anybody have an Allen's chambered exhaust on a 1980?

I am in dire need of a new exhaust on my 1980 4 speed. I am trying to decide between the 80 to 82 OFF ROAD Allen's chambered exhaust which is said to be "aggressely loud" or swap in a 79 or older crossmember and install the 68 to 79 Standard Allen's chambered exhaust which is said to sound more mellow. I have looked for videos of the "Off Road set up" Can't find them. The 68 to 79 system sounds decent. Before I go to the trouble of swapping cross members I'm curious to hear more about both systems. how loud, Do they sound to raspy Or sound like glass packs etc

I don't know anything about the sound but it really is all about age. If you are wunder 30, go with the loud off-road, If you are 30-55 go with the mellow and if you are over 55 go with the off-road since your hearing is shot and you'll need the louder just to hear them

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit
