Default Exhaust setup

I know that Will has the magnaflow muffler, what is the part number? How did you set it up? Stock tips? Any pics? When I was looking at the Camaro/Firebird mufflers it showed that you would have the one inlet on one side, and the two outlets on the same side, opposite. Wouldn't this be constrictive to make a pipe go all the way around to the other side of the car? If you had any advice I would appreciate it.

I dont think it would be that bad but I have a similar muffler and how I want them to install it is have both pipes on the same side so it looks more stock and flows better.

Yea, that'* what I was thinking, but it would look stupid to have the extra gap on the drivers side area.

Yes it would, you would have to take it to a body shop to get it filled in to make it look blended it but I guess you could just go with the long pipe thing which shouldnt hurt performance at all but it may not sound at its full potential. But I wouldnt know I dont even have my stuff installed yet

Believe it or not no. Open a muffler up some time and you'll see all sorts of baffles in there. These actually help the exhaust gases flow out more evenly.

I have a Magnaflow Cat, Resonator, and Muffler. Standard F-body muffler with an inlet and outlet on one end, and an outlet on the other, mounted transverse just like the stocker. It'* called a crossflow muffler.

I strongly suggest using a resonator with a 3" ID (to prevent restriction) with this setup on a 92 or 93. I had a resonator installed during WCBF '04, and I'm glad I did. Turning heads every day is cool for awhile, but becomes annoying. It'll still growl good if I romp it.

92 and 93 did not get a factory installed resonator like later years.

There are a few exhaust install pics somewhere around here on my car.

Magnaflow also sells a really neat unit that takes less space than a traditional cat/resonator. It'* a combination unit with both devices in one. It'* a savings in money and space in the intermediate pipe, and would be cheaper to install.

12266 Magnaflow.

Also look here for other alternatives, ignore the 95 specific stuff.

I have a 12268 for my one sided dual setup, in other words "stock" looking.
