It’s been a long while.
I still am working on a project that has been in my garage for 30 plus years.
Anyway I decided to get the Elky on the road by November, big part was getting a dual exhaust system on a 350 with headers. I got some pricing in the vicinity of 800$ . Yikes. Well with a modified crossmember an a little imagination and three day of work this is what I came up with.

Look into a header collector-back to tailpipe setup by Pypes. These kits include header flanges with x- or h-crossover, mufflers, tailpipes, clamps, and hangers. Summit carries them for $500-600. In order to clear the dual exhaust, you'll need a double hump transmission cross member. There are numerous threads on this site regarding suggested options from homemade to aftermarket. I chose to get the G-force look alike from Summit.

Finished hanging a 2.5” pipe header back with two thrush mufflers. It sounds fantastic! Now I need to tune my new rochester spread bore card with vacuum secondary’s. More on that later.
Posting multiple pics is still eluding me and why is it postings two of the same pic.🤷🏼‍♂️
