    Definitely talk to Langdon. He doesn't just sell parts-he is a long time 6 cylinder (retired) GM engineer- he's forgotten more than most ever knew about Chevy in-line 6s.. The stuff he offers is in a class of it's own.
     
  3. for the sound get something in cast iron, my opinion
    used to split my own in the 60,s

    Keep an eye opened for one of these Chevy Corvette six knockoff split manifolds. I found 2 at a Swap Meet and bought and used both. 2 1/4 tubing with a "X" pipe and 28" Glass packs. Great sounds at a reasonable price.
    Good performance too.

    You found two of them at the same swap meet? You're a lucky boy! The one I've got is the only one I've ever seen in the flesh.
