    Go to You Tube and look up " 1951 Studebaker revamp" . I could not get the direct link to copy.

    The Aussie that posted the videos is a friend of mine. I just emailed him and asked him to re-post them in this thread.

    There are several ways to do this, for super pretty you have exhaust headers made with a 3-3 split. Discontinuing the heat riser will also discontinue the automatic choke, but that can be overcome with a manual choke. Without the heat riser there will be a longer warm up time with limited response from the throttle when cold, this can be over come with a block heater. I did a backyard job by drilling a hole in the manifold and adding a pipe it was not a clean 3-3 split but it had a very different sound (I was 17 at the time) It is a lot of work and time for very little gain but it was fun to do at 17.

    A few years ago, there were some videos of an Australian fellow who did it, showing how he did it.
