    Side Pipe, Ss

    Here are 2 pics of the side pipe I have on 99 Camaro SS. I have an SLP ypipe, going into a 8" length of 3" pipe, then into my Borla XR-1 3" race muffler, off of the Muffler I have the side pipe which shoots out in front of my right rear wheel. My car is lowered and the only thing I had to do to make this setup streetable was install those cheap <$10 coil spring spacer that you twist into the rear coil springs, got them from autozone.

    LINK to sound clip of camaro with side pipe

    This is the day I finished welding it on, this gives you a pretty good idea of what it sounds like from inside the car.

    I'll give it to ya', its a rare setup on f-bodies, but I only like sidepipes that exit though a body molding, like a sideskirt or something. Plus (no offense), the tip looks like shit. It looks beat up and half-assed. Get some brand new shiny tips to expose on the side. My friend's cervini kit on his 06 GT has side exhaust and it looks sweet as hell. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2341272/3

    No offense taken, I guess I should have said in the first thread that I am not finished with it. I just wanted to post up what I had done so far. the current tip that you see is about 6 to 7 inches in from the side of the car, I have a tip section of pipe that will be welded onto the existing pipe that you see now, it will bend so the tip is coming out almost straight out but a bit to the back, and that is polished. All the piping on there now is form a f-250 powerstroke diesel, and I just cut out the bends and welded on my car. I didn't finish because I wanted to find a bit nicer looking piece of pipe.

    Stay tuned there will be more pics up when it's completed later this week

    Thank you, I appreciate that. I don't know of any side moldings available for the camaro, if you guys do let me know for sure. Working on the car on jack stand in my garage is not the easiest way to fab a side pipe, so Im not going for the show look here, its mostly for function. If I were to get serious I would make it like the Speed GT and ALMS race cars, out the rocker molding that is stock on my car, but I would have to cut a whole through the fram rail to do this, which I'm not sure if need to do all that. http://picasaweb.google.com/Allmotor...32052780269586

    dude I totally know where you are coming from. I love the side exhaust option on the roush mustangs. gives it a little something different, but come on did you find those tips on the ground somewhere?

    Dude, if you read my reply a few lines down, it says that I am not finished with the exhaust yet, I still have to put a tip onto the existing piping. My rear went and I am focusing my time on fixing that, then I will completet the side pipe and post new pics.

    Thank you for appreciating hard word!! It's great to accomplish something on your own that took some time and skill to do. I will surely post the completed pics in the next week or so. Im still trying to finalize how I want to do the tip, I wanna make sure it looks great but functions properly as well.

    I actually spray painted the piping that is currently in place matte black, mainly because I wasnt done with it and was trying to hide the beat up pipe until I get a nice tip. I heard that about the twist in sprong spacers, but I had them in for the for a week until my pinion bearing went and I wasn't exactly driving it easy at the time and they haven't managed to fall out yet... but I am still going to watch them to make sure. Thanks

    f.y.i. here is a little secret go to local hardware supply store and buy grill paint much more heat resistant than any duplicolor high temp and will last longer.

    lol, thanks, I used high temp exhaust paint, which is basically the same as grill paint. I think it withstands up to 1400F

    nws Camaro Sound Video footage

    This is 5 different videos I have of my car spliced into one video. The first 2 sections of the video are with my Borla muffler hanging off of the y pipe nothing after that. The rest of the videos are with the addition of the side pipe.

    Let me know what you think.
