geoffbeaumont Posted September 11, 2006 Share Posted September 11, 2006 I'm shortly (probably this weekend) getting my hands on a rangie which has, among other things, a rather nice stainless exhaust on it. The rangie isn't staying around for long but needless to say by the time it departs it will be breathing out through something a little more ordinary However... there is one snag with this exhaust. It has a rather long tailpipe, which I'm going to have to do something about, cause it won't last five minutes off road. I had in mind modifying it to side exit, since even the standard exhaust I have now takes a hammering (and I'll care more about trashing this one), but having been and had a look at it tonight that's going to be difficult without losing the rear silencer. Stupidly I didn't think to take any photos. The exhaust already has a nice burble, so I'm not mad keen on losing silencer - I suspect it would make it very annoying on long drives, and possibly antisocially noisy for laning. I suppose it might be possible to cut'n'shut the silencer into the exhaust further forwards, but I presume this will have a fairly large impact on the exhaust note? Ideas? Should I just trim the tailpipe and accept that I'm going to thump the silencer occasionally? I guess I should point out that I don't have access to pipe benders, welders or anything else more advanced than an angle grinder, so any significant mods are going to involve handing over money to someone else.
