Exhaust Mod????

Just curious on how its done. I am looking to buy either a 4 or 5 " mbrp system for my truck, and have seen some run it out right before the rear tire. Is this a kit, or just shortening the pipe, and adding a few new hangers. Anyone have or done this? Thanks for the info..

I have seen it done, and it's done just like you said. But the only thing to worry about and its not a big deal would be the mess of exhaust soot you would get on your rim especially if your running a tune.

Save your money on buying a kit and just buy a new Down Pipe. From there go to a truck shop and get some 4" or 5" pipe with a reducer to connect to your down pipe. Then get a 45* or a 90* bend and run it out in front of your tire. It's pretty easy, and you can do it for a fraction of the cost of buying a kit and modifing it.

I had mine cut up from my stock unit. Loved it as far as the sound but it was way to aggravating having to clean soot off the wheel all the time. Taylor (taylorking) has no trouble out of his IIRC.

Actually seen a truck the other day that was using 4" flexi-exhaust ducting all the way thru...must have been using his orig downpipe with an adapter to the 4" flexi---and the rest is a no brainer...pretty slick and easy if you ask me.
