65 Impala Exhaust System Question
I have a 65 Impala 2 door hard top with a numbers matching 396. I had the motor completely rebuilt, a couple notches above stock, standard bore, pistons etc. - little hotter cam with a 3 angle valve job to the heads. The mechanic that built the motor said it will make around 375 + horse power. I'm getting ready to set the body back on the frame in the next week or two. I'd like to install the exhaust myself at my shop vs. having it flat bedded to an exhaust shop. I have the factory exhaust manifolds on the car - no headers. I'd like to have a full 2.5" exhaust system from front to rear that exits under the rear bumper as the stock system did. As far as sound goes, I'd like to have a little rumble - nothing too loud. My 2005 Silverado has a cat back gibson exhaust on it - slight rumble at idle and sounds healthy under acceleration. Is there a bolt on system out there from front to rear? Is there a system that anyone has actually used that can give me their opinion on? I'd appreciate any advice! Thanks!
