|GripenTek9000||I've seen those hood stack on a lot of demo derby cars around here|

That'll probably put you in the back of your seat. Can anyone confirm?

through the hood stacks...turbo spooled with hopes and dreams. 80 psi agressive tune!

|fieldsc||make the exhaust terminate on the side between the front and rear doors, sort of like cobras..|
|09-20-2007 07:46 AM|
I doubt the gas tank would be an issue, the exhaust already runs very close to it, and the OEM heat shield makes things fine.
But as others suggested, this is not going to work well any time you are on a road that is not flat. Any time you straddle any sort of hump you're going to get massive dragging problems, possibly crushing the exhaust INTO your tank
Also, keep in mind that there are 500+ hp ng900/9-3s running around with the exhaust running in the stock location. The gains probably don't outweight the bennefits.
Now, that said, go try it and report back!

If you still have your plastic mid mount mud flaps - you allready know how much those rub Im sure. A full 3" exhaust outside of the channel will sit as low if not lower than those do.
I doubt however that the tank would melt from the exhaust heat - Im sure it has quite a high melt/flash point being a gas tank and exhaust temps that far back are pretty low.

|liketheword||The plastic gas tank is more likely to melt due to the heat. Plus the ground clearance would be a another big concern as mentioned.|

Yeah... unless you're gonna lift your car four inches before you do this (do it! hella rally stylez!), hanging a 3" pipe underneath the car will cause all sorts of clearance issues.
|09-20-2007 04:11 AM|
I would doubt the bends in the stock exhaust system pose any restriction whatsoever if you are using a 3" system.

|laxian55||That will hang down even lower off the bottom of the car, there is an indentation in the floor boards for your stock exhaust, and we all run 3" without a problem.|
|09-19-2007 09:36 PM|
Wrap that shit, dog.
Good luck, and take pictures!
I would also like to point out that the 9-3 (along with most new cars) has a plastic gas tank.
