    Nice pipe setup's everybody. I myself like the budget route and make all of my own exhaust systems. The only exception is the system on my Riviera, it had 2 1/2" duals on it when I bought it from the manifolds back. I only added orginal Cherrybomb glasspacks and double ended (slash cut or megaphone flare) chrome tips from Napa. My Silverado is all stock now except for the 3 chamber muffler I just put on. My DD Civic is half stainless and aluminized 2" pipe to a stock Integra muffler.

    I like that setup it's simple and has an h pipe, never knew it just dumped at the axle though.

    This is the turbo downpipe I built for the Turbo Buick with two 3" mandrel U bends and straight 3" tube and a 3" collector. The turbo flange was made on a pattern maker at M-tec in about 3 mins and was free. I bought the flanges for the wastegate and then finished it with 1 1/2" J mandrel bend.

    This is my current setup looking at it from the front of the car.

    JBA ceramic longtubes, catted shorty H pipe, stock over the axle pipes with staggered Magnaflow 10416 mufflers to act as resonators, and then out back a Hooker Aerochamber axle back.

    I added the Magnaflows with the headers to keep the noise from being too much (I leave for work around 6:30 AM, I don't want all my neighbors to hate me). I'd love to do an off road H pipe but I'm pretty sure that would be too loud.

    Also I really like these Aerochambers...they give you a nice 2-chamber sound without that weird hollow sound that Flowmasters have. Also helps that I got the axle back for $130 on closeout

    Was looking at this thread and noticed that my truck's exhaust setup has changed a little. Now, it's the stock manifolds and cats down into dual pipes to the Tru-X. After that, it's open on the the driver's side. The passenger side still has the bullet, then is open as well. I guess last winter was a little rough on the pipes and they rusted pretty bad in a few spots. I just cut off the crap that had fallen and left the rest. I wish it would have left the bullet on the drivers side too, but oh well. That muffler was too trashed to reuse anyway. With that muffler gone, you get a little of that open pipe fart sound when it's cold, but the bullet on the other side drowns it out for the most part. I'll probably get a new set of mufflers eventually... just so they match, then dump them

    ^-- that sounds pretty cool a dual tone, heard systems like that before.
    The Corvair system is short, custom headers 3.5" collector, reducer to 2.5 then about 2' pipe then turbo mufflers and turn downs behind rear tires. I blew the passenger muffler apart already so it's getting upgraded to something that isn't decided yet.

    My dart has shorty headers with home fabbed (poorly) header pipes running into 2-1/2 pipes then to glass packs (some call them resonators) and then out 2-1/4 tail pipes.

    This is how the Lincoln exhausts...

    exhaust.jpg

    Kooks headers (not shown), SS 2-1/2" with QTP cutouts, single X pipe, Hooker mufflers with simple turndowns.

    The only thing I don't like is the 3-bolt collector flanges.

    those are pretty nice with classic glasspacks, I like the home made peices myself always one of a kind.
    Thats a nice setup on the MarkVIII too, Kooks are sweet but a PITA to install on a 4v

    I'm running an OBX 4-2-1 Race Header into a K-tellar 2.5" I.D. Stainless pipe kit with a Magnaflow resonator and 2.5" Vibrant Stealth muffler.

    ^--pretty nice, OBX makes decent pipes. I've installed two OBX headers and they fit and looked great. Those would be called tri-y's by older peoples.

    I'll get pics of the old and new setups, But Sunday I blew apart my other turbo muffler so they are both done on the Corvair. I bought a set of 409 stainless mufflers made by Rush they look and sound exactly like Magnaflow 11236 aside from being embossed with the Rush logo.
    So now it will be the 1 3/4" primary Stahl headers with 3.5" collectors reduced to 2.5" and these new Rush mufflers and turndowns.

    I took my stock cat-back off last night. I'm trading it this weekend for an aero-turbine. Until then, I'm running open pipe from about 2 feet behind the cats. I'm sure people are puzzled when they think they hear a 75 Scottsdale with cherry-bombs coming, and then see a pretty clean Silverado SS. A guy gave me a thumbs up and yelled "sounds nice" on the way to work this morning. I could barely tell him thank you because I was laughing so hard...
