I removed the muffler and got rid of the over the axle portion of the exhaust. I came out the right side with a stainless tip.





As far as air filter mod, I turned mine 90 deg. when I relocated the entry. I then made a door frame to fit and modified the old battery box door for access. I no longer have to crawl under the bus to service the air filter. It improved my ground clearance, access to service the engine and gets the intake higher off the ground as well.

So what I gather from this info, I'd be best off to reroute the exhaust on my CE in front of the rear axle?

I plan on rerouting it to free up room on the back passenger side for storage. I

That's where I put mine. Comes out right in front of the driver side rear wheels. Had to go up and over the driveshaft but did not want it pointed at the curb-side camp area in case I ever want to idle the engine while parked.
