    sorry I have no pics but down the passenger side is easy, at least with 2.5" pipe. Angle up and around the Tcase between the frame and the case, works just fine, plenty of room.

    Why do you want to run dual 3"? 2.5" is plenty for a 454 let alone a 350

    If you want to run true duals, I would go with 2.25 pipe. Are you going to run mufflers or glasspacks? Too big of pipe and your going to lose your low end torque. I have headers and true duals with glass packs on my 85 K10 and its plently loud. Are you planning on doing it yourself?


    not a great picture, but when I go down to my shop later to work on it, I'll get a picture from underneath.

    I would go grab some pics for ya but my camera flash sucks balls lol :doah: Im running hooker longtubes into 3" true duals, no muffs or cats, turned out before the rear tire. I had it installed with my old 203 in there... i just did a 205 swap and the exhaust is in the way of the side mount....but it can be reworked to fit without a problem.

    Hoping you aren't on dialup, but one of the pictures here Diesel duals shows the muffler arrangement.

    If I were doing exhaust again, I think I'd go straight towards a single pipe. It's just cheaper/easier to run, and doesn't hurt power when done right.
