Default Side pipes on a box?

Has anyone seen side pipes before? I think they might look good!

Post pics if you got 'em.

I personally think it would look hot..

I deeply considered it also... Corvette style with the chrome vented heat-sheilds... The catch on my part was finding a shop that could cut quarter sized scion symbols as the vent cuts on the heat-sheild.

Post pictures when your done... I would love to see it.

I haven't found the lakers that have the muffler insert yet, want to put the catalitic converters (2, one for each side) between engine and firewall.. think that there will be sufficient room.
but do wonder what effect will have on warrenty issues if any.
if it ain't pretty ..it's gotta be loud

baby moons,fuzzy dice and functional lake pipes..

It's been done already... there's a guy on here who's had that for a while now. It's a two-tone with 962's on it, can't remember the name tho.

that's a lot of stuff to be plumbed in right up front. Not to say the potential heat problems that could occur on the floor boards due to the cat's and the reroute of the piping. Definately do-able though.

Hanging the side pipes would be the easiest part. After the side skirt removal, there would be tons of space and (if memory serves me correct), 6 plug holes on the side and 8 underneath already there for hanging points.

Back in my VW days there was a guy who routed his exhaust from on his bug back up to exit just infront of his rear tires. Course there were no cats back then and the space to do so was abundant, the end result was a totally different look.

When I was thinking about it, my thought was to actually send the pipes back about 2 feet in the normal routing and split them at a reversed collector. Then reroute 1 1/2" pipe back up to to the side pipes ( basically an "S" shape).

As far as muffler/side pipe styles go.... ??? I have no idea what is available. lol.... you could always go with the cherry bombs....

I had sand pipes on my 56' Baja. Which was basically two "free flow" mega pipes. It was so loud that you couldn't talk inside the car at highway speed.. Course the noise kinda dulled the overwhelming wind noise that came from the rusted floor boards. LOL... makes me kinda laught now.. My stereo consisted of a boom box, tie wired to my roll cage. I went through like 8 D-celled batteries a week and the car had a center soft top that never sealed. So in during our 8 months of rain here in Oregon, I had a constant source of fresh drinking water dripping off the roof at any given moment... Sorry off subject a bit...


Again, post picks when you are done....

Someone should post a photoshop job of a box with sidepipes. I think it would look good.

you'll also wanna consider your state laws some states wont let you alter your exhaust in that way. they want it to exit rear of the vehicle. not the side. good luck with figuring it out. i'd personally leave a single cat and do a y pipe. cost less. don't as high of an issue with setting off the obdII cel

side pipes is different, I made that same set-up on scionsniper's xB as well. I used an oval tip on that set-up instead of the square tip though.
