    my car came with no tail pipes just turn downs "too loud" for me
    I ordered walker pipes from RO i hope i can use them on the flow master set up it has.
    i know for sure the pipe is going to need to be expanded to 2-1/4 or 2 1/2 to fit into muffler.

    I installed 3" mandrel bent tailpipes on my '67 Skylark. "Mild" 464" Buick. Street driven. I did it so you can hear yourself think inside the car. My friend did exactly the same and it didn't slow his car down at the track at all.

    Likely going to wind up taking it to a muffler shop and let them bend you some pipes. Hard to make stock pipes fit non stock type mufflers.

    Getting the pipes to go over the axle (OTA) is VERY expensive. I searched a LOT for OTA pipes, couldn't find 'em, just complete systems. To get the pipes bent by a muffle shop was about 450$. Up to 72 is a little easier because they exit out the back and travel on each side of the gas tank.

    Start checkin out wreckers.

    $450 is ridiculous. I had a complete system custom built for my car less then that. OP, call a few muffler/exhaust shops, I bet the tail pipes can be done for no more then a couple hundred.

    I paid less than 1/2
    I paid less than 1/2 that for a complete system, from headers to out the back.
