Ended up going with a Jones muffler from Summit. I had a 3" turn down I bought from autozone probably 5 years ago... so I made some pie cuts and turned it out 90*.
I was able to stick to the exhaust being a 3 piece like I wanted to make.
The middle section is completely straight so adding in a flex piece or resonator at some point is an easy task.
Ground clearance... tucked under frame rails.
Made the final piece today. The exit. Hangars are always a pain for me to eyeball just right, but I was able to do it perfectly this time.
This pic makes it look not centered, but it's just the angle of the camera.
So after starting it up, I can REALLY hear the exhaust leak in the engine bay now. Unfortunately it looks to be cylinder 1 manifold flange to the head. I am slowly tightening down the nuts to hopefully seal it up, but I worry I am going to shear a stud.
The last thing I want to do is take off the entire exhaust manifold again... If I do that, I might as well make a non-log style manifold and start over.
All I want to do is start tuning with the MS3 and driving
