1973 Chevelle Laguna 355 SBC Sound

Post by switchbiker on Thu Jan 23, 2014 7:15 pm

Finally decided to go take a little video of my car, here is a sound clip. She's running a little rich but that will be fixed once the MSD Atomic EFI gets installed. Never did care much for the temperamental idle mixture on the Holley 4150's cheers

Sounds great. What are you running for exhaust?

Hedman Hustler Cerama-Coated 1 5/8 primary headers, X pipe and Pair of 2 1/2" Flowmaster 40's w/ turndowns. Once I do the major teardown to G-machine this car I'll be fabbing a tucked oval tube exhaust, all the bolt on stuff hangs too low to the ground, especially with the suspension dropped just a few inches.

Is that a fiberglass rear bumper, or did you section it down? I notice it follows the body lines a lot tighter than factory.

Once you go injection, you'll realize what a PITA it was constantly tuning the carb. Smile

My exhaust always drags when I hit a dip going too fast and my front end isn't even lowered down yet. Ive got to get some shorty headers and get my pipes tucked in their a bit better.

i dont want to here it lol..my side pipes are 4 inches from the ground....let's just say avoiding speed bumps is a good idea. happy bowtie Dips in the road at speed probably make a good spark show....

Stock bumper cut, sectioned and welded to the body.

Still you can't give it up for the look. Side pipes are awesome!

My original idea for my car was about the same as the look on my signature as far as the stance, but with fat tires in the back, old cobra style side pipes, black with purple ghost flames. Supercharged with a street scoop. I have a pencil drawing at home somewhere.

My car is pretty close now how I want it to look, but it will be more refined when finished. Major work with subtle visual changes.
