Angry bad news... Duel Exhaust not available!

So i went to my local meineke wherewe they do custom work and they said they cannot do a dual exhaust out of the muffler (single inlet dual outlet) unless you have a lift. they cant fit two pipes over whatever they have to fo over unless you are up. So this means i am gettin my lift first, but that makes me ask another question, is there a lift that doesnt level off the xk and keeps it looking mean??

Those could be just a pipe that Y's by the rear axle with the spare removed.

I asked for dual, too. They said it couldn't be done because of the position of the gas tank..

Yeha guys, those are just Y's. They said that wouldn't be a problem. But I was looking for either true duals or a single inlet dual outlet setup that apparently cannot be done unless lifted, and they still weren't sure but "thought" they could do it if lifted.

Single inlet, dual outlet is just a Y. What are you defining as "just a Y" and how is it different than what you're wanting other than the location of the Y?

You do know that going to dual exhaust would not be a performance mod, just for the sound, right?

Just a Y is one pipe in the muffler and one out over the rear axle as it is now and then the one pipe Splits "Y" out to two outlets. Unfortunately mostly for looks as they cant do true dual but chopping off the ole Coffin and resonator will help some.
