View Full Version : Different exhaust placement for an Avanti?

11-06-2006, 12:44 PM
Although we have designed the new stainless Avanti frame to mount directly to the hog troughs like the original frames, we have been considering other ideas.

One is to mount the stainless frame directly to the body/floor pan as the rear of the car is done. This would eliminate the additional expense for an Avanti owner of replacing rusted out hog troughs. This could be a savings of multiple thousands of dollars for the hog troughs with their installation.

Having said that, we did the hog trough installation on a friend's car, to keep the original style hog trough equipment.

Should the hog troughs be deleted, can use wider, as well as more body mounts to provide additional structural support.

The other is to run the exhaust at the perimeter of the frame, reducing the under foot (hot) temperature in the cabin.

Here is a mock up of what we are thinking.

This is a side view of the stainless chambered exhaust tucked under the rocker panel.


Here is a picture simulating the chamber exhaust tucked in where the hog trough was.
