    Many dual exhausts like that found on alot of muscle cars, and they flow great. Fbodies have had that since 67, Ford Mustangs had it, Nova's had it.....
    It's a real dual system, no doubt about it. The aftermarket even has high flowing mufflers just for these setups (Bassani being one of them). The muffler really isn't much different from the smaller dual versions, you are just running both pipes through a larger single muffler, in some cases they are seperated in the case. It's just a way of packing a dual system in a smaller package for tight working spaces.

    The Kooks system is running both of their pipes over the Panhard which is why the relocation bracket (lowering bracket) is required.
    Not going under the PH in Michigan, lol. The roads suck so bad here I have to be concerned with ground clearance and relocating the PH (which is only $200 including a PH IIRC) is the safer way IMO.

    Just looking at my 4th gens, it appears there is more room under the panhard than over it. That's taking into account that I don't lower mine. Next time it's on the lift I'll get a better look at it, but it looks easily doable.

    I would tend to think a lowered car would have issues, especially on irregular roads.

    Priced a shop here in Michigan that does 304 mandrel and it was MORE than the Kooks. Went Kooks....
