stack questions...

So im thinking of running a single stack. I currently have a 4" turbo back exhaust on the truck and want to use it. Has anyone just run a 90* bend up to the bed and just hooked the stack up to it? Is this a smart and cost effective way to do it? Or do i need to get some flex pipe and just secure the stack to the bed?

Re: stack questions...

You want to mount the stack to the bed. If not it will flop around like a limp dick. Since you want your truck to articulate I recommend using a short piece of flex in your setup somewhere. It could be before or after the 90 degree bend. My personal preference is to have it before the bend, but its not a requirement.

I just ran a 90* up into the bed. no flex pipe for me... but i think it would have been easier if i would have.

Re: stack questions...

Ok, so the easiest way to install and allow for enough flex from the frame/body would be just put a small piece of flex right before the 90* and then just mount the stack to the bed inside, correct? And thanks for the help guys! Seems like its about how i pictured it then, and should be a pretty easy install.

Re: stack questions...

The only pics I know of are mattgw86's... no offense to him, but I wouldn't do it exactly like that...

I'd mount the plate on the bottom of the bed and make sure either my welds were hidden, or very clean/ground flush...

Re: stack questions...



And you could use washers to align it if it wasn't perfectly straight...
