I don't mind them actually. Reminds me of "Zoomies" that were on the market in the '70s. Would look better I think if they were coming out of side skirts.

A word of warning though, remind people of the pipes when they're getting out of the back seat... especially women wearing nylons. I knew someone who burned her leg on a vette with outside pipes that had no heat guards on them, not only was the burn bad enough to need immediate attention at a hospital, they had to pick the melted nylon out of the wound as well. Just something to be aware of.

I like the idea of exiting out the sides, but I would have made a hole in the bumper, at the back of course and got a fitted tip to match the hole.

Wow, I am surprised ppl don't like it. I apprieciate the honesty tho. I think tips will make it look better. And by the way, it's loud as hell. I need a bigger muffler.

I absolutely melted my leg when i was little on side pipes. I am definately not feeling that idea but if you like it thats all that counts!

it's definitely a first. Right now I'm undecided about it. If you had tips on it, might make a world of difference in looks. As was already stated.... if you like it that's all that counts.

i would not put tips on it.

thats total rice.

it actually looks good the way you have it.. i hope a mechanic doesnt accidentally crush the pipes on a lift since the pipes are placed directly under the rear jacking points ! haha

as far as making it quieter... you might have some trouble since you are out of room for a muffler..

you may have to just add some small glass packs in front of each pipe in between the fuel tank and the chassis...

good luck... :)

keep us posted and forget about the tips.

yeah, that was the plan from the begining. the smalles i could find were 12" but they were still too big so that's why I just went with the one for now.

Magnaflow makes an 18" 4" round that is what i will end up with. Hopefull that quiets it down some.

By the way, i found this online exhaust store that seems to have the best prices around. Checkem out.

I like it! I had been wondering what side pipes would look like on a non-musclecar. I would agree with Hatchetman, blacked out would probably look better. Also if they poked through a sideskirt, that would be awesome.

I dig em man, they look good as is and like most have said, I think they'd look realy swank coming out of a set of skirts.

I noticed you also have painted them black now too, much better IMO ;)

It would look tits coming out of the MScarart body kit, huh? $850 tho plus painting and installation. Just too much.
