They look neat but can be noisy and a pain

Guess you have already checked to see if they are legal in your area

Just my two cents

I've thought about side pipes for my '67. But am having 2nd thoughts. I think they will be to loud. I want a REALLY GOOD rumble, but I want to be able to hear the radio as well.

A few things -

1. choice of mufflers is limits due to where they need to be located

2. Pain - not alot of places for mounting points. You can attach to the lower edge of the pinch weld but you'll have to support the other end of that pipe in at the driveline tunnel to keep them from turning (a problem early Shelbys had )

3. There must be kits (?) but we hand built the system I did from factory details (65 Shelby)
Would guess guys like Jim Cowles either have or will make up a system

Good luck with the project

Slightly noisy,hard to find hanging points,look better on a brand"X" car(IMHO),70's styling,easier to go w/dual set-up.
Just my .02

I am building my exhaust system for side exit. I have an X pipe and a T5 tranny.
I am using those spiral scoops inside the tube glass pacs, backwards. The e brake
hardware is being a pain in the butt. I wish I had about six more inches (get your
mind out of the gutter) before they have to turn to the outside. I think side
exit is worth the hassle and grief. Screw the radio.
