Does anyone have any info on this exhaust? I like the idea and was thinking it could work well with my car. I just don't want to put the money into something that might be garbage.

It's garbage.

A 4 into 1 header will be much better.

This is a much better subject as it attaches to a 4 into 1 style header. I don't know what kind of baffle is in there if at all but I personally really like this style of exhaust and would have used that exact same one if it didn't cause me to loose the inch or two that it does. On a street car though you should have no problems.

Alright cool. That's what I'll probably get.

I've got a set of these. Haven't installed them yet. Think they would work good on a stock body, baja, etc. Hopt to install these on a kit car in the next week or so, if they don't fit they're for sale.
Go to waltstoys.com and you can see the car. walt 973, Atlanta area

It would probably work great if you are the type of person who does not adjust their valves.

From the looks of the collector flange the mufflers should be below the valve covers. It would be tight, but you should be able to access the valves. But the ground clearance would be pretty marginal.

I had the dual set-up a few years ago, It broke right at the three bolt flange....weight of the mufflers. They were on for two years and were jet-hot coated and did not rust thru, just cracked at the flange from vibration and weight of the mufflers. In fact, I had lighter weight alluminum Super-Trapp mufflers on it at the time and still cracked in half.

I have a set on my trike; easy mount with a good sound. It has been on my trike for years now and still looks and sounds good. My 74 super has a brand name exhaust and doesn't sound near as well. Cool

When my 78 vert gets roadworthy it will have this system. I'm happy with it

I have a set of pipes like the ones in the first pic. They arent my style, but they came with my car, and will stay on for a while. It looked like the exhaust sat a little higher than the stock one, because the bumper mounts were cut up to fit the exhaust. They do sound great though.

Use exhaust straps or they will get hot, bend, drag, and fall off.
This is my second set
