    Here's a few pics of how I did mine. It's all tucked in pretty tight. Really close to the T/C but no issues with heat at all. Headers are Hooker super comp, Y is flowmaster and muffler flowmaster 70. Not any room for a cat though.

    Do you have a part # for that Y-pipe. I really like that setup.

    The Y collector is flo-y250300 from Summit. Around $40. Rest of the y pipe is from mandrel bends, stuff from the muffler shop, and homemade flanges.

    Bringing an old thread back from the dead. But I really like this setup. My truck had dual exhaust since I purchased it. It had two different diameter pipes coming off the headers with worn out glasspacks and gorilla welds everywhere. So I need a nice new setup and I like the idea of one muffler. I'm not sure what a stock y-pipe setup looks like and where its run. Does anyone see any downfalls to this setup before I go ahead to the muffler shop and get it bent up for me?
