Chris, it all a matter of money, and what you want to do with the car.
You can get ss exhaust, including mufflers in the stock 1 3/4" diameter,
a nice steel exhaust and muffler system, in mild steel, add Rick's
headers, which are very well made, provide a coating for the headers, do
a custom exhaust in 2 1/4", add an H Pipe, and do this last system in SS
with Flowmaster mufflers. If you provide the headers, mufflers, and
have the custom exhaust done in SS with H Pipe to fit to your headers,
figure on $600-$700.
Just money, you know. Done right, the headers and exhaust will add to
the performance of the car, and of course the sound is not bad either.
