    not necessarilly, i had a single in single out mounted on my old silverado and it split to duals after where it was mounted.

    for the question about toning down your exhaust (2-bowtie) look into a resonator if you dont want to compromise the flow of your straights...every muffler that tones down the note..does so at the expense of flow

    I had the same crappy cut the old stocker off and piece in a flowmaster setup when I bought my car. Best money I ever spent was for a Hooker Catback to quiet down everything and a DMH cutout so I can be loud when I want to be. My car sounded like my truck going down the road with the Flowmaster pieced in.

    i have no personal experence with the m6s..but i do know that the stock shifter has way to much "travel" so it leads to bent forks ect. and i have drove a m6 maro and the stock shifter just feels too sloppy and clumsy. pro 5.0 ect would deff be a great upgrade for any t-56

    on SFCs i think every f-bod should have one. I just recently added 3 point sfc weld ons..and it makes the car feel sold..not so twisty like before..helps prevent torque twist and saves the rear qaurters, gaps and stops all those damn squeaks..Since it is winter here, i have not had a change to really give it a go and see how she feels through corners and for WOT from a stop. My LCAs and relocation brackets for them will also help so i wont be able to speak solely for the sfcs..but deff 2 great mods ...good shit chuckie

    The sfc's did indeed stiffen up the car allot. The only problem I found recently is no when I got a flat tire and tried to use the sfc to jack up my car it lifted the whole dam side of the car.

    Thats good. That means they really worked and stiffened the car up like they were supposed too.

    I understand. Just wasn't sure if my jack out of the trunk would hold.
