    What kind of exhaust systems are you all using. I have a 76' with Hooker Super Comp headers. Are there any good 2.5" kits out there, or do I have to go to a custom shop.

    Have to go custom. I'm currently running Hooker Super Comps and Flowtech Terminators dumped with 2 1/4" pipes.

    Are you using a balance pipe to connect the left and right exhaust, or do they stay independent? Also, did you go with the 2 1/4" (instead of 2 1/2")
    because of space, or choice, or cost, etc?

    I've never dealt with custom exhaust shops - if I supply the mufflers, what kind of cost I am looking at (ball-park). Thanks.

    I paid 130 for the cat back on my 90 ranger and 140 for my 86 F-150. but they just used the crushed crap. mufflers rot out they put a new one on for free though.

    I don't have an H-pipe, but after I drop the 408 in, I'll be running a 3" X-pipe. I wanted to go with 2 1/2" pipes, but when I had the exhaust made, I wanted the pipes exiting downward behind the rear tires. The shop said there wasn't enough room for 2 1/2" pipes, so they put the 2 1/4" on with the 2 1/2" inlet/outlet mufflers.

    I did 2 1/4" full exhaust on my II, mufflers and cats, completely true dual, no h or x pipe. I believe it cost somewhere around $250-300 from the headers back, and I supplied the cats and mufflers.

    With my current engine, I plan to do a 2 1/2" full exhaust system, universal x-pipe, not sure about cats or not though.

    See those taillights right in front of you?
    2.5" pipes going to a Y-collector, and 3" back to a Thrush turbo in the stock location.

    Sounds beautiful, but not a real powerhouse exhaust. I hear its only good to about 320hp. More than that, go dual.
