Title: 1978 VW Bus Exhaust System
Post by: Anonymous on May 11, 2005, 11:09:15 PM
Hi, <br>     I am new to LiMBO.  I have owned a 1978 VW Bus for about 4 years now and have restored it as needed.  I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get all the parts I need to rebuild the exhaust system as well as someone who will do it.  The bus is in very good shape but is very noisy.  Thanks for any help.<br>Steve

Since your bus is a 78 it most likely has the fuel injected style Exhaust.  Most of those pipes are obsolete.  My suggestion would be is to find a set of pre 72-74 heater boxes.  They may be easier to find.  Plus it has alot less parts to leak and rust.  I like the look of them and I used to use a cool looking dual quiet pack muffer that sounded aesome.   Good luck.
