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
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
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
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,
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
Here is one site that sells the CJ donuts:
Please let us know if this was any help.
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.
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
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:
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
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.

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