Just an idea/suggestion

This may or may not have been brought up B4 so I'm just gonna say it. Was flipping through MOTOR, saw an M3 and thought "wouldn't that quad exhaust setup make the new AV T-series look that much more exciting"?? Could Tickford do this just to have that little bit extra in style?

It all depends on the way the fuel tank is setup in the AV, at the moment you can't run dual exhausts as it will not pass ADR's the way the tank is, I am under the impression the tank will be changed for the AV to a US friendly design, so it may be possible, I am not sure.

I had been wondering why we never see twin pipes, thanks for clearing that up.

I notice however that there are lots of holden and ford v8 utes flying around with twin exhausts, which is good, not from the factory though, but i guess the fuel tanks in a different spot on utes.

More than anything, I rekon that a twin pipe setup on the AU2 series cars, xr and T series, would have been the final touch!

Vote 1 - dual exhaust on V8s

The AV fuel was going to be a saddle type tank under the rear seat. That was the original design intent, not sure where it went from there, but I suppose we will know soon
