Exhaust Styling Options

I have a 1970-67-72 chevy. It has a 70 cab with 67 front clip and the frame off a 72. I moved the gas tank to the rear this should be my only obstacle to take into consideration.... I want to know in your "Hotrodding" Opinion what is the best

I actuall have a single inlet dual outlet muffler by borla. I heard alot of horror stories about in cab resonance when dumped underneath the cab, so I had the muffler installed underneath the bed. This setup allowed me to have good sound without too much resonance in the cab.

I am biased against turndowns...I've got a real high dollar stereo system in my v8 S10 and I like to hear it while I'm driving...

My setup consists of 2 1/4" true duals with some high flow turbo mufflers located under the bed, and dual tailpipes that run up tight underneath the bed and then 45 down and dump right at my roll pan...Sounds REAL good around town; you can still hear the cam and tell it's a v8, but when you get out on the interstate it is quieter than the V6 it used to have!!!

so the turn down kills the thump off your subs, well drowns them out anyways? I am putting nice, nice stuff in mine and would hate to just hear exhaust after putting in big money to hear the system!

Did you ever see trucks where they did the through the bed side? They built an oval metal trim ring and ran both through, it looked sweet.

yeah i was looking at that but not sure i want to cut on the body. I shaved the handles and sidemarkers and all. I like the nice smooth look, plus i just dont want to do the extra work. I am trying to finish my truck by graduation, so all my friends can see it and they will get off my back!! But yeah that does look sweet. I am going to do that to my next truck I think it will be a 55 chevy dunno but will definetly do that!!

Turn downs have downside

I used to be a big fan of turndowns until I moved to a house with a gravel driveway and now I can't ever leave my house with a clean car. Any time you have to drive down a gravel road or on a grass field for a show you end up kicking up alot of dust and debris. Just something to consider.

I'd take them all the way to the back but that is a personal preference. When dumped underneath they sound great driving around town but get on the highway at a constant speed and I don't think you would be happy. Seems like at 55mph the drone gets real annoying for any tunes or conversation. At least with the exhaust out the back you already know what it sounds like and you want everyone else to hear it. Also when it is dumped underneath it magnifies considerably in the eardrums and makes it hard to hear if something might be ticking / knocking in the engine. If you are handy with sheet-metal make some custom cutouts in the rear bumper and exit the exhaust thru there.

I have eleminated my interior resonance

Hey 70chevy, I think ive found the ultimate cure for cab noise. I have an 87 chevy with flowmaster 40 series single inlet dual outlet, strait runs about to my rearend and then has no pipe leaving the dual outlets, I get compliments on my sound all the time. This seems pretty ordinary, but there is a key here, u have to have the muffler mounted on its side (perpindicular to the floor of your bed) this sends the vibrations side to side instead of againts your truck. Inside i can listen to my radio, carry on a conversation the only time i can even hear it inside, is when i really womp on it. but yet it has a very deep powerful rumble to it outside. In my opinion this is the best way to go. Goodluck let us know what you decide
