Correct Exhaust
« on: October 23, 2015, 02:20:18 PM »
I have been checking on the exhaust system for my 64.5 D Code. I talked to Dave at precision exhaust and they are not able to get the correct single or transverse mufflers right now but do have the OEM dual system with resonators. My question is if I go with the later OEM dual system will I get points deducted.

NPD has exhaust pieces and kits, as do others. Many muffler shops are notorious for selling you "their" system, even if they are out of stock.

The maximum points will be deducted except in modified classes.

That is so sad, nothing you can do I guess, and I guess my daughter's F code '64 1/2 is even worse?
I don't always downshift, but when I do it is near a Prius so they can hear me hurting the environment.

Depends on what your objective is - concourse, driver, mod, pleasure.

If someone wants or needs the system bad enough they can get them made.  That is where allot of reproduction parts come from - a need on an individual or small group. That's how the early dual exhaust got made - just one guy that was going to see it got made for him and a few others.

I was, of course, taking about Concours, the other classes I suspect any Midas system will work.  True enough Jeff, I guess that is how Scott got his excellent KR systems going back in the day.
