    Dual exhaust pre-made

    Post  terry cronk on Fri Jun 16, 2017 9:45 am

    There was someone on here awhile back that said they saw a dual exhaust from an earlier Chevelle that fit our B-bodies.

    I would like to know which set of 2.5 will work for my 79 and future dual exhaust. I have the aftermarket cross member.

    The muffler guy I go to can make it, but the bends are not mandrel. I have a 383 being installed.

    Appreciate any info.

    64-67 A body kits. I have one from Pypes I picked up cheap (scratch and dent) that I'm working on fitting. The tailpipes on this kit aren't a perfect match, but they look like they'll fit ok with a little coaxing.

    Here's the article I got the idea from:

    I think this is the pipes that are mentioned. I already have a set of 40 mufflers. All this is 2.5".

    Years ago Super Chevy Mag did a Caprice build. They used a kit for a 70-72(?) Monte Carlo.
    IIRC, everything was a direct fit but they had to fab the left rear hanger.
