Flowmaster 40

I recently purchased a flowmaster 40 off of Craigslist. It looks great and I ant wait to get it on. It is a dual exhaust and I didn't want to make mine a dual. I was wondering if there is a way to change the muffler into a single instead of dual. Will there be back pressure problems?

Chase0808, I will probably get torn apart for this answer but I did the same thing on my YJ. My muffler rusted off and the day I cut it off a friend gave me a flowmaster 40 that he cut off of his truck. Being broke and in need of a muffler I welded it on. The length was almost the same as stock but the inlet and out tubes on the 40 were considerably larger. I just pie cut the muffler openings and reduced them down then welded the pies up then welded the muffler on. Then I just welded a plate over the second opening and off I went. As far as the backpressure goes I am not an expert but I will tell you I have run it that way for around 6 or 7 years and haven't noticed any problems. It looks kind of back woods redneck, but I was in a hard spot and I did it for the cost of a couple feet of welding wire, besides looks (especially underneath) don't make my jeep perform any different. I just used what I had to get it back on the road, plus it sounds better than the stock muffler and everyone knows sound adds horsepower right?

Would I be able to use something like this to turn the dual exhaust into a single without negatively affecting anything?

you could as long as you can get the inlets/outlets in a size to match your current pipe & muffler

only potential problem I see is that USUALLY that type of pipe is intended as a traditional Y-pipe... 2 pipes going in and a single outlet. in that case, the outlet is usually the same size (or more likely larger) than each of the inlets.... your situation I imagine would be reversed.

check Summit or Jegs for the best selection of sizes on that

Good luck
