Nah, we got room for the pipes to between the tank and the springs for the pipes, will be doing some creative cutting and welding on the camaro tail pipes. Rather have reliability with the in tank fuel pump for the FI, and not hear the gas sloshing around behind me. Only loss will be the lack of a place for the spare tire but I may just mount it in the bed.

I was not able to add text to the above post/picture, however, I would certainly agree that some creative cutting will be required!

I do agree that converting the original tank to FI has its challenges.

Ha!

Pictures can be deceptive, another reason never to buy a car sight unseen!

Plenty of room for tail pipes back there as you shall see

I Agree, less noise in the cab more noise out the rear.... not sure how old you are but I'm 40 yrs old and I have also gained the same idea, I would rather listen to the radio or have a conversation than hear all that Racket... in my 20's & some of my 30's I would have disagreed with you but not now. It's FUNNY how LIFE WORKS OUT.. HUH !!!!

Thanks, hope I can make it worth reading!

It will be a bit before another update, winter has hit with a vengance and it is beyond COOOOOOLD here. I need to drop some plastic to wall off part of the building so maybe I can keep a little heat in an area.

Exhaust is now done on both sides other than the tail pipes and I am moving on to some rust repair on the cab if I can keep my feet warm enough.

Turned down tips reduce the sound a lot. A number of the lots we use for autocross have noise restrictions so they take sound readings. Adding turned down tips is a tried and true way to lower the sound level on a too loud exhaust.

Since I have SS cherry bombs, I exit out the back and did turn downs. I have not run the engine in the chassis, only on the engine dyno. Noise level TBD

That is one fine looking chassis!


I guess it depends on your engine, but based on my experience with cherry bombs, let alone turndowns, that is going to be just a bit loud.
My last 69 camaro with a healthy 350 and a full dual system with cherry bombs was loud enough that I decided not to use cherry bombs on my current build. I leave for work early in the AM and that thing was loud from the time it fired up. I may use em on the next build but I will put them on with clamps so I can get them off if they are more loud than cool. Turn downs kick up enough dust and dirt that I avoid them as well, it is amazing the amount of small gravel that a set of turn downs can kick up. I prefer to go straight out the back or angled down at the sides but away from the ground.

We will have to see if it is too loud. I had a set on a 74 F100 with a 360. It was not too loud but sounded good if you got on it. The engine on Willard is a clone for the GMPP 383HT which is a lower reving high torque engine. It is not a screamer. The cherry bombs, which are the longest available in ss, are not welded in, however, I did look to see if I could find a non offset inlet to outlet muffler in 304SS without success. The tips are angled back at about 135 degrees.

Agreed you will not know until you fire it. Different engines have different sounds. I had a nova SS with a 400 small block and thrush straght though mufflers, sounded great. Swapped to a 396 big block and it could be heard down the street with the same mufflers. Changed them out after enough neighbors complained.

Your tips look clamped on so you can always turn them away from the ground as needed. I am planning on a rear roll pan so I will most likely have the exhaust tips coming out under it or notched into it.

Cherry Bomb

I First had a Cherry Bomb on my 58 F250 292 Y BLOCK 4.8L and it was NOT too Loud at all, actually sounded pretty Good, I changed it to a FLOWMASTER 40 Series only cause I liked the sound Better. FYI....
