I do not have any experience with their dual kit, but I do have their 3" single on my 88TC.

I spent 2 hours lining everything up. We swore it was never going to fit without making some modification, but it did finally fit EXACTLY right. It would only work if everything was tweaked the right way, and one little mis-alignment on one of the joints made the rest of it look completely out of wack. I was forwarned about this before I got my kit, so I was very patient, and it ultimately fell into place.

A few tips....The car must be sitting at ride height, weight on the rear axle....The muffler is not lined up parallel to anything, but is more of a straight shot from the intermendiate pipe to the over axle pipe....Mount the tailpipe first as a point of reference as mine used the stock hangar....The biggest point of adjustment and tweeking was in the joint between the over axle pipe, and the tailpipe...We did have to tweek the hangars on my stock downpipe a little to get some additional driveshaft clearance, but some careful measurement from my 87 showed that the rods on the 88 were bent up 1/2"+. (probably bottomed out)

I hope this helps.

I have the ATR dual kit. Fit perfect out of the box as far as pipe shape and clearance goes. Only problem was the half assed way the instructions said to hang the tail pipes. I just fabbed up my own set of hangers, which worked much better than the ATR way.

I got mine from Motion Dynamics.

How does the dual exhaust sound. I have been thinking about getting this set up and the sound is very important in my purchase. Thanks
