    I need to install a H-pipe on my blazer, but I can't figure out where to put it. I have true duals with turbo mufflers that are turned out in front of the back tires. the trany and t-case are in the way in front of the mufflers, will a h-pipe work behind the mufflers? Any info and pics you have would help me out a bunch.

    H pipe behind mufflers would be worthless.
    For crossover pipes to be effective they need to be as close to the exhaust collector as possible. It's to help scavenging gases from inside the cylinder. Once you get the far back, it's not gonna do you any good.

    I always run crossovers on my street cars, but I just don't see enough room under the hood of my K5 to put an H pipe without sacrificing tons of clearance.

    You might pick up 10 horsepower with a mild motor, but I don't think it would be worth the extra clutter for you.

    I set one of mine up this way. The "H" is easily removable for service.
