    making true duals

    I was looking into getting headers and getting true duals done. I was wondering if this set up from JEGS would work with are cars?

    I assume it's not car specific, the main problem is going to be the driver side before the x-pipe, the clearance is lower so you or a shop will have to bend it to make it clear.

    Try it just keep in mind you may have to pay a guy to bend it to help it fit. You need to buy the mufflers to.

    That setup is only the x-pipe and a few feet of pipe. you would still need mufflers and pipes for over the axle, unless you are dumping before the axle.

    Over the axle is overrated and expensive, hate having my 3" go to 2.5" especially w/o mandrel bends.

    if you dump before the axle, don't do a strait turndown, angle them down and out just a hair so your not kicking up as much dust/dirt if your parked somewhere besides clean blacktop.....trust me if you want to keep your car cleaner.

    Go to a few shops and get quotes for duals buying a universal x-pipe may be more of a PITA than them just creating their own.

    Instead of bullshitting around with that extra pre bent pipe, just get the merge itself http://www.summitracing.com/parts/BIG-53621FLT/ from what i've researched this is a good design, only 40$ too... Flowtech makes a 2.5" version aswell

    Yeah im with that the shops 99% of the time have so much extra piping that they can make you your own pipes for cheap... Call before hand and tell them what it will be with the x- pipe or how much to the tax included if they make one because i dont know what it is when you bring in your own parts they know you are cheap and give you a better price i know i am when it comes to expensive welding

    Does anyone no where you can get true duals over the axle done in NJ or PA area for a decent amount of money? What are the fitment issues with 3" piping all the way back?

    Just my opinion but I would avoid both the summit and jegs x as they dont flow very well. If you look at the way they cut half of each bend out and then weld it together you basically have 2 pipes of say 2.5" dia. coming together into a single 2.5-2.75" dia. section and then splitting back apart. I could build you a much better x for the same price at my shop and then mail it to you. I could even make it any width or angle you want to help with install. I know when I do this setup on the f-bodies I do the inlet pipes at a wider angle than the outlets.
    Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, if it wasn't for fords our tools would rust
