Cool 2 Be? Or not 2 Be?

Has a side-exit exhaust ever been done on a Bonneville? I've seen a few GTO'* that way, wondering if it could be fabricated with a few cuts here and there

O yea its deffinatly possible. if i were u i would lay some aluminum tape between the underbody and the new route the exhaust will take. Lets see the finished product!

Yea, Im getting started on it today. Well blueprints for the cuts and everything. Anyone know where I can find a diagram or pic of the underbody so I can figure out where to cut the heat shield

Never seen that done either. Would be a great mod. Are you talkin like the side exhausts of some of the Corvettes or just tail pipe side exits. You should be able o find a blueprint you want at www.compnine.com.

Fixed your siggie for ya Man, you need to wrap andimage or smilie (gif) with img tags nut url.

I guess u could say that. Like how some of the Corvettes are. A closer resemblance would be the Vipers, where the tips exit before the rear tires. That'* y I need to cut the heat shield so I can find a spot to mount the hangers and put the muffler there. 1 in-2 out. Exit to either side
