As I said before ,this was a research project right now trying to find out more info. Well something else new popped up on an old thread on LS1 tech. Someone with an LS powered drift car, which did start out with 8 into 1 headers, came up with something simpler to get that sound. He did true equal length headers in optimum firing order location set up with a 2 into 1 merge immediately after headers, giving a similar effect to the 8 into 1 deal. See post 52 & the video & Instagram link on post 53.

So , possibly I may be able to continue with my tri-y headers I started on & modify the ends to merge together immediately into another 2 into 1 merge. I'll be patient & see what other info pops up on doing things this way.

This is why some of us do extra research before starting a project.

Did a little more looking into exhaust lately since I been too sick to work much on the widebody last few weeks..

This guy Nick Kautz has several versions of exhausts he's done on you tube. The BMW has an older 5.0 Ford 302, which has the same firing order as my LS engine. One version was what I'd call a tri-y crossover 180, not true 180 headers, but similar sound. Latest version is the tri-y headers with triple x-pipes, which sounds pretty good. His tri-y's don't have the same cylinder merging as mine, but they seem to get the job done. Waiting to see what he comes up with after swapping an LS in place of the ford 302.
His 180 system.

Also a similar system on an ls swap, but not probably not as equal length headers.


Also of interest in getting similar sound is nascar boom tube/ x-pipe setup used after true equal length headers.
