1966 FITCH Toronado Phantom

Re: ‘77 Pontiac Grand Prix Bucket Seat Adaptation

A good, low restriction exhaust system will be hard to feel, but will definitely
show improved performance on your stopwatch. Better for mileage too.

The oil filter mount can have tubes running to your diesel radiator...
