Muffler help
Posted by: Mason H ()
Date: December 09, 2009 08:06PM

I have been looking at things on Clark's for a Christmas list and i remembered i need a new muffler since mine is rusted out, which is weird because there isn't really a lot of other rust on the car. But anyways, i found the welded dual muffler on Clark's and it says for all engines for 60-69 except 140's and turbos. i have a 110, but mine is only a single muffler how hard is it to use the dual? or is there really no work needed to make it work?
Thanks in advance, Mason

Clark's made it pretty easy for ya.

Unbolt your factory "Y" pipe at the exhaust manifolds.
Unbolt your muffler strap.
Remove your old exhaust system.

Now...
Bolt the first muffler onto one of the exhaust manifolds.
Bolt up the muffler strap.
Repeat on the other side.

I think the only modification you might have to do is to drill a hole for the muffler strap on the drivers side of the car. (Installation of all exhaust doughnuts is implied) ggg.

Is your car a PG? if so you don't want duals.. unless you add a large balance pipe.

You heard, you heardeye rolling smiley ! I run duals in my 64 PG, way better than a single stock crappy muffler , it's the way to go, man , best affordable upgrade you can do to your Powerglide or 4-speed !Right away, I noticed the performance .Myself, I don't even run stock ones, they are too heavy,and there's a lot of restriction. I run some aftermarket ones, pretty quiet with a nice rumble, you can adapt some cool chrome tips.have fun installing your dual system, stock or aftermarket, and keep it rolling, peace out !

Mason, do you just need a muffler? or is the crossover pipe rotted as well?

If only a muffler.. find a Flowtech Raptor.... many local FLAPS carry them, or Summit / Jegs do...

Get a 2" and have a shop make a swedge / adapter...

nice sound on a single and way less restriction than a stocker! As the Rafman sez!

IME, duals with open mufflers really sap low end torque and tend to sound "ratty" in a PG. I much much prefer a modern turbo muffler on the stock crossover.

Gives you much better peak power without hurting the low end... and it sounds great, too.

Matt- i only need the muffler, thats the only part rotted through. and waht dies this swedge/adapter look like? i do welding at school a lot and could maybe fab one after school one day, if its that kind of thing.

I think i'm just going to go with that Flowtech, i just googled it and they are incredibly cheap, well compared to the one at Clark's that was like $120

ok so if i make one of those, looks easy enough. the outlet diameter, from where it attaches to the y-pipe right?, needs to be 1- 7/8" then the inlet where it should attach to the muffler needs to be a little bigger than the end on the muffle so it fits right, but ideally i want a muffler with a 2 inch inlet?

thats a good idea. after i get a new muffler, which is a lot cheaper than i (well my dad) had thought, ill measure the inlet then go to the shop early or stay after and make it real fast. shouldn't be too hard. thanks for the help.

so this one should be an ok one to getFLAPS muffler?

Mason,

not sure where you're getting your prices from but a single stock replacement muffler is only $65 bucks from Clark's. Yeah it's still more than the FLAPS muffler but it ain't no $120 bucks.

yea i was looking at the welded dual muffler, so i am assuming that one is more than just a replacement stock one

Will the Flowtech Raptor mount to the stock muffler mount?
