Side exit exhaust

ok the past couple days ive been thinking about running my exhaust in front of my passager tire, i have a flowmaster 40 series s/in dual/out, i went back to the place that put my muffler on and they said for $100 they would move the muffler forward replace the pipe between the cat and muffler and add 2 3inch tips out infront of the passenger tire, so my question is, is it a good look and good price. Pics would be helpful if possible

thanks

i did mine myself and it cost me about $40....including the muffler (Raptor cheepy) flowmaster is in the works
it sounds like a Euro sports car....not really loud until you get on it but i want a little more rumble

I'd go with smaller tips. I have a single 3.5" tip and it's just perfect. I couldn't imagine bigger especially 2 of them

my idea for the tips was that they would be as flush with the side as possible but angled, if you get what im saying and before i get them installed i would get him to hold 2 tips up to see if thats what i want

My only complaint is that it is hard to keep clean, road tar is tough to get off.

well ive changed my mind, it was the cost that did, i found someplace that will replace the pipe inbetween the cat and muffler and add 2 tail pipes out the back for a amazing price of $140 including tax with everything, pipe hangers etc but the thing is i called another place around me he wanted $225 and i thought man thats too much

yes shortening the pipe does change it, mayb not power but if there is no muffler and just straight out the side sounds worse then just a muffler bypass which is what i have
