Anyone got some pictures and possibly measurements of how far some of the aftermarket systems place the tailpipes from the bottom of the frame?
I’m making my own and what I’ve got mocked up seems really far down despite being higher up than the lower lip of the quarter panel seam.

The photo doesn’t frame this well but there’s about half an inch of overlap with the rear of the wheel well.

My Pypes kit, side exit came with little standoffs welded on, with insulator biscuit to bolt to the frame. I'm gonna guess 1" to1-1/2" to quarter panel. Can check tomorrow if needed.

If you could check please, that’ll be great.
Where I have the pipe currently it looks like it’s sitting far too low while being to high to clear the quarter panel

I am sorry, "saw a squirrel" and forgot about this, will check in the A.M., if no squirrels.

These are Pypes side exit. About 1” to quarter panel, 2-1/2” to frame. That’s 25mm and 62mm for the French speakers.
