Q - Exhaust System Upgrade

Hey ya'll Im a first timer to your site and I am looking for Info. on how to install a snorkel exhaust system on my 94' Jeep Renagade It already has a Cold Air Intake(The Weapon) and Rihno lined floor boreds with drain holes. Can Anybody point me in the right direction?

 

 

A - This is not something Waldron's manufactures or sells, but here are a couple of suggestions.

We have seen one Jeep owner fabricate a tailpipe extension to move the tailpipe outlet up the rear of the vehicle to the height he needed. He picked up approximately 3' of fording depth by moving the tailpie tip up to the top of the tail lamp. His was designed to be removeable so he could have a normal tailpipe exit for on-road driving.

You could also utilize a vertical stack exhaust to get the outlet up near the top of the cab. You will need to fabricate a new exhaust pipe to get outboard of the frame rails, them turn vertically up next to the cab. Fabricate brackets to securely attach the vertical section to the cab. You might find that a commercially-available sidepipe will work for the vertical stack section. Make sure that precipitation can't enter the top of the tip; use a spring-loaded cap or an outlet that points to the rear of the vehicle. USE A HEAT SHIELD ON EXPOSED PIPE FOR FIRE SAFETY AND TO PROTECT PASSENGERS, BYSTANDERS AND PEDESTRIANS from the exhaust system's heat.

We have seen no commercially-available kits for this kind of conversion; most off-road modifications are limited to the intake side, not the exhaust.

Good luck and happy trailing!

 


Q - 69 Mustang Dual Exhaust

I'm restoring a 69 mustang with dual exhaust (351W engine). When installing the h-pipe onto the stock manifolds (with donut gaskets sandwiched between), I find the flared ends of the h-pipe touch the manifold, and the edges of the h-pipe mounting flange (the piece with 2 holes for the studs) also bottoms out against the manifold when tightening the attaching bolts. I have not installed an exhaust system in 25 years, but I seem to remember neither condition should occur, since it's likely to affect the manifold-to-gasket or gasket- to-h-pipe seal. I have not attempted to start the car and check for leaks.

The h-pipe and gaskets are new and I believe they are correct for the application. It is possible that I have distorted the h-pipe flanges as I have attempted to install it 2 times, but I can't see any obvious bending or stretching.

The donut gaskets slide onto the ends of the h-pipe so that there is only very small (<1/16 inch) section of the h-pipe visible with the gasket installed.

I believe a thicker donut gasket would solve the contact problems, but I'd like your opinions and/or where I can find larger gaskets.

Thanks for you time,
Dan

A - Are you using the Cobra Jet donuts? They are about 1/4 inch thicker than the standard donut and should prevent the problem you describe. If you are already using these donuts (they are 3/4" thick instead of the standard 1/2" 289/302/351C donut), there must be something wrong with the flares on your H pipe.

Here is one site that sells the CJ donuts:

Please let us know if this was any help.
Good Luck!

 

Re: 69 Mustang Dual Exhaust

Joe; Thanks for your reply.

Measured last night and confirmed that the gaskets I currently have are 0.6 inch thick. Suspect the 0.75 inch thick gaskets will be enough to fix the problem as you suggested.

Also did some snooping around on the internet and confirmed that Fel Pro has 2 gasket sizes for the 351W - one for the 302/351W and one for the 351W/390/428. I apparently have the smaller one.

This morning, I found the thicker Fel Pro gaskets locally for $1.29 each at Oreillys.

Thanks again
Dan

 


 

Q - 64 Lincoln Continental Exhaust

I am planning to probably replace the entire dual exhaust system from the headers back on my '64 Lincoln Continental with stock specification parts. Do you supply the right and left hand resonators with crossover tube (which are in FRONT of the mufflers on my car)?
Please help, I'm feeling somewhat exhausted! (sorry, couldn't resist...you must get that bad joke all the time)
Sincerely,
Pete Titanium

PS: My 15 year old son is after me to put in those butterfly valve bypass manifolds for drag racing! (I can hear myself now..."Poppa said, son, you're gonna drive me to drinkin' AND YOU WON'T BE driving that hot rod Lincoln...!")

 

A - 64 Lincoln Continental Exhaust
I've always liked that song! The young man's got a great idea - you would certainly turn some heads with open dumps on that Continental!

Actually, if you're seriously considering it, check out this product site:
http://www.quicktimeperformance.com/QTEC/index.php

We will respond shortly with the answer to the resonator question. Those crossovers are not easy to reproduce and we want to verify we have the proper patterns/dimensions for your vehicle.

 

Re: 64 Lincoln Continental Exhaust

Good news!
We have an NOS (aftermarket) car set of the front mufflers with crossover pipes. Total system price is $700 with all four mufflers. The exhaust pipes, rear mufflers and tail pipes are aluminized steel. The front mufflers and crossover pipes are NOS steel.

Shipping for the system will be $125 in the lower 48 states if we make the front exhaust pipes in one piece. We recommend two-piece front pipes; they are easier to install and shipping will be only $75.

Please call us to order: (269) 467-7185 or toll-free (800) 503-9428


 

Q - 69 torino
I just bought a 69 Ford Torino with a 2bbl 351 W. I would like to put a 4 bbl on the motor and replace the single exhaust with a dual. I would also like the sound to be a little more "throaty" than a stock setup. Can you help me??

 

 

A - Yes, we can help. We have a dual exhaust system that will fit.

And we can provide three options for the mufflers:
- first is "Old School" straight-thru glasspacks at $50/pair.
- second is a short-body "Turbo" style muffler that is also a straight-thru design but not as loud as the glasspacks.
- third is our "Impostor" muffler; a low-restriction muffler that looks like the factory muffler.

Turbo and Impostor prices are the same as the standard muffler prices listed in our online catalog.

The dual system for your Torino costs $390 with glasspacks or $460 with any of the other 3 muffler choices. Please call to place your order.

 


 

Q - 1948 Chevy StyleMaster - Hardware Included

I am ordering a complete Exhaust for my 1948 Chevy 'Stylemaster'. I want to thank you for your speedy reply when I called this afternoon (3/22/2007). I had check many other leads/Internet sites before running into your site. I'm so, so happy I found your site, you made finding an exhaust system for my 48 Chevy so easy .
I have one question. Does the complete system I've ordered include the HARDWARE, IE; Brackets, Clamps, the hardware it takes to install the pipes & Muffler(s)?

A - Thanks for the compliments, Mr. D!

No, our prices do not include hangers and clamps. E-mail or call us if you need them; we will check our Old Stock inventory for hangers. If we can get them, they are typically less than $20 each.

We recommend conventional clamps - we can provide those also.

 


 

Q - exhaust gas recirculator
I want to install a set of headers on a 1995 Dodge Ram 2500 truck with a v 10 engine. The stock exhaust manifold on the passenger side has a cast iron plate to which the egr plate is connected.

I need to weld an egr plate to the header and I am trying to find one. It would probably be a generic after market piece made by a header manufacturer. Do you know where I can obtain one.

Thank you.

A - We have reviewed product lines and catalogs from a number of companies but have been unable to find the mounting plate. We suggest you contact your header manufacturer for assistance with this part request.
Thanks!

 


 

Q - HEADERS
I'M A NEWBIE TO YOUR SITE, JUST FOUND IT.
I'M DOING AN ENGINE SWAP IN MY 1986 EL-CAMINO, PULLED OUT THE 305, PUT IN A 350. DIDN'T REALIZE THAT THE 350 BLOCK HAS THE DIPSTICK ON THE DRIVERS SIDE, WHICH WAS OPPOSITE OF THE 305, NOW EXHAUST MANIFOLDS DON'T WORK BECAUSE OF THIS. TRIED HEADERS AND NO LUCK THEY DIDN'T FIT, BUT I THINK THE GUY AT MURRAYS SPEED AND CUSTOM SOLD ME THE WRONG HEADERS, BECAUSE I'VE BEEN READING ONLINE THAT THEY SHOULD BE SHORTY HEADERS NOT LONG TUBES. DO YOU HAVE A SET OR MAKE A SET. I'VE READ THAT THE A/C BRACKET NEEDS TO BE MODIFIED ALSO TO INSTALL THEM. ANY INFO WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED, ALSO THE PLUGS ARE STRAIGHT NOT ANGLE.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE, TOM

A - Tom,
Sorry, we do not manufacture or sell headers.

Shorty headers like the ones shown on the attached catalog listing should fit, but you might need to modify any header for clearance.

JEG's listing of these Patriot headers states these "Specific Fit" short headers will fit your application:

http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_10001_10002_773384_-1_10605

You should be able to find them at Jeg's, Summit Racing or any speed shop.

Good luck!
