When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Great idea! Did you think of that yourself?

Those headers look like a good quality set, great idea on the baffles.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Thanks for the great idea Tripper! And getting a set of Patriot lake headers "on the cheap" is a score!

A friend of mine did that on his Model A with a BBC. After a bit he made a quieter exhaust because it was just too loud. I'm hoping yours works out better!

I used baffles on this motor before & learned to 'tune' them. Add a lil fiberglass, block off the end of the inner tube, add steel wool etc! Here in Texas... as long as you have any type of baffle you're good to go! Never been stopped by the Boys in Blue yet but there's always a 1st time! Also helps to know the top cop in the area!
