Lotus Elan

Right Angled Tailpipe?

PostPost by: david.g.chapman » Sat Aug 11, 2018 10:43 am

I am always having to clean exhaust dirt off the back of my yellow +2. My 2.5 inch tailpipe sticks out about 3 inches beyond the rear bumper, but the Kamm tail of the +2 just sucks the gases back against the rear of the car. I would not be surprised if the Elan was the same.

The mixture is OK - not too rich.

Has anyone tried a right-angled extension on their tailpipe pointing downwards? I have a feeling that it won't make any difference, but you never know....
