    Default 1984 exhaust all done

    i just finished the final stage of my exhaust system (for now at least) by removing the cat and installing a test pipe.... so that along with the muffler eliminators has not only made the car sound AWESOME but has given it a whole buncha ooomph off the line

    thanks everyone for all the great advice....... now its time to start working on the truck

    I told you so. Once that cat is off you must have gained 15 hp.

    Funny! Today I was looking at an exhaust system from Corvette Central to accomplish this exact task.

    A "test pipe" is a stretch of exhaust tubing one installs in place of a catylitic converter to enable "testing" of the vehicle without the restriction inherant with cats.

    have a 79 w/350 truck engine ( 255hp) want to put straight duals instead of side pipes so I can listen to spouse and hear police, just a passing idea as parts like that for 79 look scarce.
