custom exhaust primary lengths...?

I'm restoring my '80's Can-Am car...factory injected 13B, peripheral port, wondering if anyone has any input on the latest thoughts on primary exhaust pipe lenths, equal/unequal, and overall exhaust length. I've heard several theories over the years. I'm just preparing to build system from 1 3/4"O.D. stainless stubs at ports. Will use 3"O.D. for main pipe after collector.

I didn't know there were any '80s Can-Am cars made.

I thought that Can-Am died in the mid-70s. There was a brief resurrection from the dead when they converted single center seat Formula 5000 cars by adding full bodies and calling them Can-Am in the late '70s - but they all had V-8 american engines.

Could your car be an IMSA GT Prototype Lite racer?

Hey Seann, I have some pictures of your car back in the day I will have to dig them up. I think they were from Mosport, but it may have been from Shannonville from a Regional. It was a converted March Atlantic Car I believe.

It may be worth more as an Atlantic Car, but it was a very very fast Can Am car.
