    left side of Y pipe flattened

    Anybody know why the left side of the Y pipe is flattened out? It looks like there is plenty of room for a regular pipe there. Just curious.

    For ground clearance issues. Also for floor pan clearance. The motor will rock around quite a bit, this flat pipe allows a little more room before it hits the floorboards. Remember this is the side that raises under power.

    Ya,,,the pacesetter header collectors are very close to the floor,,,coupled with the Y-pipe coming straight off,,,,makes for no room what-so-ever.

    I didn't think the bumpstop would cure mine, and quite frankly I didn't want another contraption hanging under the car,,,so I ended up just cutting and rewelding the Y-pipe to gain more floor clearance.

    Now you can see the Y-pipe from the driver side but that okay,,,,made it easier to throw the wideband on it

    But I plan to do it over,,,,leaving the pacesetter headers but going with a texas speed Y-pipe,,,,they are much better made.
    That pacesetter Y-pipe kinda sucked at the Y-junction, and I had to cut and modify there as well. But I guess for most people it gets the job done for little cash....
