Billy Boat Exhaust manufactures hand-fabricated x-pipes in both 2 1/2″ and 3″ to help the LS! and LS1 C6 engine breath. These x-pipes will smooth out the exhaust pulses of your engine and give you a cleaner exhaust note and additional horsepower. These are also available with catalytic converters if you have headers and also resonators to help tune the exhaust sound level.

With proper installation, your new Billy Boat Exhaust system will last a lifetime. While installation of this product is very simple and straight forward, there are a couple areas that need some attention.
#1- Secure vehicle to wheel lift.
#2- With the car safely lifted and chocked remove the nuts and bolts that hold the roll bar and lower the anti-roll bar from the center chassis mounts. It is not necessary to completely remove the bar; it just needs to be moved in order to get the axle hoops out. (Note: if just replacing the center section or x-pipe section, the anti-roll bar will not have to be moved.)
#3- Unbolt the flanges located at the front of the factory center pipe. Then remove the nuts that are holding the spring hangers at the rear of the center pipes. Loosen clamps on rear of center pipe. Pull center pipe back off the donuts at the front of the exhaust system. Lower center pipe down and pull forward off the front of the mufflers and set aside. (Note: if just replacing the center section or x-pipe section, the mufflers do not have to be removed.)
#4- To remove the mufflers, pull the hangers through the rubber mounts and lower the mufflers down and unwrap from over the axle. You may have to move the mufflers to one side or the other to get them out.
#5- Position the new muffler/axle hoop system into place. Then insert the mounting hook into the factory rubber hanger. Mate the muffler/axle hoop system to the center pipe (Billy Boat X-Pipe if used) in the reverse order of removal and just tighten them enough to still allow for movement while aligning the system. *But do not tighten them completely.
#6- With all components in place, use a straight edge along the bottom of the tips for proper alignment. Keeping in mind that it will take some time to align them correctly.
#7- Then start by tightening the flanges in front of the system first and then the nuts, bolts and clamps connecting the muffler sections making sure everything is still in alignment.
#8- Fire the car up and take it for a spin around the block making sure there are no rattles.
#9- After logging on a few hundred miles re-torque your work.
