Anybody using the Summit Dual Exhaust kit on a '93ish 5.0?

This one
Summit SUM-CBJJ118 - Summit® Dual Exhaust Systems - summitracing.com
I really need to buy an exhaust for my newly rebuilt motor so I thought this sounds like a great deal.

If you have it, did it bolt right in?
Also, how does it sound?

I'm trying to put it in my '93 F150 5.0 long box.

Thanks!

ghunt is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
They must have the wrong picture for that...that shows one of their generic "in front of the rear wheels" kits but the notes say it runs down the right side of the frame.

That whole listing is very confusing...because in the kit's contents it says it HAS that universal duals kit in it. I don't really understand.

From the description it just sounds like they stuck their headers with Walker's 2 1/4" header back kit and called it their kit, but now I'm not so sure.

seems to be a great deal...

Looking to get the same kit for my 91 5.0, how did it work out for your truck?

What he said, it sucks.
Took my Dad and I almost 3 hours to cut and weld one side.
Sounds ok, very quiet. Looks like ***, it's a cobbled together kit that is by no means a bolt in.
Sure, it comes with a few flexible pipes but you still have to pie-cut your *** off to get it around everything.
I need to call them and really give them an earful still.


I'm going to go with headers to single 2.5" now.

That's what universal means. One size fits none
Your 2.5" single back will be sufficient. True duals that are two different lengths because they both have to run down the same side of the truck would seem to throw the balance off anyway because the back pressure will be different for each side.
I would go headers to a 2.5" Y pipe. 3" from the Y to a 3" inlet Muffler with dual 2.5" outlets and tailpipes. This will give you plenty of flow and both sides of the engine will be balanced.
