Hans' '67 Nova
Edwin's '65 Chevelle
Drew's '69 Chevelle
Eric has added earlier bumpers to his '73 Nova, which gives the car a more classic look. He asked us to build a new exhaust for him, using Flowmaster Super 44 mufflers. These mufflers have a lower tone than the standard 40-series Flowmasters, and sound great behind any V8.

Foster asked us to fabricate a custom mandrel-bent dual exhaust
for his very nice silver Chevelle, which features fuel-injected LS-2
power. We used 3.5" to 2.5" header extensions/transitions to connect
the exhaust to his header collectors, then custom-bent the muffler
extensions and custom H-pipe to tuck the pipes up as close as possible
to the body. We used Magnaflow mufflers, and stainless steel band
clamps to attach the tailpipe extensions to the mufflers.
Since we needed to add custom bends to wrap the tailpipes around the
aftermarket fuel tank, we used 2 sections for the tailpipes, to allow
them to be removed more easily. We welded stainless steel flanges at
the tailpipe joint.
Since Foster wanted a subdued look for the tailpipes, we
custom-mandrel-bent the pipes to follow the contour of the
framerails and exited them under the rear bumper instead of using tips.
Greg, a member of the Highlands Ranch Hot Rodders, owns this
great-looking ’66 Chevelle. He chose to use Magnaflow mufflers on his
new 2.5" aluminized Hanksville exhaust, along with classic stainless
Greg wanted a nice mellow "rumbly" sound while cruising, but he also
wanted to open the exhaust up. So, we installed electric exhaust
cut-outs, which open up the exhaust with a push of a button under the
dash. We added exhaust extensions before the mufflers, to help remove
the uncorked exhaust fumes from beneath the car. These extensions
cannot be seen from outside the car, but the cut-outs can definitely be
heard when Greg pushes the button!
Steve’s ’69 Nova already had a nice mandrel-bent exhaust that was
originally purchased as a kit, but the tailpipes were routed too close
to the fuel lines and he didn’t like the sound. He asked us to install
Flowmaster 50-series Delta Flow mufflers to help quiet the sound, and
to remake the tailpipes.
We custom-mandrel-bent the new tailpipes with extra bends to better
clear the fuel lines, and moved the stainless steel tips to provide a
cleaner appearance. After installing the Flowmaster mufflers, we added
an H-pipe to the exhaust.
Big-cubic-inch engines are as popular as ever. Just look at Scott’s
Chevelle - with a poked-and-stroked 454, it sounded great when he
brought it to the shop. However, he wanted a nicer sound, mandrel-bent
tubes, and better fitment around his 4-link suspension, so he asked us
to fabricate a custom exhaust. He chose Flowmaster 40-series Delta Flow
mufflers for a more muscular sound, and asked us to make a custom
X-pipe and custom-fitted tailpipes. To give the exhaust more ground
clearance, we added extra bends in front of the mufflers. This allows
the mufflers to tuck up inside the factory floor recesses.
Scott is a member of the Highlands Ranch Hot Rodders, a club that we
are happy to sponsor. Scott’s new exhaust fits great, clears his
high-performance suspension, and sounds very mean!
Dave’s Gasser-Style Chevy II
Dave brought his traditional gasser-styled Chevy II for swing-out
door bars and a custom exhaust. First, we fixed some fitment issues he
was experiencing with his fenderwell headers. Then, we added exhaust
pipes to connect the headers to Magnapacks, ending in turnouts. We then
added cutouts just behind the headers, allowing Dave to uncork the
exhaust, bypassing the mufflers, when he goes to the races.
