New pipes

7 posts in this topic

Finally got a new set of stainless pipes and mufflers last week (along side the two old tailpipes in this pic)

The correct chrome tips came on Monday. Replaces the "turkey-gun" ones that were on the old busted pipes.

This car was hobbled together before I bought it. Four exhaust hangers three completely different styles. Of course I bought all new hangers that match.

The Avanti uses the "X" frame from the Studebaker Lark convertible to give the fiberglass car more rigidity. The added bonus is the X frame in the middle that the exhaust has to slide in and out of twice on each side. It makes this exhaust a difficult one

Pretty small dia pipes, no? Are those 2" tails,... or am I just used to looking at the 3" pipes I have for my B-59? The tips dress them up nicely.

I have to fabricate everything under there due to suspension/chassis changes, tho they'll end right before the rear axle this time, so I am jealous at anyone (which would be everyone) else who can buy a ready-made system.

Cool, how do they sound compared to the old ones?

Wow!

I'm very glad to see the Avanti getting some attention, that car seems like an old friend to me.
