    5.3 swap meet

    Looking for ideas for a temp exhaust for my recently swapped 5.3 1990 yj, corvette manifolds to clear the motor mounts, so they sit a bit high. So I don’t want to drive without at least some sort of down pipe so I can make it to the exhaust shop. The flanges alone are around 50 bucks, just not sure what to do.

    The flanges are cheap through Amazon... I would run to your local parts store so they at least dump right near the transmission for the drive

    That would be your safest bet. I did that years ago with my ‘73 Corvette, open headers, no exhaust. AAA put it on a flat-bed, no question. I would’ve driven it, but the exhaust was coming out the headers, right into the floorboards.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
