Well... a lot of us here run the 2.5" dual setup from Mandrel Exhaust Systems (trubendz). There's a long thread about it with videos and sound clips in the parts for sale section titled "mandrel bent exhaust".

EDIT: In fact, it looks like one of the mods edited the title and stickied it. It's now "Mandrel Exhaust Systems" and it's the second sticky in the parts for sale section.

Suggestion? Take the Mandrel Exhaust System system, but swap the X pipe for a DIDO muffler (a good one). Have the shop weld all THAT up, but use straight extensions where the rear mufflers should go, not welded, but clamped on.

That'll be loud at first, but you can tune it easily by clamping on a Dynomax this week - don't like that? Thrush glass packs next week, then a set of Borlas, etc.

so the 3 to 2.5" setup is no good or now that they make a true dual set up that would be the way to go.

No good? Won't say that - there's advantages and disadvantages to it.

The true dual is what I'd opt for, ayep, but that's because I'm an old geezer and have a knee-jerk reaction :diablo: It's not based on any science.

Cool thanks guys im going to look into true duals but only for the right price. My guy at the shop was saying that he could do the 3"-2.5 setup for $215. So if i can get the duals for the same or little bit more I'll go for the dual.
