Why part one ? Because the parts ain't here yet supposed to ship today ..Sorry i like to Ramble sometimes too

Ok i searched and read and read and read some more and decided i wanted Vance and hines True Duals but was worried about bottom end.

Well i came across a Kit that turns the exhaust into a true duals and from a dyno run i saw and forgot to copy where it didn't lose any bottom end show 1 more footpound of torque over stock .. im not worried about gain just loss.

So i decided to try this out Basiclly it replaces the rear header and H Pipe.. so it moves the pipes away from you so you lose heat also .. the front pipe stays the same and you get a extension and new header for rear Cylinder..
pics on the kit when it comes in ..

Here is how ya take her down ..

Always Remember to remove youre fuse yada yada.. though i didnt i wanted to listen to the radio on it :)

Heres a Pic of my helper..



Ok Lets Start with the Saddle Bag



Once its out of the way then ya can get to the Slipons Loosen the Clamps at the header pipe and slip on and loosed the shields



After that remove the bolts from the rear mount and prepare for a lot of wiggling


once the muffler is removed loosen the heat shield on the top side of the H-Pipe



Who says they dont run hot . I had xieds on this before it had 200 miles Guess she was still a tad bit lean and hot .




Next loosen the mount and pipe clamp above the Trans



Remove this heat shield so as to gain room at the studs that hold the pipe to the cylinder



Huh little blue and hot again

Now to the other side



loosen the clamp and then the mount bolts



Then some more wiggling to remove the slip on then ya get this



Next remove this heat shield and stat a wiggling a whole lot of it your gonna get a work out for sure on these next few





Then back to the other side and remove the flange nuts and pop the flange loose from the cylinder head





Plug the hole so no little critters can get in



One H-pipe



time to get this far hour and a half or so .. and lots of wiggling a whole lot of that and pulling.

I was going to put the Mid frame heat shields on i got for Christmas but after seeing how much they would block thats for another day..

Hopefully Next weekend will be part 2 and finish on that one.

Didn't make it 2 since i managed to lose the exhust gasket so i couldn't finish so only 1.5 .. GRRRRR

Ok well here is the right side pipe extension the part has been ceramic coated thats why it is different color. Heat shields will cover it i left them off to check for Exhust leaks ..



After that add on the Slip on Torque everything to spec..



Transfer your O2 Sensor to the new head pipe



then remove the old Gasket and get mad as you can find the replacement gasket so your stuck .. well that ends it today

you can reuse most of the stock shields to cover the right side.. as for the elbow i havent made it that far but since it was pretty much a elbow b4 i think the stock will cover most of it .. Right now till i get a exhust gasket im stuck and cant say for sure

Ok last bit of Assembly done.. now when it warms up ill fire it up check for exhaust leaks and put the shields on


Here is the little bugger that caused the Delay



Pic of the cylinder with Gasket out



now gasket in



Then the header pipe do not tighten at this time just put in place and finger tighten down the flange nuts



Now to fix up the left side pipe .. if you look closely its out of round they really reef down when tighting this clamp .. the kit comes with another small pipe they call a mandrel but hey its a piece of pipe you hammer in to true up the pipe .. coat the mandrel in wd-40 goes in easier .



Install the now trued up pipe Do not tighten down



Now install the slip on



Start tightening down your clamps tighten the trans mount clamp last after tighting this nut down



That is the old pic the new one you need a swivel socket to tighten it down and ya can't really see it


Tighten this clamp last its the one that holds the stud that mounts to the trans




And there is the True Dual Kit not hard to do if your interested in doing it .

Little bit harder when its around 15 degrees for the whole install
