Smile Dual Exhaust

Is it possible to install a stock looking true twin exhaust system on the 96 Explorer AWD 5.0 truck? Any link/info would be great. What are the advantages to such a conversation? Thanks.

You mean having two pipes coming out at the stock location? I don't think there's enough room. But it might be possible.

Possibily. Thought that there would be a way of running a dual exhaust system and making it appear as stock.

They put a Y just after the muffler and the shop bent the pipe. Spare tire is still in orig. place. Just gotta find a shop that will work with you.

Very nicely done Bill. Looks great! Did you retain the stock mufflers? And what chrome exhaust tips did you use? Thanks.

I retained the stock muffler. I had a flowmaster 70 on a 96 OHV previously and got sick of the drone. Without the resonator the stock has a good V8 sound.
I just got a couple of stainless rolled tip tips off Ebay. I drilled a hole in the bottom side of the tips to let the moisture drip out so it doesnt discolor the tips.

Sounds like the factory set-up on my 85 5.0 Mustang with the Y pipe. Although the Stang use two mufflers.

97' 4.0 sohc

does anybody think that you could run dual exhaust with the 4.0 SOCH. i am hesitant b/c i know these engines love the backpressure. do you guys think it would run ok and not loose power?

From what i have gathered over time from other sites, most v6 engines do not benifit enuph or at all from true duels to be worth the cost of installing one. You would be better off having a single in duel out muffler put in. Now if you were running a v8 I would say go for it.

Bill Kemp, what all was done to your exhaust? I thought the 70 was suppose to be a fairly quite flowmaster? I have a Super 44 with gutted cats and my 95 doesnt have much drone at all, I can hear it in the cab but not very loud at all, not like my buddys 07 eclipse with a FM Super 44. Now that thing, woudl drive me nuts lol.

Holy 4 year old thread resurrection!! Way to search man!

As stated above you're further ahead to stick with a single pipe. A 2.5" is said to be the best for the Explorer. You'll get plenty of sound and flow with that. Putting duals in and keep the spare is a headache. Have the pipe tucked up underneath the rear bumper and you don't have to worry about tips.

hey. just had a question about dual ins and dual outs. i have a 98 XLT V6 and it has dual ins and a single out. i was looking at the flowmaster 40 series with dual in and dual out but im really not that ... well muffler savy. does it make sense to put in a dual system with duel ins or should i just put a single out 40 series on with a nice looking tip. also was looking to put the exhaust out in front of the right rear tire with a chrome tip cut on a 45 probably. would definitely run less pipe that way and i like the look a lot better. any ideas

cvt98 i got single in and dual out 40 series flowmasters on my 01 sport and it sounds awesome and i got the 4.0 sohc engine.

i am saving up to get true duals now since i got a job now i will probably be able to get true duals soon. But my flowmasters are 2 1/2 inch piping too.

here r pics of my 01 sport and it has some pics of my flowmasters on it.
