BTW,

I will have the alternator plug with 16" of wire pigtails available soon. Properly molded with the plastic plug, rubber seal, trimmed eyelets and striped wire.

Difference between this old school unit and new.
Old school uses bearing center.
New style used brass as bearing. Not as smooth for sure after years of use.

Jeff, what diameter pipes are you using, and what size is the muffler? ....and how loud/quiet is the exhaust?

Cheers,
Glen

Jeff,

Are those 2" pipes? Hard to tell in the photo. I am running 2 1/2" on mine with a Dynoflow, straight through muffler, and mine has a nice little rumble to it. Interested in hearing what o\you are running.

Nice glovebox.

Jim

Yup itty bitty 2", original style Belanger type headers using original type mufflers.

I went for originality versus extra 5 ponies on larger pipes...

I can say in the car less noise than my old CCX, however everyone has said that under acceleration its the loudest car they have heard.

Webers and their flow are a contributor to sonic boom
