    Default 280Z exhaust changes

    I'm 2 weeks into ownership on this car and there's a ways to go. It has 2 glass packs, but the routing on the pipe takes it under the differential, slightly left. I can lift the pipe and it hits the diff. So today I had the shop look at it.

    Turns out the front glass pack had a pipe shoved all the way thru, making it like no muffler at all. And the glass pack in the rear was turned backwards. So I had them take the front pack out and brought back new pipe, routed correctly around the diff, and attached the rear pack the right way around. It breathes a bit better now, and looks better too.

    I would bet that the 1st glass pack with the pipe though it was an attempt at a resonator!
    Original owner of early '74 260Z that was rode hard and put away wet. Gonna try to revive it from a long sleep. I am old enough to know better - right, like that's ever gonna happen.

    Possibly. It was ugly under there.
