    and it's loud as fuck...... :ph34r:


    6-3-2 Hooker Header Super Competition header....and twice pipes back (duel pipes mandrel bent).... 2" per pipes, with two mini-cheery bombs on each pipe. 4 bombs :D 108db's at the least.....going to be fun not to get pulled over now. (2" pipes x 2 = 6.38"-ish exhaust.... if my math is right.)

    revs stupid fast....breaths better than an opera singer in a room of fresh oxygen. Still got a few kinks to work out...but it's the sickest exhaust for the N/A Z ever made.

    huh? I'm confused...where's the 3.14 coming from?


    If you have 2 pipes, and each pipe is 2" in diameter, the overall diameter of your exhaust is 4"...

    I dunno, I suck at math.

    I'll be running straights in the Vega too. Not dual, but still - Clayton and I have cars old enough to not be Emissions tested.

    Straight pipes doesn't immediately equal polluting. Proper tune will make it burn clean as well.

    Are you guys on crack - 2, 2"dia pipes gives you 6.28 sq in. Which equals a 2.82"dia pipe. Do you seriously not know how to add up fucking circles? My fuck.

    the primaries from the head to the two collectors are 1.525", and the collectors are 2.5", then reduced down to 2" to the long pipes.

    sorry, my math sucked....I used 2" instead of 1" for the radius...

    Under the hood of that Z looks like a Vietname era battleship engine room.

    I LOVE IT. I have a gauge to add to that too (Oil pressure gauge). It's really old.
