I am just wanting a good sounding exhaust system that is stock in appearance but with headers, x-pipe going into a crossflow or transverse muffler and exiting in stock location(67-8) on a BBC. No true duals.. It can be either 2.5"in / 2.5"out or 3"in / 2.5"out. So tell me what you have or what you have heard? I am leaning towards one muffler but I havent heard it in person yet. If you happen to have sound bites load them up as well. Thanks. Smiley

If you choose "other" then could you tell me what the other would be..?.. 

So no one else is running a crossflow muffler on their car?  Small blocks are welcomed as well!!

I'm the one who entered 'Other'. My system was made in the late 80's and is SS and uses a cross flow muffler with stock sizes and exits.
I don't know vendor though.   Sad  The sound is nice actually with a comfortable deep tone to it and not loud.

I chose 'other' as well, 302 with stock type system I bought from someone on Team Camaro 12 years ago. I have no idea who made it, but sounds like a typical system thru a crossflow muffler. Has a nice turbo muffler sound without any deep tone at all. Can actually hear the heater blower motor running when the engine is running but has a nice sound outside the car. Not obnoxious at all.

This very timely since I was just at a muffler shop today asking the owner I know well, what type of mufflers/system he thought from his experience would sound good on my car, which I plan to change soon.
I will be following this thread and poll very closely - great Thanks.. - Randy

I have a 1969 ss396 & a 1968 z/28. Both are running OEM GM mufflers that I've purchased through the years. I'm a little bias but nothing I've heard sound better. Some of the after market mufflers sound tinny & crackly. Others are just cop callers....Joe

I just was checking out this post, and saw you added SBC also.  I am running the PYPES Cross-flow 2 1/2 in. system and love love it.  I did purchase the original style Hangers for in front of the axle, separately, just didn't like the "generic" hanger they supplied.  1 issue I had, you need to draw the lower inlet pipe in on the Pass. side or it will hit on the Leaf spring.  I cut 1 in. off and "drawed" it in with a rachet tie-strap.  Here's a couple pics.;
