I have a '91 Ford truck with 'semi' dual exhaust like yours, just the back half. It has a 5 litre, [Windsor 302, mostly] V-8. It looks like it has duals and it sounds like it has duals. You'll be just fine with that set-up.

Default Progress.......

After a week of tomorrows I finally got the exhaust finished up.
Too many other irons in the fire.

Next up is to convert the in tank fuel pump to one that will supply the TBI
with the right pressure and a return line.

On my 46 both pipes go to the passenger side like yours, the mufflers are standing upright, and then proceed to the back. Full duals, but it makes it real easy to put in an H-pipe. You have a bigger trans and crossmembers and a transfer case, but it looks like you have room to do duals if your heart was set on it.

I thought along those lines for a minute. Then I decided for what I have planned for this thing it wasn't worth it. KISS is now my middle name.

I found out the fuel pump for a 2006 Dakota has a 80psi max pressure with a 58psi system pressure which is perfect for the FI Tech TBI. With a slight modification to the mounting flange [cut the locating tab off] I was able to use the plastic threaded tank nut from the 1995 donor tank.

Installed a return line bung fitting and a vent/roller valve fitting in the top of the tank.

A second 60 mile round trip to the big city for more 6an fittings and a few minutes in the morning to finish plumbing the lines, install a pressure gauge and I have it made.

I'm thinking I might be ready to fire this puppy for the first time by the end of next week!!!
