I have always liked side exhaust on cars, but thought I would have to do more traditional ones on my Bird. Well I was wrong. Here are a few shots of it with side exit exhaust now.

Taken Saturday evening while out crusing.

Close up.

id be worried about the body panel melting. shorter pipes means less time for them to cool. plus if it runs rich black soot over a white car .

but that does look bad ass.

First off sweet ride, I hope mine will be that nice when i'm done with it. What kind of hood do you have and where did you get it?

No plastic or fiberglass anywhere near it. The tubes that the exhaust go through are insulated inside the body panels, and the pipe going through the tubes are wrapped with header wrap. Took the car for a 150 mile cruise last month, and nothing on the rockers but some dirt. The pipes stick out a little over 1 inch, so not much chance of sooting or burning.

Thanks. The hood is from Ageclassic, then I molded in the scoop for needed clearance.
