To tell the truth, I usually don't want to hear the exhaust noise on
any car that I have to drive for more than 30 seconds. Induction
noise on the other hand - there is nothing like the wild scream these
engines make with an un-muffled intake. I am sure you could suck
squirrels right out of the trees at 6K RPM. Even better than taking
the air cleaner off Dads 1968 GMC pickup when I was a kid. Boy -
that brings back memories. Like commonly going through 10 gallons of
gas in one night. I have to admit, a 327 with a Rochester "quadrapig"
carb and "three on the tree" transmission was almost all you needed
for some big fun!! (just add beer and girl, or just beer)
Last summer when I rebuilt my motor, I did take it out for a short
drive with just the headers and no air cleaner. The neighbors
weren't that impressed but I sure had fun :-)
