Hey guys,

Bored and was curious what peoples opinions were on putting quad pipes on a VT/VX s-pack. Below is my car with a cheap photoshop of what it would look like. :idea3:

I was thinking i might have to change the tips to the ones that curve with the body or maybe something else that suits it a bit more so they don't stick out so much.

If anyone has done this before or someone else has pics of this i would like to see it.

Open for thoughts/ideas/criticism on the quads and the picture :)





tips that i am thinking of - 3.5inch pontiac tips

Thats a photoshop? Damn, nice job.

I reckon it looks sweet. I want to do this myself. Reckon you could do a chop for me?
Its not particularly hard to do, you just run one pipe behind the tank and then out the other side. Its not practical how ever, purely aesthetic.

yeah i can chop one for you :) not too sure if it will look as nice on a VY/VZ though due to the edge shape compared to smooth but i can do it.

As for my pic, I like it, but as a mate of mine said 'maybe it's look better if you had an 8 and not a 6?'

Still looks same but i think i get his point.

yeah but these days even four cylinder shitboxes have quad pipes

now surely a V8 should have quad???

so i reckon that if you can find someone who can do this at a fair price you get a lot of people

especially if it made the sound better

Very true! haha

As for sounding better it is extractors with 2.5inch cat with a long centre hotdog and early dump pipe at the wheel at the moment. Id have the same thing but on the other side too. I guess i'd split the exhaust after the centre hotdog? then run around the tank, dump at whee, then continue the fake piping to the tip. Don't believe sound would change. at low rev sounds 'v8ish'
anyway.


Found the sort of tips that i want -

It will sound identicle. All you're doing is chaning where the tip is.
If you want it to sound better, run a twin system. you'll have to to get the quad tip setup anyway. Unless one is fake.

i just want it so when you stand on one side you can hear it and the other side you can hear it. Don't care about sound etc, sounds great to me already, I just want it to sound even on each side. Any idea what the cost will be? going to phone round tomorrow anyway
