Happy Easter Kurtiss. That is one awesome looking exhaust!!! I am anxiously awaiting your first start. Would be nice to visit your project again once the Covid-19 passes us by.When considering the exhaust system, there are so many options to think about – it’s exhausting (pun intended). The sound of a real GT40 is incredible with a “bundle of snakes” 180° exhaust system. For my build, I’m trying for the retro look and sound with modern hardware.
Last November/December, before I pulled the engine out, Bruce of BJ’s Race Cars (a local shop) did an amazing job fabricating 180 degree headers. He used 1-¾” primary’s and 3” collectors to a 6” Magnaflow straight thru muffler and Flowmaster resonator on each side. He followed the lines of the “K” brace and the exhaust exits the car under the center of the bumper.
I sent the system out for ceramic coating in a titanium color. The engine was reinstalled in March and hope to fire it up by the end of this month. Can’t wait to start the engine – should sound great.
