Needed, Header Template
Posted by: American Mel ()
Date: October 05, 2018 10:31PM

Does anybody have the instructions/template for modifying the lower shrouds for use with headers?
The Moredoor came with headers installed on it and no lower shrouds installed.
With winter fast approaching, I would like to try and have at least some minimal heating in the car.
Short of going back to factory logs, any suggestions out there?

Van Pershing wrote a nice article plus pics of shroud modifications in the COMMUNIQUE a few years ago. Look in CORSA website for the article. I believe around year 2000.

Nawh!
I am having too much fun waking the ENTIRE community in the morning when I fire her up to go to work.
PO was an old-school hot rodder, and liked things LOUD!
Headers, and large diameter FlowMasters that end right at the bumper.
With that 140 lope, it sounds like a V8 Race .
Has some serious drone too!
It is actually louder than I like, any suggestions out there on how to quiet it down a bit, without doing a complete muffler change?

Long curved Tailpipes! And if that doesn't do it.... Make a disc baffle for the tailpipe.. drill 1/4" holes in it.

If you like LOUD, oversized fart cans work well.

NO!
I want it softer.
But being a Corvair owner, I do not want to spend good money on new mufflers, when these are still pretty much new.
