Center in/Dual out muffler.......any one running a center in muff?

Hey.

Redoing the exhaust.....getting antsy and gotta order the muff. Exhaust shop said they can handle the differnet sized holes for the in/out of the muff vs. the piping i want to run.

I know we're supposed to run a offset in/center out muff....but do we have the room for a center in muff? Anyone run a center in muff?

I've searched through 6 pages of exhaust pics/threads.

Thanks.

Shane

I'm not sure about the center muff, never seen anyone run one. But does the muff come in a "box"?

The Bassani exhaust is center in center out, but the muffler lays flat instead of verticle.

What type of muffler are you going to run and what kind of sound are you expecting.

why would a center-in or an offset-in really make that much of a difference where someone said you couldn't run a center-in?

a dual out muffler will have alot of resonance over a single out muffler. if you dont want resonance, run a single out muffler with a y-pipe after for your dual tailpipes. if you run a canter inlet, you may want to mount it vertically to keep it out of the way of the driveshaft aswell

already got my muff.....3" side/dual 2.5" out...... will run short 12" pipes exiting and they'll be dumped for the time being.

I'm headed over to my buddy's uncles exhaust shop.....see what he'll do for me. rear cat delete pipe, muff and new pipes installed, dumped before the hitch...unseen from the outside. Will be doing 2.5" pipe in/2" dual pipe out.

is the rear cat delete pipe safe? why wouldn't it be? if i throw a code for the oxygen sensor, oh well. I'll have my rogue or bama tune delete that, i know bamachips deletes that o2 sensor.
