Hypothetically if you had a 2.5" exhaust and you ran it into a piece of rectangle tubing(through the wide side) that was 1" tall x 6" wide x 8" long with the inlet and outlet as unrestrictive as possible it would still have the same air flow right? or do i need to take my pills again:dontknow:

there is turbulance and velocity to think about. im not an engineer or something, couldnt tell you how it would effect it, but if its just a mild engine on a 4x, id say giver.

are you going to use some heavy tubing in your exhaust?

i figure if the transition isn't very sharp then the disturbance to the air flow "should" be minimal course i could be talking out my ass, either way i figure doing this with a piece of 1X6 under the frame should stop it from getting crushed and let me side pipe it and open up alot more room under the truck.

cant keep the existing stuff new control arms are in the way

either way if i fuck it up i can always cut it off and put a down turn on it lol

If i go this route yeah, that section would be atleast .120 wall so it wont get crushed

it would have the same air flow, but, your transition between round and rectangular would cause back pressure

yeah i thought it might, soon as it hits it it forces it left or right no real way around that, atleast that i can think of

just sayin they have done over 20 of just for us and ive sent other peep's to em as well so they dont have to waste time figuring out how to do it it they just get it done ..they did the tj on coilover's we just finished and it was wayyyy worse that your set up as the link's were tighter @ the top and much longer with more travel ...


just sayin
