Exhaust question.

If you are using the wide exhaust clamps as opposed to the standard exhaust clamps does it still require you to flare the pipe or can they butt up against each other?

Still gotta flare them, otherwise the pipes will flex at the joint, as the strength comes from the two pipes fitting together. If you look at a band clamp (wide clamp) you'll see that one side is flared. One of these days, I'm gonna swap my U-bolt clamps out for band clamps (they seal much better...hence why they're used on semi trucks).

As far as the intake goes, check out RiffRaff Diesel's 6637 kit. That would probably be the best bang for your buck.

Thank you sir. I will call around tomorrow and see if there is someone in the area who can flare them. I'll check out the intake as well.

The other thing you could do is get a union pipe fitting for your exhaust, thats what i had to do with my exhaust. Right after the downpipe then used 2 band exhaust clamps there. Man those things are so much nicer than the u-bolt clamps. The union makes it so much easier to put together, im sure they werent very much to buy either. good luck man.

Thanks. I may not have to flare the pipe. I may be able to pull the muffler out of the existing flares. Either way, I'll post a pic or two when it's done.

I know this isn't correct, but on my exhaust I just butted the pipes together and used wide band clamps. I then installed a clamp-on hanger right next to the muffler to isolate movement. It has been over 10,000 miles and the muffler is still completely tight.
