Does anyone have experience with side pipes on a 77 Vette? brand ect, or suggestions as what are the best ones more for looks than noise.

thank you, Have you used either of these yourself?, both are a bit out my price range at this particular time. if there are any other options that are ok but a bit more price friendly I would be interested. I know you get what you pay for and quality counts. I may just have to save my pennies, lol.

Yes I have installed both brands on many C3's and there are cheaper ones out there but as the old saying goes..."you get what you pay for"

Have you considered 1 5/8" long tubes to chambered exhaust out the back?
