Exhaust-Side Exit!

Hi all.
I know several of you have modified your systems to exit in front of the rear wheel. I am considering moding my stainless system to do the same.
Can anyone possible send my a picture of how they have done it? That's the pipework!
Cheers

I'm sure you've thought of this but I'd expect it to be a lot noisier
exiting in front of the wheel. Any particular reason to do it?
On my 94 it exits sideways *behind* the wheel so it doesn't get in the
way and has worked well like that. Very simple to fabricate this
arrangement.
Sort of on subject - I can't remember if I posted this to the list but I
now have only the big central silencer on the 94 and it's quieter now
than the 93 with standard exhaust because the resonance from the front
box has gone.

Hi Jon.
I'll look at the rear of the wheel as well.
I will have just one large (empty) 'silencer' and the rear of this ends
about 7 inches in front of the rh rear wheel so it seemed like an easy place
to put a 90 bend to exit.
regards
Dermot

Hi Guys
I cant resist asking why would you want your exhaust coming out the side instead of the the back. I know that I heard of something to do with better fuel economy by running without the middle box or something like that. But would the noise not increase by running it out the side.

I can only speak for myself but mine was modified so that reversing off
a steep slope doesn't dig the exhaust into the ground and bend it
double. This happens if you attempt a steep climb and fail, going
forwards it's normally ok to scrape the back end but going backwards the
exhaust gets in the way ...
I don't think you get better economy but there was a rumour the turbo
spins up faster, can't say I've noticed but that's not why I removed
mine.
Cheers,
Jon.

Jon,
Thanks. Aha! I figured out you have no rear mud flaps. I was thinking
of it, too, but when I had the exhaust pipe made to order, I decided
to make it full length, terminating under the
rear bumper, only a bit shorter and higer up so it won't catch on anything.

There was a time when it had bumper corner caps, mud flaps and a side
exit tail pipe, it was just a bit lower down than the current one. I
just cut the standard exhaust at a convenient point and welded a bent
pipe on.
I've remembered another 2 related reasons why I went off the idea of
exiting in front of the rear wheel:
1) A bit vulnerable when scrabbling over humps / logs etc.
2) In boggy conditions you can get a huge build-up of muck in front of
the wheels that you're pushing along. Wasn't sure how the exhaust pipe
would stand up to the loading that might put on it (the muck can look
gloopy but be quite thick and dense and offer a surprising amount of
resistance).
Best Regards,
Jon.
