LM muffler in EM car
Posted by: VaiRon ()
Date: May 14, 2018 08:39AM

I'm replacing the muffler in my '62 Monza and, since the engine is a '67, I'm installing a LM muffler and mount. My question is how to orient the muffler: vertically, at an angle or horizontally. Right now it best fits the space and mount if I fit it horizontally, but not sure that's the best way to do it. How was this muffler installed in the '64s?

64's use a round muffler if I recall correctly.

Yes but 64 Turbo's used a large oval unit. I slightly bent the inner quarter panel brace and install LM mufflers on EM's all the time.

Not according to the information I have. LM oval muffler was installed with the new larger engine in '64. In addition, that's how they're listed on the vendor's sites. Any '64 owners out there with the LM muffler installed?

Downloaded the '64 "fuel and exhaust" section and it shows the muffler installed horizontally. Thanks for the input.
