I have a 2 in 2 out magnaflow on my 95, 5.2 L, no cat converter. my head pipes are connected to 2" pipes which are clamped with stainless band clamps. (tight clearances to work with, there, the band clamps are perfect there) These end at approx the front end of the bed which is where the magnaflow begins,welded to the pipes with outershield mig wire. the tailpipes are also 2",welded to the muffler, they reach to beneath the rear bumper.Hangers are on the tailpipes, aft of the axle, and around the magnaflow, this truck is a standard cab, shortbed. An extended cab, or longbed truck would require a couple more hangers, I would think. The muffler is the "crossover, so to speak" and it is mounted with the 'oval' top and bottom. It sounds quite gentlemanly, until the engine is working hard, at 54 Yrs, I'm not much into noisy pipes, however this truck sings... , and only when I want it to. My other truck has a std cab shortbed exhaust system off a factory hemi truck from the cat back, with the 3" pipes, and I'm quite happy with it, as well, sounds quite like my old roadrunner 440, and it simply sounds quiet, but mighty when you want it to, it has original hemi mufflers, too...I'm not much on side exits, it seems someone invariably steps on them and twists them, or they catch on something and crunch shut, when you're backing up. My 2 cents, someone else will have other ideas, I've never owned a flowmaster, no particular reason. Use aluminized pipe or better, and don't go big, they rot out in the UK, too much condensation, from the damp air, I had duals on a Chev there, 89-91, they rotted right off. They have to get good and hot, to lose the acids from combustion, I guess.
