I've been looking at the cheap catback but wanted to have an x-pipe setup. I put together this catback;

Pypes x-pipe
Thrush welded mufflers
Dynomax direct-fit tailpipes
4 muffler clamps


This setup is $325 shipped from JEGS.


Question is, has anyone used the Thrush welded mufflers?

if budget is what you are after, you can beat that price by a few pennies with:

dynomax intermediates from rockauto
magnaflow stainless x pipe of amazon
Spintech prostreets off ebay

$315.

or switch out the muffs and drop down to 225-250

I'll have to check them out, just not a fan of Spintech mufflers.

Thanks.

You are still going to need about 24" per side, to get it to the bumper. And odds are, that each side will need a 45* elbow at the end, since the dynomax OTA pipes tuck up very well. If you want the tips to come straight out, you will need an S pipe setup. Hedman sells them as header extensions.

The pypes X pipe setup is going to require less fab work than the Dynomax pipe / magnaflow X pipe. Unless the Magnaflow's spacing is just perfect, and lines up with both dynomax pipes on the spot. But I don't think it will. The dynomax pipes on my Fleetwood, didn't sit 100% parallel.

I have Thrush Welded muffs on my wagon and they sound alright. Slightly Flowmaster like but not as tinny. I have them dumped at the axle though and they are DRONEEEEEEE city.

Guess I need to charge up the camera and make a clip for the sticky thread.
