Dually - F exhaust

I did it. Muscle exhaust on my DX.

I know there are folks that don't like them and consider them inferior to a 2 into 1 setup. Well, I did the 2 into 1 since 2008 and honestly I can say, good riddance. After I post this, I'm ordering some V&H slip ons. They sound awesome on my wife's F, so that should be the happy medium I'm looking for.

I know someone will ask, so....yes, I'll sell my 2 into 1 Indy. I'll consider offers, but I'll tell you up front, they've been running strong since early 2008. The set screw that holds the baffle in isn't even visible due to dragging, one of the spring holder is scraped completely off, but they're wrapped pretty good

Thanks to Jason Phillips!!!!

Nice work. I have been thinking about this mod. Was it hard? Will the mounting hardware fit the DX, or did you have to be creative?

I got the complete setup from a forum member, brackets etc all stock muscle parts. Bolted right up in about 45 minutes.

Yep, both sides via Pondo a few years ago.

Can we get a pick looking straight from behind? I know, it sounds wrong.
