    I have a friend that is running glass packs off of his stock manifolds. It sounds really good and I want to get dual, but don't have the money for headers and all that stuff. The question is.......where could I get 3" pipes that come off the manifolds and would stop over the rear axle or so. I don't want it sticking out. You guys probably can't help much unless you live in Wichita, KS., but thanks anyway.

    Duals work fine from a stock manifold, but nowhere around here will bend 3" pipe. They want to sell you 2 1/2".
    Good luck

    Unless you have one bad ass motor i don't think you would need duel 3" exhaust.The 2 1/2" should be fine.

    I got 2.25 inch aluminized duals from my manifolds all the way back out the sides behind the rear tires for $125 including turbo mufflers from MIDAS. Of course, it helps that I knew most of the guys there already. LOL TIP- Take beer at closing time on Fri. or Sat. and make friends. A little beer money can sometimes pay off as a good investment.
