Exhaust thru the front Fender, Opinions

Ok so has anyone done this before, this is just mock up, but I really don't want the typical ex

haust out the back or out the running boards, this seems to be a cool rat rod look, the "pipe" is a little long on this mock up, maybe an inch shorter, with a billet aluminum outer ring with button heads?

If you like it then maybe with electric cutouts for parking lot fun, but no way for regular driving. And no way at all if you are running a stock cam.

I have seen front exit exhaust on a twin turbo Camaro but since you are asking our opinion I will say no. Then again it is your truck. Its all good.

Someone is real likely to get burned on that. Not sure why you'd want to follow the "rat rod trend".

They do that on "Street Outaws" TV show but they are also trailered 2000HP cars. That will be incredibly loud no matter what engine you run. No way I could get by with running on the street around here even if I wanted to. It would look at home on the dragstrip but nowhere else IMO.

Maybe some pipes exiting the rear of the running board as a street compromise of your idea?

rdemilt is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Ive seen other posts with pictures of the truck, its coming along nicely.
I also agree with the others, don't do it.

I say don't do it but I am such a stocker that I didn't even put a passenger side sun-visor in my truck!

I think straight out the hood like the beasts in the tractor pulls. JK.

I think it looks kind of bad ***. Not sure how it would work out in actual use though.

That setup looks very aggressive but there are some very serious issues with it...first, if you pull up next to another truck/car you will be blasting them with your exhaust. Second, do you REALLY want to have that much noise so close to your door window when you are cruising down the road?
Here is what I consider to be a better solution, it keeps the noise behind the cab and the exhaust lower to the road...

You need some snakey fender-well headers to go with it. It would be bad *** but, obnoxious as hell.

The only opinion that matters is yours. If you were going to go that route I'd say to run your exhaust into a muffler and back up to the frender exit. Otherwise like many mentioned, too loud. You could use a muffler like...




I built a motorcycle with a front exit exhaust with a muffler style like that. It was a pain keeping it clean as the soot got everywhere. I also noticed it wasn't much fun being behind the exhaust for long. You notice what you don't with the exhaust out the back, the smell. Gets old fast.

Overly loud and those nasty exhaust fumes, the ones that kill you, will wafer up and in the cab waiting in traffic, stop lights, and the local cruses
