Default Side exit exhaust pipes?

Ok I was pondering this the other day. I want to have side exit exhaust pipes that come out right before the rear tires. I want to do this so I could hear the exhaust better. But what would I do as far as a muffler? I could put a glasspack in the middle where the stock resonator would be. My only other concerns would be as would tyhe exhast hang to low since I'm already lowered and come very close to scrapping on speed bumps. And the other issue would be if it would pass emisions(which I kinda have covered already).

NASCAR cars have em...
Since you're in North Carolina, it shouldn't be too hard to find some NASCAR oriented race fabricators to help you out.

Had em on my legacy. Ran a glass pack, then a flow master splitter, then exits on both sides of the car. Wouldn't recomend it, unless you run it the way its done on the roush mustang, all the way back and then uturn to come back with a full muffler. With glass packs only... When you shut off your motor, you aren't leaving any heat to cool the valve train right. You will bend and break expensive little components in your heads.

the problem that you have that nascar doesn't....is that nascar doesn't need mufflers, or emmissions or anything, and they're car isn't as much a 'car' as yours is, they could run it through anywhere they want the frame is NOT the unibody that you have, and it is much easier to fab something like that

NASCAR also runs flat pipes, oval shaped, so they sit up closer to the under body.

I know Flowmaster makes shorter pipes and mufflers for the NASCAR style stuff.... I would have to advise against this though seeing as to how every review of the Rousch Mustang complains about bottoming the tips out on almost anything....

if loud is what you want get a 2.5" non resonated exhaust with straight flow through muffler. thats what i have and let me tell you its really loud. can hear your car really good . if thats not loud enough for you get borla headers with random tech cat. that will for sure be freaking loud.

I was measured how loud the exhaust I have know once and just blipping the trottle to redline measured 110dbs on a decibal meter. I think my exhaust is already loud but I do want louder and I want side pipes for some reason

ImprezedRS you drive a automatic too? cool. so i'm not the only one. i don't know if you would want to put a side pipe on because it will rub on speed bumps alot. it will also bump up against the sideskirts and if you have them painted it could burn the paint off. if you can think of something to keep it from hitting the sideskirt/ground i bet a side exhaust setup would sound unique.

Well the back bumper is made out of the same plstic as the side skirts and is painted with same paint, paint on bumper is still good and bumper not melted so why should the side skirts? As far as hitting on speed bumps, I'm not sure about that. I lust love the sound of a car with side pipes and having the windows down.

You should have no problems with emisions. You will still be single exhaust, it'll just split to two pipes. You'll have a problem when you switch a single exhaust system to daul. They make mufflers with one intake and two outputs. I think Flowmaster has one.

The car pictured is on the scoobynet BBS and he had the pipes done custom. That's all I know.

Default ..been thinking about this too

After crawling under the WRX for a while I wondered WHY the exhaust system has to go all of the way to the back of the car.
Just because it has always been done that way is not a good enough reason. The exhaust tubing crosses from side to side, and squeezes by the rear skidplate. The muffler piece alone weighs a ton. Why not release the exhaust gasses to the airstream and let them find their own damn way to the back of the car?

I would just like a single exhaust that exits ahead of the right rear wheel (that shoots flames hehe). It appears that there might be room for a small muffler behind the right front wheel, below the passengers feet. This would not be as good as putting one just after the downpipe, though. That way new heat shielding would only have to be added from the muffler to the exhaust tip.

I'd love to get rid of the heavy stock muffler. Stock heat shielding above the stock muffler could then be removed. Gas tank shielding might be removable too.

Please excuse me for posting in the NA forum.
