In this installment of our R/T retro build, we will be adding MBRP's 'Cuda-style exhaust system. This, and the already installed Shaker Hood from Keystone, is what got us going on the whole retro thing in the first place. The styling is a throwback to Mopar's heyday and one of its killer machines, the '71 'Cuda. The 'Cuda was stuffed full of 426 cubic inches of Hemi muscle, so we have a little bit of motor envy with our 360. But, if everything works out right, we will be every bit as fast.
The MBRP kit is a split-dual design made completely out of stainless steel mandrel-bent tubing. It comes with a proprietary muffler (single inlet, dual exit) that you can see right through, so you know it will flow. Also in the kit is a fiberglass roll pan, designed to house the polished stainless tips and all the necessary hardware needed for the installation. The new roll pan comes in a raw gelcoat finish, so expect to do some paintwork to complete the job.
As with the other installs, we schlepped the truck over to Venable Kustoms in Huntington Beach, California, to have Marcel Venable bolt up the system. We even put Jeremy Cook from our sister publication, Classic Trucks, to work. If you want to know how the system sounds, go to MBRP's website, where sound clips are waiting for your listening pleasure.
