    It's my wife's car and her nickname is Checkers - given to her by a racing buddy of ours. I'll pass on your comments about her car for you...;) We were going to the races separately before we met and we started dating in HS. After I graduated in 1972, I was pitting for her older brother, who ran a '68 Camaro at our local dirt track.

    My car is a '64 GTO convertible...

    Anyone have a transverse muffler with an aftermarket rear suspension (torque arm or 4 link)?

    Years ago I had dual turbo mufflers and never liked how they hung. One was always lower than the other. Duals are not for me.

    My Walker Transverse.

    So I bought one of each system. This weekend I will put on the Thrush transverse system I got and see how it looks and sounds.

    You can't put the Catalytic Converters that far back by the back seat. They need the highest heat section to light off and work
    They need to be like right after the headers. Mine are Hi flow and Venom 250 mufflers with pypes tailpipes. Nothing really hangs down. I cut, fitted and welded the whole thing. Much more time and care than any shop would've done for me.

    I'm considering the Thrush Turbo transverse dual in dual out with internal H-Pipe too. When you get it in could you post an audio so we can hear it?

    I have looked high and low for specs related to where cats can be placed in the system but found nothing. Legally I can dump the cats due to the age of my 79 but they do have value for the environment.

    It's a bit hard to see in the cat hanging down in the shadow but I never have liked this look.
