VMS Upcoming 4" Downpipe Project "PICS" !!

I picked up a downpipe from ford to use as the base then we are going to cut it up replace the bent pieces and slightly redesign it which will improve airflow and move it away from the frame which will eliminate the need for the big dent. We will remove all the inside 3.5" pipe and take any kinda baffles out of it and replace it with 4" pipe. We are going to leave both ends of the pipe the same to make sure there is no fitment issue when we go to reinstall it. pretty simple and straight forward

Yea I think thats going to be the trick. I don't think this is going to be easy at all.

Smokin Joe said his truck sounds REALLY mean with a 4" downpipe.

i really dont see where this is gonna help you other than sound , when the v-band flange and tapered coupler are necked down like crazy.

unless your gonna loose that necked down tapered flange at the bottom , thats what i would do cause that would be where most of your restriction would be , if not i think you would be just pissin in the wind
