New correct-ish exhaust
« on: January 29, 2024, 05:37:19 AM »
So Jim over at .Net steered me towards Waldron exhaust. He sent them his original so they had a template. 68 Chevy II is the same as 67-8 Camaro. 10 weeks later itís on, but I need some clarification about the muffler. Originally was the outlet in the middle or top of the muffler? The right hangs low, so Iím certain the outlet should be in the middle. I used all the correct clamps and it took Enrique just over 1 hour. Plus the support brace is now back on afterÖ.weíll it was in the trunk when I got the car. The replacement exhaust pipe sat too low so the support couldnít be installed. Any pictures or help is appreciated. The AIM and parts book are generic.

Iíll give them a jingle and see what they have to say. I was adamant no air tools on installation and Enrique send electric and didnít hammer anything on.

Thanks Hers...is this muffler the original? If so, can you upload some pictures of the hangars on both sides?

Exhaust could be original. Weíve had the car since 2006 and havenít done anything to it. Hope these pictures are helpful. If not, I can do more.

Canít seem to post more than one picture at a time. Like I said on .net, I think we need a new exhaust system. What muffler did you go with?

More pictures always help. If you need new, Waldrons is the only company making the correct head pipe. Iím waiting to hear from them about the muffler outlet. The over the axle pipe and tailpipe fit quite well.
