weird exhaust?

ok so i asked this quesiton in another thread, but im waiting until after this weekend when 3" bl will be put on. Ordered super 44 single in dual out. Going to run one pipe out back with tip, and dump the other pipe right behind the rear axle. Im thinking that i will get some throat from the pipe, and some sound from the dump. What do you guys think?

I think it'll sound like a twin engine aircraft from the inside....crazy drones and just plain odd sounding. Don't get me started on looks....


Either/or dude....dump, or pipes. Choose one. I've said it before and I'll say it again...I freakin' love the way mine sounds with tailpipes. I can actually turn my radio down and talk on the phone, yet it's loud enough to be pretty noticeable on the inside. On the outside, it sounds amazing when someone else is driving and I'm just standing there drooling at my sexy ***, sexy sounding truck.

so i wont lack in performance if i dump both pipes behind the rear axle? Mine is dumped right now right after muffler, and i can feel that i lost some of my low end torque (probably in my head). I guess it boils down to personal preference and i wont know what i like until i try it. I just like to hear everybody's opinion hehe.

Also, you've also talked about "gutting your last cat". Is that legal? What kind of inspection issues will arise with a gutted cat.

i went dual out the rear with my flowmaster 44...straight out, then i had them turned and dumped down on eash side behind my tire and i got a huge difference in deepness of sound. sounds WAY WAY better. amazing how two angles can change the sound so dramatically

I live in a non-gay state....we don't have yearly inspections and they don't even take a mirror to the underside when we go every 2 years when they just plug into the truck and see if i'm throwing any codes. Why does it matter...the cat is gutted, the cat case is still there, they can't tell. I've got 3 more cats anyways. lol.

where your exhaust ends, is irrellivent to performance, the factors that are in play, is ballance between banks, which is making sure the length of the pipes from each side of the motor are the proper length, so that they don't clash when the 2 pipes meet... you don't have to worry about this, as yours meet up at the front, and you aren't changing that... the next is how it exits, same basic idea, length of pipe, there are theories that if a poof of exhaust reaches the tip of the pipe at the exact moment that another exhaust valve opens, it will give you better performance... i personally feel this is about as accurate as the tornado's claims... the last one, which is the big one, is your back pressure... this is the biggest difference, performance wise, between dumped and tail pipes, even though, that extra length of pipe to get it past the bumper,doesn't make much difference, especially seeing as your cats, muffler and size of pipe make a much larger impact on your backpressure... and once you are past muffler, if you continue to run the same size pipe, it's not going to boost or drop your back pressure, it's pretty well determined by the time it comes out of the muffler... (unless you have a pinched pipe or small diameter tips or something restricting it after the muffler)

so what it boils down to, the difference is 99% sound... personally, i don't like droning in the vehicle... i had a 5L mustang (have i should say, as i still have it, just don't drive it) with the pipes cut under the front seats, and the rest of the exhaust removed... sounded pretty good... a little raspy, WOT sounded SICK, to me, to people out of the car... but driving down the hiway for more than an hour or so sucked *****! if i want to hear my car, i'll put the windows down from now on...
