they just tacked in place and the real tail pipe exits to the
side of the exhaust box .is that correct pierre.beetle still
looks like it has the std exhaust system though if one looks
at it at a distance.

Ja, I can see that. But why, why not just use the tail pipes out the back...

personally i would close up the valance and use
just the one tail pipe . With that exhaust setup no need for the
others anyway .

Why Why Why

Coz I can :lol: :lol:

it just gives that extra confusion to the un educated when they see the twin pipes

But Spoke to the Client which is a Good guy as his name is also Pierre :lol: :hangloose: and we might close the cut outs and smooth out the back valance with the hidden Tailpipe
One of the Big reasons why I always hide the real tail pipe on a conversion like this is when the bug is low then the tailpipe always catch thorough every driveway you go

But why don't you use the twin tails for an exhaust, then the low single pipe won't be needed and it won't catch on any driveway. Why, why? Oh WHY?? :lol:

I'm not really taking the piss, well, a little, but the question is a genuine one... :?:

Looks to me like you almost built a proper one right there, Bugger... One hole to close and another one, or two, to open... :idea:

I saw that. But I still don't have an answer to my question... Say the client had said, "Yes, I do want the two rear ones to be the real exhausts and I want you cut off and close the one that catches on the driveway, and here is lots of money for it... Lots!" What could/would you have done?

Let's see. Say you have a water tank that you want to drain. Which will drain it faster? One two inch pipe or two one inch pipes? You would have to increase the size of the two tailpipes, that it would not look stock anymore. All about airflow through the silencer!

Sorry, but kak! Those two tail pipes are not the same as stock peashooters. In fact, they look each the same as to one waiting for driveways. Therefore, you can get 4 times the flow through those two than you can get through the one (it's a quadratic equation, by the way...). It is about the flow through the silencer, but not volume, is my guess.
