Exhaust Extensions - A Temporary Test

Completed 8/7/2006 - Added 8/17/2006

Got these 6" exhaust extensions from Larry Vetterman to test out and see if it made any difference on tunnel temps.  For those who don't know, my temps aren't anything unreasonable.  My tunnel is fairly cool on top, but warm just within a few inches of the tunnel, down near the floor.  I can lay my bare foot on the tunnel and hold it there with no problem.  But, even though I don't have a "problem", there is still room for improvement, so I'm going to try a few things to see how good I can make it.  If you haven't already read the tunnel heat section of my tips page, read that too.  I'm also going to add a mechanical fuel pump cooling shroud soon.

What I found is that I didn't notice any real difference in noise, and/or heat after adding these extensions.  I also didn't notice a performance change.  I may actually just spend the money to have new one-piece tailpipes made, since the new ones are coming longer than the ones I have.  It may not make a noticible difference, but it can't hurt, I guess.
