    Exhaust suggestions

    I have a 1980 el camino with a 350 (planning on going 383 soon). I was looking for suggestions on how to update my exhaust setup. Right now, I have true duals going straight out the back. The biggest problem I have with this (aside from looks) is that sometimes the back of the car bottoms out...

    Exhaust Help Needed- Intermediate Pipe

    Lucky that an exhaust forum has been added. I'm adding a new exhaust system, including muffler. There seems to be only Walker exhaust pipes available. So, I purchased the tail pipe (43770) and intermediate pipe (47577). My question is what is the "cut-off" bracket on the intermediate pipe and...

    Header/exhaust decision...

    Hey guys, Long time lurker, first real post on this forum. I have an '81 Calais with a 260 - and as all you fellow 260 owners know, it has to go. I bought a 1970 Olds 350 from a reputable friend who knows his stuff - it's a clean mild build that will be tons of fun for a cruiser and will...

    Exhaust attaches to frame or body?

    Hi All! So...Actually considering DIY-ing a lot more of my restomod if I can find a house with a workshop (or room for one). The prices on two-post lifts are actually not that bad, so if I can get approval for one where I move to, I'm thinking of trying to do the body/frame separation myself...

    Cutlass Supreme Exhaust System Questions

    Hey Gbody Crew, I wanted to order this 2.5” dual exhaust system from Jeggs for my 1979 Olds Cutlass Supreme Brougham, but upon looking at the website it says it doesn’t fit on the Cutlass Supreme. I posted the question on the Jegg’s site and I got a response that the Cutlass Supreme Sub-Frame...

    Cats or no cats?

    Just curious how many of you still run catalytic converters on your G-bodies. For those of you outside California and other states with strict smog laws, it's probably an easy decision, but for those of us living in Peoples' Republics, it's "living dangerously" to go cat-less. Also, what engines...

    Engine tick or exhaust tick? - UPDATED

    So I changed the oil on the Monte. Let it run for about a minute and I revved it up to about 2,500 rpm when I suddenly heard a ticking sound. Specs: Iron 350 w/vortec heads, flat tappet cam and lifters. Ceramic coated Flo Tech headers, split lock header bolts, 2.5 exhaust with high flow cats...

    New exhaust

    So I finally got new exhaust. Night time is before, daylight is after. As you can see, my old pipes had about 3in of clearance from the pavement lmao. They were also bent to hell from hitting speed bumps, rusted a little, had the stock cat, and a QTP cutout that I thought was cool so I put it...

    Side Pipes!

    I have a set of side pipes on my El Camino that originally came with fiberglass packed baffles that stretched the whole length of the car. When I did my motor swap, I wanted to squeeze every bit of power out of the new motor as possible so I decided to remove those restrictive baffles. Now I...

    FYI: Cross Over Pipe for the 260 Olds

    I got an exhaust leak on the left manifold. I found out that the flange rotted and caused the cross over pipe to slip a bit and caused an exhaust leak. First I thought the pipe needed to be replaced, but the 260 uses a smaller diameter pipe compared to the 350/307. It is under 2 inches! This...

    Intro and Various Questions

    Hey Guys, I bought a 78 Malibu a few months ago, and after running a 300hp 350 infront of my 200r4 decided to buy a 406 with trick flow heads and a slightly choppy hydrualic flat tappet. My dad and I swapped in the new engine last week and after drving it a little we've come to the conclusion...

    New dual exhaust/emissions questions

    Hey everyone, got a 79 Monte, I'm thinking of ordering a new duel exhaust and headers kit from jegs. It's a bolt on deal set up. My only issue is I live in an emissions city and my car has a cat on it. The kit has no cats and not finding one that comes with them. I don't really want them anyway...

    Winter Build hell and suggestions

    What's going on guys, I'm starting my winter build. I've got a 350 I'm building to a 383 to put in my 82 Monte. With the 350 I ran 2.5 inch single exhaust. With the 383 I want to run 2.5 dual exhaust with Pypes x Pipe. Can I do this without getting the double humb crossmember. I'm on a tight...
