Welcome to forums...
The new twin system does not have H or X pipes. It's just standard pipes 2 1\4" from the extractors to the 2 1/4" Lukey mufflers and then to the back of the car with 2 1/2" SSteel tips.
I'm not going back to this exhaust guy as he sounds quite vague and me not knowing much about exhaust systems makes things worse.
All I wanted was to put a twin system with extrators to make the engine breath easier and get a nice deep 302 Windsor note to it.
That is what I asked for but didnt get it.
Perhaps the 2 1/4 " pipes are too big and I should have gone 2".
What do you think?
Anyway what is done is done now.
Im going to ring round a few places and see if a H pipe or resonators will quieten the system down.
Failing that I will get the pipes wripped out and go 2" which is plenty for a 302 Windsor and what I propose to do with it in the near future
ie strip the engine, freshen it up, add a lumpy cam with 4 barrel carb and manifold and stage 1 shift kit for the auto box.
