JBA Dual

I wanna run JBA on my truck, but I want to run duals, Is the JBA dual setup for v8's possible? Been contemplating with Stangdroptop on this, just not sure.

If possible where can I get this setup from?

erm, if you can bend some pipes, yes. i don't think there is enough room, but if you wanted to make it work, im sure you could.

i contemplated the same 1. every 1 i talked to said the 4.0 really isnt beffy enough for true duals cause of lack of back pressure. itll kill the bottom end torque.

I disagree, I know a couple guys with true duals on their rangers, not JBA obviously and they have no problem, flows good.

I would end up taking it to an exhaust shop, I'm just wondering if they could either make it work or run a custom dual setup out of the single system.....confusing much Im sorry I don't know **** about exhaust.

It sounded to me you had a 5L swap. Id just buy a JBA si/do muffler and have a custom exhaust made. I think flowmaster 40 sounds the best but thats my .02

you are making this way too complicated

if you want true dual exhaust, buy two mufflers of your choice in 2.25" size, two cats if you need them and have a shop bend it all up once the headers are installed.

or reuse your exhaust to the converters, then buy a single inlet/dual outlet muffler and have a shop bend it all up for you

Don't worry about it, I will confuse myself doing it. I have decided to go with magnaflow dual catback, much easier. Thanks for the help

Heres my 2 cents from the FNG :) . On a smaller displacement motor, ie v6, you are going to loose a lot of bottom end(torque) with a true dual setup. Sadly a V6 does not have the torque of a V8 so in my opinion there is no acceptable trade off. A 2 into 1 system that is properly engineered, like one from JBA, is superior to true duals on a smaller displacement motor. It is set up to scavenge efficiently and will actually produce more power than true duals. I would stick with the 2 into 1 system.

I never actually planned on doing true duals. I was looking more for a dual inlet dual outlet deal.

There's nothing wrong with true duals on a v6. Just dont run too big of a pipe
