Default Exhaust

Hi, I broke one of my exhaust tips of backing into a snowbanks and am planning on replacing it. I have one concern.

I have my back window down often and I have problem with a lot of exhaust fumes getting in the car. I was thinking of having them come straight back but I figure that would cause even more problems.

Are there any recommendations on how to route it? I have access to a pipe bender so its not a problem bending the pipes.

Thanks

get the pipes that come out of the sides either in front or behind the rear tires depending on what you like better

Previously I've had both pipes going out behind the tire(that's stock), I might try in front but I have a step up I might have to modify.

you could always go with a dual pipe cat back system

What do you mean? I have a diesel truck so there is no cat, and it is two pipes one on either side.

ohhh ok I didn't know it was a diesel. the cheap way to to it I guess if you don't want to buy the whole exhaust system is to just go to the local pep boys or whatever and buy a new angled pipe and have it come out the side to where you want it and clamp it down. then all of your black smoke will go out the side instead of in through your back window
