Re: Exhaust advice
Nick, I'll take a shot
My personal opinion is it won't sound like the 350. If you listen to an old school camaro vs the new camaro the LS has a different sound. It's kind of like a big block has a different sound than a small block running through the same exhaust. In addition, mufflers, pipe configuration (i.e. x pipe vs no x), headers vs manifolds, etc all impact the sound that comes out the exhaust tip on a given engine.
I have an L99 with a maggie (plus planning other mods) that I'm putting in my '67 but haven't gotten near the point of hearing it run. I'm running the hooker blackheart headers and am planning on running the complete hooker blackheart 3" exhaust on it so it will breathe. It will more than likely have a unique sound and if I wan't to change it up I'll look at different mufflers.
Is your current exhaust 2 1/2" or ?, mandrel bent or not, what type of mufflers? Are you planning on leaving the L99 completely stock (i.e. cam swap, headers, etc)?
By the way the work you've done on the car is pretty impressive.
