Updated photos-Dual Exhaust

Hi everyone:

Attached are some updated photos of my dual exhaust. I had the exhaust shop cut 3 1/2 inch holes in the rear lower valance panel and routed the exhaust pipes to the holes and finished it off with 3 inch stainless tips and chrome trim rings.

I am running tuned equal length headers into 4" round Magnaflows.

The sound is awesome.

Looks great! Is the sound difference between equal and unequal length headers on a 'Vair engine as drastic as it is on a Subaru engine?

Very nice! Reminds me of my '63 Corvette, that I converted from factory side pipes to the same set up as you.

Did you angle cut the ends of pipes to match the angle of the valence panel?

Hi:

Yes, the tips are angle cut and match the body lines, but you can not see it from the pictures.

The tips extend past the opening about an inch.

This header/muffler combination has a deeper sound than the ones sold by Clark's.

I know some people would not cut the body, but if you want this look you have no choice. I know its my car, but must say I really like this look. It gives the car a very clean look.

You are right about that. Decals or airbrush just wouldn't be the same.

I think that looks great. I wouldn't do the hole cutting deal, but it does look nice and I'm glad somebody has the guts for it.

Where did you source the headers from? What size are the primary tubes and collectors? Can I assume the 3" tip is larger than the collector?

I'd thought of cutting holes, too, but in the sides. I enjoy dual exhaust that exits on opposite sides at a slight rearward angle. Surely it'd sound awesome on a 'vair!


Please, if you can grab a vidjo w/ a 'loaded' ground-level fly-by (uphill, please!), I'm sure we'd all LOVE to hear it!

Awesome! What are the chrome rings off of, or are they aftermarket? I'm not one for cutting sheet metal but that looks completely factory! Other than another Corvair owner nobody would think it wasn't.
