I'm looking at doing the same thing,
& i dont see why you can't just put longer hoses straight through the tin & clamp them onto the heat exhangers ( rather than the stock exhaust pods ) providing you're still running exhangers & not J Tubes !!
I'd be interest to know about the valance issues ( if any ?? ) i guess it'll depend on the type of back box you want to use.
Anyone know the answer ????
Just fitted a ceramic bugpack mondo and 4 into 1 header to my 67 split and had no clearance issues with the rear valance. Connected new air hoses direct from the fan housing to the heat exchangers with no probs either. The [email protected]#rd problem was fitting the rear silencer. But it was with the bumper and not the valance. causing the head ache. ended up cutting away at my new bumper to make it fit. Looks the nuts though
