Post 80' Corvette Side Pipes

Looking for any information on installing side pipes on my 80' vette. Been searching for a couple of months, due to emissions some places don't appear to carry/advertise selling them for this year. It does appear that most models 68' oem replacements up may fit but not positive. I have a slightly modified 350 with stock 2" manifolds. I'm looking for something I can install directly to the minfolds and not use the factory or fiberglass covers. Any experience with or ideas will be greatly appreciated.

I had these on my 69 Corvette and really didn't care much for them. If you are not carefull getting into and out of the car you can burn your leg. You can get some cheap after market units that sell for about $300.00 to $400.00. Don't buy these as they will burn out in 2 to 3 years at the collector. A quality set will cost you between $1,000 and $1500. There are some states and areas that they are not legal. I tried to get on a federal military base one time to pick up a date, and the guard would not let me in because I had side pipes. How crazy is that? It was a lot simpler and cheaper to run the standard exhaust under the car so that is what I went back to.

side pipes

Try

I am thinking of doing the same thing in my '68. I am running a 427 so according to the Dyno software they are suppose to help out substantially. Hooker makes a set with 4" pipes. Let that engine breath. Good luck and please email me on your findings.

Check out SummitRacing.com

I know they had a set of sidepipes on there, although I dont believe they are Corvette side pipes. I don't remember the prices tho. Just an alternative.

Summit has them for the corvette...and you can also find them cheaper at

http://www.tireworldinc.com/products/WebPrices.htm

Do a search using the hooker part number which can be found on the Holley web site. Ebay may have some original types listed. I get the impression that they are not to difficult to install. Good luck...
