    Welcome from Kansas! Split the manifold and run the exhaust out some lake pipes! Nothing sounds better than a split 6!

    Thanks for the info,The exhaust on the car had some holes and a clogged muffler(mouse nest maybe),Any way Im running the stock manifold for now to the 1 3/4 pipe then went to a 2 1/4 exiting at a 45 in front of the driver side rear tire.No muffler.Sounds mean .I do plan on the set up you mentioned,moneys tight so maybe in a year or to.Do you have any info if the stock wheel can run radials?
