Oops, sorry, that was Brett who mentioned the angle of the header.

Being in Texas I probably won't make the next JH gathering but might be fun to have a blind exhaust test and see which gets the most votes. Even better, see if you can recognize the sound of your own car blindfolded.

Just to add to my old post about the cat. converter I didnt realize at the time but the drivers side floor pans on cars equiped with it have a raised section for clearance. I replaced that floor pan with a Delta pan and it didnt have that raised section but It didnt registar at the time I did it and that was the reason I could no longer use the heat sheild. If you ever get a chance to inspect a GT take a look you will see the tell tale hump.

Just a quick note on your install.
Check the joints.  This is a bolt together system.  Mine was installed for me by people who claimed to be professionals.  It was difficult for them, and it had leaks at every joint.  I didn't know that until several months later when I found black soot at every joint.
Hope yours came out well.

Great idea! Trying to figure this one out without wasting a bunch of dough (more than was already wasted!) is making my head spin.

Thanks, I will definitely check the joints for leaks. As soon as I get it back on pavement again!

Dave Bean has NOS units still available, and at a fair price. It's a straight-through design, double-in/double out, so probably not giving up too much going this route. It's stainless, a nice surprise.

Terrible build quality; the tips are not parallel and the welding looks like maybe I did it. Kind of charming, actually.

I did this recording of the sound of the Delta exhaust just for fun. The sound of the valves kind of overpowers the exhaust!

And yes, the muffler is cockeyed. I need to fix that. None of the original mounts were there and I was using off-the-shelf crap from Autozone none of which was quite what I needed.

Crikey! You should have a look at those shims, sumthin' ain't right... Your idle's a bit high too, but I guess you already know that.

Your exhaust looks like mine, but the sound is quite different. Mine snarls, this sounded a bit mellow. Make another video and give it some stick?
