Jaguar XJ6 Series III with 96 impala LT1... exhaust help?
I just bought some Borla Pro XS mufflers for my 1984 Jaguar XJ6 w/ 96 LT1. I have the downpipes constructed from the headers (corvette rams horns), and i'm wondering what would be the best way to run the pipe after the mufflers...

in a jaguar xj6, there is a complex IRS, called "the cage". The stock jaguar muffler pipes are curved and go up and through the cage, and curve back down to go through the resonators located in the rear valance panels.

I took the old resonators off when i refurbished the gas tanks this last week...

i don't know if anyone else on this site has tried a jag xj6 chevy 350 swap, but if they did, any help on how they routed their exhaust would be most helpful -- if i go under the cage, i'm afraid of rattle, and how to fit it through the valance, and if i go up and through the cage i'm afraid it will be restrictive of my flow...

I haven't heard from Jag Daddy for a while, but he put a 400 in a '76 XJ6. Might see if you can raise him and see how he did his. Might see if his photo album has anything also.

Bradykat is also doing a similar project.
