Has anyone ever come across a 4X4 exhaust kit for a 65 305?

I've have a 60 GMC 4X4. Not put together yet. What is the difference between 2WD and 4WD 305 exhaust? Are you just talking about the tail pipe route? If so, just get pieces from any vendor or take to a muffler shop if the kit I linked won't work.

Correct, just the pipe route, but looking to do a dual exhaust.

That's sounds like a good idea. If you do it, send me some pics, I will copy it on mine.

I had the manifold flanges on and off three times,ended up with two gaskets and a bunch of sealer in order to get them sealed. The angles were wrong. Then the intermediate pipe was way to short. Then the tailpipe was too short and bent wrong. Only took about a month to get right

and installed. They were good about sending the right pipes when I gave them measurements on how to modify what they sent,but what a hassle!! Wouldn't do it over again.

Sorry to hear about all those problems. Meineke probably the easiest bet!
Anyone ever see a 305v6 header instead of the stock manifold?
