Default Anyone mounted sidepipes on a Beetle?

Has anyone mounted sidepipes like those used on a front engined vehicle to a Beetle and have them actually functional? or just fake?
I've been trying to find any picts showing a view of pipes mounted. Not looking for pipes that ONLY stick out in front of rear wheels, but pipes similar to those mounted on a Vette or Chevelle.

Thanks for any help,
Loren

Just google VW sidepipes. There are some videos out there. Also a numper of folks have done it, just don't know exactly where to point you for pictures.

now, I don't know much about exhaust pressure and whatnot, but it just seems like the biggest problem you are going to have in making them function with a rear engined car is that if i understand what you want properly, you want your pipes to exit the engine, go basically the full length of the car up to the front, and then go most of the way back to exit.. that's a LOT of exhaust piping.. just seems like a complete waste and would care very little pressure, might even encourage exhaust gases to build up and not exit properly..

but again, I don't know shit about shit, that's just my hypothesis..

Or, you can do like with my Alfa kit car. Full pipe down the side, but actual exhaust tied in right at the end of the run so it exhaused out the side pipe.

Buy these and do what Alykat Said... Just "merge them" at the back end of the pipe but hang something pretty alongside the body of the vehicle... It would work, I just don't see the need in a long pipe. I do like the G-Down ehaust though.

Run a set of side pipes then just do what was done above like reverse baja pipes if that makes sense. Will require some fan work but it'd be worth it. Hell I wonder if you could mount it in that edge the running boards go into.

J.C. Whitney used to sell a side pipes kit for the Beetle years ago. And they were functional!

I remember those. I always thought it was kinda cheesy, to put fake stuff on a car.

Why would you wanna run pipes up to the front ? I dont get it, just like those Gdown pipes don't make any sense , but maybe its just me.

I thought we had a vender on here that sold a system to make the exhaust exit ahead of the rear wheel. That'll get ya half way there!

just mount 'em backwards so the outlet is just behind the front wheels

Yeah the way I was going to go was g down pipes and have it exit at the rear of the side pipes ( in Australia we call them leg burners ).

Default Re: Anyone mounted sidepipes on a Beetle?

I considered going to go the reversed "lake pipe" route on my Operation X...
And I mean fully reversed with the outlet up front...

I stopped at the the quarter panel... but left it where I could always add on if I changed my mind...

but right now....
Decided not to yet...= More weight.. more heat.. and extreme noise in both ears...... Its bad enough with them exiting in front of the rear tires..

But .. its different and
You get to smell the sweet smell of real exhaust while driving.. or idling...
Not to mention piss off every bank teller and drive through window operator...
Plus those in traffic... those are the best.




If you have a swing axle.. take into consideration travel.. I routed mine under... I ALWAYS have to lock the spring plate up before raising the rear off the ground..
