Would putting shorty headers and dual exhaust on my 76' 350 nova make it sound a lot louder to the point where it would be hard to have a convo in my car while on the freeway? My dad keeps telling me that its going to be too loud with headers on, is he just trying to scare me or is it true? Right now my car isnt "very" loud, I mean you can hear it coming but it has a nice "bom bom bom" sound, but I want headers so it will perform better.

a little louder, but smoother sound and better gas mileage too!
Hedman are good ones...

Its not the headers that make noise, its the mufflers or lack of that follow them. Headers are notorious for leaking and require constant maintenance, compared to cast iron manifolds. Although if you re-jet your fuel system to match you may gain a small increase in gas mileage to go with some extra horse power.

stock 350 4 bbl

dual exhaust is sufficient

no need for headers on a stock motor

change your differential to a 3.73

now thats better than headers
