weld-on muffler inlet/outlet

i didn't get any input in the general auto. section so maybe you gen1 guys can share your thoughts with me.

i'm curious as to why guys are using mufflers with center inlet/offset outlet when the stock muffler is center/center. i would think it would make more sense to use a center/center when welding in a new muffler. am i missing something here? i know any exhaust shop can make any configuration work, but....

input please. i've got something in the works for the tacoma guys. any feedback is appreciated, thanks.

Go with your gut.
thanks for the input. i wonder if anyone else knows why they chose offset/center.

I ordered a Gibson 55122s (cent/off) at first accidentally instead of the 55112s (cent/cent) - had a few beers before clicking "Order"... may have explained the confusion.

So then i ordered the 55112s

I showed up to the muffler shop with both, told them to pick the right one for the install job and i'll return the other. They installed center/offset 'vertically.' the lower corner of the can hangs down below the frame by about 2 inchs - not too happy. Should've just given them the center/center and been done with it.

Still need to fix it, but I have other more important things on the list.

i notice that a lot of times the mufflers are welded at an angle or like DblCabMN's truck vertically which will work fine, but it's not the best look imo. plus in some cases, you lose clearance in that area.

I had my shop weld on a Magnaflow 18" muffler. The guy chose an offset in/center out. It sits "vertical" also but doesn't hang down too low, I'd say its even w/ the frame. I don't know why they chose to install that particular muffler (they had numerous in stock) mayb it had something to do w/ the bends they had to do for me and where the stock piping was..IDK
