Default PT Exhaust... Side or Rear

I am following the advice of the forum and removing the old leaking muffler and adding a strait pipe. The question is should it exit out the rear or the side of the coach? The rear seems to be just replacing the muffler with about 4.5' of strait pipe.

Advice?

Thanks
Kirkg

Think it will be a problem with a TOAD if it's straight back?

Good point John. While i don't have currently have a toad i will sometime. I wouldn't want to melt the bumper or cover it with ash. Do you or do you know anyone running a strait pipe on an 8v92?

I'm in the midst of putting a straight pipe out the side of my 6V92. Did not want the soot accumulating on the towed or on the back of the coach. I'd suggest running it out at 90 degrees to the side of the coach- so that it wafts into the passing airstream and stays off the coach and car.

Shane are you just putting a 90 right where the inlet to the muffler is? That seems to be the simplest but it would put the exit pipe significantly further back than the stock. I'm just trying to figure out to pieces i need to get. I lost my outlet (tail pipe) somewhere on the highway two weeks ago.

That's right. But I installed a chrome tip that extended the pipe out past the side. Just a single elbow does not extend far enough.

Sure !! We "Cat-lics" used to call that "Penance". Say a few prayers while you are under there and you'll be right with the Lord! At least it's "elective" surgery.

At the very least if you skin your knuckles no swearing.

Well the good thing is it is cold enough that i won't feel the pain until i come inside.

Another question...i thought i measured the exhaust tubing to be 6" but i am not finding it anywhere. The max i can find is 5 to 5 1/2. I can't get to the pipe to measure until the stores are closed. Anyone know?
