using motorcycle exhaust on a car?

i was wondering about using a motorcycle exhaust system on my car? i got a spar one and was just curious on how it would do on a car? ive got the time and the tools to hook it up.

would it sound cool or would it sound like homer simpsons ass on a toilet? rofl

what would the gains be if any, or is this just a stupid thing to do, this just crossed my mind because i dont have much money and rather than buying a new exhaust system why not use the stuff i got.

by the way its a jbl motorcycle exhaust.

let me know what you guys think or any pointers would help.

Just when I thought you couldn't say anything stupider, you just keep talking.

Just kidding, I guess it would work if you rig it. I don't know about the sound. I can't say people wouldn't point and laugh. If you do it, let me know how it turns out. thumbsup

I'd love to hear this one, just get some extra pipe to bypass the stock muffler and make it reach the end, get a video camera or at least something to record sound, and let us hear it, i'm dying to hear the sound. As for gains i don't know if there would be much if any, depends on how big the pipe is.

sounds weird, but you should go for it if you want to...
I don't think it would perform very well though

It will work especially if it has no baffling in it and prolly sound cool but I would be very concerned about the heat its gonna generate.

Being that the exhaust was designed for a motorcycle it disperses heat by being out in the open in the free air as opposed to being under a car with less airflow.

Hmmmm... to me it sounded like the stock exhaust. Maybe little smoother. No big deal. Personally I think its stupid and it looks kinda odd.

MBRP makes exhausts for the GTS, MBRP is better known for making motorcycle/snowmobile/ATV exhausts. Stands to reason an ehxaust from a critch rocket muffler would work. just realize this:

1: bikes don't meet the same noise limitations set for cars (bikes can be louder than 85 Db)

2: the muffler will probably have more restriction than a car-specific model, but it may also deliver more torque than say, a TSRM exhaust.

Find out the piping diameter of your exhaust can, you probably want to scale up the piping so it's like 2.5- 3" pipe. Get a two bolt flange. weld it all up they way you want and bolt it in place of your stock back section. Be sure to tell us the results, as this intrigues me.
