I'm EXHAUSTED.... input on exhaust

I'm having a hard time trying to decide on the exhaust system for the deuce.

Here are my choices (that meet the early '60s theme of the car). All start with the sprint style headers I've already built.

The theme is a fenderless hot rod built in the early '60s. Not a rat rod but not a street rod either. Just a true HOTROD.



1. Easiest and least expensive: 20" turnouts with auger style mufflers.

2. Caps on the headers and full exhaust under the chassis with Flowmaster 40 series mufflers exiting just aft of the rear end.

3. Same system as #2 except Smithy's mufflers.


Any suggestions???

I voted number 3, but number 1 is cool too.

IMO, Flowmasters are so over done, but sound great and fit the personality of muscle cars, not street rods.

I enjoy the sound of Flowmasters on any vehicle that I am not riding in. If I am in a vehicle with more than one Flowmaster, I can not wait to get away from it. So who do you want to satisfy the most?

No way would I put a full exhaust under that chassis. Let the exhaust show and tell.

IMO, the whole thing says, "What you see is what there is. Back off!" Turnouts fit that. (Turn 'em up slightly and you can repeat that famous Marilyn Monroe scene with a blip of the throttle).

I didn`t vote, but if I did it would be 1 loud and clear. A classic deserves what it`s heritage had. When I was a younger man I liked flowmasters, my cutlass had straight pipes into flowmasters with no tailpipes. I went to pick up my girl at the airport with 3.23 gears and a turbo 350 at 75 mph, 140 miles. I couldn`t hear for the next several days thats when they had to go. Now I like a nice turbo muffler, I love the deep tone. Now in my pickup I can cruise in 5th gear at 75, not hear the exhaust and keep my hearing, and not have to say "WHAT?" when talking to anyone.

Caps with "Smitty's" would be more period correct with the turnouts fitting the mid to late 60's also.

For your comfort, the turnouts would work best.

I voted for the caps and "Smitty's" because that's what I would run.

I'm EXHAUSTED.... input on exhaust

Hey, I've accomplished the same Early Hemi Header, using a Patriot big block Chevy "sprint car" header & early Hemi flanges. I can see that y'r Chrylser is set back far enough to accomodate a sprint design. I had front wheel turning radius problems this round & opted for a Sanderson "Jayster design". Unless you are buliding a blown/or extremely radical early Hemi. They tend to get some piston slop w/ 2" primaries. Unfortunately for me I had to purchase my headers "non welded", in order to cut them up to fit the contour of my 35/36 Ply. After discussing header designs with numerous people, Jay at Sanderson seemed the most logical in convincing me to run 1 7/8" primaries. Unfortunately this requires "Bead Welding" the 1 7/8" mandrel bent pipes into the (over) 2" Early Hemi Chrysler flanges. I basiacally heated them up & pounded them out. You opt'd for a 60's rod, so a 4th shielded sidepipe is still an option. Simply run caps with 90 deg bends welded in for down flow charactoristics & turn them out b4 the rear wheels. ......anyway I'm interested in people's opinions. I've built my headers & am stuck in the same quarry ...... curious myself. I can't vote 'cause I can't make up my mind

Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

Although caps and Smithys would be totally period correct there just doesn't seem to be enough room to easily run the exhaust under the frame and tuck it up high enough for the exhaust pipes not to show. (One of my pet peeves is when the exhaust hangs down below the bottom of the frame rails.) So.... yesterday I ordered Patriot's 3 1/2" OD 20" long turnouts.

I'm going to wait till I have them in hand and decide what to do about mufflers. I have a set of glasspacks that I may cut down and modify to fit inside the collectors and turnouts but as stated earlier auger style mufflers is another option. I've been doing some research on the auger mufflers and it seems in order to quiet things down enough to be "legal" you need to run two of them on each side. Once I have the turnouts and can do some measuring to see if there's enough room I may go that direction. This is a "hotrod" so being really quiet isn't what this car is all about.

Centerline,A friend of mine did the same thing with the Smithy's.He welded some bolts on the out side of the Smithy's to get a good tight fit when he put them inside the 3.5 turnouts.Work out great,And sound good too....
