and heres what happened........a day later.

nothing bad, nothing close to bad, just made a video of the exhaust note as a few people have asked me on other forums for a video with these mufflers once it was running. they are not clamped, nor welded.....so they blow air before the muffler a little I think (notice the paper). I will get that taken care of when possible. Anyways....for a clip.

Wasn't aware people from the hood could afford decently new cars. Congrats. I wouldn't doubt you drilled holes through out the exhaust for your new hood ride to sound nice.

sorry, im no hillbilly redneck craving loud exhaust. only reason it has been cut off at the cab is the tubes weren't mandrel bent and I didn't like how they were done, tips and all.

figured as much.


as for a "muscle sound" a lopey truck with long tubes built for a truck.....isnt a muscle sound IMO. I have always said trucks have a VERY distinct sound compared to cars. Cars sound 10x better and I wish I would have swapped over to an EFI motor just so it was a roller car motor. All is well though, I hope to have a built 351 or 390 when it's FULLY done. I don't think I will ever get rid of this one, only because it's a first, and everything done to it is by me. Only shop it will see is paint.

straight pipes sound like a loose ******* ripped a big fart. i had them, hated them, put mufflers on to get away from them and couldnt be happier. being a redneck well....if you have to ask, you wouldnt understand why its so bad.
