Pypes 2.5″ Crossflow Exhaust

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

The Pypes 2.5″ Crossflow system was installed on the Trans Am today.  This is an interesting setup since it closely replicates the factory system but is improved in every imaginable way.  Even though the system has one muffler, there are two completely separate chambers.  Basically two individual mufflers in one casing.  This is a huge upgrade from the factory muffler since it had only one exhaust line in and then split into two.  The ground clearance of the kit is absolutely amazing since the single muffler tucks nicely between the rear axle and gas tank.  The “X” pipe design allows the exhaust to virtually hide in the drive shaft tunnel.  The overall fitment of the kit was excellent with only a couple of minor issues.  One is the the brake hose on the rear axle just about touches the exhaust pipe and will have to be relocated.  The second is that few inches of pipe will have to be cut off in order to install the factory style Trans Am splitters.  A separately purchased Pypes adapter was required for proper alignment of the splitter.
