Reason I ask is that its going to cost me around $350 to get to the UK including customs charges so I can't afford to get it wrong. Also looking at a different muffler (upgraded and maybe a tad louder) but struggling to find one that matches the existing which is cylindrical, 20" long as has a top inlet and bottom outlet (both 3") and has the number 15666316 stamped on the bottom of it - any recommendations? Also shoud I replace the CAT which is flat (around 18" long and 12" wide by arppox 3.5" tall) and has AC, Made in USA on the bottom of it - again any recommendations. Hopefully get better mpg and with the bonus of additional torque. Engine has done 59k miles.
Also need a new O2 sensor so loking at a Bosch - think its a 15726 from Summit Racing. Thanks in advance.
A curious note here, why the oxygen sensor, do you plan on adding a programmable efi system on this rv?
Header material and wall thickness is critical to long term survival..
