Yet another idea, side exit

Out of the many ideas I have for my budget do-it-myself exhaust I have one more idea: remove third cat, weld up some type of DI/DO muffler in its place and then after the muffler just have a 90* bend right out to both sides of the car.
I'm thinking 2.25 tubing. Will i still have decent ground clearance? Any other issues like heat from the pipes bothering anything?
TIA

Thanks, I saw this thread but it really didn't help me much. I don't plan on going through the rockers.

If your car is lowered, you will probably drag the pipes a lot.. I dont think heat would bother anything, especially if you keep the main cats.

Wes, I thought that cats would create more heat within the pipes (more restriction/slower moving exhaust). I figured a free flowing exhaust would keep everything cooler (gases exiting quicker/more efficient)??

I'd like to see this too... I need to find a way to mod the exhaust without it costing $1200 for true duals right to the rear bumper. I wouldn't mind a site exit like the Cobra R Mustang

I'm pretty sure cats absorb heat..

I had cats on mine for a while, and i could drive around for a while and still be able to grab the tail pipe... Now without cats, i drive around for very little time and the pipes are too hot to grab..

OK, Here's The Pics Of My Exhaust...

OK guys, sorry it took me a while to get back to this. There was some real-world things happening with the T-Bird that had to be taken care of (bushings and suspension), but all is well now. OK here's two pics of my exhaust...

The side-outs make my car kind of look like a comical wannabe hot rod - hey wait a minute, that's what it is (except it blows doors off lots of mustangs...) I wanted them to look obnoxious to bait people into racing - boy do I get my moneys worth on that one. Everyone revs next to me. BMW's always try to take me off the line, but they suck.

Some people dig it and othersjust kinda ask "hey do those things work?"

They work, true duals, no sweat, mildly ugly in a kinda cool kinda way. They also double as curb feelers sometimes.

those look pretty good but I was hoping for pics of side exit underneath the door or somewhere around there.

that is the prettiest exhaust i have ever seen... I will say it everytime I freakin see that car... I love the exhaust. If I had the money to move my fuel tank into the trunk I would do that crap..

u guys think it would be too much drone if you had 2 glasspacks and dump each one right in front of the rear tires on each side? as supposed to piping them all the way out the back?

Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but how close are the pipes to the gas tank? That's the setup I was thinking about doing but I'm scared of it being too close to the tank and I also fear not being able to drive over speed bumps...

Judging by the drag slicks and big *** engine I would say VERY FAR AWAY... the gas tank was removed and put in the trunk most likely. Along with the battery. You want more weight on the rear tires when drag racing. Side exits aren't really possible unless you remove the gas tank otherwise you'll be scraping the ground with the pipes or mufflers. just not any room there.
