Need an exhaust system

I am in need of an exhaust system. Anyone have any recommends. Car is a 68 Camaro with Doug's headers. I do not want excessively loud mufflers. I want tail pipes to exit in the original positions.

Re: Need an exhaust system

Can't beat Gardners for original. Magnaflow kits fit well and are no crazy loud. Pypes = Junk. Lots of fit issues.

I would look for a transverse muffler system to keep it quiet.

I have experience with all three.

Thrush (dynomax) makes a transverse muffler sysem that flows a lot better than stock :

American Thunder is loud, I've got one. Go to a car show, I guarantee someone will have that system since it is so popular and relatively inexpensive and you can hear it before you buy it.

Re: Need an exhaust system

I had a local shop bend a dual system with 2.25" aluminum pipe and installed Summit mufflers. I was surprisingly impressed with the Summit mufflers(Flowmaster look-a-likes). Had $250. in the complete cost for my SS 69 Chevelle. I would check with some local shops that can bend the pipes to your liking.

Summit actually sells a nice header back kit. It's mandrel bent and fits well.

A buddy of mine has a nice 67 Camaro. When he got it several years ago, he was on a limited budget as far as upgrades. It had headers but had a ratty compression bent exhaust with those old school Cherry Bomb glass packs. That might have sounded good in 1980, but he hated it. Rather than have a local Midas or Meineke do another compression bent system, he bought the Summit mandrel bent kit for about $225.00. It included free shipping and was a decent kit.

A few of us spent a Saturday afternoon installing it and when it was all said and done, he had a nice mandrel bent kit that sounded a lot better than those old glass packs. I'm not sure what the Summit kit costs these days, but it might be an inexpensive alternative to a $500-$600 kit from other manufacturers.

Re: Need an exhaust system

Summit is $199. and is probably made by one of the major companies. Like I said not spit difference between the Summit on the 454 Chevelle and the Flowmaster system on my 454 Camaro. Same engines and a bunch cheaper!

Re: Need an exhaust system

I'm not sure what Summit kit you're talking about, but Summit sells a dual exhaust system made by Hooker. The set comes without mufflers. It's made for manifolds or headers. I've used it a couple of times on different vehicles. It fit well and was well made. Best of all, the pipes are right around $200-225. You'll need mufflers.

Go visit your local muffler shop(s) and get prices to have them fabricate you something based on what you want. A good shop will know their mufflers and be able to fit the pipes under your car and exit where you want with little effort and will back up there work.

Re: Need an exhaust system

Flowmaster mufflers are notorious for drone. I would not use them if you do not want something loud and irritating.
