Sure wish I could hear it. I'm not real happy with the Magnaflows I chose. They're allright most the time, but under a low load, like going up a hill on a freeway, it develops an obnoxious droan. Problem with trying to hear something on a computer...it ain't gonna happen accuratly. My goal was close to a late model Mustang, so I'll be anxious to hear what your thoughts are after you get to drive it for a while.
i went with 70 series flowmasters

Rich:

You might have to try Borla or a Magnaflow set of mufflers to get the sound you want.

put it down on the ground and drove it ahead about 6 feet.seems to run,stop and steer o/k.but the left tail pipe i thought would clear the shock does not,so i need to change that.still need to do a wheel alignment and some other small stuff[install seat,hood ect.].i am getting real close,maybe this weekend for a test drive.[if the stars align,gods in my favour].the exhaust sounds like a late model mustang  :003:

if you look at the spex page i posted you will see the 31640 is a shallow cam and the 31631 has a deeper/longer cam.that would make the 31631 loose on a s/w filler neck

If I could lay this stuff on like a pro body shop, I may not be color sanding either, but I can't and the only way I can end up with something acceptable to me is the hard way. A little orangepeel helps make the body work look better as well.

Thanks, and now we have to wonder if some of the aftermarket manufactures are unaware there is suppose to be two different filler necks and use the same tooling for both.

looking great Rich !
color (clear) sanding is something nearly unheard of here in Europe.  some professional paint shops will even ask if you are nuts to do so. it seems there is a lot of difference in the paint used even on water based or old style paint. It takes a brave man to take a DA to a fresh coat of paint for sure. loving the final look and shine though ! talking about it, even though I am not so fond of the modern engine and stuff, but your car just has the look. it'll look terrific again in the new shiny paint ! congratulations for your patience and keep going !

Rich, it was exactly what I was thinking in my mind. I didn't even buy the G31 for using it on the 57wagon, it just came in a lot of NOS caps. and I will make use of it later on other cars. My tank and filler neck are original to the 57  Del Rio wagon and the G31 cap is loose. I was exactly thinking the same as you, if they used a different neck to make sure that you had a vented cap on the (non vented) wagon and Ranchero tank (filler necks). I would be interested in what Gary ( Limey) bought for a cap for his Ranchero and if it fits ?!

That's a huge difference!
Just to make sure we've got our facts straight......
DJ: on your Del Rio wagon, is it the oem tank or an aftermarket?
Clusterbuster: What model '57 do you have that the tank's neck is too 'thin', like DJ's wagon? I was assuming it was a Custom or Fairlane, but realized I couldn't remember for sure.
