3" Pypes system with a X-pipe. I really like the exhaust behind the tires.

A buddy around the corner is finishing up his 72 and he has exact same set up as my car, except no tailpipes. His car is like half as loud as mine, but he doesn't have the hp I have.

Over the axel behind the rear tires. Don't like them coming all the way to the bumper and straight.

Those exits appear to meet Steve's Nova Site exhaust exit rules, however will require closer inspection. As you mentioned, straight out to the bumper or dumps under the rear end are forbidden by SNS.

Ditto. I just installed a Heidt's 4 link but I WILL find a way to get the tail pipes up and over the the new 9" and dump just behind the tires. Looks like it's gonna be fun.

You can't see the pipes until the very end.

Takes a good muffler man to do this.

Tuck and dump, I've never heard that. I love that look.

I am piecing my tailpipes together with mandrel bent pieces. It is a hard look to achieve because the tube has to be tucked tight to the frame/body until the very end where it takes a dump. Grrrrrr,uuuuummmmph, plop

ditto, except 18" of mid pipe and 3" flows and turndowns angled down and directed out from under the car. When romping on her at the light, neighbors get dusted. I love my car.

Id like to throw in an h pipe some day just for the experience.

And some real sidepipes and matching headers if I ever win the lotto! THats titties!
