Exhaust question

Ok here's the deal. I but a new 258 in my Jeep. It came with duel Hedman Hedders. However i think the hedders are for a manual tranny and mine is an auto. The hedders fit and do not inter-fear with tranny. The problem is how do I run my exhaust so that it doesn't get in the way of the tranny. Right now I have a temp setup w/ the exhaust running on the driverside of the tranny, but I think it making my tranny fluid too hot and causing my tranny to leak. I'd like to have the dual exhaust run on each side of the tranny and still be able to drop the tranny if need be. Does anybody know if that is possible. Anyways I'm gonna go to the exhaust shop tomorrow to see if the can do anything. If anybody has pics of their exhaust let me see'em. Thanks...sorry I was long winded. L8er

it shouldnt make your tranny leak. here what i would do, i would get slightly longer pipes from the header and move the muffler back where the driveshaft is and up closer toward the bottom of the body tub. thats what ive done with my flowmaster. it wouldnt fit beside the driveshaft so i had it raised above it. works good and has caused me no heat issues.
