Post Cheap temporary exhaust system

I need to know what the cheapest way to hook up an exhaust system is. I have had my motor like sitting in my car fior a year now, and after i get the radiator i will have everything i need to start it minus the exhaust, which is gonna cost me 300 bucks cause i m getting lake pipes. ANyway i just need somethign temporary. Could i jsut hook some pipes up to the collecotrs and run em out to the side or somethign without mufflers?

Also, when i do get my lake pipes, i m gettign them from summit (i think it might be jegs). I m gettign the 72" ones. How would i rout the exhaust to mate up with the lake pipes. Do i go under the frame, or do i cut out a hoel in the frame? THe frame is kinda low and i m afraid if i go under it might be scraping all teh time. Also, how am i gonna fit a muffler into this lake pipe set-up? Ther isn't much space to do so if i take teh shortest path from the headers to teh lake pipes, especialy if it has to curve a lot and go under teh frame.

ANy help or info on anything that woudl help me with this woudl be great. I also need good muffler suggestions. I want something that sounds rough as hell at idle, and stil sounds bad *** while cruising, but not to an annoying level

Lakes pipes are seldonm the only exhaust system on the car. Most cars I have seen with lakes pipes have a standard exhaust system and the pipes are "Yed" in before the mufflers.Un cork the pipes to let the exhaust breath free. Many times lakes pipes are also installed for looks only and do nothing else. I would not cut the frame for the exhaust unless you are an experienced fabricator or a mechanical engineer and are certain the car will not fold at that point. I think pasing them over the frame rail before the fire wall could be a solution to your problem but I do not think you will be able to install a muffler before the pipe.

You could check out Flowmaster's website to hear some of their mufflers on different cars. The sound quality isn't the greatest, but at least it gives you an idea.

I agree most like pipes are not hooked up. I dont know what car you have but dont cut the frame.Hey if you leave them as dummys your wife/girl friend wont burn her leg on them when she gets out.Some guys just put them in as far forward in the kick up of the frame but you have to becarefull about steering links and such.
