Default Exhaust help...please

Need your help guys. I have an Ofna Hyper 7, I installed a Dynamite .21 and a Dynamite 086 pipe. The problem is with the pipe, the header has a tight curve in it, and with the pipe attached, the pipe sits against the fuel tank, also the pipe itself is alot shorter than the original pipe that came with the car, and I cant get the original exhaust support to fit it. Is there another pipe that will fit the Hyper buggy, or a different header I can use. I am at a loss here, need your help

take an metal coat hanger and cut a section out of it and bend it to the right length and bend it to fit the pipe. with it longer you can make it so it pushes the pipe a few millimeters away from the tank. i do this with all of my buggies and truggies because i can make them at the perfect length and they give some on a hard hit. works great for me.

I take two socket extensions and spread the header apart to pull the pipe away from the tank. Careful it doesn't take much to move.

Coat hangers always have to much give for me. I just like using the stock pipe mount.

Default Bend the header

I use a big screwdriver and hold the engine side with my hand. It will bend just enough to clear the tank and the gmk thing is cool too do both...

just slide a spring or a plastic hose inside the header and bend it open a tad.

Thanks for the replies! I opened up the bend, and got a exhaust mount like you suggested, remounted pipe and all is well. Thanks again for your help gentlemen!!

You want to be careful though you dont want to pull the pipe out to far to where you have a small gap in the header/midpipe gasket. I racked my brain for hours on end as to why my motor would not take a tune and come to find out it was something as simple as this!
