Anyone ever use the Jegs dual exhaust kit? http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS/555/30552/10002/-1?parentProductId=751868
Im looking at it only cause I just want something cheap to throw on my '73 for now just to get it on the road. And Im wondering how the fit of the pipes are etc.

"May require cutting and welding in some circumstances due to different ride height and suspension setups."

You can bet your @$$ it's going to.... Haven't seen a "bolt-on" setup for these cars that doesn't.

Exactly the reason why I haven't bought a "bolt-on" exhaust set-up for my 76. I don't want to cut & re-bend, etc. I'm just going to a local shop that quoted me $174 from headers to bumper for dual 2 1/2" pipes & I bring my own mufflers. My problem is deciding on tips that look good on these cars. I could go side exit right before the rear wheels for $50 cheaper but I don't want to deal with the constant resonance on a daily driver even if it does look better.

WOW $174 is cheap, I keep getting quoted around $275+ from headers to rear with no tips or mufflers.

Yeah, I got quotes from $250 and up if I brought my own mufflers, and thats just the regular muffler shop crush bent pipe, the Jegs kit is mandrel bent. Im not too worried about having to modify the Jegs kit alittle if I have to, I have a welder etc so thats no big deal. I plan on adding an x pipe to it anyways.

Dan that sounds about the same as my quote if you figure 3" is gonna cost more than 2 1/2". I'm glad we live in the cheaper part of the country, lol.

Anyone found a tip that looks right on these cars? I got some big A$$ tips just laying around (echo chambers?) but I'd rather find something a little less obnoxious for Brown Eye. The only thing I can imagine is either chrome turn-downs at the rear corners or thin rectangular tips tucked just under the bumper.
