my muffler isnt placed vertically its done horizontally, none of that really matters just look at the curvature of the pipes on a diagram and do it that way, i mean it really doesnt matter what the muffler looks like, just have them fit it all together, trust me they will figure it all out if they are a good shop

Pay a visit to an exhaust shop. Tell them what you want, they will know exactly what you need. A good shop can put it exiting anywhere you want it.

Alot of mufflers, such as Flowmaster and my Borla won't mount horizontally, there isn't room between the driveshaft and the frame.

A shop can tell you EXACTLY what you need to buy, what they need to install it, and I'm sure they could get everything for you if you wanted.

in order to register your vechical in northern va (or counties closest to dc), you have to get an emissions test unless you have your car registered as an antique (25 years and older) or as a truck (GVW over 10,000lbs)
