Dual exhaust

I want to put either a "Y" dual exhaust or a true dual exhaust (STRAIGHT PIPE) on my 97 f250 Crew cab. does anyone make them, if so who? or would it just be better to fab some up myself, or if anyone has fabed them up before let me know.

Since you have a turbo you can not put a true dual exhuast on your truck. You will have to run a y pipe at the back of the truck and then have your dual exhaust.

A guy in a 97 or 98 PSD passed me on the highway last week and he had what looked like twin 3 or 4 inch pipes coming straight out the back. It sounded pretty mean and looked good too. It did not look like any type of factory made exaust, it looked hand made. I didn't look like regular exaust material either, it was a little thicker metal. The one upside to a side/angled exit dual exaust is you can get maximum smoke coverage behind you, and the sound radiates a little better like if you're in a tunnel and want to shake the walls!

I ran dual 3" straight out the back years ago, and it sounded great with the stock motor with the cat and no muffler. When I put my new 4" turbo back on the truck with the other mods, I bought a 4" to dual 3" splitter and connected to my old duals out the rear. It kept the tailgate and back bumper covered with black soot, not to mention that it covered the front of the camper and my drag car when I towed them. I put the 4" tailpipe on it that came with the new exhaust, and I also added a 6" tip. It wound up running a little better and sounding a lot better. Plus I can now see the smoke in the mirror when I mash on it! Not sure, but I think it dropped the EGT's a little as well. HTH.
