Dual exhaust

Stack kit ran under the truck. Don't know how I feel about it, what's everyones opinions? Truck is mainly used for towing, stacks aren't an option when towing customers cars.

I like it. How did you get the exhaust on the drivers side?

It's kinda neat. Pretty original
Just curious though, why wouldn't stacks be an option? Isn't the whole point of them to toss the smoke up and over the trailer?

That said, I'm not a huge fan of stacks so really I'm just wondering

It's the universal stack kit from Diamond eye, I talked to their engineer at SEMA and told him what I was thinking about doing and he just smiled and said "send me pictures". 5" pipe to the T pipe which crosses over right in front of the fuel tank. Then the 90 degree elbows to the Aussies. I have chrome turn out pipes I can throw on there whenever I want, just have to weld the hangers on for those.

I haul customers cars on a 18ft flat bed open car hauler, I don't want any smoke close to some of these rides, stacks also take up bed space. I ran a single stack for a while and got tired of it. Just figured i'd try something new and see what people think.

I'm not convinced that this set up would get less smoke on the cars than stacks would.

I guess a no-smoke towing tune is the best bet.

What kind of cars are you hauling? Any cool pics? That's a nice lookin obs you got there btw

Thanks!

I have stock injectors and stock turbo with Wildman tunes so the smoke isn't too bad but it adds up over an hour+ long trip. I don't dog it unless I need to and only then does it put out excessive smoke. Just towed a 59 Cadillac to the shop other day. The stacks take the air right over whatever is on the trailer but the side pipes put it more towards the ground. I'd love to show you some pics. If you have an email I can send them to then please PM me and I will send some over. I'd like to keep the shop separate from the diesel stuff since we do classic cars only. But here's a sneak peek......

I'm sure it is, but that set up looks neat if anything, but I would have put it farther up so it looked more like side pipes instead of being so far back

Yes it's 2 wheel drive. I would like for it to be tucked up a little higher but that's how they came out. It was just something different to do and now I know how I'd do it different next time. Thanks for the comments.
