well i plan to have my 2.5"/4" lift in before that, so It shouldnt be a problem for ground clearance. I wanted pipes straight back on each side without resistance, but ill get under and see if its even possible.
but would you recommend an X or H pipe connection if theres no feasible way to get it down the drivers side? how would the layout look for dual exhaust
Gackner has the only truly perfect dual set up
His both run down the passenger's side with staggered mufflers and dual s to the axle. He hasn't quite figured out what to do to get over the axle yet though.
Going with what slw210 suggests (shorties into a 3" Y-pipe, single three inch muffler and 3" mandrel bent tailpipes, I'll expand on that with another idea for you.
The guy who I patterned my own system after (he's here periodically) was WD-40 from the old BBS board.
He used the system slw210 is describing except he split out after his muffler and used dual tailpipes and who the heck would know they weren't duals all the way.
If you want that Mustang small block Ford sound that everyone craves there are other factors that would make one muffler sound killer.
Those are; different cam, higher flow (or no) cat
, better cylinder heads and of course any kind of header.
Back to the laying on your back with a length of pipe, digital camera and sketch pad with measuring tape.....try it. I got a lot of my brainstorms under there.
There are some things you cannot change under a Bronco; The path of the tailpipe, the location of the muffler, etc.
If you use the area where the tailpipe starts (before the axle) as cast in stone, then work forward, you'll realize just how short our Bronco's exhaust systems really are.
I need 3" header collector extension between my "one" cat (hollow now
:toothless) and my muffler and the tailpipe goes right into the back of my muffler.
Ain't NO WAY I could use that muffler with the stock two cats. Just not enough room.
Screw the neighbours and get under there and start a-thinkin':toothless and a-dreamin' and a-schemin'.
