Its been done, use a Pitts style muffler from Bison or Slimline or something else. It will be a beast! I have the same engine and muffler for my TF P-40 and it's pretty compact.

No worries!
There is a guy that claims he put a DLE 85 in the P-47 but I never saw any photos of the installation. You can have a scale size 4 blade prop with that kind of power.

I built a TF P47 with a DLE61 about a year ago. I kept the standard side exhaust and canted the inverted engine to the 7 o'clock position so the exhaust comes out of the bottom of the cowl. At that angle it all fits inside the cowl nicely. The 61 spins a Falcon 24 x 9. Very happy with the plane and engine. Only 1 dead stick by running out of fuel - was having too much fun flying with a mates Pica Spitfire.

I always laugh when I read this tagline but...
Shouldn't he be "at" the urinal instead of in it?
Makes for sticky shoes.
