... and everyone else is using. Well documented, just not in this post.

y8s u r full of ****. Both those cuts are just a bit short of 90s to match the diagonal pipe. With all these U pipes going into the muff, I beginning to think you sell tubing.

wow this thread is old.

what kinda idiot started it?

OH WAIT


Anyways, that was a long time ago. I have a much better/different exhaust now. And its as smooth as hustlers *****.

No cheater bends, full 3" with mandrel bends, dual resonated, single (although smaller) cannister, flex bellow, the works.
