Exhaust pipes
« on: 26.08. 2019 18:01 »
I fancy some high level pipes on the A7, but one running down each side. Do or can the A50/65 pipes fit. Someone can tell if I'm wrong but you cannot get those for the A7???

Go to your local stainless exhaust center and ask then to make you some.

Just wondering if the wasp pipes would fit the head ports quick and cheaper than having them made

 maybe find a ratty set of wasp pipes to try. Otherwise its like believing you can buy the correct plumbing fitting by "remembering" exactly the size and shape you need.

 Thats why all plumbing jobs take at least three trips to the hardware store.

proper a7's run 2:1 or twin pipes on the right surely   ;)
if you really want to burn your legs get someone decent to do them as sand bends, being a tight radius they will look awful otherwise and tou can get them right before you chrome them

G'day BSA500.
I have a set hanging on the wall. Only used them for a short while on an A65 but made for A10. 1.5" straight through. Can't remember where I got them. so they are out there.
Cheers
