Y Pipe Kits????
 
Can anyone tell me if there are kits available to get rid of the stock Y Pipe on the 4th Gen Hemi's. I own a 2012 Ram 1500 with 5.7 litre. Where I live there isn't anyone really suited to build one. I also want stainless steel with mandrel bends. I know I can buy the the Y Pipe but the rest is a bit much for me to figure out. Sorta want a ready made system like the Mufflex set up. I can get it welded-on but building it is gonna be tough in my neck of the woods.

Thanks for your help !!

Just buy the magnaflow one and then get it welded in. I have a 14 magnaflow and the Y-pipe on my 2012.

There is the pacesetter one(aluminized steel, crosses behind the transmission, and for 3rd gens only I believe), the one sold by exhaust junkie(is SS but not sure if it's for 4th gens, conflicting info, and goes under the transmission), and others I'm sure. I'm not aware of ANY that say they are for 4th gens and direct fit.

That said, the 3rd adn 4th gens are nearly identical as far as fitment for this so I'd think you could get a 3rd gen y pipe and have an exhaust shop weld it in easily.

I was thinking of even doing it on my 4.7L, the exhaust routing appears identical to the hemi. I decided though to just buy all the pipe and bends and just weld it all up myself, save some money. I'm using aluminized steel because I'll probably be changing it eventually and I don't live in a very corrosive environment. SS is expensive, especially for mandrel bends.

Thanks fella's. I'm gonna get the "Y" and drive to a good shop for the install.
