Check with Borla or Gibson.

I think this is the same issue Rob has encountered - and I don't think he's found anybody that makes one for the dual inlet. You might check with him

I've had no luck. You just need to buy the mufflers seperately and have a good shop fabricate the piping. That's your only option. Borla USED to make a dual inlet stainless steel catback but they discontinued it over 2 years ago at the minimum. Why, I don't know.

You're better off doing it that way, anyway. Most likely it'll be cheaper and you'll get to choose what pipe diameter you want. I've seen Flowmaster mufflers for $38 (40 series) and I can't imagine the pipe work would be much more than $150.

What i might do is find a used late model 99 or 00 XSport, And buy the Ypipe & Cats. Then i could get an exuast. I'm going to a junk yard friday.

More than likely not. since you might have dual going into a single out. You might want to go to modern exhaust.

Since your from Michigan. His name is AL. there in madison heights. E-mail me at [email protected] and I'll send you the phone number. also I have pics on the exhaust work that he did...............Take a look...........Custom jobs are always( in my opion ) better anyway. You get what you want. Not well I'll settle for that.............

im having this same problem. ive had a gibson exhaust sitting in my basement for over a month, waiting to find the time to put it on. went to put it on last weekend to realize i have the same problem with the dual inlet.



im wondering if i took that gibson exhaust to a shop, would they be able to fab me up a Y piece to make this work? either that or ill have to send the exhaust back, hopefully they refund my money, and get a complete custom setup done.



anyone think they'll just be able to fab up a Y piece to the gibson setup?

yeah, the pipe diameters are 2.25



i just went to a shop to find out if they can fab up a Y pipe.



i need to find out the total length the Y needs to be and measure from center to center of the cat pipes.



i dont know how to do this without actually installing at least the gibson muffler to take measurements.



can anyone help me on this?
