Default More things I discovered about my 2013 Sport....

Dual exhaust....Really??? where?? I have a cross-over pipe, single exhaust to the muffler then it splits off to two exhause outlets...Hardly dual exhaust. As a matter a fact, I think we got lied to. Oh and the cross-over pipe? Yea, it's runs directly under the trans pan. I think it was meant to warm your tranny up faster.. Really?? I bet that really helps temps when I tow. And the tranny cooler lines. They run about 1.5" from the CAT. Know how hot those get?? Hot enough to boil oil. I have allready talked about the exposed A/C lines under the hood. On my 1st oil change today, the pan plug was hand tight. The oil filter was fine although a PITA to get to. The lug nuts were o.k. except for the wheel locks. It took a long breaker bar to loosen them. (I know this because I removed the r/front wheel for the oil change. Based on that wheel lock I decided to check the others and they were too tight as well). This isn't a bitch. Love the truck. Just stating the facts.....C'mon man!! I paid for dual exhaust!!!

Don't feel bad, I bought Borla duals for my 05. They were pretty expensive, but hell, they sound good.

It has been that way since the 2009 model. It is a slight of hand and a little bit of a stretch, but in the end it does exhaust out of two outlets in the rear.

bring it back, or do more research before you purchased it. these exhaust systems sound great with a different muffler.

I could give a flip if it has 2-1-2 or a 2-2 exhaust. This is a truck, not a race car.

A ricer is not a race car, and going faster than a ricer does not make you a race car driver.
