I can probably go out and get some pics if you want. It's a 95 k1500 with turndowns on the pass side in front of the rear axle. What are they going into?

dont just turn them down, give them some tail to dirrect it out from unde rthe truck. your head will explode from the resinance that turn downs tend to create.

Yeah. Something else to think of. I'm putting pipes out the back sometime soon. I bought it that way and it's LOUD, enough to set off car alarms. Sounds good with my semi built 350 though.

Some shitty cell phone pics I just took. The exhaust is exposed on the underside for wheeling but I don't care. This is my DD/work truck/tow rig.

The driver's side exhaust runs under the tranny and the two pipes run side by side on the inside of the passenger frame rail.

it is easier to do if you have 3/4 length headers not fulls.



every brand and set are different, the collets will vary in height and distance that the end and you will have to figure it out on your own.

just get 3-4 U and 2 sticks of straight pipe and you will have to peice it from there to get a true high and tight fit.

fwiw i fucking hate exhaust shops, they dont give a fuck. they will run pipe and hangers every goddamn dirrection. i had to chop a guys exhaust out a few weeks ago because the cocksucken exhaust shop put a H pipe in it 3" behind the tcase and the entire syystem from manifold to tips was one fucking peice!!!!

I got mine run around the passenger side to avoid having to route the drivers side around the T-case and gas tank. If your careful and locate them right theres plenty of room down the passenger side frame rail to run two 2 1/2" pipes. After mine pass the gas tank, they just split off to their respective sides.

On my 83 i have full length headers with ball flange 3inch collectors. I bought a pair of older camaro (94) front pipes that is 3inch and bends on a 90 and bolted that to my collector,(runs perfect asside the trans over the xmember) then ran 3inch pipe from that into flowmaster super 44s also 3inch in and out. Then right to the bumper and bent it to 35 degrees so you can barely see it. All the pipe was ran even with the frame rail so you cannot see it. I do have a really worked up 350(358)and need the 3inch tho.


1st pic if you look behind the shackle you will see how the pipe come out of the header and goes up on a 90.( a little hard to see)
2nd how it comes at the rear behind the roll pan. (cut off now so its only 2inches past the roll pan)

Here's my old setup with the 350, I just used that cheap, flexible exhaust tube for a while cause I didn't want to spend anytime bending exhaust tubing when i was going to have to re-do it more than likely with a doubler. I'm glad I did that cause now I've swapped in a completely different motor and I'm just going to run it all into one muffler when I'm "done".

It sucks ass, but I wasn't planning to use it long enough for it to rot.

My old magnaflow setup. Mac F-body midlengths, 2.25 pipe, and Magnaflows. Then I clocked the case up and had to take them off.


But I did go to F-body long tubes that actually fit better than the Macs.

If your going to build your own check ebay for a small lot of rejected mandrel bends and buy a straight length of pipe from summit racing. That's what I did when I built mine. I ran into the same thing. My exhaust shop wanted $90 for one mandrel bend. I ordered 9 of them off ebay for 50 shipped.
