Just keep your eyes open on the for sale forum, I've seen 3 pair bought and sold in the last couple of weeks

I think you guys were right about the Pypes muffler rattle, once i cut it off it really sounds like theres something small rattling around in it, likely some weld splatter or something. So i cut off the pypes and will be clamping on the magnaflows in the morning. It sounds pretty good right now with just the cats but its too loud to leave it that way

That's what I thought it might be a bit of welding slag, let me know how the new magnaflows work out, drone wise you may need to add a small resonator, but it looks like you are running out of space to put it... bob.
PS. any vibration or body/frame contact, with engine torque twist or harmonic vibration on trip/move?

Well i got my first check last week. Living in Texas my whole life i was a bit surprised. Federal Income Tax + Ohio Income Tax + City Income Tax?!! WTF! Texas just has federal. Where's all this extra tax money going? Ohio isnt that big! So the lower cost of living has been pretty much equalized by the new taxes, boo!

Bob, I think you're right on the welding slag It sounds like theres something in it about the size of a small BB. I cant believe the amount of rattle that little piece created at standstill. There's an area of the passenger side exhaust that is pretty close to the body/frame. I think it's about 1/4" and comes into contact occasionally when turning and going over bumps, like into a garage or something. That is the side i pulled off at one point though and with the ball type clamps it's pretty likely that when i put it back on i didnt check the clearance. When im under there today i'll probably loosen the ball clamps, pull the pipe away from the body a bit more, then tighten them back up.

The only other thing is with the temporary turn downs. They are currently pointed straight down which i imagine also increases in cabin sound. Im going to twist them to exit to the side and down, hopefully that'll also quiet down the in cabin noise, i'll just have get a muffler shop to weld the hanger back onto the tip in the new location

Re: Side Exhaust + Shorty Headers Project

Im loving the magnaflows so far! At wide open throttle they sound just like the Pypes, but at idle and on the highway they are just perfect. Now i just need some new tires, these BFG MT's are humming on the hwy, couldnt really hear it over the exhaust before

Re: Side Exhaust + Shorty Headers Project

Cool, So you wont need the reso. What is the model # and dimensions of the magnaflows? You used 2.5" pipe all the way back, any reason not to go larger? say 3"? Bob.

Re: Side Exhaust + Shorty Headers Project

I got the magnaflow 10436. Not only does it have a longer case length than the Pypes, but the internal construction seemed to have more to it than the Pypes. I went 2.5" just because of the lack of room and the 90 degree bends i needed. Plus i figured i probably have less than half the back pressure of the stock setup, so a little is probably a good thing

Re: Side Exhaust + Shorty Headers Project

It's going well so far. Those marine stainless tips aren't on just yet. They are heavy so I plan to put an extra screw through the side skirt in the wheel well just in case. I got the new wheels and tires, the ride is perfect now! I have all new r1 brakes and rotors in my living room, so I plan to install those Saturday and while the wheels are off I'll add that screw into the side skirt and put on the tips. Then some day next week head to the muffler shop and make that last 6" connection. When I swapped the mufflers I had them weld the new hanger to the muffler instead of to the tip, so now I can just loosen the clamps and modify as needed. Once I get the brakes and tips on I'll post some pics. Not sure if I mentioned it before but I also spray painted pretty much the whole system with black flame proof paint, so now the pipes and mufflers aren't as easily visible from the sides which is nice. I've had 3 people at the new job tell me it sounds great, which is always nice to hear.
