Recent Custom Exhaust Installation for a Classic Monte Carlo
By Scottsdale Muffler & Automotive
Chevrolet’s Monte Carlo was a top brand in luxury cars when it was introduced in the 70s. It maintained a reputation for excellence from the time the first model was put on the market in 1970 to the time it was retired in 2007. That’s six generations of quality workmanship and stunning design.
Scottsdale Muffler & Automotive was very excited to be able to work on one of these classic beauties recently when we did a custom exhaust installation. The beautiful white body and black interior of this Monte Carlo was a picture of retro charm, but the exhaust left something to be desired. Over time, the exhaust on the SS 454 engine was making more noise, which was distracting to the beauty of the car. It also wasn’t providing the performance the car was built to give.
The SS 454 engine was built to raise the horsepower of the Monte Carlo to 365 gross HP. The V8 engine was also given a more aggressive camshaft. Though the engine was cutting edge at the time it was built, some of its parts are now dated, both in physical form and technological performance.
We replaced the exhaust system with a custom design that helped to give the classic Monte Carlo the performance it was meant to have. The engine matches the beauty of the car, and the drive is smoother than it’s been in a while – maybe even smoother than it has ever been.
Benefits of Custom Exhaust Installation
There are many reasons why you might want to consider a custom exhaust installation for your own car, whether it is a classic like the Monte Carlo or a newer model.
The best reason to get a Scottsdale custom exhaust installation is to improve the horsepower and performance of your vehicle. It is the ultimate upgrade to really see what your car can do, tapping into the potential that’s always been lying under the hood.
By upgrading your vehicle’s exhaust, you can also improve its efficiency, helping you to reduce fuel costs and other maintenance expenses.
Hiring a Custom Exhaust Mechanic
Installing a custom exhaust is not really a job you can do at home, especially when you’re working with older models like the Monte Carlo. You have to bend the pipes and run the system through a complex series of parts. Only a qualified and experienced Scottsdale mechanic has the tools for the job and the know-how to get it done right.
When you have a beautiful, vintage car like the Monte Carlo, you don’t want to risk ruining your investment and a fine piece of automotive history by attempting an upgrade that you don’t have the skills or experience to do. If you live in the Scottsdale Arizona area, give Scottsdale Muffler & Automotive a call to find out how we can help you with the custom exhaust installation that you’ve been waiting for to open up the power lying dormant in your vehicle.
