I agree keeping the exhaust under water will reduce the fumes, but that's probably tricky to do in NYC and hell on the truck!

The exaust comes out the top in between the cab and whatever that is on the back. Still less gay than the OP.

John, I think you are kidding, but please take it all with a grain of salt if not. You'll see we are generally a pretty friendly and helpful bunch here.

I hope it works but to be honest if anything I'd expect this is going to make it worse. Let us know how it goes though!

i don't really hate you, just kidding...you guys are truley extremely helpful.

here's the update. After removing the vertical pipe, I cut the exhaust just after the muffler, attached a 90 degree elbow and pointed the exhaust down. It didn't work. Then i tried exhausting out the side, just in front of the rear wheel...this was even worse.
I have one last idea: similar the picture from one of the replys, i'll try to exhaust just behind the cab with a vertical pipe. As long as it pipe is high enough above the cab, this should work and be much less obtrusive than the first mock-up.
I'll keep you all posted.
thanks again!

I don't get it?? Why is this even a problem?? Aren't the stock pipes long enough to get the fumes out the side. I never smelled this in my st. Is it just a fastback issue? Are you sure your exhust system is free of any leaks?

Well, it's definilty not a leak because i didn't smell any fumes when i had that vertical pipe on. Too bad it looks so obtrusive.

I don't think it's a fast back issue either because even with the top off the smell is there and the aerodynamics on a fastback with a top removed, isn't all that differnet from another with it's top removed. Maybe my engine is just running really rich and smell is more noticable.

very weird.

Don't do it man! I'll bet you'll get the same reaction from us as the first attempt

At this point I'd say meet up with another defender owner and sniff rear ends. It really does sound like the problem is that your engine is running poorly. I drove a heavily rutted road yesterday and something juggles loose and my engine started running really poorly, but before I realized it was running rough I could smell the fumes.

With the exhaust existing behind the rear wheel you shouldn't have any problems with fumes.

I FINALLY finished up the exhaust pipe system, and happy to say it works fine...NO MORE FUMES in the cab
It may not look too subtle, but i like it and it sounds nice too. Kinda reminds me of a 18-wheeler set-up with stacks.
Just wanted to share a picture with you all and provide documentation in case someone runs into a similar problem in the future.

Btw, the top is not longer a fastback style...it's been tightened up to look like a cab style...pics to follow when colder weather rolls around and i put the top back on.

THANKS TO ALL FOR YOUR FEEDBACK!

Looks like shit. You should find the real problem. Ive never smelled exhaust in any Defender Ive ridden in. Ive never smelled exhaust in any convertible vehicle Ive ridden in.

If its anything like my truck it will get hot enough to burn at a quick touch. Definitely think you are fighting a symptom not the cause and it looks terrible imo.

This reminds me to get started on the 2WD conversion I've been wanting to do.
