    Exhaust System for a 72 Eldorado Convertible

    Now that my 72 Eldorado is back to starting my next fix is the exhaust system. I have patched the muffler but think it is time to replace it and so am thinking about a whole new exhaust system. Has anyone installed a free flow exhaust system or have any recommendations? I would like to get a little bit of sound, but nothing too crazy since its a convertible. Also, are there any performance headers that will bolt on to give a little more boost? The stock setup looks so restrictive....

    Check cad500parts for perfomance headers that fit right in! You will need a new exhaust though as the connection flange to the exhaust is lower than the original.
    Free flow is feasible. But if you don't like it too loud don't go flowmaster. Make sure the muffler is an absorbtion type instead of resonator so you will have a deep sound and no blare. And it should interconnect the left and right exhaust flow, so you will not need an X- or H-pipe (it would be too low clearance).
