Dual exhaust on 4x4

Looking to run duals on my F250 4x4. Since the steering box & clutch pretty much block the left rear of the engine, I guess I need to go with a center-dump exhaust manifold. I've looked at the rams-horn manifolds, but they're kind of expensive. Does anyone else make shorty headers for the Y block that dump in the center? Also, that would necessitate moving the dipstick on the right side, since it runs right up the middle where the collector would be; can it be carefully bent forward to clear the new manifold? Looking for suggestions, and pics of duals on a 4x4 would be awesome! Thanks.

Maybe look into t-bird headers they do make shorties but I'm not sure if they'll clear the steering box I'm workin on a 64 4x4 with the 292 but it's a little different since I put an automatic in it are you lifting the truck at all?

There's not much room between the diff and the headers only about 3 1/2 inches mine is just over stock height springs reached 2 inches hope this helps

Thanks. It appears you have a different steering setup than me. My steering box is mounted on the frame to the rear of the axle. I don't think these headers would clear it. My thought was a block hugger style header with a center dump, then run the exhaust pipe under the oil pan to the passenger side, then run right next to rt. exhaust pipe, where there's plenty of clearance.

Well the steering is not finished mine stock had the big steering box right under the cab but I'm in the process of putting a Saginaw power box on the outside of the frame it cleared my stock box fine. You may have to have custom headers made for your truck .

Byrd.dog In the second picture it looks like the hole in the frame for the stock steering box is showing. With those headers it looks to me like you would have the room.

The Sanderson truck headers are good and I know some guys that run them and they clear. They are rated pretty high on the y-block web site when hooked up to dyno when running dual exhaust. If you can find some good used ram horns or they do sell them new but a little expensive. I have a friend that runs ram horns on his 60 4x4 with no problem for clearance. If you do decide, recommend you run the 2.5 inch diameter exhaust to increase flow. Let us know what you do.

I'll make sure to take some before & after pics after I get it all put together. I'm gonna check with a local exhaust shop & see what they'd charge for custom headers, then go with whatever's cheaper between them & the ram's horns. Actually like the vintage look of the ram's horns; just wish I could find some used ones! Was planning on 2" pipes just cause of clearance issues. I'm sure 2.5 would flow a little better, but even the 2" should be a massive improvement over the stock design.

you can run duals with the factory exhaust manifolds just like they did "back in the day". my 60 f250 4x4 has a factory 292 and factory four wheel drive. take out the cross over pipe, cap the right side inlet, left side comes out in the factoy spot then does a 180 degree bend down and back to just under the frame rail, then straight out the back. clears the fuel pump, steering and diff. if this can be done in SD then it should be able to be done where your at. but if you want to spend the money, i would go with the ram horns. can post a pic later if you would like.

I actually saw this setup on a truck at a show once. An interesting idea that I'll definately keep in mind.
