You all convinced me. I tossed the 2.5" exhaust with tailpipes and went to this combination... hooker 1 7/8 super comps with 3.5" collectors, 3.5" cutouts (easy open exhaust at the track ), reduced to 3" pipe leading back to flowmaster delta flow 2 chambers with 3" turndowns in front of the rear axle. My new pulleys finally came in, and I got them on today. It's a real balancing act here between work, trying to study for school (finals next week ), and fixing the car, but I do believe I'll finally get it cranked tomorrow night. A friend of mine is picking up the car Friday night to do all the exhaust work for me. After that, I'll just be an alignment away from raising hell again.

Ugh! Her bf and her dad BOTH have mullets! I just know I'm going to see them pull up in a rusted out Chevy (either be a nova, a late 2nd gen camaro, or a mid 70s C10). Just think about how many 78 Z28s 60 million will buy.

Yeehaw! Anyway, I was just wondering... how loud really is this exhaust going to be? I imagine it'll be a head rattler, but not too bad with the delta flow 2 chambers. But when I open up those cutouts...

All years, too, and with all the Grand Ams thrown as a bonus.

Hey Neal,
I'd guess it won't be THAT loud thru the 'FLOWS, but it will be with the cutouts open. I'd guess that the amount of 'loudness' will be due to the exhaust dumping under the car and causing a 'drumming effect' between the car underside and the pavement. If you can, tip your turndowns toward the bottom of the rear tires so as not to point straight down to the ground - that should help reduce the noise level inside the car a little when your not using the cutouts...

What about a crossover pipe?

Lets just say you will not want to take any long trips 3" is loud no matter where you take the tail pipes. However, I bet it sounds nice.

Trips to reduce the loudness?? Heck no!! I'm 21 -- I'm still young and immature! (Well, at least I know and admit it). I like it loud! I don't want to get tickets on a weekly basis and have a clean driving record now, but IMHO if a muscle car isn't shaking the ground and doesn't turn heads everywhere it goes, it's a bit of a disappointment.

Neal,
I hope you aren't planning on listening to any type of radio/tape/CD system...? That may be tuff to do if you've got it running down the road at 2500 rpms!

Personally I like to simply listen to the stereo of the duels...!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 3" exhaust w/turndowns on my car is only loud at idle and when the throttle is stomped. At cruise, it isn't that bad at all.

Good Luck!

Well, the guy doing my exhaust finished up last night. He's got a few other little things to do, then I'll get the car back. Apparently it is pretty loud at idle -- he described it as being a little louder than his old engine (89 GT running 12.20s on motor with longtubes, 2.5" pipe, flowmaster 1 chambers, and turndowns). Apparently it'll be a real head rattler, but that's fine.

I do like my music, but I'm going to put in a 50 watt cd deck to power the speakers inside the car (currently have pioneer 6x9s on the back deck -- am adding 4x6s to the doors) and will use a small amp with 1 12" sub in the truck for a little added bass. I don't want anything overwhelming, just something with good overall sound. But yes, I used to listen to the good ole flowmaster tunes a lot more than the radio before and I imagine that habit will continue.
