side pipes?

hey guys, i searched i didn't find anything... is it possible to do side pipes on a trep? (2nd gen) either off to one side, or both. i havent seen it before but maybe i didnt look hard enough. im not an exhaust expert, but it wouldn't be preaty sweet to have some exhaust pipes comming out from behind the back doors, low, like right infront of the back tire. or even through the front fenders somehow... sorry if these questions are really stupid, i havent even looked under my car to see if it would just be impossible. i have a 2.7 if it makes a difference.
Thanks!

Well there is no way to put it through the fenders. Basically the only way to do it is to have it below the lowest point on the side of the car. The subframe is right at the bottom of the body panels so there is no room in there to work with unless you made a rediculous body kit.

If you did do it, it probably wouldn't look good and would scrape easy.

Will be right on the fuel line if going out drivers side. Thats why there is an indent about a foot in the center for the exhaust to go in. I have actually thought of trying it though after seeing this intrepid with a nascar theme.

I have seen a first gen trep around here in Charleston with side pipes. I am not sure they are working but I do know there are no pipes comming out the back. He also has a big wing on the back.

Legally, exhaust is supposed to be routed and exit behind the rear wheels. Visually, unless you're driving a muscle car, side pipes look pretty stupid. The ones i have seen on family sedans have usually been some hack job that ends in a piece of raw steel hanging out under a door. If you could find some way to make it look professional and work with the car, then go for it. Otherwise, go out a buy a Torino with lake pipes on it.

I have to agree with RCE2WIN......putting side pipes on a FAMILY SEDAN does not look good.

The only thing that might look good, is if you brought the pipes out behind the rear tires with a 90 degree bends, if you want it to look like a truck LOL. But straight out the back is the best in my opinion.

I wanted to do pipes out the side (no side pipes, just the dual tips) The problem is clearance. Having lowered my M 2" plus the the pipe diameter (of at least 2.25") so if you hit a speed bump the system is toast. Not to mention having people burn their feet when entering and exiting the car.

Well fuck people's feet, they can watch out. Plus it would be pretty funny. Even not lowered the clearance would be an issue.

Not if you see them several times a week. If I get serious and look arond for 1"X4" rectangle exhause pipe I may still do it, and once I get my air ride hooked back up, then it won't be a problem.

There's a guy around here who made a nascar style intrepid. Made the nascar charger nose they were runiing and put the nascar style rectangular side exit exhausts. Looks pretty good and sounds not bad.
You can do it if you want to spend the cash.
People seem determined to put huge wings and cowl induction hood scoops on intrepids, why not side exhaust?
If you like it, [email protected] everyone else. It's your car, not thiers.
Side exit exhausts are not illegal, at least not in Nova Scotia.

Just to clarify, there is a difference between side pipes and side exit exhaust. You seem to be talking about side exit.

Side exit:




Side pipes:

godfather was referring to side pipes, I was referring to side exit tips. That picture of the T/A Challenger sure brings back memorys of my 70 Challenger.

yeah, i wasent clear... i was thinking about side exit not side pipes but i guess you cant read my mind, it probably would be almost impossible to do, but i still think if done right it would look sweet.
