Relocate exhaust tip?

I was wondering if anyone has ever relocated the exhaust tip on a Defender?

The exhaust tip seems to be hangning out there in a very vulnerable spot. And I don't think I have ever seen one that was still round. More like a "D" on its side from coming down on a rock or something.

Is it legal/ethical to have it punch through the side of the rear quarter panelor or back ?

I have seen a setup on a diesel D90 (D110?) where the tip of the exhaust had been replaced by a piece of flexible tube and a hole had been made to the rear quarter panel. The setup looked nice (read: not getto fab! ;-) ). Not sure why that would not be legal.

Wow! That Defender has three exhaust pipes! I have seen that in several Land Rover magazines. I think if it were directly mounted to the rear quarter panel, it would vibrate like hell.

Check out the Borla exhaust. The tailpipe points down, not to the side like LR and NRP exhaust.

BTW...What's up Ade?!

Yeah, that is not what I meant, that Defender still has a normal tailpipe.

I guess my concern is that if water is a by-product of combustion (which is why you see water dripping out of the tailpipes sometimes) then water can get trapped in the system if the tailpipe is higher than the rest of the exhaust.

Goddam that is ugly.

Check out the Borla set up. The way it`s set up it sits pretty much flush with the lines of the body. If you come down on it, the exhaust would be the least of your concerns. I`ll try to get a picture.

The borla is sweet, if you want more clearance cheap just cut the exhaust at the rear hanger where it makes the 90degree bend

Whew, good! I agree with Nate, very ugly!

Hey Mike,

It looks like I'll be adding a new Defender to the family real soon! I'll send you pics when I get my hands on it.

I did that a long time ago. Works great for clearance, but the problem is that the airflow around the vehicle now pulls exhaust fumes back into the vehicle. So there is a reason LR made it side exit, believe it or not, that little change in position makes the difference in the wind carrying the exhaust fumes away, and drawing them back in...
