The only one I know of that makes prefabbed kits is Waldron's Exhaust.  Very nice stuff, and top quality but not cheap.  Here are some listings here:



Having a local shop bend up a system is a good option, and usually cheaper.  I just had my '72 done last summer by a local guy who did a fantastic job. Plus then you can pick your own mufflers.

thanks for all your responses. This site is a great Resource to find answers. I’m working on a 72 Ranchreo gt N code. I’m fitting a top loader in it. Purchased a 73 Torino 4 speed car for the swap. Used a truck bell housing with a thicker block plate and it all fits nice

Very good, that sounds fun.

I would prefer to buy tailpipes alone which fit great, and have the rest bent locally by a shop. But it comes down to the costs, and how much you don't mind the crush bends almost all shops produce.

Also the cats, I don't plan to use them, but they do reduce sound a bit. So that comes down to sound levels for me, what mufflers can be quiet enough and still be high flow etc.
