This thing took me ages as I just had the car on jackstands. Those of you who have made your own exhausts like this will sympathise with me!

Looks good. I had mine dump staight off the muffler ahead of the diff, but it was too loud. I had to ditch the swaybar to add a tailpipe over the axle and out the back. It's much quieter now. Well, it's quieter inside.

Didn't even notice the flat springs. I have lowering blocks but I want to ditch them. How low can you go this way?

take them to a spring compression/suspension shop and ask them to compress your leaves, to whatever amount you want the car lowered...or you could flip them completely and then cut your rubber bump stops down to a 1/4 and then your car would be bumpeyed...and thats as low as any datsun 1200 will go at the rear end unless you cut the bump stops out all together and or cut out the entire back guards to give more room for your wheels to rotate and not scrape so much. argh the joy.

Looks like nice work, must be very difficult to get such large pipes around the axle.

I like how you are doing the work yourself.

What is the axle housing from? Looks beefy.

Yeah I don't know what car you have this in but with mine lowered I had no room to run the pipe past the diff so Mine dumps before the diff. Good job I must say, for a DIY exhaust...

How are you finding the ride with those flat springs?

 Re: My new 3inch exhaust
Your lucky to get 3" up over the diff !!! does it hit at all while driving??
The best I could ever do was 3" to the diff then 2.5" over even then it would ocassionally hit. Mind you it was close to 3 inches lowered with reverse eye springs. I now have a 3" from turbo to 3" resonator into duel 2" and out the side just infront of wheel Im yet to make the big oval exit pipe.
BTW what kind of diff is that?? A shortened borg warner ???

 Re: My new 3inch exhaust
Yeah spot on. It's a shortened BW and the diff man actually welded the outer section of the H145 housing(with the original mounts) back onto the BW housing. I think That has something to do with the amount of space I have. It might knock if I load a few fatties in the back seat but the car isn't for commuting!

As for the ride it's not legal yet so I don't know. It's quite firm on all corners.

All up it cost me 5x$15 3inch bends, $20 worth of straight pipe + $120 muffler. So $215.

 Re: My new 3inch exhaust
Yeah pretty much....apart from the lowness. I'm going to re-paint it in the original pale "mint" green to give it that stocky look. Plus I suppose the colour has grown on me as I've been working on it for the last year or so...
