    I was wondering if anyone has a TH350 trany a 205 transfer case, and also 3" dual pipes? If so, Should there be any trouble getting it to all fit? My mechanic has been giving me trouble for the past month or so about all of it fitting. I blew the trany, so I wanted to go from the TH700 to the TH350 and a 208 to a 205 to make it complete. After it had been at his shop for a couple of weeks (not being touched) I went out there to see what the trouble was and he told me that it wouldn't fit with my new pipes (3" pipes, 36" glass packs, out 3 1/2" tips). Finally after it had sat out there for a month, I said to cut the &@^* pipes and I would take it back to get them put back on. Well, two weeks have past ahd it still hasn't been touched. I just thought I might ask someone else for some more info beside the fact that I need a new mechanic. Thanks.

    I run a SM 465 and 205 and I also have dual 2 1/2" pipes...there's tons of room around my pipes. I could have 3" no problem.

    The reason that I chose 3" pipes was because I had planned to put headers on my truck before the trany coughed up it's insides. I have a definate increase in horse power and a couple more miles to the gallon if you drive it easy. Not to forget the greatest sound at high RPMs.
