351C 4V Exhaust system
#11
That will be the intent, won't take much internal work to bump up the conservative factory rating of 375hp...

[Image: 20190803-194404.jpg]Well everything seemed good until I went for the exhaust tips.

I bought a pair of reproduction tips in a Scott Drake labeled box.  I slide one on the tip and have 2 problems.

1)  The tips stick out about 4 inches too far when slipped all the way up to end of the narrow tailpipe end.  These tailpipes are supposedly made off of an NOS system.  
2) When I tighten the clamp on the exhaust tip it does not snug it onto the tailpipe.

Does anyone have shots of a successful setup?  I am about to take the tips back or go to an exhaust shop to have them cut things to fit.

I'll attach pictures of the Box and the bag the tips came in.  Let me know if this is a true Drake product or if someone just labeled a box.

the BOSS 351.

Yep,  thats where I got mine too.  Just down to the tips and the alignment of those.

That seems to be the devil in the details.

Just got portions of the system welded, had clamps before.
We fixed that issue, good eye.
