    Hope you're young and have long legs - the burns from hooker pipes are amazing.  If you have the bucks the stock pipes and covers are the way to go.  They are not as loud as hookers but you can lay your bare hand on the covers at any time no matter how long the motor has been running.

    I put Hooker headers and side pipes on my '72 convertible.  Loved the sound.  Beware the heat of the side pipes, it burns skin.  If you want to remove the side pipes (e.g., racing) I suggest a liberal application of graphite on both the header part and the side pipe part of the connection or else rust will make them very difficult to separate.

    Anyone have experience in installing headers and sidepipes on a C3 please share any experiences, pitfalls, etc. with me. Would much appreciate it. Just considering it at this point. Would probably go with Doug's or Hooker equipment.
