Yes..I will get a few in the morning...I had to modify the spare tire space by cutting out about 6inches to make a tunnel for the elbow coming out of the 2nd muffler going into the y.pipe and made a few heat shields to cover the fuel tank pipes and the sending unit lines...it took a while as far as planning and fitting...sounds very good...its a complete walker exhaust system except the magnaflow cat...

I had a dual exit system before, but I did it without modifying anything on the car, just used a crossflow muffler. Also less weight than adding a second muffler ;)

I have pics if you want to see my setup.

What kind of walker mufflers? Do you have the model number? I like how they're dual outlets.

They look like stock replacements. In effect you could get a system for a 92-95 grand am and it would bolt right on and look the same.

This is what I did.

Gave a guy I know who run a shop the muffler and said make it fit dual exit, but don't cut the car, and don't hang the sucker below the spare tire well as some had.

I used the square tips which blocked the visual of the muffler on the left hand side a decent amount so you wouldnt notice only one side had the case. Also I should have painted it black like the system I have now, but oh well.

I still have that system sitting in the yard on the car... If its not that bad I may try to re-use it some day...

I liked the sound, others didn't... It had a nice deep sound to it.

It was a flowmaster 80 series, non delta flow, so really equal to a 40 series with a cross flow setup. Maybe its the 80 series part that makes it sound different compared to the 40's that many hate.

Here are a few OLD vids of what it sounded like... I have some with the new exhaust and when the milzy cam was it in... that sounded pretty good when it was first installed.

This one is with the Milzy cam, but the first vid I ever took of it running sounded the best... not sure why.

First vid ever of the Hybrid Milzy setup I used for 15k miles.
