    Re: What\'s up with this muffler routing?

    If there was only one of them I'd say it was like a camaro muffler in the top on both sides and out the bottom of one side (think of the muffler sideways not vertical). But since there's two mufflers like that you got me?> /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    My guess, some one got a smokin deal on mufflers and jerry riged it from there.

    Still looks really screwy though, especially on a dually /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    Wouldn't you think that the mufflers should have the single end as the inlet, and the dual end as the outlet?

    Re: What\'s up with this muffler routing?

    Sure they aren't single in dual out mufflers?
    I'd deffinately be making sure bolts are tight,distributer isn't on backwards,not oil in the radiator,water in the crankcase ect... /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    Doesn't sound out of the ordinary. Has a little crackle to it when you get on it, but not very loud.

    They ARE single in/dual out muffs. As stated above, most likely from an 80's Camaro/Trans Am/Firebird. My '86 TA's muff was just like that.

    Just like the picture says.
