    >>>>true duals on stock manifolds?<<<<<

    Updated down below

    Hey guys i dont want to change my headers cause i live in california but i was thinking about doing true duals with two bullets dumped on my 1999 ls1 m6. Should i just weld a bullet into the i-pipe and dump it? Otherwise i was going to get x pipe kit and replace the flattened piece on the stock y pipe and then run bullets dumped. Will i see any more noticible power with the duals vs the i-pipe on a mostly stock ls1 camaro?


    i am now looking at modifying this kit to save cost i would be adding an x or h pipe and bullets.

    True duals will always yield more power.

    I run Bassani, which is made to bolt to the stock cats and run true duals with a x crossover all the way over the axle and out at the stock locations.

    +1 for the bassani if you want a true dual system. Do it right and do it one time. Dumping the exhaust in front of the rearend is cheesy on anything but a race car. Just looks tacky on a street car,,,,just my opinion though.

    And Yet Another Exhaust ?

    discussion in here about the bassani and TSP. also, seeing as you are in california, you may want to check the laws about where the exhaust can exit at. i think, california requires it to exit past the passenger compartment. this leaves any type of dumped system before the axle out.

    the bassani uses the stock location exits and utilizes one muffler, just like the stock setup. it's a dual in/out muffler. requires no suspension modifications. here's a pic of the whole system on the floor.

    I dont really have the money for that setup i was looking to spend no more then $500 maybe i could have one built for around $500 that is a rear exit. I was never aware that you had to have it go to the back for the most part. I will check on the laws more though tomorrow.

    If you can't swing for the Bassani true dual system then the next best bet would be a large single system.

    Check out Mufflex, they make a nice 4 inch diameter single system, and with the spintech muffler it is one awsome sounding system. It's the best flowing single system I have played with so far.

    I am like you though, I want to try the Bassani myself and see how it compares to even the biggest single system out there, but I can't swing the cost for it with other cars that need attention too. Maybe Christmas though.
