Exhaust system
« on: November 27, 2012, 03:10:09 PM »
1972 Pinto Wagon - 2000cc.  I need a muffler and exhaust system.  Can someone steer me to a supplier?  Thanks, jt

are you looking for a bolt on kit?

If ford pintos are not fast then why chevy's have to use there parts to make them fast?

Yes, I guess so.  Something identical to that which is in place now if possible. jt

I just took my 72 wagon to my favorite non-national chain exhaust shop (a place in Clarksville TN I've used for 15 yrs), and had a new system custom bent, with muffler, for $100 bucks. All welded, no clamps to leak, etc. :) I doubt at 40 yrs old that the exhaust in place is original. I know mine wasn't. lol

i was going to recommend that you go to a local shop and have them redo it. i can only see 2 complete bolt on systems but you will be looking at more than $300 for some reason.
Definitely take it to get it done at a shop, i can give you the part numbers tomorrow if you want see if you can get it cheaper some where else.

While yous are on the subject of exhaust.. [hint,hint] :)
 Any suggestions for a good-sounding muffler for the little 4 bangers?
Bought my Pinto in '12, last tagged in '97. Had it on the road (thanks to a $20) spring '14. Tima to tear it apart, fix it correctly this time....and play with the drive train. Got a totally free & complete drive train-engine, 5 speed, drive shaft, and computer!

I know everyone is going to chunk rocks at me, but I run a old style glass pack on my 2.0 powered T Bucket and it sounds good to me.

Not I,  my good man. ;) I have a glass pack as well, and agree the sound is quite pleasant. Sounds like something bigger than it is, and isn't 'ricey' at all. lol :) Exhaust note/tone is extremely subjective, though. :)

i never heard a glass pack on a 4 cylinder but im sure it sounds good. i have them on my truck and i love the way they sound.
now i have put flow masters on a 4 cylinder and depending on what car some sound good other sounds reallyyyyy bad.
i like the way the stainless borla muffler sound. the twin loop muffler will give you more a eru sound to it. if thats what your looking for.

I run a pacesetter with a 3 inch glasspack that slowly reduces to a 2.5 flowmaster, so Manny people mistake it for a v8 when they hear it lopeing at idle, very unique sound at high rpms, and no cat
