    I am 'trying' to put in a Summit exhaust package that I bought to hook up to my 3 inch headers. There is very little room to spare.

    I was wondering if anyone who has put in the same system has any pictures of their install. This is a whole lot bigger in circumference than what was on there to begin with and it looks difficult to figure out how everything is to fit.

    Any tips? Thanx.

    These are 2.5inch that work awesome on my BB. No clearance issues. (especially when hanging on wall). Headers are 2 1/8 - 3 1/5 Hooker SComps.

    I have 3" duals that go over the axle and dump behind the rear tires. They fit great, but these were built locally and the guy doing the work really took his time and did several compound bends. I have thought about seeing if he might be interested in making some copys of mine to sell. I heard that there were some fitment issues with the kits out now.My exaust cost $350 with a set of super 40s. He also took the time to weld my collectotr ring to the 3" pipe so there was no reduction at all coming out of the hedders. He does great work..Johnny

    Thanks for the help guys..Ted, those pictures were extremely helpful!

    I already ran into a problem with a universal shackle kit that I had to modify so that the dual exhaust could run where it needed to...a lot of working overhead. This thing is going to sound awesome when I'm done. I'm really hiting the home stretch now..been a LONG time in the making.
