Pulled my exhaust off just before my diff today.

Comes out of extractors, thru cats, thru these barrell type mufflers then finished b4 the diff.

In the removed section it just had 1 muffler.

My question is, if i get two very short pipes bent up to bolt onto the end of where the exhaust ends now, and have them angled at the ground, would this still get my floor too hot? I've read before that exhausts dumped at the diff can get things very hot under there.

I know its illegal and i know ill get fumes in the car but its just for weekends. Just dont want to see my car f**k up for it.
Sounds awesome! Loud bark, not a drown.

Thanks guys

the exhaust must end no closer than 6'' within the most rear opening window in NSW laws, but if I were you I would take it out the side or after the diffas they are annoying as s**t when you have to drive it everywhere, when I see a car with no pipes I usually think to myself "what a tryhard" cant afford a tailpipe! .
but thats just my personal opinion, not aimed to offend

Cant afford a tailpipe? But I can afford to remove my system, have it modified and have pipes made up...

It's all been done and works sweet.

Weekend ends and the full system bolts back up in about 5 mins
