im kindof sick of how my exhaust looks, but i cant afford to/don't want to change my muffler. i have a gibson single side swept exhaust. the tip wont stay clean!!! dirt gets kicked up onto it. so i was wondering.. what happens if i either get a new tailpipe and send it strait out the back or split the 3 into 2 smaller pipes and do split rear. would either of these things hurt performance or sound(significantly). is it even possible to split a 3 inch pipe into dual rear after it leaves the muffler...i mean i guess its possible but how would one go about doing this? i dont know. any ideas???

tired of this

You can split the exhaust into two tailpipes out the rear. The muffler shop will just make 2-into-1 y pipe to make the single exit muffler have two tailpipes. There is alot of mixed reviews as to whether this hurts performance or not. I personally have this setup, and have had other setups as well, and I have not seen a performance loss with this. Sound is great. Coming out of two places make the sound carry better and can be heard better from both sides of the vehicle.

Hey LI Blackdak,

That's my biggest complaint about my gibson dual sport i just installed. Question: Do you have those mud flaps like they sell on ebay installed, the plastic ones made for daks? I'm wondering if that would help.

I could never keep the end pipe on my MBRP clean, but now that it's turned down it doesn't really matter and it looks cleaner since the rear tires aren't sending mud all over it. You pretty much just got to live with it when you have it mounted right there. A spilit dual would help though.

Yeah, i used to have the gibson single on my truck, and it got SOOO dirty. I think there is still a good 2 inches of dirt cooked on the tip. It cleans up nice, but its just such a pain to keep clean. How did i fix it? I got a dual MBRP catback. :) And i must say, the MBRP is the best sounding cat back i've ever heard. I did like the sound of the Gibson. Had a good mellow tone too it.

I've got the molded mud flaps on my Dak, along with the Gibson swept-side, and I can say that my tip is always dirty. It doesn't get as much dirt/mud, but it is still dirty...
