It's where the two down pipes from each side of the motor merge into the single pipe that goes to the muffler. They are crimped at the ends, then placed into the 3" main pipe & welded. Pretty restrictive design.

if thats the case yes. the stock y pipe is restrictive. its not the worst thing in the world, and a swap to a custom y pipe or magnaflow y will help flow a "little" bit. most of the guys who get them are happy with the results.

called an exhaust shop and they said the cant make one they would have to order one. so i called a different shop and they said they can fab one together just have to do somthing with the cats i wasnt to sure on what he was saying.

They don't need to do anything with the cats, they'll just have to do a little bit of custom bending

:goodpost7td:

I'm sure they were refering to the fact that the cats on rams are welded instead of bolted. Just takes a bit more bending and fab work to make work.
