Headers, x pipes and Magnaflows(oh my?)

Just a stupid video I did so I could hear what the things were going to sound like. These are those round mufflers and stainless. 2 1/2 exhaust, x pipe. I installed the mufflers temporarily because I wasn't done with the exhaust system.

electric fuel pump? loud noise before start,sounds like an oilless air compressor.
otherwise ,it's hard getting a good sound bite from a video. I KNOW MINE sound pretty bad mostly. Wind noise, sound wavelenght, camera quality ,ect

It was a long way from stock. It died and went where ever engines go when they die.

@Nailbender, I couldn't sleep and I occasionally find you tube just disappearing videos on me so I re-uploaded it. Carb was a little rich going wide open standing still.



These mufflers are straight through, 2 1/2" centered in and out pipe, perforated core so they are a bit loud.

I think we have the same Magnaflow system but I wasn't able to use the x-pipe due to the center brace for the convertible. Ended up having the shop fabricate straight pipes instead.

I think it sounds great, blowing the dust around after you get on it is even better!
