View Full Version : where to mount X pipe

01-24-2005, 01:41 PM
I have a 67 camaro with a BBC. i have a x pipe set up from summit that needs to be cut to fit lengthwise. my question is where is the optimum place to mount the X pipe, distance from header collector or wherever it should be measured from. thanks

Placement is not super critical. Put it where it fits best.

ok thanks. i wasnt sure if placement was a big deal or not. that makes it a little easier.

You don't want to install it too far back. When I was doing my exhaust I thought it'd be nice to have it far enough back that I could pull the tranny without moving the exhaust. Problem is that when the suspension de-weights, the drive shaft can hit the x-pipe. I'm in the process of correcting that now....

ok, i was under there the other night and im thinking of mounting it around the rear of the tranny. should have enough room there
