Re: My new exhaust!
slicker, I'm rollin around with the windows down right now, so for all I know the cab will become a box of fumes with the windows up. I would not consider this an ideal exhaust by any means... in fact, I wanted to run a pipe all the way back behind the tire but AutoZone didn't have enough pipe to allow me to get the exhaust back past the tranny xmember so that an exhaust shop could get to it, and I bet it gets really expensive if the shop has to unbolt the y-pipe to do any work on it. If I can find more 3" pipe nearby, or online cheap, I'm going to extend it at least back to the front of the tire, if not the back of it. Unless you're looking for crazy loudness, there is no advantage to having such a short exhaust because you'll actually get better gas scavenging with a longer pipe, which theoretically helps performance. This is supposed to be a temporary exhaust, but then again my front bumper was "temporarily" off for 2 years [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
For that guy in the peanut gallery that doesn't like straight pipes, send me a flowmaster free of charge and I'll be glad to weld it on [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
