Someone have one, or willing to draw up a little, shi*ty diagram for me?? I've heard all kinds of things, that the pipe should be bent 90 degrees, that it should be bend 45 degrees to ensure better flow, etc, etc.....what have you done that works the best?
I know a lot of the Corrado owners in NYC said they had just gone to their local Midas or Meineke and had them custom bend a piece for under 40 bucks....thats my plan, I just want a basic diagram so they don't find some way to F it up....seems like whenever a Corrado is involved, anyone can mess up, stealership, tuning shop, me, expert, ANYONE.

So yea, if youve got any pics of your suitcase eliminating pipe or can draw a little diagram thats basically the setup youve got, PLEASE post em or email em to me!!!!
TIA!!!! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
ps - dont forget to add diameters on the diagram.....also if you could just describe it in some kind of detail instead of drawing it, that works too....I just want something to hand the guy who's going to be making this for me, so he wont be able to say i didn't tell him exactly what i wanted

you don't need a schematic...just take it to whatever shop and let them have at it. Its just a short piece with 2 45's. It will be a lot easier to break out a tape measurer than to draw up a schematic.

Louder than stock, but not louder that it was unbearable. I've had mustang/camaro guys compliment the sound of the exhaust without the suitcase...
Performance wise the only advantage is the weight savings, which isn't much of course.

Re: (nuklyus)

i had mine with nothing from the exhaust manifold to the muffler. just straight 2.5" pipe. it sounded like crap outside the car. but inside it sounded really good. like a low rumble. then i went to the TT exhaust and it sounds much better outside. no raspiness but inside is this loud droning sound.
