Straight pipe muffler install

Well, I cut off my glasspack and left the cats, and put a straight pipe on and angled the exhaust right in front of the rear wheel. Sounds sweet and is not too loud.

Re: Straight pipe muffler install

Hey, I dont know if that's legal! I've run mine that way for several years. Less weight and it's out of the way! Doubters say, "I've heard that you can get carbon monoxide poisoning that way". When I have my top on I have not noticed any problem. It is well sealed at the back. Without the top you will get some exhaust anyway. I know that sitting in city traffic is worse than me sitting in my bronc out somehwere. The other problem I heard could be heating-up the rear axel. Also not a problem if you put the proper downturn on it. I did notice a little more noise since it is terminated under the vehicle. This is a good mod for you Norm. I think you mentioned bent or smashed exhaust in your last post.

Mine just dumps out around the rear axle, works fine for several years now.

If you can find a way "around" that second cat you can gain a good bit of clearance too

Re: Straight pipe muffler install

I'm going to get mine to come out high in front of the rear shackle now that I finally cut the sheet metal there. It gets it out of the way of the rocks. I think Shane is saying he has the pipe bent to have the exhaust come out to the front of the wheelwell. It's a cool prerunner setup (hell, its just plain cool!) but I want to use the location I just supplied for the protection against rocks it provides.

Re: Straight pipe muffler install

I still need to put a tip on, so it does sit under the truck a bit. I don't have it anywhere close to the axle or tire. It's kinda funny, everybody racing me now.
