Default 87 Power Ram Wierd Setup

Hey guys just bought my 87 power ram and I was curious so I got to looking under the truck and there is only one catalytic converter about 8" long off the driver side. There is nothing off the passenger manifold. I though this was a little odd and must be factory because there is no cut/weld marks. anyway I intend on running true dual glasspacks and I know some have done it with this year truck but to me there's absolutely no room can anyone help me by telling me their configuration or ideas for true dual exhaust on an 87 power ram shortbed. Thanks

Typically this involves ditching the stock exhausts and adding aftermarket headers after tapping and threading the air injection holes in the cylinder heads at each exhaust port. Take the stock manifolds off and you'll see what I'm talking about. Once the headers are in place and the air injection ports are plugged, the rest is easy.

yeah I planned on going with header guess I shoulda been more clear what I meant was there's not a whole lot of room between the frame rail and the tranny mount cross member to run side by side pipe or stacked down the passenger side the only thing I can think of is keep the passenger side pipe route and go down in between the fuel tank and driveshaft to meet up I with the other pipe idk its deffinately going to take some brain power

Maybe this will help?

Maybe glean some ideas at least. Optionally, go with a single 3 inch pipe, splitting off to duals further back.
