Fenderwells & Flowmasters PICS!!!!

I finally did my exhaust system on my '77 below in sig. I used Hedman Fenderwells, Flowmaster 40 Series Delta Flow, and Heavy Gauge Aluminized Pipe (from custom exhaust shop, with 2 45 degree bends for me to make nice tips), everything in 2 1/2" size. WOW! Really woke up the motor and the sound! Talk about a super-nice, high-performance sound!

(I got rid of my In-Frame POS Headers and the old ratty exhaust).

These are loud, but they are a "nice" loud, not crappy sounding like a glasspack. Definitely worth the money for the quality.

Hedman Fenderwells $139
Flowmasters $152
Pipe, Hangers, etc $40

Total all done was $331, and it took me less than 1 hour from the headers back, the headers themselves took me about 1/2 hour to put on. That even included making custom angle cuts on my 45 tips. Everything fit like a glove.

Anyone thinking of doing Fenderwells instead of In-Frame, I highly recommend it!

Excuse the condition of the body on the CJ, it is currently in "body-work" stage, now that all mechanicals have been rebuilt! Also excuse the size of these pics, LOL, the camera was mistakenly set on high resolution. I'll get some better ones when I get this out of my garage this weekend, my driveway is in a bit of disarray, making room for my new boat!

(Check out the custom made tips, not bad for about $5 of aluminized pipe and hand cutting with a hacksaw!)

yup ive got hedman inframe headers with dual flowmaster 40's on my 304. There is really no good way to run the inframes, they suck. I would be very interested in pics.

I'll post some pics as soon as I get them. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

I want to say they are the delta flows, but I bought them two years ago and im not 100% sure. I am running dual 2 1/2 inch which has proved to be a little too big. My main problem with the fenderwells is that they rub on the frame, rub on the steering shaft, and exit right at my transmission crossmember. I went to every muffler shop in town and everyone of them said that they couldnt turn a pipe around the crossmember because of the lack of room. I ended out just buying some cheap flexpipe and doing it myself. The exhaust sounds great but I am having all kinds of problems with it heating up my brake lines and the whole steering situation. I am looking forward to the pics of your setup.

It all depends on the glasspacks, the majority of them dont have the "clean" sound you would associate with flowmasters or other quality mufflers.

i like it when they rumble
glass packs rock
my friend used to have an 84 fullsize blazer with a 350 and 12" glass pax
he would put it in second gear and go about 45mph and drop it into 1st and it would shoot fire about a foot out of the tail pipes
sometimes chunks of glass would shoot out too

i loved that truck

LOL, working on the pics, LOL. Should be getting the camera today or tomorrow.

I don't have ANY of the fitment problems you have mentioned, and the Fenderwells actually have CURED the problems of interference, such as brake lines, clutch linkage, rubbing, etc.

I have the Hedman Fenderwell Headers, as I said before, and HIGHLY recommend them for proper fitment. No steering rubbing, very simple fender trimming (just the little "flat ear" that extends at the rear corner of each fender gets trimmed back to the "curve" of the fender, I used a sawzall and it took about 30 seconds per fender.)

I promise I will get the picks ASAP for you. You'll like the fit.

By the way, 2 1/2" sounds/looks just right in my application, and fits great. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

If anybody is looking for a suggestion on Fenderwell exit mufflers try these. They sound great! <a href="http://www.holley.com/HiOctn/ProdLine/Products/ES/ESSP/USMM.html" target="_blank">http://www.holley.com/HiOctn/ProdLine/Products/ES/ESSP/USMM.html</a>
Or the Hooker part # is 21037 and 38. Black or Chrome. I've had both. They use the same baffle desigin in them as the old 60 era side pipes. I can't wait till I hear my LS1 running through them.

Sorry guys,

I have had so much sh*t going on lately, that I just got the dig camera back. I'm working on a boat (buying) deal, selling parts, working on running for school committee, etc, LOL

I promise I'll get the pics taken by this weekend and post them ASAP. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />
