Come off the header with flex pipe, used that on my SHO too, and use an appropriate "Y" fitting and run the pipes on top of one another to the back and then split into two, 2.25" racing mufflers like this: http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_x_16120050-P_x_x?cm_mmc=ACQ-_-Google-_-enhancedRM-_-16120050&ci_src=17588969&ci_sku=16120050&ci_gpa=pla&ci_kw={keyword}&gclid=CJ-igbDn_LUCFe4-Mgod4QwA3A

I recommend to use the factory manifold gasket. The one sent with the header is not great quality. Make sure you install the flex pipe the correct way or it hit the subframe.

Exactly. The factory Gasket is more then adequate for the job.

I added custom subframe exhaust mounts to solve the clearance issue on the flexpipe. Besides that I added 1" of pipe down the road to bring the dual exhaust back to the desired location.

Do you have a pic of your custom sub mount?

Is the sensor eliminator required? Also, what size are the bungs? I have ordered my obx header but I need to know what else I will have to have to install.

Exactly what you need. It allows you to pass OBD Emissions testing.

I wish there were a way to separate the banks for a true dual set up instead of a 4>1. Be nice to have 4>2>1, a Tri Y header.
