A-1 installed pics in Ghia...Excuse the Rust :D

The other pics are here(Also posted new ones too):

Hope this helps. As you can see, there is plenty of room to move the collector angle up a few degrees( I'll say about 10*) to give more ground clearance. Also, the muffler could be angled up and rotated on its axis a few degrees, and give even more clearance, without sacrificing power, or design.

ALso notice the sanding done to clear pipes, and make them able to slide in their corresponding bores.

P.S. Jake, maybe you can tell Tiger.

P.S.S The oil is WD-40 I used to clean the pipes

What have you done with your old system? I'm interested, and local - Gaithersburg.

Oval. The head pipes are quite nice actually, since they use stock flanges, which in my opinion offer the best sealing possible. I was not going to get rid of those, but I have too many parts at home, waiting to get sold. Anything else you may need?

Ephry73,

It looks great. Can't wait to get the engine kit and exhaust installed in my ghia.

Do you happen to have a photo of the back end of your ghia with the new exhaust installed similar to picture 3 on your your Yahoo photos? I'd love to see a photo if you have one.

Thanks,

Jim

You mean like a zoom out shot? I can get one by tomorrow. I need to go to get an apraisal on rust repair for the car. Where my car is parked now I cannot get too far, or get good light. I will definitely get that done tomorrow. There's good ground clearance for sure. Like I said, for us Ghia owners, a different collector pitch and muffler angle will be incredibly better. Also, the muffle rpipe sticks back considerably, a la Cal-look. keep your rear bumper, and you'll be fine.

Rats - I have square ports.

Basically, I need everything from the head on out. For that matter, I need a bunch of other stuff as well, but I'm just cherry picking now.

Hey Ephry
Would take a rought measurement. if you have the time, from the pulley out to the collector? I'm putting mine in a Splitwindow Bus and have been wonder how far out pass the bumper it's going to stick.

-From collecto merge to collector opening

Hope that helps ya.

Ok, here are the numbers. Sorry about the delay. It's been one of those weeks.

from collector bend, to collector opening, 10.25"
from collector merge, to radial bend of muffler pipe, 16.5"
from pulley/crank bolt centerline, to top of collector, 3.5"
from edge of case, just below the pulley, to collector merge, 3.5"
between the oil filter and the #3#4 pipes, 1.25"
