What's more streamlined? Glass pack cherries? It's too loud already lol. But ya when the engine swap happens I'll go to single 3" likely drivers side.

Something like this. Several manufacturers make smaller mufflers for tight spots.

You can find a smaller muffler on summit as well. The mobile version to search I can't seem to filter by the width/dia off muffler. But first filter under borla and this is what popped up. 5in dia round muffler , 3" in/out, stainless steel



Also checked out your cage thread. Have you ordered from d and c recently?

I know there was some issues back in the 2000s, can't totally remember exactly...getting older. But I do remember that something soured with him/biz/customers. I'd just double check that all is good, inventory etc. I hope all is better over there, he was definitely building some cool shit back in the day.

Edit: I'd go with 2" .120. and connect to frame in as many spots if you can. I know you plan to keep your dash operable etc. But I'd connect to frame from b pillar back where you can. Triangulate and you'll be all good dude. I love scouts and yeah they're heavy but it's a trail rig.

Right on. I was a bit of scout nut for 20 yrs. Just make sure all is good. It was a while ago now, and all might be have been good for years by now but he was always good to people that plugged him....if you catch my drift. Wouldn't want to see a real scout enthusiast get burned. Love the build dude!!

Picked up the 5.3L LS tonight. 165k miles on it. Prob needs a reseal, might do head gaskets etc. Need to do some research.

Will drop the pan to look at the bottom end.

'05 LM7 5.3

Want to run only 87 octane cause I'm a cheap cunt so only want mods that will keep me able to run that gas. Don't want a HP monster but more low end torque would be nice.

Very comparable to the Scouts 345. With orig 180-200 hp and 300 ft lb torque. However the Scouts torque is instantaneous in the bottom end.

Honestly, never even driven an LS gm. I'm a ford guy...

Had a fuck of a time smashing my right rear shock shaft right into the body of it. Only had just shy of 2 3/4" of shock travel after pulling a leaf spring out so the prick could fit in my garage with the 40s on it...

Well it blew the seal so got a new one ordered. But I drilled new holes in my mounts 1.25" lower than before so I've got almost 4" of uptravel now. My bjmps are set at 2" of that travel but obviously weren't enough to stop them from bottoming out before hopefully the extra 1" helps.

Also got more of the new engine put together. Waiting of summit order to get here tomorrow before I put the pass side exhaust manifold on. (ordered truck manifold flanges, making these LS1 manifolds fit the truck flanges.)

The 5.3 is ready to drop in.

Spent all day under it adding the rear anti wrap leafs on the top of the pack. Will know in a couple weeks if it helps or not. Still want to add a suck down winch up front.

Fucked around with the fuel tank after that as I ran out of gas yesterday because my sending unit wasn't working. Found a loose wire on top. Fixed it all up now it's all good. Ps poly tanks for scouts fucking suck. But the only steel or alum tanks now are over $1k us which is kinda retarded. I mean there isn't much competition but still. Frig.

Wanted to wheel this weekend but needed to get all this junk done. Also rotating the 40s. In only say 2k-2.5k km the 40s have shrunk by 1/16"...

However did a 550k km drive before I ran out of fuel and was getting 12 MPG with the worn out ol 345 and gm tbi injection.
