Ok, so I've been pricing out true duals here in Florida and these people are nuts!! haha. The average price for true duals 2.5", cutting out the third cat and resonator, with two super 44 flowmasters and tips is running me around $600... So I been trying to price out single exhaust to see if I can ge this to work in stead. Here's what I'm thinking...

1) Have the shop cut the third cat and resonator and run a single 2.5" pipe to whichever location would be best to fit a single inlet 2.5" dual oulet 2.25" super 10 series flowmaster then run two 2.25" pipes from that to the back with some nice tips...

OR!!

2) Doing everything up top but with a single inlet 2.5" dual oulet 2.5" super 44 flowmaster...

I want to pronounce my presence and get some performance as well, but I'm having to do this on a budget... What are your opinions on running the single 2.5 dual 2.25 as opposed to the single 2.5 dual 2.5?

budget and exhaust dont really work well together. i have built and help build several exhaust systems. i too will be putting a true dual exhaust on my cougar this spring/summer. in all honesty, $600 in not all that bad.

i would say to check this out. get the tubing kit from them and find out how much a shop wants to simply put that on for u. it will save you some in labor.

ok, and I know most everyone one here, based on the research I've done has installed the 40 series out back or maybe the super 44's, but has anyone trifled with the super 10's!? I know they are prolly LOUD azz mufflers, but I wanna piss old people off!! haha... plus it's a good ol' boy network here in the boonies so anything ford or chevy pretty much gets a pass on the laws!! haha...

For $600 you aren't getting mandrel bends either. I spent almost $300 for my 3" flowmaster kit to make my true duals. Worth the money but you need a good welder. Save your money, don't cheap out on it. I went though 4 different systems before I got it right for sound and performance. Good luck.

Yeah! and I looked at the quote they gave me and FIRST! it was only for 2.25" piping instead of the 2.5" most you guys are getting... SECOND!! they were trying to charge me $154 a piece!! for two flowmaster 40 series... I can get super 10's from dicount auto for $75 a piece! I'm gonna do what was said earlier and piece it together with the manderelbendsystem... then just find someone to do the cutting and welding... Those ARE!! high flow cats on that system right!?

I did Magnaflow cats on one system and then the new bullet style Magnaflow cats on the final system i did. The bullet style were very expensive but helped a lot in placement in the tight quarters under the car and help us place them further away from the transmission. The further away, the better to help keep heat down.
