On the street? How well?
12.5:1 427 bbc with all the speed parts of that era ,with a M22 4spd and verti gate and a 12 bolt with 4.56 gears .i ran it a couple times at fremont drag strip in northern calif and it went 11.90 .on the street with the M22 and those 56's it came out of the hole very hard . as street racing is not allowed on nasty Z i'll just say it ran very on the street
Sounds like it would.
My 81 had a 2.5 inch true dual setup with flowmaster delta flows. Engine was a 383 stroker. it was kinda loud till i put in the X-pipe. What a difference. Idle was still kinda loud but my exhaust exited by the axle under the car so i am sure it was sound bouncing too. Driving was actually too quiet to me. Like really silent. I wonder what the car would have sounded like with the same exhaust and tailpipes out the back like stock.
I think Im gonna try and raise the floor behind the drivers seat so I can fit a full 20 inch muffler underneath instead of a 14
That's what I did--there was a big difference going from the smaller Dynomax to the longer ones (much quieter), and supposedly flows about the same. As long as no one sits in the back seat (or if they do, they have very small feet), it is a good way to go.
But he also bought those super cheap from me and installed them in our parking lot...
So I ordered 2 dynomax aka walker hemi super turbos. The large 20inch case
I took some reading with my hand held spl meter 3 feet from the end of the pipe
Olds 455 Idle. 3000 rpm
Header 117db. 120 db
Pipes no muffler 112db. 115db
Flowmaster 40. 100db. 106db
Hemi super turbo. 97db. 100 db
Just curious how you like them...Are you happy with the way they sound, etc.?
I think My goals are a little un realistic. I drive a 01 civic and id like it a little louder than that.so with that being said, they are a little louder then I was hoping for. Right now they are clamped on to my old H pipe exhause with dumps.
I think with new x pipe exhaust and a pair of vibrant performance resonators at the rear bumper I will be happy with the quietness of the exhaust
And then with the flick of a switch and the electric cutouts open and I'll have the best of both worlds
