    Hangers + H-pipe = the stiffist exhaust I have ever had. I can grab any part of my exhaust and wiggle my whole rig! solid :D

    Very nice my brother. You don't really mean SOLID though do you? If the entire exhaust is rigidly mounted you are going to force it to crack somewhere as the engine twists in it's mounts, and as the frame twists when you're wheeling.

    I saw a couple hangers that had small rubber mounts in them in your pics, but was wondering if the guy installed any of that braided flex pipe near the headers?? I'm thinking about using those next time I re-do my exhaust.. :thinking:

    Not that solid, it doesn't wiggle like most setups I have had in the past.
    All the mounts have the rubber bushings. My engine mounts are ORDs and my 454 does not move at all. It rocks the whole truck when you rap the throttle.
    I hear ya about flex and stuff and no just regular pipe thru the whole setup. Time will tell I supose :D Heck if I bust it then I know something different needs to be used :D hehehhee

    Thanks YJ, Pismo will be perfect for the first run w/ the 454. I can go slow or fast and pleanty of wheel spinning. I only have about 10miles on the engine so I have to keep that in mind and not throttle too much all at once :D :D
    Snap some pics of you exhaust when you get it back :cool1:
