Hey guys i have been sittin around here tonight just surfin the web and i think i came up with an idea that may work for our cars. It seems as though me and everyone else on this site wants dual exhaust, but i think we have all came to realize that tru dual exhaust is inevitable. So we have made exceptions i have seen side exit dual exhaust(which i want but i think my Eibach's just put me over the line of being too low), and a guy that has branched his exhaust right after the rear axle into dual piping. So i was thinking...What do all of you think of an exhaust that is on Camaro's where its a single muffler with dual outlets one exhaust outlet on each side were piping can be run to your destination.

Been tried, I think it worked, but space issues were a concern, since the fuel filler is in the area just behind the axle and the spare tire tub is behind that. This makes space very limited to try and fit an F-body muffler in that area. The F-body muffler is quite larger, diameter is too bad, but length is a big issue.

well remember it doesnt HAVE to be an F-body muffler there are at least 2 vehicles that i can think of off the top of my head that utilize this exhuast set up one being a Honda CRX and a Neon being second. But, you are correct, it seems as though everything to deal with our 2nd Gen J's is space limiting...

How about cutting the exhaust off right after the cat, putting a muffler on if you so desire, then a Y-pipe going to tailpipes that will run to both sides of the rear. You could even buy twin tips to make it look more authentic.

The problem here seems to be the muffler. Has anyone started their car with the muffler off? It's not really that loud. The street legal limit is 96 decibals - that's hella loud. As long as it still has the cat, it should be okay. It's only a V6. I've heard the raw noise of a 2.8. It's pretty sweet and surprisingly quiet.

i have 90z 3.1 with dual tips. cat was removed and replaced with a straight pipe going to a y-pipe then out to 2 4.5" tips. its not that loud but you can hear it coming. had to cut the other side of my rear bumper to look like the other side.

Your's went out the back then? I was going to put sidepipes on mine. Just stainless pipes as simple as possible, as cheap as possible. Tips optional. 4.5" is really big...

yeah they go out back no problem. i wan to get rid of them, they were on it when i bought it. in fact the hole exhaust was done when i bought it. i dont like it, it rattles and pops too much. it sounds mean at low rpm or idle but the top end sounds horrible.i want flowmasters

i am in the midst of installing a crossflow muffler like whats in the camaros. there is really only 2 ways of doing it really. mount it lengthwise with the car and have one of the outlets facing the front of the car, and basically bend the piping to almost a c shape.
or the way i'm doing it, mount it width wise with the car. i cut out a part of my trunk, so basicly i wont be driving with a spare, but it should turn out good. i am going to be getting the trunk welded up by the end of the week.
the way i am doing gets it a little more even flow, and some may say its way to much work to bother with, but i want to try it, i havnt seen it done.

or just get a regular flowmaster single in dual out muffler. youll need custom piping & hanges, but it should work. theyre the same size as a standard muffler.
