Default Exhaust

OK, I was wondering if anyone has ran their exhaust out on the side in front of the rear tires? You know how the 97s and so on where from the factory, just this would be dual exhaust instead of just the passenger side.

I want to, but the gas tank and drive shaft are in the way. Unless you ran it outside the drivers side frame rail, but you would have to run it under the frame somewhere, and it would hang down quite a bit.

I do have pictures of my set-up running out the side if you are interested.

mine would have been that way too, but the pipe we had when we cut out my muffler was 2 inches to short, so we just fabed it up to come out the side, lol

I like it and it's louder.


and btw, my friend has a mustang, not the brand new body style, but the one before that, and he ran 4 inch from the cats back, and it is SOOOOOO loud.

I want 4 inch pipe now, lol

How about from the cats, you angle the pipe into your step rails if you got them?? then all you have to do is cut the end off the rails.. no one else has done this that i know of... i know that the step rails will be long enough for a screw or s.cab f150, all you have to do is feed the pipe into about 4 inches from the end of the rail, and then chop the end off .. will be real loud, and it will be a custom look on those real cold days when the exhaust is just drifting out and looks like a stephen king novel .. i dunno ... just an idea ... now im wondering if that will work?!?!?

You want lake pipes, they used to do it all the time on old hotrods. Just google lake pipes if you want to see some pictures.

Your steps would melt your shoes, and I dont think that they are heat treated, so the chrome wouldnt stand up to good unless they were stainless.

good idea, buy you would be better off just running some pipe insted of getting steps on the first place.

well i believe my steps are stainless steel, i dont care that much for the look of chrome, unless its on a vehicle thats for show purposes only, and not for daily driving. and i like my straight piped duals, it has the right amount of grumble for what i wanted. i was just throwing it out there for an idea for what the other guy was wanting to do.

and i did do a seach about them, but i didnt see anything for a truck, just the older hotrods, from 40s to late 70s model coupes and such ... but thats how i came up with the thought for a truck ..
