the Pipe built dual exhaust system on the Roadster - showing how he stood
the silencers on edge.
The dual system shown, of my roadster, connects to RV8 style manifolds also
made by Mike. It is essential to fit a balance pipe between the two pipes
up behind the bell-housing to make the car idle properly and the exhaust
to function properly. Also you have to centralise the fuel tank and mod the
right hand (from the rear) silencer.
These two pictures show the single system fitted to the GTV8
3.9, also connected to Mikes RV8 style headers.
To make a simple, clean dual exhaust system, we welded tubular
pass-thrus in the frame outrunners that are located just forward of the seats.
We fabricated a new seat mounting system that also provides pocketed locations
for the mufflers. The pipes stop just forward of the rear wheel arches.
The twin pipe system I made myself, it has an "H" crossover
pipe in the system. Note the "caps" I had to make these also as I was unable
to get hold of manufactured ones or those from a Midget.
