    Ya I will be putting a 90 deg and extension on to the out let just for the noise factor alone but I have seen some guys in picks on other forums have put a ball valve on the outlet and talk about back pressure on the skimmer outlet, any thoughts?

    that ball valve will help to regulate the water level inside the skimmer. especially when the water level inside would be deeper than the chamber it stands in. Else you will be dependent on the sump first chamber water level to control the water level inside the skimmer.
