  1. This system on your Avanti is very restrictive...especially the crossover pipe that connects the "cat" to the twin mufflers....My '83 had that same system.......My '85 Avanti has a similar system, however the factory took pains to smooth out the bends in that that connector pipe, which eliminates some of the restriction. Best solution, (in my opinion and if your State does not require an emission test on your '80 Avanti), is to replace what you have with a true dual exhaust system, as would be found on, say, a 1967 Avanti ll...It bolts right on, and relieves the engine of that back pressure in the exhaust system That's what I did on my '83 Avanti 'everyday driver' years ago.

    Avanti Window!

    That's it exactly!,.... assuming a vehicle isn't air conditioned, and many Studes aren't...the Hawk vent windows will pivot to something like 160', giving a nice shot of refreshing "Texas Air Conditioning"...whereas the Avanti window pivots out 60' at best...not nearly as useful. (In my humble opinion!)

  9. Don't get me wrong...it's a good question, and I believe the fellow that runs this forum would no doubt happily answer it........but the Studebaker Drivers Club forum administrator simply isn't like that, he resents being questioned about ANYTHING!!
