What exhaust from another car can be fitted on an SOHC Neon?

Post by uta_flyinghigh » Fri Dec 21, 2007 5:36 am

As the topic says. I don't want an aftermarket exhaust that acts as a cop magnet but I do want to reduce backend pressure.

Is there anything of a Euro manufacturer that I could use ?(preferably Merc/BMW/VW/Audi/Opel/Renault/Peugeot fior availability reasons)

you can mount a DOHC stock muffler to add like 5 HP.

Find me one in Tunisia and you're a rich man.
More seriously, I have better chances of winning the lottery that getting Neon (or any Dodge for that matter) parts here.

I see.. normally with the neon the muffler is horizontal mounted at the back of the car.

as you might me able to see on my pictures I have the muffler on the left.

This is a open flow universal muffler.

But there are also mufflers wich cost a bit more, wich are also open flow, but produce a lot less noise.

I think it would be good for you to find such a muffler. They can just be welded on the stock exhaust pipe at the left of the car.

Only think you should consider is that the muffler must not be too long, mine could JUST be mounted, I had like 1cm room to spare.

Your muffler looks good on your ride but would look ridiculous on mine.

I'm looking for somthing that improves performance and stays stealth-keyword here is discretion.

So it appears Santa brought me an aftermarket muffler. Therefore Loyus owners can sleep peacefully :-)
