I can not answer your first questions, but I can say I would NOT do the summit racing dual kit from the headers back to the bumper ... EVER AGAIN 2 1/2" kit sucked!! had to cut and weld and re- engineer to get it to hang nice and tuck up and exit decent. For just a little more cash I could have had a shop fab one up and sip a lemon-aide while I watched.... I have read the stock type kits are better.

I was looking to do this in the off season as well. 1970 Conv with the 400/TH400.
I have similar questions as Tony.
X pipe versus No X pipe?
Any thoughts on the X pipe versus the X Change with the provision for cutouts.

I'm running the Pypes 2 1/2" X-change system on my car. It is going to be a little lower because the X has to clear the drive shaft. If you want to hear what it sounds like, search youtube for "BearGFR" or "Bear's GTO" to find several videos of it running in various situations. So far I've not had any ground clearance issues.

You can see a pretty good side view of the system in this "launch" photo.


And a few others...


The angle on this shot makes them look lower than they really are. In actuality, the flange on the dump outlet is within 1/8" of hitting the floor pan so it couldn't really go any higher.
