Now for the exhaust. Thoughts were at first were 2.5" duals with a crossover or "X" pipe. There wasnt realy a lot of room for this with dual tanks. The is plenty of ground clearance but exhaust would be hanging a bit low. Looked at a lot of different turbo style mufflers but was realy wanting something rather quiet. Reasons one my ears have seen to much abuse over the years, not realy interested in a more powerful stereo. Big reason ever back up and not feel or hear your crunching something?
Talking to a few muffler shops they wanted to place both mufflers on the passenger side of the truck. Thought that was a bit lame. At this point thought it might work out best all around to find a dual inlet 2.5 muffler with a 3" single outlet. Most of the factory pipes could be retained. I love the look of duals out the back but this is a tow vehicle a big single should be fine. Serching once again found plenty of single inlet dual outlet mufflers.
Finaly looking through walkers stuff looked in the RV section. There was a ricently added muffler. It was dual inlet 2.5 single out 3". Called Walker and spoke with an engineer. He told me it was a direct for a factory Ford motor motor home chassis with a 460. He also stated that the factory muffler was about 8" of back pressure this muffler was only 1". So I ordered one.
