Project Shark Attack's 1979 Corvette Exhaust System - Exhausting Conclusion

PSA Gets A Hi-Tech Exhaust System

It's hard to see in the photo, but the exhaust tips are black chrome, which went well with the PSA color scheme. They weren't high dollar, but were heavy gauge steel and should last a while. The tips were too long so we cut them off and welded them in place avoiding the screws that were supplied for retention.

As you can see the Corvette Central system fit perfectly from front to the back. Although our '79 shark didn't come with duals, you would never know it from the fit of the system. The aluminized exhaust pipes will last for quite a while with the electronic fuel injection. As an added benefit, this system won't be expanding and contracting like a stainless system would.

We like the fit of the Magnaflow muffler under the bumper. The mufflers fit in place correctly and required no massaging to get in the correct position. There's a fine line when it comes to positioning the muffler at the correct height. If installed too low at the rear, the pipes will be too low. If you install the muffler too high at the rear, the pipes will hit the rear camber strut bracket.
