Stoddard Stainless Sport Exhaust System for 356 and 912.
A few years ago, we helped the TV Show, "Overhaulin'" build a custom 356 by supplying them with sheetmetal and trim items to complete the project. The Host, Chip Foose, did a lot of custom work on the 356 and our friend Rod Emory chipped in as well. One finished car included a pretty wild exhaust system that we loved.
The exhaust system was engineered at Magnaflow for the TV Show -- we took that original design and adapted it for larger scale production to fit 356A through 356C cars with the included mandrel-bent tubes that slide into the stock bumper outlets. We also created tips so that the all-stainless-steel performance exhaust could be used on a 912. It's got a great, throaty sound and works well on stock and 1720cc big bore engines.
The exhaust systems are constructed out of 400-series stainless steel with polished straight-through perforated-core mufflers. The design incorporates an X or Cross pipe design to boost torque, which is usually difficult from a packaging perspective on a flat-four engine.
We took extra care to perfect the exhaust note of the system. There is no resonances or drone at speed -- just a nice, throaty sound during acceleration.
