I have the factory exhaust. I have the 5.0 v8 TBI.

I want a dual flowmaster exhaust. With an H pipe.


Thanks.

P.s. IS there a site for 80-89 Caprice performance parts or body Parts?

Screw the H pipe, go with an X pipe if you want a cross over. Any exhaust shop can make a decent system and mufflers are dirt cheap on ebay.

Yeah, without even messing with ebay it's not that expensive. My local guy will replace stock exhaust with a custom dual setup for $300.

Is that price with or without mufflers? I had the same price quote from a local shop, but when I started asking questions I found out. Price was quoted without mufflers, and they will not do it without cats, and on top of that, they will only either reuse the old cat, or use a brand new one, despite the car being emissions exempt. Plus the dual exhaust can't be routed without modifying or replacing the crossmember.

That price was new cats and included mufflers. They weren't FM ones rather plain ol' glass packs.

Well, this is a guy that I know semi-well. I send him a lot of referrals and he scratches my back. Yup, I'm very close to Oregon. I'm about halfway between Perrysburg and Woodville if you know where that is. In fact, someone just recently put up a '92+ 9C1 for sale less than a mile from my house for $1500. The body is rough from what I can tell. I need to stop and take a look-sie!
