Got any pics of your car? I wanna see this beast, ok?
Near Lakewood, WA?
I have a Thunder AVS 800 on my 68 Vette 427......after some tweaks, she hauls-ash.
My ElCo needs ext bad. Bucky's and Midas sat $500 minimum. Guess its time for a mail-order ext kit.
Flowmaster kit is $299 from Summit
Jeg's sells a kit w/Turbo Mufflers, $174
Both systems are mandrel-bent....
Just gotta decide....

Nice pic of your car!
Have known/done business with the shoe repair guy in Lakewood for 5 years now. Yesterday I took my ElCo on some errands, picked up some of the wife's shoes. Alex was giving my car more than a once-over. Turns out he's a gearhead! He's got 2-3 ElCos like yours and Chevelles and a Gen1 Camaro! I believe he said he has some floorboards out in his cars....
might need your skills......
