Side exhaust...

So I am planning on putting side exhausts on my 1999 Mustang v6 5-speed, instead of having the stock exhaust hiding under the bumper. I would have a glasspack instead of a muffler(no muffler), what is your guys opinion on this? Because with the muffler it would probably scratch a lot, that's what the guy in a shop that I spoke with said. I spoke with a shop and they said it would be $500 and he would fix the exhaust leak(passenger side). Is there anything I can do to prevent the exhaust leak in the future since it's near the a/c. Tips? Advice?

Yea I have, I just wanted to hear some people's opinion on side exhaust, I am not neccessarly talking about the sound but more like benefits from the stock one, and any cons to having a side exhaust instead of the ones going to the back. So there is a way to get side exhaust without it being annoying loud right?

Re: Side exhaust...

you will hate it :/

well at least i did lol...unless you have proper side exhaust skirts you will ding that tubing on everything stock ride height lol. It was too poppy as well for me...here's a clip of it. i had it like this for maybe a month or so then went back to tubing out the back



as for glasspacks....not a big fan but if you're dead set on running a side setup without buying the proper mufflers they'll have to do

Cons just its right there next to your ear, uuuhh yeah? Wouldn't really know on the annoying loud part. What size do you want the exit pipe after the glass packs?

that's what i'm saying...unless you buy the skirts made for side exhausts you will scrape everything lol...i know i had to have my hanger re-welded up 2 times during my short time running them lol. thank god im running stock height or else i'd never get in and out of the stores in my town.

if you really want side exhausts look into buying these...if not i just wish you all the luck man

So if get them in the running to the back I shouldnt experience any scratching right? And if they go to the back, h-pipe or divorced duals are better for performance, and about how much should it cost estimated or about how much did u guys pay?

A friend payed 350 from muffler back, with flows and new pipes chrome tips and what not.
I dislike not having personal experience with prices but the babes was already exhausted and the truck I had gotten from my brother some time back he had already done it

Just get the side skirts. This is what I have on mine and I love it, and IMO I think it's the best and simplest set up- I got dynomax exhausts with the "in" and "out" (don't know how else to explain it lol) on the same side. On the in-part of the muffler I have it Hooked up to the x-pipe, and obviously the out-pipe is hooked up to the side exit pipe and a tip on the side of it. It sounds great and I love how it sounds in tunnels and stuff.

I don't know if all this is unclear but I'll try to get some pictures tomorrow.

Is this on a v8 or v6? If on a v8 yes a side setup would sound great.

At op you asked on performance. To be honest just about all an exhaust is on a sixxer is a sound upgrade. If you want louder go divorced .....if you want deeper look into an h pipe or prochamber...if you like rasph and poppy the an x pipe.

You don't want them. They're too low and lots of maintenance and repairs
