    Exhaust idea

    Alright, this is an idea I plan on doing with my Camaro when I drop a 350 in it, and headers. But, I'm sure there's someone out there that will try it first...

    True Dual exhaust. At the y-pipes, it would have a flap inside that would close off one side. So, for legal reasons, you could have it set so the exhaust goes through the cat and mufflers, then out the back. If you want proformance or much sound, just hit a switch and close the pipes to the cat / muffler and to the straight pipes. I don't know if this has been done. I got the idea from an episode of Trucks where they had a version of this for single exhaust, but with a different splitter.

    But, This would be sweet. Driving around, hit the switches and go to straight pipes.

    Just another thing to add to a bagged Blazer.

    Now, the biggest problem is space. I know this is possible, VERY possible, and its prolly been done, but I don't know if there would be enough room under my Camaro to not only route true dual exhaust with headers, but to have the straight pipes beside it.

    BTW, the picture is attached.

    There have been cutout products for a long long time. They used to have a lever that when pulled would open/close the exhaust off. But now that we have technology, there are products that have a cutout with an actuator that controls the flow. If you were paying attention to Trucks you would've realized that when he was routing the exhaust he installed them on the dual exhaust setup. One on each side :rofl:

    You should be able to install true dual exhaust, but the space required for the cutoff's might be a little dim.

    just on the subject of exhausts'....

    is it true from the headers if you twist (cross, flip...) the pipes and then go straight it'll add a hella lot of hp?

    I believe this is done on race cars (not wc, or busch, but like small round track...)

    I have a mr gasket cut out that im going to install after i change the engine. It has a length of steel cable and you just pull a little switch, like a bicycle brake.

    Here's the tail shot of my twin engined S10 truck with FOUR 2 1/4" pipes between the 18.5 Mickey Thompsons and out the back.

    I have thought about adding Y pipe cutouts but I need to get it running to see how loud it will be going down the road before I worry about making it louder.

    There are some products out onthe market that you can put in. "X" pipes or "H" pipes. They reduce backpressure.

    Seen it. beats the hell out of the old style. with the old cable driven jobs as time goes on the flapper gets harder and harder to work. rust,exhause sediment, etc....
