    Y Pipe

    I thought I would let everyone know about the Y pipe on Fbodys. I have a 2000 Trans Am, WS6, LS1 with a stock Y Pipe. On the drivers side of the Y Pipe, it is crushed for clearance. I was going to buy a SLP Y Pipe from WS6 but instead, I took it to a local muffler shop. They cut off the old Y pipe and made me a new one without the flat side on the Y Pipe causing better airflow. I took it back to the track afterwards and ran 3/10 faster in a quarter mile. Those of us track heads know that 3/10 is a great gain. The SLP Y Pipe would have cost me $250 (shipping Included) and the custom one cost me $150. I thought I would let everyone know that a custom Y Pipe is cheaper and and option.

    Do you have any ground clearance issues? I am going to have the one pipe on my Mac y-pipe modified to tuck a little closer to the body. I want a little more ground to lower my car.

    Custom Y-pipe will save you some dough.

    having it slightly crushed shouldnt impead airflow much at all if any.
    the day you went to the track, what were the conditions compared to the last time.
    remember, no two runs are ever the same.

    Every post I have seen about the crushed pipe said there was maybe a 1 h.p gain because it is flatter, but also wider so gains are little to none, but glad to see it worked great for you.
