How illegal is a hood stack. Could a man drive down the street without gettin in all kinds of trouble?

depends on your state, but as far as I know:
- Obstruction of view
- No exhaust can terminate before passanger cab

Another post from Texas says it is legal, at least in that state as long as it is above the cab.

Check it out. It shows her truck blowing plenty of smoke out the one stack coming through the hood, with a flapper on it, no less.

Thats not true from what I know, but I am not a Texas state inspector. The exhaust has to exit past the passenger cab, and if you run it past the cab and thru the bed (stacks) it has to be taller than the cab. There can also be no obstruction forward the windshield so it fails both ways.

when I had my stack they weren't taller then the cab I have been pulled over more times then everybody in here!

you can have the stack in the front but it need to be moved to the side of the hood and not blocking the mirrors or the passengers view!!!
