I debated a lot on the exhaust, if I should go to my favorite shop or just do it myself. I ended up buying a Pypes system from Summit and just fabricating my own down pipes off the shorty style headers.
It's been a while since I posted. Still making progress. Set the timing and got it running, cranked right up. Engine and exhaust sound good! It's been at the paint shop for a couple of months. I guess they are backed up a bit. Got some pics though, should have some paint on it in a few days.
