Default Exhaust Question...can this be done?

So I'm going to be doing a full exhaust system this summer. Shorties, new down pipes with y pipe into a fake cat (yaaa cat-less) then to a si/do flowsound/flowmaster single chamber super 10. All 2 1/2 inch pipe. Now heres were it gets iffy. My orginal plan was to go straight out the back with 4" slash cut tips on each side of my hitch. But I was woundering if it's possible to got out at a 45 degree angle infront of the rear tires with the tips but on both sides of the truck. I've seen them both go out the passanger side and I don't like that look. Then I realized they don't sell kits like that because the gas tank is in the way on the driver side. So can it be done or not at all becuase of the tank is in the way? Call me crazy and I know I sound like a noob right now but the question has been bothering me haha.

can't be done. personally i like the 1 pipe out the passenger side of a truck in front of the rear tires. i am planing on building a custom muffler for my 93 so that i can actually exit the exhaust in front of the rear axle on it which is a bit difficult with how short the wheel base is.

Ok thats what I thought. But I mean standard cab short bed with a super 10 with duals out the back...that should still be pretty loud and sound good.

i guess as long as you don't mind paying for something that looks good and does not really benefit the truck performance wise. i am too cheap to waste money running pipe past the rear axle.

Dump the exhaust right before the cat, it will be LOUD. I had to drive around that way for a couple of weeks...

Yes it does. But it would achieve maximum loudness (besides running no exhaust at all)

Yes, yes it does.

Every single truck I hear with an exhaust, I can tell if it's dumped or not.

Haha ya not dumpin it, I want it to sound good with a nice deep tone. Not raspy and soundin like its got a hole in the muffler haha. The setup on it now is stock with a glasspack and a turn down right after the cat. It all ends at the back of the cab. It sounds ok but it's gonna sound soooo much better when I'm done. Prob get some low end back pressure back too.

It will likely sound nice if you run 2.5 in pipe all the way to the back. Otherwise, like I said, it'll sound like ***.

Yup I'm runnin 2.5 inch pipe all the way. So shorites will let it flow better and give it some tone. New down pipes will let it flow better. Y pipe and fake cat will deffinitly open it up. And the Super 10 will give it a nice deep tone and give the system a lil back pressure for low end. Am I right? Oh and I'm doin CAI. So air will go in easy and come out easy haha.

Oh and I forgot, do you think with a straight through/catless set up it will sound kinda crappy and raspy then it would with a hi flow cat. Becuase I've herd the hi flows deepin the tone.

The reason the high flow cats deepen tone compared to the gutted cat is because the exhaust doesn't bounce around and resonate within the casing. You could weld a pipe into the "stock" cat and it would have a similar effect to a cat as it won't resonate quite as bad. The way I look at it, go with the fake cat, then if it sounds like ***, weld in an actual cat. Better for your lungs anyhow. lol

Ah I see what you are saying. I'm not going gutted cat. Im selling my stock one. Then since I'm doing 2.5 inch pipe, I'm buying a generic 2.25 inch straight through cat, sliding my 2.5 inch pipe through it, drilling a hole for the o2, then weliding the pipe to the cat. So it will be catless straight through, So with non fouler it wont throw codes, and when I go for e check and they mirrior it they see a cat but its not hahaha.
