I believe you are correct, I may have made a booboo there. Anyways, I've got a good pick of the factory exaust, just give me a minute to find it. Thanks. LoLIts hard for me to believe that first picture is the factory one. The welds and design are a bit too "different" to be OEM.
I could be wrong but going out on a limb and saying thats aftermarket.
Sounds like you're on to something there, might have to borrow some of your idea.If they come out with something like the Trust DD exhaust I'll buy it. Single 3" from the cat to a single in dual out resonator to 2 2.5" out the rear, you'd need 2 nice dual tips to get the 4 look but it would be as unrestricted as a single exhaust with awesome ground clearance. It also wouldn't be too raspy. Make it titanium and it'll weigh under 10 lbs
Yes, it will help any engine that has 2 banks. This is because it allows equal exaust pressure to be obtained through the crossing of the 2 sides. Therefore, if one side is flowing more freely than the other side, it will have an opportunity to gain from that by using that other exaust pipe thus reducing back pressure. In the end keeping both sides equal allowing a freer flowing system.I wonder if an H or X pipe for the V6 will have any benefit in performance like it can with the V8s... It seems there would be plenty of room for one.. hmmm..
