Exhaust Help

I just took my jeep in today to get the exhaust done. I'm doing a frame up so the body isn't on yet. The guy there recommends flowmaster exhaust. Is flomaster the best exhaust to use with a 258? If not what do you recommend. Also should I get chrome tips or not. It's only an extra $20 dollars so I'll probably end up doing it. I need to let him know first thinkg tomorrow morning so quick responses would be helpful. Thanks

Trevor

as far as flowmaster goes ,no i wouldnt.just have him make it out of good 2 or 2 1/2 in pipe with a good turbo style muffler and youll do fine.chrome tips are up to you,just remember they will rust fairly quickly

Wow. I always thought that flowmaster was the PRIMO top-of-the line. Whether it is or not, it may be the highest price. A true salesman will suggest the highest priced item. I suppose it depends on if you trust this guy, but I'd personally have no qualms about the quality of Flowmaster. (but I'm sorta new at this stuff )

If you can afford a chrome tip, GET ONE! Get rid of it if it rusts next year or next week. I've got one on my Honda, and it looks great after a year (and I live in Sh***y Ohio). Yet the exhaust pipe will rapidly discolor unless you stay on top of it. The contrast of pipe-to-tip may be noticable in just a few weeks. I guess it depends on whether or not any of the pipe is visible after the job is done?!?

I have a related question. I'm taking off the cat all together and putting on a flowmaster exaust. However, I got to wondering if I could throw on a Y pipe and go dual flowmasters with 2.5" pipes. I have the 258 with the bigger of the two weber carbs. I'm wondering if the dual flowmaster setup would create enough back pressure. Any suggestions would be welcome.

I went with the flomaster exhaust. The guy who installed it is a good friend of mine so I got a really good deal. At the cat converter there were two outlets. then he ran it to through to the back. I got 3" crome tips and it looks really sharp.
