    I just purchased a 1978 Impala. I want to put headers and flowmasters on it to make it sound better. Can you guys give me some advice on which headers and mufflers i should go with?

    1978 Impala Exhaust Empty headers and Mufflers

    Your bigger problem will be insufficient clearance under the transmission cross member for the left side downpipe. I believe that headers generally are more trouble than they are worth, and an exhaust system off a 96 Impala SS or Caprice would be more trouble free. As for mufflers, I personally like the Magnaflow stainless straight through mufflers.
