Since I am adding the 5 speed with split transfer case, will the factory exhaust, which i have to replace, fit this set up. Or, is this more along the lines of a custom exhaust shop?
I was told we will have to re-locate the crossmember because of the bellhousing of the new 5speedYes, exhaust routing will not change assuming it is factory and nothing weird has been done. Do you plan to use the bellhousing mounts and hang it that way or change to under trans cross member such as the early 3pc of later 1 piece, or custom? Depending on crossmember choice and if you have a completely factory exhaust will tell you if anything needs changing. Sometimes folks tuck the exhaust higher above skidplate so that could affect cross members.
The answer is usually yes you should becuase the added weight of h55/split case is deemed excessive for the bellhousing mounts. Your call, I've seen both done. I have a loose 4spd and split case, I should weigh it against the 4spd and one piece t-case and lastly....against an h55 with splitcase. See what the true numbers yield.I was told we will have to re-locate the crossmember because of the bellhousing of the new 5speed
