40 series question

does it matter on the muffler where the inlets and outlets are located? i am planning on buying a 40 series online and having a friend weld it together for me and i want to order the right one. and also reading past threads it sounds as if i am better off leaving the cat on with my 2.3? i plan on running now cat(i guess) with a 2.25 inlet and outlet 40 series into a tip sticking out in front of my passenger side tire (so i dont have to deal with axle bending issues) how does this sound to anyone ,any info appreciated. thanks
