H-bodies don't have the U-bend. Only the W-bodies.

In his defense, it wasn't self-appointed. :P

FYI, we're talking about the U-bend downpipe at the firewall. NOT the gentle turn in the intermediate pipe beneath the back seat (between the cat and muffler).

You took the wheel numbers and added ~20% to get those numbers? Not trying to be a smartass, Im just curious if you really dyno'd your engine.
