I would be so appreciative if anyone can help. I am building a Pilgrim Sumo cobra and dont want to fit the Pilgrim side exhausts to the car as i think they really dont look anywhere near the part. I would love to fit the Dax exhaust system (or similar) to my car but fear spending the 1950 + VAT for them not to fit. Has anyone got any experience of fitting dax to pilgrim. My cobra has a chevvy 350 small block V8. I have read various threads and will avoid roger at Shinybitz, ive seen fat-boy northern has many very good posts but he has decided to stop making them due to increased work commitments. I also live in the north of england so i cant get my car to some of the other southern exhaust manufacturers that some of you have used. Hope someone out there can help, thank you in advance.:rolleyes:

I thought the same, so I got custom chrome side pipes with quad collectors.
You just need to spec the manifold width and the length of pipe you want - got mine extended a few inches more than the standard spec.

Drop Steve-art (CRC member name) an e-mail. He makes some of the best sidepipes out there and is in the Manchester area. He also gave Mark (Fatboy Northern) the details to fabricate the original style exhausts.

I would recommend him to anyone who is after quality sidepipes. See my gallery.

Gary (GWAK) sidepipes.co.uk has a pilgriim, and has made a few sets of pipes for those. He is making me a set for my GD, andthough i have not got them yet, to date he has done exactly what he said he would do, sent me some sample bends and midified the pipes to exactly what i need.
(oh, and his pilgrim made a mag appearance as one of the best, so he knows what he is doing)

Certainly worth talking to Custom Chrome as they are in your neck of the woods - I've got a pair of their re-packable stainless 5" silencers in a side-pipe design. They were very reasonably priced, and look & sound the absolute biz. !
