Right on you finally found some ( remember one of your old posts).

Are you going with an 'H' pipe or 'X' pipe on your cross over? That 305 is going roar now

Exhaust work can be a pain. The constant heat/cool cycle causes all the nuts and bolts to damn near weld themselves together. Tons of rust, and other stuff that just makes it a challenge.

If you've got good tools, some help from experienced friend/accquaintance, and plenty of "oomph" and cuss words, it'* pretty straight forward, tho.
