Exhaust recommendatstion.
« on: May 06, 2018, 04:36:36 PM »
Even though I adore my 66 GT50 with its 65 style side exhaust it is making me deaf

Can anyone suggest a replacement system?

My car is not concourse nor will it ever be a super duper show car in my ownership, so not looking for a Scott Fuller type of system

I don't however want to make alterations to install a new system

I am thinking about an Arvindode system at this point

Any comments, suggestions would be most welcome.

Why re invent the wheel? What is the problem with getting a couple of muffler's similar to the shape and size Ford used (I know you are in the UK) locally and having a local shop run it out the back with turn downs like the stock 66 GT350 exhaust. Since the Arvindode system will be expensive and will not look right ether what are your reasons for thinking about that choice?.

The Arvinode exhaust will also make you deaf.

Man I love that side exhaust. ........
If you think a typical 65 side exhaust system is loud you would not believe something I’m running....

If originally isn’t a worry.

Could you place a couple of Supertrap discs in the existing exhaust system so you could retain the “look” yet tone it down a bit? Not sure if they make any that would fit.

The Performance would be the same.

Agreed its fast cheap easy and can be adjusted to your liking adding discs or removing disks. Clamp on to boot. that's the ticket! :D

Trouble with Supertraps is the look might make viewers thing that you are running a replica '65, if you care.

Yikes, Ton of Replies, Thanks,

Bob, not afraid of that method. Sounds easier shipping wise as well

Scott, Just to clarify, I LOVE your systems and wasn't dissing them, Just not for me at this time with my driver quality car

As far as the Avrindode, I figured with rear exit rather than side it may be easier on the ears but good to know they are deafening as well.

Another issue I should have mentioned is the pesky grunting noise the car seems to make I have mentioned before, I am nearly positive its the exhaust so eliminating the whole current system may be the answer to that problem.

I am going to speak to a fairly local exhaust place who are known for very nice work and see what they say as well.

Thanks folks, Peter

If you're running the original style "cherry bomb" glasspacks with 2-inch pipes, you can change them out for some Flowmasters or Magnaflows  with 2-1/2 inch pipes for a deeper, more authoritative sound.

Buy a set of ear plugs. Cuts noise by about 30 decibels of sound depending on the brand. My $1.00 solution for you to keep the glorious exhaust that you already have. Screw the neighbors!

run the pipes out the back, and install electric cutouts to the side pipes. much more reliable now the in the past. both sounds at the flip of the switch. phred

My choice would be pipes out the back and electric cutouts for full open exhaust . Fun to scare the you know what out of the car next to you when you go from one to another at a stop light as you put your foot to the floor..
