I've been irrigating for the last 3 days so progress is limited.

I did get the exhaust over the cross members and headed in the right direction.
I ordered a 2 1/2" in and 2 1/2" out muffler and exhaust kit and for some reason they sent me a 3" in and 2 1/2" out muffler. I don't guess it makes any difference other than a little more time to make the reducer pipe so we are going on with it.

Maybe the larger inlet muffler will act as an expansion chamber and give me another 50 hp. OR NOT.

Maybe I can finish this tomorrow.

A lot of factory systems use a 3" single into a dual outlet 2.5" muffler, so it looks sorta like factory on there Pops. Will probably help it breath anyway, since both sides are dumped into it, then the cooler exhaust at the muffler is split up.

It will work I'm sure. I considered running duals on it but room is too tight under this thing.

I had to have the rear bumper on to get the tail pipes where I want them but I didn't want to take it back off . But it wasn't painted yet,
So today I cleaned up both front and rear bumpers, mixed up my secondary paint color and sprayed them early this morning.

I managed to get them installed with out marring the fresh paint. I'm liking this Summit Racing
Hot Rod Flat paint. It goes on great and dries to touch in no time. Not to mention its cheap.

Now I can run the tail pipes, Maybe tomorrow.
