    Thrush glasspacs from AutoZone----------- fit nice, priced right---------- nice vintage sound-------- for 2" pipes ask for #24-200.

    My vote is for Hooker Aero Chamber mufflers.....if you want the best flow.

    It will be all studebaker powered, In the dirt track world, where I hang out ( I worship at the alter of speed) we refer to that style of manifold as ram horns, and yes, GM makes a set very similar to the R3 manifod, that's why I used the term. My concern, when asking about the mufflers, is to have the best flowing exhaust from front to back. Good pictures, those are the manifolds I'm interested in.

    StudeRich, Sorry I scared you like that, it wasn't intentional. ;>)

    The Chevy Ram's Horn manifold go above the edge of the valve covers. The R3 manifolds do not...while visually they look similar but once installed the differences are obvious.

    That would be my guess also, but whats with the "Ramhorns"? Stude. Manifolds go down not up.

    Rich,unless Chevy made Avanti R1s I would guess the Hawk WILL be Studebaker powered ?

    Ramhorns are used on small block Chevys.

    Anyway the Manifolds have nothing to do with the Mufflers, whatever fits will work.

    I'm guessing he's talking about R3 headers......

    Thanks to all. I'm more interested in performance (spell that breathing) than sounding like the fast and furious. Sometime in the next year (or so) I want to drop the R1 in a '56 Power Hawk. A little rumble would be OK though. In response to the question on what I mean by headers, I mean the Rams horn style. I like to keep everything but the carb and fuel pump straight Studebaker.

    I've no experience with Edelbrock mufflers but they sure make some mighty fine performance products. I would expect their mufflers are excellent.
