Is it possible to fit a standard exhaust and get tailpipes that point down rather than straight out? I've currently got a turbo trip exhaust and the pipework that folds around under the back panel is pushing against my tinware making it not fit.

The problem is, in a previous life someone has put on a back panel without the cutouts for the tailpipes, so I wanna fit a standard exhaust but the tailpipes I think would foul the body.

Any ideas?

There must be something wrong with the header section of your turbo trip, if it's fouling the tinware. Has it been bashed ? The tailpipe stubs on the standard exhausts are too close to the rear valence to take any kind of bent tailpipe. You could try to get hold of a 181 exhaust with the tailpipes attached to each end of the box, but they are not easy to find, and very expensive. I'd try to get the header fixed first, or replace it with a new (straight) one. Rear valences without cutouts are hard to get hold of too. Are you sure they didn't just plate-over and fill the original cutouts ?

OH S**T! i did catch the exhaust when I first had the car. Guess I buggered it up myself then :tick:

I will do as you say and get a replacement header.

I think also you may be right about the plate over, as when I looked at the back of the panel, there's a layer with the cutout still there. :rolleyes:
