NOS Superior exhaust installed....

I picked up the new NOS Superior system of fleabay for $200. Installed it today and only had to remove the tab from the squish pipe and cut about 1/4" off the rear down pipe. I won't know what it sounds like until I get a new front engine pulley for the primary.

Chopped850!

Sorry I haven't a clue about modern carbs, but...

That muffler was the 'bee's knees, cat's meow, etc. etc!

I even ran one for years on one of my many Datsun pickups.
(of course it was a dented one. So was the truck.)

It's pretty quiet now compaired to the drags. But I'm sure when the packing burns and blows out it'll be alittle louder. But the bottom end of the motor is unreal!

Dear Chopped850.
If you are real real good with a stick welder you can turn it up real high and go in real deep from the rear and cut that whole baffle out and punch it out the front. I dont remember them having glass packs.

Bottom end is where its at!,,

On the later mufflers I've used a 1 3/4" hole saw to cut the welds holding the baffle in place from the rear then it just pulls out. Nice thing is you can always tack weld it back in if you want...Mike

Chopped850: Cool ride...am thinking on tackling exhaust now, major dilema. The upswepts were of a time long past, guess they are pretty loud (attracts unwanted law enforcement types). Perhaps baffled...but your style looks to good to rule out. Nothing will ever fit, no matter what version one acquires....chop, cut & rebuild! Noticed your upper oil lines; 2x vent lines (cut) to match the return line curves, keeps all in harmony...thought my creativity was a solo venture. Esthetics...all good -Ride Free-
