Wicked.

Unfortunately, Moto-T didn't make sets for my ancient RMX, so I had to go with Boyesens.

Is it just me or does the left stick out more than the right?

yeah..you caught me.

I was thinking that left pipe could use lose about an inch. I left it for now thinking I may cut them both back and add a slight bend that aims the tips more to the rear instead of the sides. I need to stand back and look at it in the day light.

Did you make the fuel cell? Can you take some pics of how you mounted it?

Exhausts are much like breast, they are seldom truly simetrical.
I think most of us hang our pipe a little more to the left.


Oh and how would you rate the volume of the Dynatech's? I have FM Delta 50's now and they are a good bit larger, very loud, but nice deep mellow tone until WOT. Those fit so nice.

My original cell was a simple (cheap) unit from Summit. I had some fuel flow problems with it and it only had foam, no bladder. I decided to just go for the "real" fuel cell and got this Fuel Safe.

Mounting: completely chopped out the rear floor, bat. box and spare tire well. Replaced with a welded in flat section that has a fuel cell shaped hole in it. The edges of the cell-hole have bent flange edges and a tacked in 1/4" x 1/2" bar that is drilled and tapped for all of the bolts shown.

I have perhaps a radical suggestion, although even I'm not sure it will look right, but I'll throw it out just in case - Since there are already exit spots on the rear cover, having the exhausts exit any way other than out the middle might look a bit odd. How about cutting both exhaust pipes at an angle parallel to the exit spots on the rear cover, and flush with it. You see this on a lot of cars today although they typically also have some sort of cosmetic piece on the outlet as well.

Anyway, just a thought.

Dave it is all very nice.
I hope this is not wrong to ask, but how much cash does I guy have to have to put a car like that together.
That can not be cheap to build such a nice car.
Looks top notch all the way.
