I am looking for pictures suggestions for large exhaust routing. Eg: 2.5-3.0" I have had this done and running for some time but it rattles or bumps to often. The car is lowered and has larger sway bars all of which make the space difficult.

I thought I had it adjusted pretty good ? Then

I added new rear links and this added a new problem plus rough roads .

Thanks

I was in the same boat as you... ended up running it out the side. Liked how it looked and it saved a little weight. I put my muffler where the stock resonator was, It was 2.5" from the turbo back.

If you're in the position where you need to run large pipe but dont have the room consider oval pipe.
It has the same cross sectional area. I dont remember which companies make it though.

In most cases that can help, but going through the rear suspension of a lowered swift with a large sway bar isn't one of them. I gave up after the 2nd try trying to get no rattles.

Thanks for the suggestions - I spent some time looking again yesterday. I wrapped the sway bar with rubber tape. This helped one spot after some adjusting.

The other thing I found is the rear links I had made may be part of the new rattle. Solid helm joints that are just abit loose. I greased them and noticed a difference.

You'll have to find a compromise that you can live with.

You can fit a 2.5 with no problem going the stock route just put an extra hanger near the control arm to make sure you dont get a rattle. 2.5 in will support quite a bit of power more then almost all of the street cars on here will make. 300+ hp

You're asking me? (I'm assuming, no other pics in the thread) They are SWT off an Aerio, that had the center machined so they fit the swift hubs.

on min i put the muffler under the middle of the car where the stock resinator was and in the back of the car i put a resinator. you can fit a large muffler under the car with ease. I used a magna flo valve technology muffler and a magna flow resinator. Nice and quite and then in higher boost muffler opens and gets slightly louder. Ill try to get pics monday

my brothers eg its got a h22 in it. Its a turd. He still wont run me even though he claims its like 225whp. That car is such a piece if you saw the cracks in the fram and all that have been welded up. Anyways that dragstrip video was just to show what it sounded like from behind and the other video was just a quick one so you guys would get an idea of how quiet it is in the car. Hope the vid dont make me look to bad i figured a video of the car with problems is enough to get the point across. Thanks Stephen
