Flowmaster Exhuast continued

Well the local muffler guy gave me a price for installing the Flowmaster Series 40. Just wanted to run it by you all for some input. He told me that the Flowmaster was $85, he would include (2) chrome tips, and some type of aluminum pipes all for $350. He told me that he may have to move my left rear brake line hose a tad to get the left pipe to exit near the left rear tire, and that this would be the hardest part of the job. A buddy at work told me that on his F150, he put (2) flowmasters welded together for the dual exhaust (he had the single outlet from the cat split into the inlets of the flowmasters. I'm not sure what purpose this would do since I won't have true duals. Would the single Flowmaster with the dual outlets be the best bet for my particular application? Thanks to all in advance!

Mike

Re: Flowmaster Exhuast continued

The real resriction is from the cat forwards, a dont think two flowmasters will alleviate that and one bigblock 5" thick flowmaster flows good enough. Another thing, the f150 has more length underneath to play with, its a tight squeeze under a bronco...

<font color=blue>RE:
Moving the left rear brake line.</font color=blue>
When the muffler shop did mine, they welded a bracket (basically the stamped portion of a muffler clamp)
onto the tailpipe to attach the brake line to.
We just used a large zippie tie and attached the line loosely to the clamp.
It moves freely with the suspension, and keeps it off the pipe. Works great, and haven't noticed any chaffing.
I'd like to put in a stainless line for added security though.
Just in case you ask, this is what I have.
Well one thing I don't have is the cats. Don't need em.
There's 2-5/16" headpipes coming off the JBA headers into a 24" long "y" pipe collector into 3" straight pipe to the muffler. (whew, that's a mouthfull)
Dual 2-1/2" out the back of the muffler, exiting out both sides at 45 angles just in front of the rear bumper.
It's a Flowmaster "Delta Flow" 40 series.
The reason I went with the Delta Flow is, it's quieter inside the vehicle while being just as loud outside as the standard 40 series.
Did you check out their website with the specs?
Delta Flow 40 Series
Original 40 Series
They've updated their site...cool...got sound now.
Incidentally, mine sounds alot more like the '69 Camaro (hey, no flames here man) sound bite with the originals, than the Mustangs with the delta's.

Re: Flowmaster Exhuast continued

Has anyone heard what the 40 series sounds like on an inline 6?

Re: Flowmaster Exhuast continued

I have a friend that said he heard one and it sounded surprisingly good, he was planning on putting one on his 93 f150, but now is selling it...
