    help: TT exhaust on a FWD chasis

    I've done some searching, but can't find the answer.

    Best I can tell is a few people have said that it is possible, but I tried today and can't figure out how to make it work.

    I am trying to put the oem exhaust (non active exhaust) off of my '99 VR-4 onto my '95 FWD TT.

    All of the mounting points line up, but the problem comes with the rear drivers side control arm, it is right where the exhaust wants to be.

    I can force it to fit, but doing so pushes the whole system back about an inch to far and you can not bolt it up.

    Here is where I am getting hung up.

    Basically that bent has to be in front of the control arm. Though to have everything lined up it seems to be needed right where the arm is.



    Here it is from the other angle, while I have it in front it does fit up in there.



    But it moves everything about an inch to far forward.





    Please help me to properly install it.

    -John

    I have a TT exhaust on my 95 NA, I remember we had to dent the catback exhaust with a sledge hammer to make it fit , right where the bent is on the driverside

    That is basically the only way I was seeing it being possible. But I wanted to make sure before I started going it like a spider monkey! and ruin it. haha

    Thanks Mark.

    Yup. Either dent it in or cut and weld in a new section to relocate the bend.
