  • Avanti Exhaust

    Can anyone tell me where I can order up a custom exhaust for an Avanti already made up. Thanks for your help![8D]

        I saw that Jim Heiple had the main exhaust pipes for the "quiet tone" exhaust at York, if that's your thing. Dunno if he sold them or not but I *think* (may be worth it to ask) that Silvertone only makes the standard exhaust.

        Personally I prefer the standard exhaust anyway. Avantis should have a little snap-crackle-pop to them.

          They are ok for impressing people around town, but drive 200 miles with them and a 3.73 rear end and I guarentee that your ears will be ringing.

            Paul,

            IIRC, that was reason #3 on my "why I sold my Avanti" list.

              This whole discussion reminds me of an Avanti that JP was working on... came with a NOS "quiet tone" exhaust so he installed it. I think that car had a Powershift and a 4.xx:1 rear end. It was hard to drive it in a socially responsible manner! Anyway, IIRC he put glasspacks on it with the "quiet tone" pipes and it really was quiet. When you stuck your foot in it you could just barely hear the exhaust over the sucking sound from the carburetor. It was actually a really nice combination if you wanted to have a quiet car that still had a little bit of sporty sound to it.

              The older gentleman that bought the car loved it; I was concerned that he'd nitpick over cosmetics (the paint was a little rough; it was solid but definitely a 20-footer) but his only complaint was that the exhaust was "way too loud."

              I'm still shaking my head over that one... other than the rear gear, that was probably the most "civilized" Avanti that I've had the pleasure of driving.

                Oh, and for the record, I have driven an Avanti from Carlisle to Annapolis with the stock exhaust and if my ears were ringing I didn't notice...
