Yea.....2.25, but thats fine for now until I go with a complete exhaust w/headers in the Spring. Then this set up with the Flo 40, and new cat will go on another FSB(I always need more than one FSB).Fireguy50 said:I see you have a 5.0L
do they make a 5.8L as well?
Shorties should bolt right onto that Y-pipe, as long as it bolts right onto your manifold balls.Streetgang said:Yea.....2.25, but thats fine for now until I go with a complete exhaust w/headers in the Spring.

I dont remember if it was available for 5.8L units or not.....I dont want to tell you yes, and then they dont have it.
I wanted to ask you about my ABS.....did you see my post below?
Quite a bit of both vintage and current issue equpt, but with enough ammo, and one handgun.....you can get anything you could possibly need if things got ugly.....after 911 living within 2 miles of(and working in NYC) the #1 terrorist target in the US aint no joke to me anymore. No joke at all.SquattyD said:what other survival supplies do you have from the department of defense?
That sounds like a plan whose time has comeBull 1 said:Check this out: Flowmaster makes a 70 series Big Block II muffler (part# 524703, www.flowmastermuffleers.com) with DUAL 2.25" inlets and single 3" outlet...Connect this muffler (I'm using flanges for easy removal) to the Catco downpipes and then full 3" straight out the stock tailpipe location! :shocked

Better make sure the flowmaster isn't that much wider or taller than the Catco cat as things don't start to open up until after the transfer case crossmember (space is tight until then). Of course you could always lengthen the 2 1/4" pipes even more if you had to.
Thanks for checking up on that Catco official website, good to know. There are companies that make 3" tailpipes but nobody's is cheap and most, like Summit, don't want to sell it seperately.
Dynomax does make a mandrel bent 2 1/2"(reasonably enough for me to have bought it).
I wonder what it would take to get them to tool up for a 3" mandrel bent for us?
Otherwise you could neck back down to 2 1/2" and fit into the Dynomax tailpipe or all the way down to 2 1/4" if you want. The other option is I'll bet Walker or Flowmaster or someone makes a muffler that goes in with twin 2 1/4"s and leaves at 2 1/2" so you can fit directly into the 2 1/2" Dynomax tailpipe.
Lets face it, that's a 302 not a 460 or warmed up 351 so 2 1/2" should do it IMO

You got a part number for that tailpipe? so far you've been a wealth of info to me during my exhaust project. I should be able to get you pictures of that flowmaster Y pipe tonight.
One question though, I got the 3'' Y pipe from flowmaster, would it be better to go 3'' all the way back to the rear? or is 3'' too big for the bends and curves. Would I get more performance by going back down to 2 1/2 for the tailpipe?
