Hey everyone, ive been recently looking into redoing my exhaust on my 97 2 door since its current exhaust is garbage. i ould like to have 2.5 inch pipes from the y-pipe back with high flow cats and some kinda loud mufflers (most likely thrush welded till i can afford magnaflows) my problem is i cant seem to find an after market y-pipe. since the factory one is so small, i want to upgrade to 2.5 inch. and has anyone here made a dual exhaust for a 2 door? i wanna do true dual from the y pipe. my friend has a pipe bender if needed. just looking for input, thanks.

dude it is everything in the photo the cross over pipes, hi flow cats and rear flange. several use the new cat assembly as the need to get new converters arises. and we dont cross pipe them at all. not practical here anyway.

Call pacesetter, get some longtubes and their crossover pipe, its BOLT in, then hit any manufacture you want for a bolt in 3" cat back.
Buy a high flow cat of your choosing thats correct diameter for the Y pipe and bolt the stuff in...
It will put you in basic form, headers, oversized Y pipe, to a single 3" catback, Cheap and very effective for a stock or even mild performance engine.
This isnt rocket science.

You will come out with a complete new exhaust front to rear, gain a large amount of power and sound.
If you get part numbers for these 4 parts and shop around you will come in WELL under 1k.

If you try and do some trickery with a Xpipe it will need to be custom, as the x pipe must be equal distance from both manifold or collector flanges to see its true gains.
So go with Simple and efficient.

okay i didnt see anything about what kinda cats that came with. ive looked into catback systems but havent found much that i liked and theyre kinda pricey. is duals all the way back a bad idea? im just trying to find out whats best so i dont spend a bunch of money and end up unhappy since im on a tight budget.
