Looks good. We need some exhaust options up front. Seems like everything out there is catback, but no one takes care of the Y-Pipe. Now if we could only get some decent headers that don't have to be modified and would work with dual cats.

If there is interest, I will have a header system made as well. I would need to have a decent amount of interest for the development and first run of product, but if there is interest here, I will provide purpose built SS headers.

Follow-up Post:

I have been running the first production pipe on my truck for about a week now, and I like it. I have only run the catted system so far. It fit up very nicely, leaves enough clearance to run a D2 style front drive shaft, and has an aggressive sound.

I know the sound was a point of concern for many here, and I will say when I first installed my new system, I did suspect a leak. I fit and re-fit the pipes many times, and have come to realize that there is actually no external leak, but what you can hear are the exhaust pulses actually sort of echoing inside the pipe. This is due to the larger diameter pipe and header style flange construction. The sound slightly resembles that "dry" hotrod exhaust note on old well built musclecars. It also slightly amplifies the note produced by my NRP cat-back system. The Off Road pipes will be louder.

Also addressed is the O2 sensor placement on the drivers side. It has been rotated slightly inboard rather than outboard, and actually offers decent access to the sensor.

Good product to bring to market. Be careful selling the "off road" pipes. I'm sure big brother is watching somehow.

"Off Road" pipes are just that, for "off highway use only" of course. I have had a few customers ask me for such things in the past for travel through Mexico and Central America, but untill now have had no real solution to offer them. This way they can of course stop at the border and cat up before traveling US highways.

I will be discussing the options with my fabricators later this week about the headers.

I'm about to pay a local shop to weld up a complete exhaust system...I'd rather buy this step. Can we have an update? I need a system soon (I'm hoping to purchase this week).

Sorry for the vanishing act lately, I've not abandoned the project, just the opposite in fact. The first few stock items I recieved were not up to the same standards as the prototype I have currently on my truck. I have 6 sets in stock right now, and have sold 2 out of the shop already. I have come to find out that they will only work if your truck is lifted 2" (OME lift) or more. This is apparently a by-product of trying to create extra catalyst - drive shaft clearance. I have some pics of a RRC LWB version on the website right now if you would like to see a production version. I have a stock height pipe system being made up right now, I hope to have that available in the next week or so.

On another note, the header system can be done, however the cost seems to be a bit prohibitive. As it stands now, a pair of SS headers will run about $1400.00. Obviously that price can come down based on the number of header systems that get produced in the first run. They will be made to work with my existing cats or off road pipes, and my existing intermediate pipes and the "Y" pipe section to connect with any widely available "cat back" exhaust. I have counted 2 or 3 interested members here so far, but I will need to run about 10 sets in the first production run to make them affordable. So what would one deem reasonable for SS direct fit headers that will carry a lifetime warranty?
