Custom exhaust...

Leon Betts

Tim tacks pieces of the exhaust in place. He will tack weld the entire system together to make sure it is located just how he wants. The V-band clamp joiners allow the system to be disassembled into three separate pieces. Once he has everything exactly where he wants, Tim will finish the TIG welds the welding bench.

The V-band clamp joiners and mandrel bends are clearly visible in this photo.

The crossover pipe balances the exhaust pulses from either cylinder bank of the V8 to smooth exhaust flow and increase engine efficiency...so I've been told!

My '55 Chev 2-door Hardtop is going to be pretty fancy...so, it needs a fancy exhaust to match. Something that looks great, performs well and, most importantly, sounds the goods. And Tim is in charge of making it happen and is fabricating a custom 2.5", TIG-welded exhaust complete with a crossover pipe, billet hangers, Aeroflow mufflers and resonators. When complete, the exhaust will be ceramic coated in my favourite colour...black.
