The English Dream - "What shade shall I paint the garden furniture, dear?"

The American Dream - "How exactly do you want the exhaust to sound on the Fury?"

Well, you must observe that it's a balancing act.

It's not a Plymouth Rage, it's not a Plymouth Aggravated.

It's kinda in the middle

Today, I broke open the newest box of stuff.

I made a wiggly pipe. It twists to avoid the torsion bar and lines up with the notch in the subframe.

Looks neat enough.

I slotted two straight lengths of pipe together towards the back of the car to see what it would sound like. Quite deep even just like that.

Built up the passenger side section that gets to where the muffler will be.

Will soon need to buy mufflers.

All fits up there pretty well though.

Now waiting on FedEx to deliver my mufflers.

Sounds pretty good, that an MSD distributor? I ask as my Impala's 348 is getting a Pro-Billet one as part of the rebuild. As well as a Comp Cams 'Mutha Thumper' roller cam. And forged pistons etc etc. Should sound as nice as the Fury although I am guessing that the workshop doing it won't be impressed by my old exhaust system bearing in mind it has been on the car for ages and the two Cherry Bombs are getting a bit loud. I should have asked them to order a set of headers. What mufflers have you ordered Phil?

It's an MSD clone by A Great Bunch Of Lads. Works okay though it's not going to last because the shaft is bent (previous engineering firm used it to stop the engine from going past the firewall when they put the engine in).
Bought a pair of Flowmaster copies, from Speedway. Twin chamber so they shouldn't be excessively loud- well, they'll be loud but not as loud as none at all fitted.

FedEx arrived this afternoon, so I donned my glad rags and got to work.

A couple mild steel Flowmaster clones, because cheap.

Spent an age lining it up, welding up fully (was only tacked before) and created a hanger for this side because it was only a single exhaust from new. There's space for it but the hardware wasn't fitted.



Nice deep note. Passenger side of just resting on the floor but it gave a reasonable idea of the sound.

Changed the oil because, well, it needed it.
