I was going to do some searching over at LS1tech on this subject but saw this thread. Wondering what the concensus is on pipe size. 2.5" from collectors out, or muffler out, 3" all the way?
I made my own long tube headers, with 30-36" tubes into 3 collectors. I can't run an X-pipe but can fit a H pipe about 10-12 inches behind the collectors and then run to dual mufflers, driveshaft loop and stance get in the way of an X-pipe. Also want to run exhaust all the way to the rear lower quarters and dump down, for the nice sleeper look.
Any advice on pipe size muffler selection for the quiet sound. 00 LS1/4L60e, Comp XR281HR/112LS 918 springs, LS6 intake, Fuddle 3200 TC, March underdrive dampner, 1 3/4 longtube headers,
