    I have decided to build my own boom tubes and exhaust system. Has anyone run boom tubes with mufflers? I'm planning to run mufflers and exhaust cutouts both of which will go into the boom tubes.

          Yes, I had a 50 Merc with an Olds 98 engine. Had a lot of fun with it.

            Almost ready to start on the exhaust. I had to replace the subframe connectors, replace the drivers floor pan and having the seats redone.

              Yes we did that but the cop's would give you a ticket. Still outlawed here in Fl. But it was neat.
