    Has anyone clocked a 241 in a diesel truck with a 700r4? if so, how did you run your exhaust. There doesn't seem to be enough room between the case and frame to run it down the right side. thanks

    I don't know why no one has thought of this before but why not route the exhaust on the other side?
    No tcase on that side, the gas lines and brake lines are on the passenger side.
    the only thing I can see being a hassle to figure out is the shifter on the side of the tranny, I will look tomorrow to see if there is room to go there.
    :D

    It looks like there is, I just don't feel like having my whole exhaust redone. too much $$ right now.

    I had the same problem when I boxed the frame. My only option was to do it on the driver side. I have seen some setups where the exhaust comes down real low to clear the case but it looks like crap and will hit everything. here are some pics of mine. i have a 2 into one 50 series flowmaster.

    Thanks for the pics, Danny. that was my thought of how to run it that way. I Might have a bit o problem with my front shaft hitting the crossover pipie though. guess i'll have to take it in and see what can be done.

    Just tell them to mount it as high as possible. the first one i had done was too low and would hit. this one is mounted a tad higher. worse case senario make the crossover pipe with some flanges so you can take it out when you work on the trans.

    That is what i was thinking. unbolt from the manifold and then on the left hand side just after the bend taking it to the rear. A heat shield between the torque converter wouldn't hurt either. The HMMWVs have this setup with the heat shield only about an inch from the flywheel/dust cover and a 1/2 inch space between the shield and the pipe.
