69 Z28 Exhaust
« on: August 27, 2016, 06:30:04 PM »
According to Gardner and late Z (09D) would have the resonators and transverse muffler.
Waldron exhaust claims that Z28s did not get the resonators. 
I've seen a magazine image of a ZL1 test car with resonators and transverse muffler so i don't think "hi-perf" cars were "resonator exempt"

can anyone answer with certainty?

Thanks

Aaron

Absolutely 100% Yes.  The GM service technical bulletin dated April 15, 1969 tells all about it.

Search this forum for Resonator's on Z/28's.  There's at least three good reads on this, and copies of the bulletin!

too bad gardner doesn't make an Empty resonator shell - just so it looks correct but doesn't cork the exhaust down even more :(

It hasn't been that long ago, that I saw that D&R Classic had a repop of the resonator.  I think it was aluminized and how correct, I don't know.  I guess my slow to get something done ass should check on them too!
