Hey, i have a 2000 ext. cab with a 2.2l. I was thinking about cutting out about a foot of my exhaust before my muffler and moved it forwards and then removing the peice that goes over the rear axle and then just running the exhaust out right in front of the rear tire. do you guys think that would be a good idea or just a waste of my time. i figured it would reduce back pressure but not too much cause i am still running a stock exhaust.

The muffler is what causes back pressure most,not the piping. You won't gain anything if you're still using the stock muffler. Just get an exhaust shop to put something on for you.

its been done before. I recall seeing some picture of someone runing their exhaust just in front of the rear tire.

#1. its a 2.2l, removing pipe to shorten it wont do anything but cost you money.

#2 you wont gain any performance out of it, maybe 0.01% gain.. its a 2.2 its not hurting anything by leaving it stock.

#3, its a 2.2 no you cant make it sound like a cammed v8


the ONLY thing that you will gain from that, is the exhaust will be louder, if you have a turndown, as its under the bed
