If possible, you can use my car. I think there will be room to fit it, if I take off my setup. You just wouldn't be able to get the exact location of the OEM flexpipe joint. Let me know if this helps.

Post Re: Exhaust system for the Mx3
Is this a header back system or a cat back system that you're working on Derrick? One of the big problems on the GS is the poor fittment of aftermarket headers which are made for the Probe/MX-6. The headers themselves are fine but the y-pipes usually hit the subframe and/or oil pan. It would be great to have a good fitting system built for the GS. Even just a y-pipe to use with Probe/MX-6 headers would be helpful.

Thanks

We are just looking at doing a cat back system for the MX3. We didnt have plans to offer a cat delete for the car.

Have you found someone with a stock setup yet? I guess I have a question.. You are making a catback for people with stock exhaust manifolds, are you also going to make a cat back for the people that have headers? We use mx6/probe headers and the secondary is about 6-8" longer then the stock exhaust secondary.. You may want to offer two options in that case.. Or just one option, for the aftermarket headers as almost noone is running stock manifolds on a klze or a performance driven mx3..

Just an idea

Post Re: Exhaust system for the Mx3
yeah why not create a setup for mx-3 owners with the SS autochrome headers? Why would you put a catback exhaust on a stock manifold setup?

someone looking for performance is not going to use the stock manifolds on a klze... and we always discourage putting money into a stock k8...

Also If you do get a donor I know I would definatly shell out for a stainless if not even a titanium option.... I already bought a pacesetter but grinding it down and repainting welds gets old and I would much rather have something of higher quality that could indure the winters. Just another thing that I think would help you sell them, and if you ever make a second office in NY Ild donate mine for any R&D sessions :wink:

I have a completely stock exhaust on my parts car that I could donate, but again I'm nowhere close to the desired locations.
