Default Trewey's DIY Side Exit Exhaust

Following a couple of requests, I've been out and taken some photos. As you can see, I didn't clean anything first.

The end-piece is a cut down boy-racer thingy from Trago. The finisher was cut and filed from a bit of (spit!) chequer plate that I had lying around.



The silencer is one of these, and sits nicely between the wheel arch and the chassis.
JETEX - HANDY ROUND 250MM (125) 2.5 - J-HANDY-25
it is mounted rigidly on 3 home-made brackets, so as to prevent it rattling in the hole in the body panel. (The flexi-pipe takes account of any movement).



The inner end of the silencer connects to one of these
JETEX - JETEX 45 DEG. BEND 2.5 - J-45-25

which connects to one of these
JETEX - FLEXIBLE PIPE 1/2M 2.5 INCH - J-FLEX-25

then one of these (the landy pipe is 2 1/4" diameter)
JETEX - STEPPED SLEEVE 50.8/57/63.5 OD - J-SS-25



It joins the stock downpipe just in front of where the first silencer box was originally.



I made a cock-up joining mine and had to do a bodge, that's why there's so many clamps there - there should be only 2!

The system is a bit louder than standard, but not outrageous.

the lack of paint on the sill, below the exhaust exit, is nowt to do with the exhaust. That was over enthusiasm with a pressure washer.

Good job and helpful pic's.

I was looking at Jetex's stuff last week, I am going to get the flexi stuff and drop my mid box, I will just cut the downpipe now like you did and clamp on the flexi, and cut the back section just before it would join to the mid silencer and clamp the other end of the flexi on here. Job done!

These peeps are cheaper for exhaust flexi. They do stainless or mild steel.
