Mufflex is working on a weld in Y-pipe for all you 2009-2012 Dodge 1500 guys out there. It will be a mandrel bent replacement pipe kit that will be welded right to the cats and replace that whole ugly factory merge pipe set up. All stainless and Dyno tested, it will make more power over stock. Coming soon, Ill let you know.

Considering that no piping would need to be added or changed w/ this kit, it will be priced a bit higher than the magnaflow y-pipe but the costs of having a shop change the piping should offset.

Id hope for a pricetag of about $60 to $80.

I think your pricing guesses are probably a bit optimistic....keep in mind there will be a few bends with this kit (mandrel none the less) and it will replace several feet of pipe. It will be a great product though...

Yeah, well just have to see. Id prefer it bolt-in to weld-in though if my price is optimistic. You have to consider you can get a $25 magnaflow y-pipe and have it installed (with new pipe to fit it) for about $100. Thats $125 total so if this thing has to be welded in and is over $100, kind of negates getting it and you might as well get the maggy y-pipe.

If its bolt in, thats completely different as you wouldnt have to pay an exhaust shop to weld it in.

^ I agree. Keep in mind too though that the pipe that crosses over from the driver's side to the passenger side is also crushed.

It would be nice to have it be a clamp on setup...

Exhaust Junkie:

Maybe you could pass some tips on to them for their development. I think in general, we'd all REALLY rather it be bolt on, especially if it crosses over in the same location under the transmission(it would be nice to be able to unbolt the exhaust for trans removals).

Also, is there any timeline guesstimates? I would buy one if it'll be out within a few months, otherwise I'll probably do my own...

Interesting. I was just thinking about changing the y-pipe on my truck. I will wait and see what you come out with.

What does "coming soon" mean? A few weeks? Months? A year or more?
Sorry, I just hate to be baited and teased. This is a mod I'm going to be doing in the near future and really want to get the best set up possible without a whole lot of monkeying around to get it done.

Mufflex has not updated me yet on time, but my guess is in March they will be ready. Dont worry, when they are ready I will post.

Looks like pricing is going to be at $270 for the kit. No complaining about price please, it is what it is and if you want to go the cheaper route than we have the MagnaFlow 10778 and you can have a shop weld it in for you. Pictures and dyno specs coming in a day or so. Will be available for purchase in about one week.

Can't wait to see exactly what the kit is. It MIGHT be worth it for that price....not sure until we see it though....I assume it's still weld in and the clamp on didn't fly?
