    Default i need a solution!!

    Hi there I purchased an irmscher rear twin exhaust exit splitter about two weeks ago i got round to spraying it and fitting it last weekend. I then purchased two of these, http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vectra-Signum-...item4aa5569db3

    with the hope that it would look like the irmscher exhausts but just a hell of alot less expensive. Now after fitting the rear splitter which I think looks really good colour coded instead of the grey trim that was on it, I came across a problem, I have the 3.2 v6 signum and the tail pipes on the twin exhaust aren't located where i thought they would be for this to work. They are located to the very outside of the exhaust exits on the splitter so they really need moved in towards the middle of the exits by probably the diameter of the exhaust pipe itself. So does anyone know if its possible to get like an S bend that is at tight angles to achieve this? Have looked on ebay and the net but there seems to only be a select few angles to choose from. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks. i will try get a diagram up of what i mean incase not explained good.

    diagram i have put up shows the exhaust pieces i have and where the existing tail pipes exit on the splitter the shape to the right hand side is the type of shape that i think will make the exits fit in the correct spaces.

    I think it will be easier to pop into a custom exhaust place and get them to advise the best solution or make a part for you..

    depends on what is best, you do not want too many bends you see as you will slow the flow of the exhaust gases. I am sure they will try and sell you new back boxes but ask if they can just cut and shut them, see what advise they have to offer for free and go from there.

    as stated, a tight bend will seriously impede your exhaust gas flow and affect performance
    get a custom fit
