    Go to your favorite on-line shopping spot and search for mufflers. You can find a "flowmaster look-alike" for less than 1/3 the cost, and maybe cheaper than that. Summit, sorted by exhaust, then mufflers, then price low to high will show you a bunch less than $25 each. If you get a "turbo" or "max flow" style it's going to be an open chamber style to give you that low rumble. Here's one, 2.5" in & out clearance priced at $19.50 down from $29, and they have it in 2.25" or 3" at the same sale price. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/xyz-77543/overview/ A guy can afford to replace the mufflers six times before investing the flowmaster price!

    theres lots of take off mufflers around from people putting custom exhausts on late model cars-------and they are stainless, won't rust out every couple years---------


    or do a search for mufflers from any of the stainless exhaust people---you can get any size, inlet/exhaust, length, round, oval , etc that you want---------


    I like the exhaust for the 2000-04? mustangs as it is wide at the rear and clears coil over setups nicely over the axle, has the mufflers forward of axle like they used to be---none of that single large garbage can like on most late models

    Hey Mario, welcome to CHR!! If you would like to post some pictures of your truck, it would be great to start your own thread and post them so we can all see your progress. If you click on "Forum", then "Hot Rod Talk", then "New Thread", you can get started. When posting pictures, some people like to upload the pics to a site like Photobucket then copy the image URL into the body of their post. You can also upload pics directly to the site if they aren't too big. Hope that helps a little.

    Well here's some pictures of my cardboard tube exhaust mockup. Just trying to get around the trans, brakes and steering in this episode while keeping the pipes up under the truck. The drivers side it the tight side the the passengers won't be a problem. I thinking about the heat ect. so close to the trans ? What do you think ?

    Looks good! I wouldn't worry a bit about the proximity to the tranny.

    I'm thinking maybe a heat shield or wrapping the pipe with header tape just because I'm a worrier ! The header pipe coming off the exhaust manifold is 2 1/4 " I want to reduce it to 2" just after the bend. See any troubles with a pipe of 2" for 283 bored .60 over ?

    lower it more to match what you have on the passenger side---------it will be a lot cooler with it a little lower

    did you cut off the brake pedal?

    Jerry: I had to cut the pedal to shorten it, would have come out 5 inches to high. It's one of those generic pedal assy.
    The trouble with lowering the pipe is it will have to be lowered by aprox. 4" to clear the frame work and I'm not sure of the ground clearance, I guess I'll have to set the truck back on the floor and have a look. Worried about speed bumps etc.
    Thanks for the in puts.
