    tv cable lines up better and the 1/2" I added made it easier to remove and install. if you look at the first pic, the cable is off center and not much cable left before bottoming out. maybe wasn't an issue but I fixed it anyways. Click image for larger version.

ID:	40124 the down pipes will be cut to length once the mufflers arrive, I am placing them as far forward as I can. likely cut off 6" from the shorter one. they were left long to square the pipes with each other and the frame, I also made brackets to connect between muffler clamps. both to keep it square and to prevent mufflers from rattling against each other. they will be about an inch apart.

ID:	40125 the drivers side was pretty straightforward so I completed it, including drilling and mounting 3 hangers. it might get a coat of high temp paint and a stainless tip but it just needs cut to length and bolted in. the passenger side wasn't as simple. a 45 +/- at the tank, a few degrees up, then back down over the rear end and another 45 to line up with muffler. I wanted to wait on the mufflers before making the last 45 as a few degrees or a fraction of an inch could make the rest useless. I have a bit more grinding to clean them up and hangers to mount and mufflers should be here by then. they will have to wait while I am camping in the mountains so a few hours tomorrow is it until next week.

    well my $50 dollar mufflers finally arrived! no name glass packs of the same size were just above $20, cherry bombs were $25 and the purple hornys were $35. are these better or did I buy into the hype? doesn't matter now and I wasted more money on dumber things. well here they are, where they will lay for another week.

    Ive had several (old school) guys tell me about how good Smithy's sound on a split-six exhaust. I'll wait to see how you like em....specifically if/how much they drone.

    Once the mufflers are installed Please take a video with sound and share it if possible. I have a 250 with the cast iron split manifolds and have been wanting to try out a set of glasspacks on mine. I would love to hear what yours sounds like.

    I'm also considering exhaust options for a split exhaust. I'd also appreciate a sound clip.

    mufflers are on but passenger tailpipe just cut and stuck together. ran out of mig wire at 7:00 on a sunday. sounded really good with just pipes but know that would get old quick. already have one car with lake pipes/no baffles and the novelty wears off within a few blocks. mufflers on and tailpipe on loose, has I nice sound at idle, not loud but you can hear it. gets louder when revved and has a raspy crackle when you let off. should finish tomorrow and attempt a sound bite then. no idea how to record, or if it will upload here. any tips? or is it just recording a video? never did that either but think I can master that.

    I usually record video on my phone, and then make a short video on youtube. Then post the link here

    recorded one on my phone but the playback sounded like a weedwacker echoing threw a tin can! I will try again tomorrow. the Clifford parts made an unbelievable difference! I was skeptical but after having the offy with 36/36 and langdons, definitely worth the extra money. cant say the same for my exhaust hangers though. a 2 mile test drive and one broke. the busted hanger, then a few pics of my completed exhaust before the paint burns off. the labor involved in making the exhaust was well beyond its value. I did it anyways partially because I wanted to build it, not buy it and partially because I doubt the chain store muffler places would/could make the downpipes. Click image for larger version.
