Saturday I finally had some time from doing repairs and could do an upgrade. Whatch think?

Wired it up and had a shop weld on the hangers this morning.






Final results.............






Much louder, maybe to loud. Would be pretty simple to swap the mufflers the way I had it hung. We will see.

Looks good! Loud is OK for me if it doesn't have crackle at WOT or drone on freeway.

I've got another complete system from my parts car and when I swap motor in I am going to make cat free front pipes and use resonaters off old system to replace mufflers. Hillbilly hot rod on the cheap.

It drones with the windows open at 3500 rpm pretty bad, but should be quite at highway speeds. Crackles when you down shift Very Happy

I've never had a V8 car that was too loud. The louder it gets, the more I giggle like a schoolgirl.

Well, too loud when we all jump in it and go on a family vacation for 3 hours. But yes giggle'ing is happening often. Couple loud exhaust with double clutching on down shifts and you'd think I a high school girl talking about boys.

I loved my 350 Blazer with longtubes and thrush glasspacks bolted to the header flange. 46 inches from head to tip of exhaust.

When engine was cold on fire up, car alarms would go off all around me Smile

Pics are worthless in this thread we need sound bites!!!

235 55 17 - They work well but mileage stinks. They are supposed to be 90k tires and I will be lucky to see 35k. The fronts wore on the inside and outside and they were kept inflated 38-42 psi ALL the time. Discount tire replaced 2 for me.

The mic on my phone cannot handle the base so it is VERY poor sound clip. And it is upside down. OK I AM NOT A COMPUTER GENIUS.

If the noise and drone get to you, I went from this,


To using these tips and it made a big difference. Just wish they were stainless instead of chrome.

It drones bad at 3500 with the windows down,.

I have to break down a get a dyno tune on the car to make it what I want. Maybe an x pipe or quieter mufflers.
