    If I'm not mistaken the difference is in the center bar and one is wider than the other and I don't remember which is which.

    Well Happy New Year to all ! This is the year my truck will be on the road . I said the same thing the last 5 years, but its true this time.
    Lots to post but time is all I need.
    Here's a pic of new , newest exhaust


    Reason I needed new exhaust is that I needed ground clearance, so I went to oval pipe where needed.
    Why did I need more clearance ? Because I had to go to smaller tires. Why smaller tires ? Because I couldn't get the dang tire off the rear axel without dropping the axel off the air ride , slight over look during the build

    Where did you find oval pipe, or did you flatten it yourself?

    Company called Spin Tech, they are very proud of their pipes, expensive in my mind, but so was everybody else. They have all the adapters to go from round to oval etc.

    Today was torque converter change day. Reason , the converter was causing forward movement unless I stood on the brakes. It wasn't meant to be in this lite of a vehicle , I installed a 2200-2500 rpm converter.

    I saw this on FB on a Pullmax Group page, basically a set of dies is used to flatten the tubing. This arrangement would allow you to assemble your pipes using mandrel bends and then flatten afterward in order to have a smoother transition in the corners/bends. I know, day late, dollar short. (story of my life ) But even for a guy without the reciprocating machine, a set of dies made up like this and adapted to an arbor press would get the job done.. albeit more slowly.

    When I was shopping for tube & bends I noticed that Summit, Speedway and JEGS all carried oval exhaust tube and mandrel bends, but as Navy says it's a lot more expensive. Robert, your idea of building from round stock, then flattening would be a lot cheaper if time's not an issue.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.
