Exhaust Extension

Hi All

Does anyone know where I can get a downward facing exhaust extension that will fit simply onto a Boxer exhaust. The factory fitted exhaust has a large rim around the end so makes it difficult simply to slip one over it. I want the exhaust fumes to be emitted toward the floor as we drive.

Cheers

Dave

Look for a local stainless steel exhaust business. They can make them to measure. I found one near Taunton who manufactured a new tailpipe for my fiat while I waited. Took about 2 hours and around 40 quids.

I'm not signing anything.

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home, and the other is to pursue something - a landscape, people, an exotic place. Certainly finding a place that you like or discovering something unusual is a very sustaining thing in travel.

I donít think an extension will remove the issue you have (soot spots on the side of your MH?)

The reason being that where the exhaust ends (a few feet behind the front wheel) is an area of substantial air turbulence when you are under way, so the exhaust gases are drawn up into that turbulent air, swirled around a fair bit, and the particulates get deposited on the side of your MH.

Itís a similar scenario with back of vans/estate cars getting much dirtier than the rest of the vehicle.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
