    My First total install

    A few misc items have to be completed still. I was looking to learn more abou the trade so I decided the best way to learn was to dive in. I have to change the drip leg I know and finish some insulating. The plenum has a 10" inch duct coming off each side for the trunklines. Trane xr90. Not perfect but good for zero experience. A lot of research. Looking to start taking classes at local trade school.

    But I also didn't stick it on the wall of pride either. Gas piping needs to be straightened.

    Your gonna get those kinda replies. You need to go to school and work in the trade. The enthusiasm is great. Need to learn as much as possible before installing or service. Tradesman don't like it when you post pictures of install without prior experience. Good luck.

    No, both pipes take a 90 into the furnace.
