Exhaust Suggestions...

What is the best possible Exhaust system I could throw on my 351 Cleveland..

I have had a few different suggestions.. And I wouldn't know..

Suggestion 1. Twin 2.5 Inch exhaust with 2 walker mufflers and 2 walker hot dogs with Balance pipe (Hot dog resonators? Half car, mufflers right at back.)

Suggestion 2. Twin 2.5 inch with 2 straight through mufflers at the back

Suggestion 3. Twin 2.5 inch, with 2 mufflers and dump pipes under the car

Suggestion 4. Single 2.5- 2.7 inch with Straight through muffler...

Now the sound I want is a Smooth deep V8 note, No tin, hollow, cackling or overrun (spitting, farting ect)...

I don't want heaps of sound, Just a nice deep idle, and a bit of a V8 purr when revving...

I would like suggestions please... The best I have Heard so far was apparently a 2.5 inch with straight through single...

Re: Exhaust Suggestions...

Is the motor standard or warmed up?

Has it got headers? What type?

Do you want it to sound good or go good?

Re: Exhaust Suggestions...

Vote for suggestion 2 too, but with X cross-over pipe and not a H cross-over pipe (same note but more torque). The Lukey Race Series mufflers sound great. I was never that happy with the sound of my Walker Super Turbo, but it was a single system. You don't need resonators.

Re: Exhaust Suggestions...

What do you mean by X cross over pipe, and what is the average cost of a twin exhaust ...

Re: Exhaust Suggestions...

I was told $500 for a twin system with 2 mufflers.

H pipe - the twin system runs a pipe connecting each side to balance the system in the shape of the letter H

X pipe - the twin system join briefly and go their seperate ways, in the shape of the letter X
