After gettin my car running with the rebuilt 318 last summer, i didn't want to put the exhaust on. The 40 series flowmastes sound awesome, but open headers sounded great! nothing like your neighbors 3/4 of a mile away hearing you start your car up inside the garage.
but $300 is a little expensive at the moment, but tax return isn't too far away...
Back in the early 60's, we used to use gas tank filler tubes as cut outs. You just took the gas caps off and presto....open exhaust.
Remote cutouts operated with choke cables inside the car, were available from Hollywood Sam and JC Whitney. They did leak a bit though. Bet you can still find them.
Hello There, I'm interested in the '68 barracuda, have a few questions like is it a notchbach or fastback? What drive train did it come with original and what are you asking for it and where are you located? Do you have any pics of it please send to email@example.com Thanks Les.
I installed a set of manual ones right after the collector. Its a bit of a pain to reach under and spin off the wing nuts, so I put a spot of weld on the head of each of the bolts so they stay put when attaching and re-attaching the wing nuts making it a little more convenient. Im not sure if there is any more power running the open exhaust though, but the sound of a built 340 with wide open exhaust would even put a twinkle in the pope's eye.
a lot of my bee friends have them.. whne i do my twin tubro fairlane..i'm gonna do the electric cutout...bc i'm the only one who can stand cars that loud around here... so the $300 will be worth every penny..then havin to unbolt and rebolt every other day..i'm uts gonna do a single with a si.do muffler so i don't have to buy 2 cutouts ;-)..man that turbo'd 5.0 is gonna be schweet!!!
