Hi, I did not look at the pictures, however all the 4-cylinder Chevrolet ended with a short tail pipe that was dangerous. If you are replacing the system you are strongly urged to extend the tail pipe out to at least the bumper length.

Agree 100% with Antique Mechanic,

I fitted a reproduction system on my 28, noisy as anything, replaced it the following day. Quieter, safer, and you leave the noise behind.

Cheers

I just took a look at that exhaust system for you. It is a crude repo of the 27 system.

If you are serious about a new system I recommend either Parks Pipes for a metal version that is fairly good or Klass Kollection for a stainless steel version.

May I reccomend stainless steel. My 28 has had 3 exhaust systems in 38 years. The first 2 were mild steel and lasted about 7 years each. The current one is stainless and after about 24 years is still perfect and will outlast me.

Sure more expensive up front, but do it once, let the great grand kids worry about it in 50 years time.

Cheers

Gidday Fellas,

Here are a few photos when I put on a new stainless steel exhaust last year, Rays is testimony to stainless going the distance.

Car was picked up, dropped off and new system installed for $700.00 - It might not be physically correct but it has a lovely quiet note to it.




Cheers Grant.

I was only wrong one time in my life so far. But that time I was right, and only thought I was wrong....ED
