Headers for Yj

I have a 90 YJ with 4.2L i-6. I got a set of headers off a guy who said he was using them on an 89 Yj with same engine. He didnt know the brand. They are split headers with 2 outlets. He told me he was running dual exhaust out the back. I looked around and they appear to look like Hedman Headers for a Jeep CJ with same engine. Will these work for my YJ? I would imagine I need to run dual exhaust as well. Sorry if this question seems dumb. I am a little bit of a rookie when it comes to Jeeps.

Dual exhaust, no cat.

Headers loop around the front of the oil pan and the pipes run on both sides of the transmission over the skid plate and inside the frame. Mufflers come right after the transfer case but before the rear axle with the tailpipes looped over the rear axle and finish on either side of the rear bumper.

Headers were already installed but the mufflers and pipe installation costed $200.00.

dual exhaust is a space hog on a jeep. its more of a PITA then its worth. most dual outlet headers for i6 jeeps have another collector to merge the two. this type of header uses long primary tubes and is undesirable for this application. the shorter the better. had a similar setup and it was awful.

I had the pacesetter duel set up on my4.2 before i built the stroker, mine did come with a two into one pipe, which ran under the oil pan. It was kinda a space hog but being long tube it does help on the low end torque! I have now a set for the 4.0 head that is on the stroker, just haven't had the time to install it yet. I like the duel set up, I want to put it on with a duel inlet flow master and run a single out the rear

Wow, 200 bucks to get all that done is a fantastic bargain. I paid 200 plus for one new muffler and piping out the back.
