I'm going for a custom exhaust whenever mine is smoged and running right (probalby a long while), glad to know it sounds as awesome as I thought it would sound

It only cost $200 at the custom exhaust place:)
sounds like my '78 Brat did when I had my custom exhaust but it wasn't dual. Go gen 1's with custom exhaust. They rock!!!
I'll get some pics up later.

he cut the y pipe before it joined together, so yes true dual.
so did you scrap the y-pipe and make it a true dual exhaust?

i got 2 1/4" pipe going into a performance resonator then stock the rest of the way back...
150 more bucks and he'll top it off with a magnaflow or something...

Matching you intake pressure with your exhaust pressure is the best way to go.
as for size of pipe only go:
stock size to same size
stock size to bigger size
big header to bigger pipe
If you don't think this is the case weld a plate on the end of your muffler then drill a small hole through it, you'll get the same results quicker

do you guys thing the glass pack should go up towards the y-pipe or towards the back?

Be careful, I did the same thing a few years ago, using very tightly clamped clamps and JB weld to get the muffler on the pipe, but it still fell off (on the freeway). It would be worth it getting another board member to weld it for you; Adam NDJ did mine for next to nothing.

yea, maybe that is the way to go, the glass pack actually has quite a bit of weight to it, so that will also put some strain on the piping. i am going to try and make some rubber hangers too.
yes, welding is your friend when it comes to exhaust. I welded mine all up on my '78 and had no leaks! Also, get a stock EA82 muffler and cut the metal hangers off of it and weld them onto key locations on your exhaust so it can hang from the stock location. Just make sure you hang it before you go welding it all up.
