exhaust extending

I know this question is over asked, but what do u have to do to use a hatchback exhaust. can you just add an extention at the end or do u have to splice it in somewhere.
jon_akers

You just get a welder to add a section of pipe at the midpipe section.

Thanks Jon!!! Very Happy  So far your the only person to answer can someone tell me why it has to be added at midpipe? What does it interfere with? Confused
jon_akers

It doesn't interfere, the sedan is just longer than a hatchback, and a HB longer than a crx.

The reason to extend in the midpipe area is because that is a straight section, everything lines up from the rear except for the missing inches at the middle.

Roughly how short is it?
jon_akers

less than 2 feet short. somewhere from 6-9 inches between HB and sedan.

I extended the midpipe and tip with some pipe from another exhaust I had.







Be careful if you have a rear sway bar, you may have to tweak things to get the exhaust to clear it.
