How come you want a true dual set up? I only ask because I have heard, I tried to find the article that it was bad for performance. As I did some reading it seemed that the only real benefit was the sound vs the loss of power from the free flow of the set up. Just a thought

hey thanks for the quick response...well i think you would have performance loss if you didnt have a balancing tube like an H or X pipe and the summit H pipe kit is only like $50...anyone with experience with this kit or with the headers that come with it???
hears the link again.... http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SU...ComboContents/

and here's the H-pipe... http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-642022/?rtype=1

I would deff do the H-pipe, And personally I would do it in place of the bum mufflers that come with the kit, but then again... I like it loud but for real, You can always order a pair of flowmasters to throw in there.

drill a hole big enough for the O2 Sensor, of course. Weld a nut to the pipe the same size thread as the O2 sensor and install. Congratulations, you answered your own question. I do the same thing all the time. LOL! Good luck! AROD
