EMPI's VW sideways merge design of the stainless steel sideflow exhaust system tucks the exhaust pipes up behind the apron for great ground clearance and a hidden, performance exhaust. The header pipes are made from 1 5/8" stainless steel tubing and the muffler sits next to the right valve cover keeping it out of sight. The side flow exhaust fits 1966 through 1973 standard Beetles and 1971 through 1973 Super Beetles. In addition, it will also any year Beetle, Super Beetle or Karmann Ghia with a carbureted, 1300cc-1600cc based engines.

No Heat Risers

The sideflow exhaust system does not have heat riser provisions. So, we do recommended using this exhaust with dual carbureted engines.

V-Band Clamp Connections

The muffler connects to the header with a Stainless Steel V-Band Clamp so there are no bolts to loose or gaskets to replace whenever you remove the muffler.

Does Not Work with Heater Boxes

This is a competition style exhaust that does not have connections to work with stock heater boxes or J-tubes. The 1-5/8" header connects at both the front and rear of the engine.
