Re: 304 exhaust ideas
Dont go with a stock style Y pipe. With anykind of lift you will run into problems with the driveshaft hitting it or the ypipe hanging toooo low.
I will never have headers on my cj, they are just to much of a PITA. My manifolds lasted 23 years before one of them cracked and that was only because there was a bolt broken, from probably day one. Duals may breathe better, but we are only talking about a 304 in a jeep and like CJ dave said, how often do you see 5 grand.
I ended up wrapping my exhaust around the front of the motor, then down the passenger side. I went down the passenger side for two reasons. One i plan to go with a cable for the auto shift and didnt want any problems with the cable being near the exhaust and two, to get the heat off of the drivers side floor.
The pipes in the front are either 2 1/4 or 2 1/2 (i forget), then after they come together i went to 3in to get the sound i wanted and to just pimp alittle with that big ole tailpipe. View my posts from maybe a month or three ago and you will find some pics of the exhaust. They arent the pics pics but you should get the idea.
