I am looking for a complete exhaust system for my 1975 with a GM 350 crate motor and 400 trans. In my Corvette Central catalog they are selling a complete system for $629.00. The set-up has Patriot headers, Magnaflow mufflers, etc. Has anyone out there used this system and if so how has it worked out for you? Thanks, Darrell

Darrell,
 
I purchased the same system from Corvette Central last summer.  I have a L48 350 with Edelbrock aluminum heads.  Everything fit well and I am very satisfied with it.

I've been wanting headers for a while now I'm just afraid of some of the horror stories I hear about installation. Did your's go in easy. Any problems with regular maintenance like spark plug replacement. or oil changes

No problems at all.  Because they are "tight-tuck" they take up little room.  No maintenance issues, either.
