dump it

I have a 3 in exhaust including 3 inch cats with a flowmaster 40 series dumped right before the rear axle. it sounds mean as hell goin down the road and tearing up the local hot spots. i also have a 3 electronic exhaust cutout to dump the exhaust with no muffler on a switch whenever johnny law is around

I don't really like my turn-down.

It makes too much interior noise at 70 mph on the highway, but thats not what pisses me off the most. The dust kills me. If you run in really powdery sand/silt stay away from turn-downs. I'm thinking of running mine out in front of the rear tire.

Bassani Y, 3" in/out Magnaflow cat, 3" in/out Magnaflow straight muffler (the cat is doing most of the hush work), turned down in front of the axle.

My dump doesn't bother me, but the cats do, so i plan on gettin rid of them. There is more dust in the sand but i am usually movin so it doesn't bother me. gorund clearance is great and thats what i need the most. interior noise isn't all that bad.

When the rocks are covered in a thick layer of the really fine sand, and you are mashin the hell outta the loud pedal trying to get through a tough section, being able to see would be wonderful. :banghead

Wonder if it would be better if I turned it upside down . . . :toothless

i guess it all comes down to preference. i spend my time out in the california desert, and soem of the sand dunes, along with a few mud pits. my dump hasn't caused me any problems and the only problem i have had with my exhaust cutout is i ran the wires to close to the exhaust and just had to rerun them

Nah, if you're moving along at a pretty godd clip, everthing is cool. When you slow down, like technical stuff, it gets to be a hassle.

yah i am running 1 cat right now, it does silence alot of it. But took out the 2nd one and replaced it with piping. Then have a flowmaster y pipe heading into 2 flow 40's. They dump right before the axles. Haven't put any tips or anything on it, but it does kinda suck during the summer. I want to finish it up somehow, but haven't had time.

My stock rear bumper never did anything but get hung up in the dirt and twist on impact. My stock exhaust was sacraficed in a 4 ft deep snow pile

I have shorty headers running into a single cat, and splitting off into two flowmaster 40s with turndowns that dump about 1ft before the rear axle. Sounds mean as hell, and the noise has never bugged me ( probably has to do with the 1600w amp and 2 12s :toothless )

i've got 3 inch y and cat and flow 40 dualed out side in front of rear tire. with these flatish tips that are renforced and right up 1/4 inch from the body. i had the same cat and muffler set up before but with no pipes after the muffler. that was awsome sounding. at idle and when i reved it up. but on freeway drives it gave me a headache. the way it is now i think these tips make it sound a bit weird. but it is still loud enough for me. just wish the pipes were more protected

ideal set up i think is 3 inch pipes, cat, muffler exiting through the body with the pipe going over the frame. if you look at it right in front of the rear wheel well there is a bit of body you can trimm and squeeze it through there. it's what i would have done if i'd of had a decent shop do it.

There is a very good reason most states have a law requiring that the exhaust exit be outside of the passenger compartment of the vehicle, which is the entire vehicle on a Bronco. CO poisoning is a very serious and often fatal condition. So the stock location is the safest, best place for the exhaust to exit, and will keep you from being hassled by the law in most states.
