Erm the more I look into it, the more I think I like your idea of angling it out in front of the rear wheels. Maybe even pointing down toward the road? Seems simpler and it should alleviate the problem of the soot on our toad, without some elaborate stack.

Just wish I had room for that air cleaner. I am trying to build a slightly smaller version as we speak.

i wouldn't mind a smaller version also... mine is oil bath system built of parts from trucks built in the 60's and 70's (what i had laying around).. a few modern up-dates (dry element sir filter) would be nice

I've got an air filter that came off one of our big compressors at work......yours if you can use it. It's about 12-14" diameter and the same in height. It's heavy duty....weighs about 10 pounds. I was going to make a lamp out of it, but it's really too heavy for that.

The stacks are cool looking, but extending a stack out the back of a front engine bus is adding more back pressure purely for looks. As in, it serves little purpose.



As was mentioned, the exhaust routing over the rear axles is usually a mess. All those bends increase resistance and gather heat. Top that off with road spray and that's where rust holes are likely to form. Exiting before the rear axle is about as direct an exhaust route as you could practically hope for on a front engine bus.

The front-engine exception is Whiskey Runner's badass bus That one is nice because it has the space up front to run a stack without having it stick out the side and block the mirrors.
