exhaust suggestions

I have a 79 corvette with a 350 in it with stock manifolds. I was just wondering what type of exhaust you guys would recomend for my car.
I was really looking for something with a real deep, aggressive tone.

Dynomax super turbos have always been good to me. Smooth idle sound but will still bark when you get on it. They even made an inline six sound halfway decent. Best thing they are cheap too(about $40-70 offset dependent).
If you want to spend a ton of money spintechs have a real nice sound. They go for the $150-180 range. A lot of people run a two into one on them, save $$$$.

I use the Flowmaster's, they are load with a BB, the stainless Magnaflows are mellow deepish and will look great in the back. A crossover pipe makes it sound very even also...Good luck..

Doc here,

Ditto on the flowmaster 40/50 series..and system.

I have them on mine.

The only draw back is a "Sympathetic" Vibration between 1200 and 1500 RPM's throughout the cabin area..and it will rattle the kitchen windows on the other side of the house on a "Cold Idle" start in the mornings.

The REAL fun part, Is a slow cruise down main street, Lighting off "CHEAP" car alarms as you pass by..

Doc

I agree with the chambered mufflers.Flowmasters sound good but I like the set that I built a lil better. If you want obnoxiously loug get dynomak bullets

I've got a friend with Dynomaxes on his '68 Dart. We both agree that they're a bit much. I have glasspacks on my Nova and I think they're a little bit quieter.

I think the deepest sounding muffler you will find is the dynomax ultraflo. Check out the sound clips, http://72.51.34.169/soundsofdynomax/...tent/menu.html

Flowmasters have always sounded tinny to me. You can listen to just about every muffler made at http://www.exhaustsoundclips.com/phpbb2/dload.php

use the largest diameter pipe with a mello muffler
ie 2.5 diameter with 50 series flowmaster

just keep in mind if you do replace your manifolds with headers it WILL get louder
