5.0 exhaust

Hey yall
So in the upcoming months I'm probably gonna be putting exhaust on my 5.0
I was given the idea a while back about putting the nascar pipes that run out the sides... on my car. Anyways, just wondering how feasable this is, and if not I'd like yall's opinion on the turndowns...I heard they sound AWESOME on 302's...

Lightning exhaust is out the side. But i'm sure it being a truck exhaust, is much different.

I haven't done it yet, but on my 393, I'm going to run the exhaust out the side right in front of the rear wheel on each side, using some oval tubing so I won't have ground clearance problems. I'll be using a mid-mounted DIDO magnaflow muffler, and then from there, I'll probably do a 45 degree bend, then transition to the oval pipe, then out the side in front of the wheel. You can get the oval tubing at http://www.drgas.com/store/home.php?cat=8

I'll probably be doing that in a few weeks. I blew all my cash on other stuff on the car, then christmas, so I have to pay down a few bills, then once I have the cash I'll order up the pipes and some pre-mandrel bent tube, and I'll get it all welded up. I'll definitely post pics up once it is done.

Why must you do thing's the hard way.

In New Jersey The exhaust has to exit the at least 1 inch beyond any window that opens and exit from under the vehicle.

But I just cant see you taking the family on a nice relaxing road trip in that bird.

Try and talk with quick35th. He's got the NASCAR style exhaust on his 5.0L Race car.

It only exits on one side of the car and he's running open headers as well, but you can get the NASCAR style exhaust.

It being lowered is why I'm going with the oval tubing. For ovaled 3" tubing, it is only 2.25" thick, plus with it being right in front of the rear wheels, I think I'll be OK. Does your welder just plug into a normal outlet? If so, we could do it at the shop so we would actually have a lift to work on, instead of laying on a creeper.

As for dumping under the front seats, that's all well and good for your car, but I want to be able to take this car on 500+ mile drives without hating my life. It will be loud enough with the dual 3" exhaust, 1-3/4 long-tube headers, and magnaflow DIDO "muffler". Dumping it under the seats would probably vibrate enough to drive me nuts.

dr gas sells boom tubes. Another easy way will be to ditch the gas tank for a fuel cell in the trunk then you will have alot of room to work with

DAMN....ok thats hot. i love that....quick35th was telling me that when doing the exhaust he has, i might run into some problems about the shops refusing to do it, because they'll have to create a heat sheild for the gas tank...and they wont wanna risk it.

does this kind have any issues like that?

There is no fuel tank issues because it uses a fuel cell in the trunk. Lots of work.

Then requires a lot of work doing the work to route the exhaust through the sides.

Not the ideal thing for a daily driver, but great for a weekend car.

I'm running the stock fuel tank on my car, no clearance issues at all. I went to Jegs and got this sick on heat shield stuff that came in a roll. I just plastered the stuff up on the bottom of the fuel tank where the exhaust gets close to it.

I was really happy that I did not have to go with a fuel cell with my setup, saved me big money.
