  1. Hotrodding Basics
    I'm building a '67 Fairlane, 351W, long tube headers and trying to decide if I should bring the exhaust out behind the rear wheels or out under the rear bumper. I'm concerned that the side exit will be much louder and annoying. I don't want my "passenger" reminding me every ten miles that the...

    In searching what's available for electric cutouts I'm finding prices from $200 to $800 - quite a range. I'm concerned the lower priced units will not seal properly or the electrics will fail prematurely. If anyone has experience with some of the lower priced units - good or bad - I'd...

Put some R44T spark plugs and changed the spark plug wires and replaced the coil on my distributor. My problem is i finally connected the exhaust to the engine and i go to start it...

    Im currently running open longtube headers. I've got a big lumpy cam and its earth shakingly loud, too the point where im setting off car alarms when I drive by some high-end vehicles. I'd like it to be a little quieter while still sounding throaty and testosterone filled. I don't mind the loud...

    Yes, you read me right. I said "quad exhaust." No, I'm not crazy. I'm just....... Not normal. **slaps knee and laughs** anyways I have a '78 C10 now (I sold the Camaro) and want to put in an exhaust, just don't know how to do it..... Basically I want 4 exits. Two in front of the rear wheels, and...

    I have been reading up on exhaust pulse and exhaust header building in general. One thing that keeps nagging at me is that the primaries are all the same diameter on 180 degree headers that I keep finding. As you can imagine most of them are custom. Yet, they all seem to have the same diameter...

    I have a 1979 Camaro with a 383, K1103 summit cam, 882 performance heads, 4 speed manual, long tube headers true duals( 2.25) with super 44s and turndowns. The exhaust is way to small. I was thinking 2 1/2 but want the 3" for the loudness and a 2 years down the road I want to turbo it. I was...

    So I was wondering if cutting 2 feet off my pipes would do anything for me in terms of power? Or would it just be a waste of my time? They're 2.5 inch straight pipes about 6ft long with 1.5 inch primary shorty headers.. Also my headers glow red hot. They're wrapped in DEI heat wrap. Is that...

    newish poster, long time lurker here. I have an LT1 and would like to run mid/long tube headers and keep my cat on my daily driver, however I've read on the internet it seems that headers (specificly long tube) and a cat can cause problems like early cat fouling. Does anybody here run long...
