    Does anyone know where I can find stacks for my truck? I have an 87 K30 with a TBI 454 and I think some big 4" stacks coming up through my flatbed on each side would look great and make my big block rumble pretty good. I also think they would be pretty functional for those times my buddies say "its not THAT deep". If anyone knows a website or company where I could get some please let me know.

    Jones Exhaust makes chrome stacks. I think they are 3" though, and 50" tall. JTS-300 is the part number. I think I saw a price of $209 at Streetables

    Another problem I was wondering about is how to keep water out of them when it rains. Even if they turn 90 degrees at the top, I would think rain would still get into them. I dont want tractor flaps on top and I really dont want to have to use the coffee can method. Any thoughts?

    I am attemptting that same thing with my '74 C30, I have thought about the water and the snow, the only thing I could come up with was useing top hats, thay are not the flaps, but look like mini round tabels, with three thick rods, and a large diameter coin shaped peice of metal on top, as for the stacks, I have just use regular strait exsaust pipe, going about 6 inches about the cab, did not need to use stacks because the motor was a 292 inline six and does not make much heat, with a split muffler with one inlet, and two outlets. the hard part was trying to find a place to put the muffler, so to keep it from fuel lines, and hosees

    drill a hole in the bottom of the pipe where it bends towards the engine, or use a rubber flapper valve like they put on the exhaust of Ski Nautiques and other marine exhausts.
