    How difficult is it to make dual exhaust for my burb. 87 1/2 ton 4x4. I have made exhausts for my cars, but havent even looked under my truck to really look, but I was wondering if anyone has done it, and how hard?

    shouldn't be any harder than a K5.

    I see burbs with dual exhaust all the time...only tight spot is on the passenger side going around the front driveshaft and t-case, but other than that, piece of cake.

    if you want, you can look up under my K20, and see how its done. the pasenger side goes a little farther out then the drivers side, ( closer to the frame rail) but it fits, and works.

    Don't forget to keep that heat away from you fuel lines too.

    its not really a problem on mine. the fuel lines live inside the frame rails where they should, and the exhaust lives several inches from that.

    also, you could always find a truck that came with duals and look at that... both of my 454 subs came with dual exhaust, ( although they are 2wd's) the way my K20 does it (home fabbed exhaust system by previous owner) is it sticks the exhaust pipes abovet eh Tcase crossmembers, so that the exhaust is tucked up neatly between the frame rails. of course, in the tradition of all X-treme exhaust systems, this one uses flowmaster 2 chambers, and terminates under the middle seat.

    It's real simple. Summit Racing will sell you a complete kit from dynomax for less than $200.00. The only thing I wasn't very happy with was the mufflers. Not very durable at all. I used those for about a year and later replaced them with flowmasters.

    Dan,

    Give Summit Racing a call and tell them what you need. This kit is not listed on their catalog. Only reason I came across this kit was by giving them a call. If you can avoid it get flowmasters instead of dynomax mufflers.
