Leave two on. Trucks are ridiculously loud with all removed.
It will be catless ($cost issues) with a single muffler most likely

Tranny harness, support and bushing, controller, linkage, output shaft and tail housing is all here.

Engine is complete except for timing, prolly going to reuse my factory cams for the turbos.

Throttle body, turbos, flanges, sensors are all here. Just waiting on the manifolds and timing chains/tensioners/guides and Im good to go.

All 3-255's arrived today too.

Also ordered FX4's timing bolt kit from trick flow, and got another intake manifold for fordmotorsports, so boys your parts are coming. If I don't send you a tracking # tomorrow feel free to bitch me out lol

80-100 bucks in pipe + a small mig welder and you have what you need. I'm going mild steel ceramic coated so I don't have to buy another tank of argon.

Ferg get some 2.5" PVC pipe, couplers, and angles. Mock up your exhaust to the flange. Send it to me and Ill weld up the mandrel bends or bend on my buddy hydrauic machine for ya.

IM sure if you mock it up and take it to an exhaust shop they will do it. The one my friend owns has a sweet *** hydralic pipe machine: uses a dial gauge to add angles and can make any flange you want out of the 2.5" pipe in a matter of seconds.
