dual exhaust system

I was wondering if a 94 bronco w/ a 351 could take a dual exhaust for a f 150. I cant seem to find a dual exhaust kit anywhere for this year bronco

Re: dual exhaust system

Right off I would say no because the truck is longer.

Re: dual exhaust system

You can make anything work if you think it out. I've been thinking for duels it would probably be best to have both dumps out the pass side right next to each other to limit the number of bends.

Re: dual exhaust system

Is the F150 a 4x4. That is going to make a big difference too. If not, getting by the transfer case on the Bronco is going to be your biggest hurdle becuse of the extra bends in the exhaust.

Re: dual exhaust system

I've also been told that dual exhaust may not be the best thing for Broncos. I've been told that lowering the backpressure in the exhaust lowers the low end torque. I can't confirm that though.

Re: dual exhaust system

Dump both sides into a 3" pipe. Done!

Re: dual exhaust system

it will lower your torque, to less of backpressure will effect it in a bad way.

Re: dual exhaust system

I'm sure you could get it to fit, if you are talking duals for an F150 4WD. Some pipe will likely have to be cut/shortened. And you need to see how it is routed, not much room around the auto tranny/tcase in a '94 Bronco.

Duals are not ideal if you are interested in keeping torque. If you have a stock 351, the target pipe size (single) is 2.5-3". This size is even good if modified, as long as we aren't talking any high HP/higher RPM motor. So with duals (true duals), what pipe size would you need to keep torque? Dual 2.5-3" pipes, which are typically advertised, would be overkill, and you would feel it in your bottom end. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Even dual 2.25", if you do the math on internal area, comes out way more than a single 3" pipe.

So, from a cool standpoint, you need dual 3" pipes to look good, but it sure won't perform as well.

Re: dual exhaust system

I meant a single 3" exhaust. 2 into 1. Alot of guys have run that setup and have been happy.
