why do you have to run 2 mufflers? i have my exhaust split into dual after a first muffler, which is a flowmaster, i love the way it sounds and looks, i wouldn't waste money on 2 mufflers

I have a dual exhaust dynomax ultra flow setup. About 70 or so for each muffler, I bought 2 31/2" tips, sounds real deep, I love it, it now compares to the sound of my dads 01 cobra at idle. he he.....

some people just want a true dual, if I were to do it I would run the 1 muffler with dual output.

I didnt think you could run true duals (2 pipes all the way from front to back) on a first gen.

you "can" run true duals, i was going to, but since i was getting this for free, i didn't wanna impose to much, it is very tricky and can be pricey, i was still gonna use one muffler, i was gonna have a 2 in 2 out cat followed by a 2 in 2 out muffler, kinda to act as a h-pipe, then go out, you can folloow the stock routing, but under the rear tire you have to stagger the pipes next to each other, but it just didn't seem worth it.

Having 2 mufflers serves no real benefit on these engines. The only time true duals are needed are in high horse motors, V8's with blowers or NOS. The lack of backpressure from this sort of setup would hurt your performance more than help it. You are probably best to stick with what you have and put your cash into a chip or something else. Just what i have learned from playing with cars so long.

i also did mine for sounds and looks, i wil try and get a pic or sound clip sooner oer later, i wouldn't run true duals for the fact of back pressure, but that is also why i was gonna run a 2-2 cat followed right after by a 2-2 muffler, keep back pressure up and give ya the aviability of a dual from there back. if i was gonna do it again i would do a 2 in 1 2.5 inch out, and do that back to where i hve it split, and prob leave those pipes as 2.25

well thanx guys i guess i will probably just go with the one muffler split. so u are sayin that i should just have one mufler under there split off into two pipes/tipes?well i think ill either do that or go with just one muffler all the way.i want sound more than performance but would also like some performance benefits out of it.

The reason I went with 2 mufflers instead of one is because of the availablilty of them. I know its mostly looks, not performance, I saw an easy opportunity for dual exhaust, and I said the hell with it, and got it. I love it and still love to just stare at it...lol. One muffler and one outlet would even work good, I just wanted to do something different, I only know one other person to my knowledge(wutang) with a dual exhaust setup with 2 mufflers. Man I need to take some pics, and get them posted on the site archives......
