    I recently purchased a stebro euro exhaust that will replace my stock ferrari euro exhaust. I attempted a a test fitting this morning and it seems like I won't be able to route the passenger side pipe to the forward bank without removing the passenger side cv shaft.

    A big difference between aftermarket systems and the stock is that aftermarket systems are a single piece up to the headers. The one piece unit just won't allow me to maneuver the right side pipe through the frame and cv shaft area near the right rear wheel. I think it's probably similar for any after market exhaust. Can someone who's done it chime in with advice?

    Thanks!

    Hi Jimmy not sur if you tried this but if the car is on a lift or off the floor then the right cv axle will droop down.If you can find a way to raise that wheel and inturn the axle will raise enough for clearance.I used to have a custom made exhaust on my GT4 and it had the pipe feeding the front bank like the stebro and whenever I had to remove it I had to lift the right wheel up.I replaced it with an X-Ost and it was 2 piece.Hope it helps

    Maurice, great idea! Not sure how I missed that one, too obvious I guess. The shaft needs to move by about 3/4 of an inch so I'm sure it will work.

    Thanks!

    ANSA builds it with one long pipe too, that's the answer....lift the car and let the suspension lower.....
