Hey guys. I am looking into a split manifold for my 57 235. I want it to sound deep. No chainsaw or rice burner sound. Does anyone have a suggestion on muffler and split manifold/ header combo?
Will the stock manifold sound good split? I'm trying to decide if I want a split manifold or notClifford also made a long tube header which they no longer make. The headers are cool and sound great but one thing you should know if you decide to use them is that the flanges tend to warp a bit after they have been used for a little while so they usually have to have some weld added to the sealing face of the flange and ground straight after they warp. Usually only need to do this once. You can also make your own split manifold out of a stock manifold.
hard to find and costly. All the deep pocket 53-54 Corvette guys want them and so do the average Joe six-banger folks.I have a dual exhaust manifold on my 235 in my 56 Belair. It was a rare dealer add on option, they used the dual exhaust manifold from the 1955 Corvette six cylinder, if you want to try to keep stock. I'm not sure how hard they are to find.
