True Duals on HEMI XK

This Saturday was the final step, started it last week and had a set up I wasnt happy with so changed it. First Ill start with initial idea/set up, cut factory y pipe, welded 2.5" pipes back over rear axle and had Jones Full Boar single chambers welded in. This was waaaay to loud and raspy, sounded like a POS pick-u from the 80's.. Here are some pics of that set up.






As I said I did not like this set up so after some planning/research I bought a Flowmaster 40 D/I D/O muffler to weld into place and welding straight pipes back. I wasnt sure if I was going to keep the rear set up with single chambers but ended up going with out them. As the week progressed I did more research and came across IMCO's Performance 50 muffler, which is a cross between the 40 and 50 Flow, so I bought it and did a test on which one I liked more. I went with the IMCO cause of the deep, loud sound with no rasp! Straight pipes back after muffler with downspouts. Everything is hidden and tucked up where spare tire would be so you cant see it just a bit of down spouts. Final set up..





And a video of start up/rev..

Thats a clean setup. I really dig the sound. Haven't heard one like yours around California.
