Flowmaster RV exhaust system

Hello Everyone
We installed a Flowmaster system kit 17240 on our 325 last week.
We went for a short 300 mile run on some hills and 4 lane roads.
This exhaust system made quite adifference in power and cooling of the engine. I have had a Banks system on two prevous 454's and this flowmaster seems every bit as good as the banks.
My question is how to plumb a ram air kit into the engine compartment of our 1985 325.

Why did you go with Flowmaster and not Banks?

why Flowmaster

We chose flowmaster because we wanted to try a dual exhaust upgrade.
Banks is a super company but the aluminized system for this year has become quite expensive either direct or from camping world.
Our kit cost $ 949 Canadian $$ with freight and taxes delivered to our door. Banks and camping world will not ship this large item into Canada we would have pick up in Michigan.
The flowmaster kit includes #70 mufflers with 4 heat sheilds plus all parts for mounting and chrome tips.
The banks system delivered to Michigan was$1170 canadian without taxes(15 %).
This system does not include manifolds.
