K, I admit it, I'm a noob. Explain dumps to me please?

In the quest to make my car look more like a v6, I was thinking with dumps, I might be able to get a v6 bumper. Don't know anything about them, tho. Will it affect performance? And how would if affect the sound (I've got on o/r h and Flowmaster 40's).

Sorry for being an idiot, and thanks for any answers...
:)

Dumps are just short tail pipes that end usually imediately after the muffler and "dump" under the car rather then exit out the side or rear which is required to pass inspection. Dumps will add some sound and makes the rear look cleaner on some cars by eliminating the tail pipes.

Dumps make a TERRIBLE drone on the highway, no matter what your exhaust setup is. Unless you cruise down the highway at 3K+ rpm, especially in a 4.6 litre, go ahead and take about 4 aspirin and buy a good set of ear muffs before you go anywhere more than 5 minutes away.

Lol, I am close to 3K rpm on the highway with the gears anyway, and with what I've just read, I am thinking dumps! I won't pass inspection anyway with the h pipe, and I thought my exhaust was nice and loud until today, when I had two different stangs go by that made my exhaust sound stock!
Had alot of fun trying to keep up with one of them on the highway, but there was no shot lol. His car was beautiful, tastefully modded, and fast and loud as hell!

Blue, you don't want dumps on your edger, it's got the lower rear cover with the nice cut out's for tips.

and it is lounder, since the sound is bouncing off the road and back up to the rear floor of the car.

Make more power or switch mufflers. IF you make more power than theres more air pushing through the exhaust from the engine which makes the car louder.
