    I need to have a new "y" pipe built and am looking for some ideas. My stock one is now in the way after the lift and clocking of the t-case. Let me see what you guys have done.

    Here's mine, goes up over the rear t=case output/driveshaft. From the photo, it looks too clost to the D/S, but it's actually high enough that it'll never hit. I like this setup as I could drop the tranny/xfer without dicking around with the exhaust.

    Hey Matt..

    By any chance do you have a side shot that shows how much room from that Y to the dif?

    I'd love to run mine that way, but I need to cram a hiflow cat in and maybe a 40, 50 series behind it..

    Go to autozone. Buy an elbow. Cut out the y-pipe where it hits. Cut out less than the length of the elbow. Make sure that the cut out section is shorter than the new elbow. Spread the pipe a few inches. Weld in the elbow. Bought me an extra inch of clearance for about $5 and 10 mins.

    Does this, along with the other pic help? I run a 50 series and the tailpipe dumps right behind the rear axle, There might be room for a cat.

    Got any pictures? I think I understand what you are saying, but want to make sure. I might go this way since I don't want to spend the money on a Y pipe.
