    Finally took off the two catalytic convertors and stock muffler from the old single exhaust system under my '87 Utility bed truck. Put dual 2 1/2" pipes under it with cheap Thrush turbo mufflers.

    Now, I can actually hear the exhaust /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif, and it sounds more like a V8 instead of a 6 cylinder from the tailpipes.

    Feels like it has a bit more power now, too. The 454 needed a bit more breathing room.

    Like an idiot, I drove around today in the cold weather with my window down just so I could listen to the new sound.

    Why would they ever put two convertors on a truck? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    The two converter thing sound too much like a Ford idea. A friend of mine has a 1990 F-150 that recently sh*t the bed. Come to find out, the cats were plugged and the only way they would fix it is to replace them both at $300 a piece!
