Foster’s '69 Camaro

We had previously built a nice custom mandrel-bent exhaust for Foster's Chevelle, so
we were honored to have the opportunity to serve him again when he called us and asked about an exhaust for his Camaro. This car is very nicely built, with late-model LS1 power, drag race-style 4-link rear suspension with diagonal locator bar and coil-overs, and custom, widened rear wheels that have a vintage look despite the wide tires. With its aggressive-sounding Whipplecharger, the car makes over 700 hp to the rear wheels.

Foster wanted a 3" exhaust with nice tone that was not too loud for street driving. Unfortunately, because of the drag-style rear suspension, we could not route the exhaust around the suspension crossmember and diagonal link. So, Foster asked us to build turnouts before the rear axle. We fabricated a custom H-pipe crossover to help smooth the exhaust sound. The Magnaflow 3" round race mufflers are tucked up into the driveshaft tunnel for maximum ground clearance. We added baffle inserts in the turnouts and packed them with fiberglass to take more of the edge off of the exhaust note. The baffle inserts are removable so that Foster can fine-tune the sound as desired.

This exhaust was made from stainless steel and was fully TIG-welded.

Gwen’s '67 Camaro

Scott and Gwen are members of the Highlands Ranch Hot Rodders. We had previously built a custom mandrel-bent exhaust for Scott's Chevelle, and we were very pleased to have the opportunity to build the exhaust for Gwen's 502-powered Camaro.

Before working on the exhaust, we discussed the existing transmission crossmember and ladder bar setups on the car. Both of these bars hung too low and scraped the ground, so Scott asked us to reconfigure these bars to provide more ground clearance. First, we removed a section of the transmission crossmember and raised it, allowing the crossmember to fit up closer to the transmission cradle while keeping the same mounting location and height. This modification had the added benefit of allowing the custom mandrel-bent and fabricated 3" X-pipe to sit higher. Next, we removed the existing ladder bar crossmember and bent a new one which fit higher, again provding much more ground clearance.

After the chassis modifications were complete, we mandrel-bent and fabricated a new 3" exhaust using aluminized tube and great-sounding Flowmaster 40-series mufflers. The pipes and mufflers are tucked up close to the body for a terrific appearance. We routed the tailpipe carefully over the axle and around the fuel tank, and finished the exhaust with polished stainless steel tips that fit in the tight space between the quarterpanel and leaf springs.

This exhaust fits great and sounds very mean. Thanks, Scott and Gwen!

Craig’s '10 Camaro SS

Craig had just taken delivery of his new Camaro when he called us for a custom exhaust. After discussing various setups he had seen and heard on YouTube and discussion forums, Craig asked us to remove his mufflers and replace the tailpipes with new straight-through stainless steel tubes.

Since the factory tailpipes (forward of the mufflers) do not have slip-joints, we carefully cut and removed the tailpipes and muffler sections, and cleaned-up the cuts with a grinder. We then custom-mandrel-bent stainless steel tubes and installed slip-joints using stainless steel Accuseal clamps.

After looking at different options for tips, Craig asked us to install 5" Magnaflow polished stainless steel tips. We carefully centered the tips inside the holes in the rear bumper/diffuser, and installed hangers to make sure the tips stayed in place. Since the tips are made from 304 stainless, we TIG-welded them to the tailpipes for a high-quality weld. The result is an aggressive-looking exhaust that is not too loud, but has a great rumble!

Fritz’s '69 Camaro

Fritz began planning his exhaust over a year before bringing his Pro Touring-styled Camaro to Hanksville for a custom exhaust. This car features 540 big-block power, a T-56 6-speed transmission, a very nicely detailed undercarriage, and a 4-link coil-over suspension.

After researching various options for routing the exhaust, Fritz decided to purchase a 3" Magnaflow X-pipe kit and to have us install it in the tight confines between his driveshaft and the Hotchkiss transmission mount and crossbracing, after which we would custom-mandrel-bend and install a new Hanksville exhaust.

After tack-welding the V-band clamps to the 4"-3" header collector reducers, we fitted the header extensions and X-pipe. The fit is tight, but there is enough clearance and the 3" pipes do not contact any other parts of the car, ensuring a rattle-free installation.

Behind the X-pipe, Fritz chose 3" aluminized tube for the remainder of the exhaust. We bent the muffler extensions and fitted the mufflers close to the body for maximum ground clearance. The tailpipes wrap up and over the axle,  then down and around the coil-over shocks and stainless steel fuel cell. We finished the exhaust by TIG-welding 304 stainless steel tubes to the ends to serve as exhaust tips.

We were happy to be able to help Fritz with this very special car, and can't wait to see it once it is finished!

After researching various options for routing the exhaust, Fritz decided to purchase a 3" Magnaflow X-pipe kit and to have us install it in the tight confines between his driveshaft and the Hotchkiss transmission mount and crossbracing, after which we would custom-mandrel-bend and install a new Hanksville exhaust.

After tack-welding the V-band clamps to the 4"-3" header collector reducers, we fitted the header extensions and X-pipe. The fit is tight, but there is enough clearance and the 3" pipes do not contact any other parts of the car, ensuring a rattle-free installation.

Behind the X-pipe, Fritz chose 3" aluminized tube for the remainder of the exhaust. We bent the muffler extensions and fitted the mufflers close to the body for maximum ground clearance. The tailpipes wrap up and over the axle,  then down and around the coil-over shocks and stainless steel fuel cell. We finished the exhaust by TIG-welding 304 stainless steel tubes to the ends to serve as exhaust tips.

We were happy to be able to help Fritz with this very special car, and can't wait to see it once it is finished!

Alan’s Trans Am

Alan liked the sound of the Borla exhaust that he had on his Trans Am, but the front section of his exhaust was to low, causing damage to the cats. He asked us to reconfigure the cat pipe and Y-pipe, to give the exhaust as much ground clearance as possible. He also asked us to install an aftermarket set of subframe connectors that he had purchased.

Alan's new mandrel-bent Hanksville exhaust uses high-flow metallic core converters and a custom 2.5" stainless steel Y-pipe that features a custom merged collector to ease the transition into the 3" mid-pipe.

George's '68 Firebird

George's convertible Firebird was in its final build phases at Classic Restorations when he contacted us about building his custom exhaust. We knew that this performance restoration was an extensive project, and that George wanted the best for his car. After discussing his goals, we worked with him to design a free-flowing performance exhaust that would accentuate the undercar modifications and detailing that he and the Classic Restorations team had made.

Before the fabrication began, we took care to wrap the car in a plastic covering to keep dust from gathering on the new paint and interior.

Starting behind the headers, we custom-mandrel-bent the 2.5" 409 stainless steel tube,  carefully routing the header extensions over the aftermarket crossbracing. By carefully measuring and bending the tubes to clear the bracing, we were able to achieve tight clearances between the tubes, bracing and the transmission, without the risk of rattling or overheating any of the components. Once the header extensions were formed, we notched and welded an H-crossover pipe and hung the 4"x9" stainless steel Magnaflow mufflers.

The tailpipes were then measured and mandrel-bent to clear the aftermarket stainless steel fuel tank, and to exit between the quarterpanels and leaf springs. We checked with George before finalizing the tailpipe exit locations, to make sure that they achieved the look that he wanted. Since George did not want to use exhaust tips, we lightly polished the visible sections of the stainless steel tailpipes.

This exhaust fits and looks great, and helps to show off the nicely detailed undercarriage of this car. George's Firebird was displayed at the 2008 Rocky Mountain Rod and Custom Show, and we were honored to be a small part of its build process.

Sam's LS1 Camaro

Sam takes great care of his Camaro, and is planning several engine modifications for the future. To support these modifications, he wanted a true-dual exhaust with Flowmaster Super 44 mufflers. He installed an aftermarket panhard bar to help make room for the dual exhaust.

We discussed his plans at length and decided that we could fit a true-dual 2.5" system without rattles and without greatly impeding his ground clearance. The muffler fitment would be a challenge but after careful measurement we were sure that we could make the two mufflers fit in the location of the stock single muffler.

Since the car came to us with just the open headers and no exhaust, we added high-flow metallic cats and custom-mandrel-bent the 2.5" stainless steel X-pipe in place of the factory Y-pipe. This custom X-pipe tucks-up close to the body and driveshaft and provides clearance for the aftermarket torque arm.

After the X-pipe section, the dual pipes are routed over the axle and panhard bar, then snake their way into the dual Super 44 mufflers which are tucked between the rear axle and the spare tirewell. The muffler installation is very clean, includes several hangers and uses band clamps and Accuseal clamps to enable removal and replacement if needed.

After the mufflers, the stainless steel tailpipes are routed around the spare tirewell and into polished stainless steel dual tips for a clean  appearance.

After the X-pipe section, the dual pipes are routed over the axle and panhard bar, then snake their way into the dual Super 44 mufflers which are tucked between the rear axle and the spare tirewell. The muffler installation is very clean, includes several hangers and uses band clamps and Accuseal clamps to enable removal and replacement if needed.

After the mufflers, the stainless steel tailpipes are routed around the spare tirewell and into polished stainless steel dual tips for a clean  appearance.

Sam's LS1 Camaro

Sam takes great care of his Camaro, and is planning several engine modifications for the future. To support these modifications, he wanted a true-dual exhaust with Flowmaster Super 44 mufflers. He installed an aftermarket panhard bar to help make room for the dual exhaust.

We discussed his plans at length and decided that we could fit a true-dual 2.5" system without rattles and without greatly impeding his ground clearance. The muffler fitment would be a challenge but after careful measurement we were sure that we could make the two mufflers fit in the location of the stock single muffler.

John's '67 Camaro

We dig the old-school musclecar stance of John's Camaro. This car came to us after much of the mechanical work had been completed, before detailing and paintwork on the body. John wanted a low, muscular sound for his Camaro, so we recommended 2.5" tubes for better ground clearance and Flowmaster Super 44 mufflers for a great musclecar sound.

We measured and mandrel-bent the X-pipe, adding two extra bends before the mufflers to enable them to tuck-up closer to the body. We routed the tailpipes around the fuel tank and turned them down to exit between the quarterpanels and the leaf springs.

With the Super 44 mufflers, this Camaro has a great, low-toned rumble that matches the overall look of the car.

Rick's Camaro

Rick from North Bear Automotive brought this nice 2nd generation Camaro to us for a 3" stainless steel exhaust. After the headers, we mandrel-bent the X pipe and routed the header extensions close to the driveshaft, but not too close, to allow as much ground clearance as possible.

Rick chose Flowmaster 40-series mufflers for that classic musclecar sound. After the mufflers, the pipes are routed up and over the axle, then dump behind the axle before the fuel tank. Rick chose this tailpipe routing to allow a cleaner look, and because the 3" tubes would not fit in the stock location between the quarterpanels and the leaf springs.

Eli's Camaro

Eli was one of our first customers, and is a good friend of Hanksville Hot Rods.  He recently purchased a 3rd-generation Camaro as a High School Drags project car for his daughter, and asked us to build a true-dual custom race exhaust for this car.

Since this car is powered by a mildly-built 350, we chose to use 2.5" stainless steel tube. The driver-side tube is routed between the transmission pan and the crossmember, then has an H-pipe crossover tube that joins with the passenger-side tube. We added two 5-inch long, 3" in/out stainless steel race mufflers and turndowns that are pointed downward and outward to help exhaust the gases away from the car. This is a very compact, lightweight and free-flowing exhaust that is a great solution for race cars that need some sound reduction without adversely impacting exhaust flow.

Scott's Camaro

Scott's very low convertible Camaro has a heavily-built and turbocharged 383. The car has a 3" single exhaust after the turbo. Wanting to open-up the exhaust, Scott asked us to install an electric cutout after the cat. We welded a stainless steel mandrel bend and added a stainless steel 3-bolt flange to attach the electric cutout. We then added a mandrel-bent turndown.
