    Where exactly does the Y-pipe split? Before the muffler? Therefore needing 2 mufflers/tailpipes?
    Or does it split after the muffler?
    I am considering this setup on my 93 NA LX.
    Where can i get the pipe? Anyone have a part number?
    Should I go with 2 1/4 or 2 1/2?

    Thanks a lot for your replies!

    Split it after the catalytic convertor, 2.25", two mufflers.

    I did until I swapped engines. I'm running a single 3" on the passenger side.

    Does splitting the exhaust on a 2.3L really make a difference or is it just cooler looking?

    It just looks cooler, you can get as much flow from a 3" single as a 2.5" dual. Personal preference, really.

    Is there a noticable difference between a single divers side exhaust and a single passenger side exhaust? It would make since that there would be since you cut down on a few bends and maybe shorten the pips a little.
