    Well I think so anyways.   I took 5inch stainless steel exhaust stacks.  Cut a long pie shape out of the back side.  Brought it together with hose clamps and welded it up.  So now it has a 2.5 inch inlet to a 5 inch outlet.  I think it fits the van well.

    Lol. Yep. But I am thinking about re painting the van a nice bright metallic Orange. There just aren't enough orange cars on the road.

    Lol yep. I wanted something big and obnoxious. And I wanted to experiment with sound. I always wondered what effect a tuba like tail pipe would have on exhaust tone.
